Mob Mentality

There are many examples of mob mentality that show up in Lord Of The Flies. Mob mentality almost is taking over the boys. They are becoming savages, an example that shows this is that in chapter 8 they behead the pig and stick the head on a stick. Most young boys don't and would never cut a pigs head off and put it on a stick, that is not a normal thing to do when your the age of 12 and younger. These boys are becoming more mob mentality behaviors. These behaviors are also showed through groups. An example of this is when they treat Robert as if he was a pig and treated him very bad and would abuse him that's an example of hazing. The boys also just think that it was just a game but most young boys wouldn't physically hurt their friends. I think that in Lord Of the Flies does not show any good mob mentality. Mob mentality is taking over these little boys behaviors.
