Lord of the Flies

In chapter 3, Simon suggests that "the beastie" might be real. In light of the story, is he not a strange one to be suggeting this? is there a sense in which he is right?

This is found on either page 52 or 66 depending on what copy of the book you have

Simon is quite logical; he's a good boy, with a good heart...... Simon words are true, he has insight the other boys lack into what is happening to them emotionally and spiritually...... and he's right in the sense that he understands the "beastie" dwells within them. The "beastie" is the uncivlized behavior and thoughts.
