hey guys,
I'm assuming, and hoping, that some of you have read the book lord of the flies.

for those of you who havent, "In the book the conch is used as a trumpet to call everyone together and held by whoever is speaking at meetings, symbolically representing democracy and order."

essentially, whoever is holding the shell has power, and what they say is law.

are you guys able to think of any modern examples of this, something-an object preferably- that has the same power nowadays, as the conch did in the book

any help would be great, thanks

A judge's gavel is the best example I could think of, a podium sort of fits the description as the person standing behind it usually has the attention/respect of the audience when they are speaking.

What about the Queen of England? She has a crown that belongs to her, and when it's on her head she rules. It isn't the best example but it is all I can come up with at the moment.

In my interpretation of the book (which I never had to study, thank god, and therefore quite enjoyed) I always saw the conch as representing money and/or resources. The person (Ralph I think) who found it was leader from the beginning, and whoever was in control of it had power.

edit: I would kill for a conch-bong.

I thought that book was quite good, didn't have to study it though so I didn't have to sit through over-analysis. As said before, money is probably the best example. Also, sometimes when people are sharing stories or something, one of them will hold a glass or something to indicate who is talking.

I think the device similar to this is called an electric guitar.
