It's All Political

In chapter 13 of Thomas C. Foster’s novel How to Read Literature like a Professor, he states that nearly all writing is political on some level. Even when a book appears to be non-political, say for example about an individual, there are usually matters of autonomy, free-will and self-determination that have to do with the individuals relationship with society at large.
In William Golding’s novel Lord of the Flies, it’s all political. Ralph, the fair haired boy who we are introduced to in the very first page of the book, will end up being the chief for a large part of the story. And when he finds a shell and blows it, causing all of the boys hidden throughout the island to come forth, they soon elect him leader. For a while, the boys follow his lead and do what he suggests in order to stay alive and get rescued. But a rival soon challenges him.   Jack is a boy who is sick of Ralph’s directions, and he proposes to the others that they make their own tribe. He says that they’ll hunt in the day and have feasts every night. Of course the foolish boys go for the food rather than the labor that would pay off in the end.
It soon ends up that Ralph, Piggy, and the little boys are the only members still in the original group. All of the others join the new leader, Jack. Shortly after that Piggy and Ralph go up to Jack’s fort to find that all of the other boys, who at first willingly joined Jack’s tribe, are now subject to Jack’s tyrannical rule.
