In Lord of the Flies, Chapter Seven, the trouble between Jack and Ralph ramps up. Ralph continues to try and get Jack to see how 'off' his priorities are. Both engage in a type of power struggle. One wants to keep the group together and plan ways to survive and maybe get rescued, while the other is into living it up and doing whatever he wants to do, when he wants to do it. The conflict is man vs man. On a deeper level, it is a war between man's civility and his beastly nature. The pig hunt is Ralph's undoing, however, for a couple of reasons. First, he enjoys it. The blood lust is aroused in him and he kills the pig just as savagely as the others. Then, when they are all around the campfire, he brags about how he shoved his spear into the pig, too. This only made him look weak and secondary to Jack, who was already very much in touch with his savage nature.
