He knows that only fear can win him the leadership which is in Ralph’s hands.
That is why Ralph is asking the hunters and other boys to become wise and sane, as fear is nothing more than a dream.
But later in the novel, he leads a group of savage hunters who kill Piggy and hunt Ralph, their former leader.(Chapter-Three)This sentence is about Ralph, the leader, and Jack, his opponent. When they meet, they are always wary of each other, as evil against good.
They do not understand each other.(Chapter-Three)This omniscient narrator of the novel speaks this line.
He also asserts that they are not savages and wild people.
Obeying rules means that they are civilized and cultured. However, on the contrary, Jack represents disorder, chaos, and savagery.
He is furious when he loses the election to Ralph and continually pushes the boundaries of his subordinate role in the group.
Early on, Jack retains the sense of moral propriety and behavior that society instilled in him—in fact, in school, he was the leader of the choirboys.
And like a dream, it cannot hurt them.(Piggy, Chapter-Five)Piggy speak these words to Ralph when he sees that Ralph is not calling the assembly and assert his authority as the leader.
It shows that Piggy is the sane voice among the children on the island.
