What is the allegory in Lord of the Flies?

The main allegory for Lord of the Flies is that without civilization, savagery takes over. The Lord of the Flies and the Beast are not really physical characters. It is the evil that is in every human. Without civilization the boys unleashed this evil. Piggy stood for intellect which every civilization needs, when he died it showed that savagery had completely taken over. Also Simon stood for morality, but not because civilization told him to be moral, but because he knew that morality was natural. But this book shows the allegory that savagery is stronger and more natural than civilization, this it took over. The death of Simon indicates how morality and goodness cannot survive within savagery. Notice that this savagery stops when the navel man appears. he also stands for civilization and it has come back, so savagery is put away
