Jack represents an autocratic dictatorship. He has no interest in society or rescue. At first Jack seems content to hunt and play his quasi-war games. Later, like many emerging democracies, the military leader is not content to work in a democracy. Jack takes control and becomes the autocratic dictator who leads by fear instead of consultation and example. By the end of the novel Jack sets himself up as sort of a God/King, “Jack, now a leader sits on a great log, painted and garlanded as an idol.” The civilized democracy of Ralph has long been forgotten.
