Effectivness of the Law When Dealing with Global Enviroment in Achieving Justice for Individuals and Society

“Evil is not an external foe, it dwells in the heart of men”
This statement points out that while many people attempt to externalise evil, it is true that it is actually born and conceived in the hearts of men.
In William Golding's Lord of the Flies, Golding uses symbolism to reflect this idea of evil being innate within humans.
Golding uses the settings as different symbols throughout the novel. One of the first symbols is the main setting, the island. The island in itself represents isolation of the children. Since the children are isolated on the island, there is no way that the evil of the outside world could influence them to become evil. The island is also used to show that the environment, being so beautiful and pure. The island is described as a place where "the white surf flinked on a coral reef, and beyond that the open sea was dark blue. Within the irregular arc of coral the lagoon was still as a mountain lake--blue of all shades and shadowy green and purple"
Golding shows that the children are not conditioned by society or another satanic force to act in an evil manner; the innate evil within themselves causes them to act in such a way.
A river flows through the centre of the island providing the children with fresh water. This river represents purity on the island, before corrupted by “man”. The water runs pure and clean until the dead bodies, representing evil, are thrown into it by the “children” and pollute it. This symbolises again that island was pure and clean, empty of evil but because of the evil within “men” the island’s river now runs polluted.
Another setting which adds to the idea that evil is born within man is the "scar" where the plane crashed. When the plane crashed, it left a clearing in the jungle known as the scar. "All round him the long scar smashed into the jungle". The scar shows how a beautiful and innocent area is corrupted by man and the evil within him.
