William Golding wants to explain the important role of war in everyone of us. In this case he explains that war is a game which every human being knows. Golding describes the real nature of a human being and wants to make clear that none of uns is as innocent as we think, because the human never gave up this war game and will never get out of it (look at ending of the story).
