Lord of the Flies by William Golding book cover

While reading the book Lord of the Flies by William Golding, the Novels & Society class (grades 10-12 elective class) explored how this book portrays our society now and in the past, and possibly the future.  

Ask a student from this class what they discovered about the concept of "When fear and chaos are present, our human nature will revert to the use of brutality".  

If you haven't read this classic book, read it and see what you think about this concept as well as how it reflect world events both in the past and present.
