    Interesting article in The Guardian, where the boys behave much better than they do in Golding’s novel:
    The real Lord of the Flies: what happened when six boys were shipwrecked for 15 months
    When a group of schoolboys were marooned on an island in 1965, it turned out very differently from William Golding’s bestseller, writes Rutger Bregman

    Yes, I saw that - fascinating. Rosseau triumphing over Hobbes.
