"The Lord Of The Flies" wasn't written as a children's novel, or a treatise on ethics, or any of that shit. It's an analogy of the future and our past. We're all the cosmic debris from a crashed airliner and we're splitting into two groups: the technocrats and the savages. You really don't want to know what Piggy symbolises — or who the rescuing officer is at the end.
