The Lord of the Flies, a profound work of fiction, tells the story of British choir boys marooned on an island after a plane crash at sea. Without adult supervision some of the boys turn into homicidal monsters. I think this story tells us a fundamental truth about human nature: young boys are savages by nature, and it is the responsibility of parents, especially fathers, to civilize them. Unfortunately, most young blacks today lack the civilizing influence of fathers; ergo, they act like savages.
