    Lord of the Flies: Aftermath

    If there were a 20 year reunion for the boys that survived Lord of the Flies... how many showed up? How many didn't show because they were dead? Would they serve ham? Did any of them eat bacon ever again?

    I'd be curious to see a breakdown on what you think they main survivors might have done with their lives.
    People think they understand their own mortality, even when that understanding has just changed.

    Graded? No. Judged? Quietly. Deadline: indefinite.

    Are you invoking "Lord of the Flies" in a literal sense? Because your title is a near-perfect metaphor for what when down on INTP Central and what exists on this site. The survivors are here.

    Yes. According to Ralph, only two people died: Simon and Piggy. Everyone forgets Simon got stabbed to death by the rest of the kids the night before Piggy got squished by a rock. Ironically, everyone in the book wanted to forget killing Simon too.

    I think one of the signs of a successful allegory about human nature is that real human behavior readily lends itself to comparison to the allegory.

    Stand clear of the closing doors, please.
