Quote 16

Jack pointed suddenly.

“His specs – use them as burning glasses!”

Piggy was surrounded before he could back away. (2.159-161)

Piggy’s glasses become the boys’ one technological advancement. We wonder why Jack is the boy that thinks of using them.

Quote 17

"…fear can't hurt you any more than a dream. There aren't any beasts to be afraid of on this island . . . Serve you right if something did get you, you useless lot of cry-babies!" (5.79)

Jack isn't winning any Mr. Sensitive awards here. He's also wrong: fear can hurt you; and there are beasts on the island.
