/m27 LORD OF THE FLIES, may not stand! I re-read it a few years ago, and viewed the movie. There are "truths" and "untruths". What happens when a mix of somewhat developed beings are thrust together can vary greatly.

That early Brit experiment in giving very young students control of their educations process led to a system of highly detailed rules and laws governing all behavior. Tyranny from below. I can't remember the name.

The UPLIFT scenario is FAR, FAR from Lord of the Flies. The Bootstrap Uplift Scaffolding is designed to dampen the negative aspects, while enhancing the positive.

That we have NO parents or leaders in this venture is important.

Lord of the Flies still stands.
