Jack continually demonstrates acts of violence like slashing candle buds or stabbing trees. He tries very heard to convince others, and himself, that he is a a tough guy. Where Simon finds the candle buds beautiful, Jack destroys them. Jack becomes an agent of destruction on the island. He represents violence and destruction over beauty and caring.
