    Question:
    What issues of morality are people responsible for when coexisting within a civilization?
    Answer:
    - giving everyone an equal chance to be part of the civilization
    - treating everyone equally
    Relating this to the book:
    - not everyone was treated equally ie. Piggy is ostracized and the littluns are counted as unimportant
    Question:
    What ethical responsibilities do we owe to our fellow man?
    Answer:
    - in a perfect society we would be fair towards everyone. However, in the huge society
    we live in today, that proves to be difficult.
    ~ the website below states that anything done that benefits or will lead to a benefit of the entire species
    is ethical or moral. ~
    http://www.onelife.com/ethics/brule.html#5
    Question:
    How can you tell if something benefits an entire species? Or if it will lead to future benefit of a species?
    Answer:
    Different people believe different things. To one person, doing something to some part of the world will or will eventually benefit everyone. Another person would think that doing 'that' wouldn't do any good to any species. The question has the same response as "what is Good and what is Evil?" Everyone has their own opinions, and therefore every answer and view is different.

    Lord of the Flies is essentially a book on a group of boys who, after a plane crash, try to survive on an uninhabited island. However, the whole book is full of symbols. During this project, we will explore how what happens to the boys on the island relates to the adult world they were without before they were rescued.
