In the book The Lord of the Flies, who do you think should have been the leader from the beginning? Yes=Ralph, No=Jack

  • Ralph was the better leader

    Sure Jack did get things done, And he was the obvious choice of chief because he was already the leader of the choir. He was a pretty creepy character, But also kind of sweet. Ralph still should have been the chief because otherwise Jack would have let it go to his head that he always should be leader. It is good that Ralph challenged him for leadership because now Jack learned a life lesson(hopefully).

  • Yes, Ralph had natural leadership qualities.

    In Lord of the Flies, Ralph should have been the leader from the beginning, because he had the strongest leadership qualities. Ultimately, it doesn't matter who the leader was, because the point the book was making was to show that society would break down without laws, no matter who the people in society are, even people as clean as British school boys.

  • Otherwise, Novel Would Be Different

    Ralph should have been the leader from the beginning, otherwise the novel would have turned out differently. It was Ralph's decisions that led to Jack's ability to form the rival group. Without the rival groups, the plot of the novel is lost entirely. Jack wouldn't have fared any better because there was antagonism between the two boys from the beginning.

  • Jack is the reason they lived

    Jack was the one who made sure they were all fed. Sure he was a butt, and i wouldn't trust him with my kid, but he was the sole reason the kids got off the island alive. If it were not for him the kids would probably be even more violent due to starvation.

  • Jack got stuff done

    He got all the kids to join him. Sure he was a butt, but he knew what to do and how to do it. He is the only reason the kids were alive to be rescued. If it were not for him they would have died or gone mad hungry.
