Lord of the Flies Mob Mentality
Mobs can be good and bad but it depends on the crowd. Bad mobs can be harming and could hurt people and groups just because of dumb anger. Mobs can be good too, and an example of that could be flash mobs, and mobs doing something really cool for good. Mob mentality relates to Lord of The Flies in the way that when Jack kills the pig he stakes the pigs head on a spear in the ground which shows a form of savagery and a bad mob mentality. Another example is they torture Robert but insist that they were "poking" him and that it was just a game while really they were hurting him. There really is no source of positive mob mentality with the boys on the island while the only thing they do is savage like.
