The need to belong was a prevalent issue in the Lord of the Flies. The boys needed to be a part of a group. In Ralph's group you had civilization to some degree, in Jack's you belonged to what they saw as a more powerful group of hunters. Everyone wants to belong somewhere, and in the case of this novel, you were a part of one group or another............... but the last thing you wanted was to be left on the outside. There's safety in numbers, to belong provided the boys with a sense of safety.
