Lord of the Flies how does Ralph boost the boys' morale?

During the second asembly the littlun with the mulberry coloured birth mark on his face raised the subject of the snake-thing. Although the boys mocked the littlun many of them felt a distinct sense of unease. Ralph boosted their morale and raised their spirits by telling them that he'd decided that they wanted to have fun and they wanted to get rescued. This simple statement shifted the boys attention away from the idea of beasts in the dark jungle and focused them instead on positive thoughts. Ralph lifted the boys spirits further when he said, "We want to be rescued; and of course we shall be rescued."

What is the main reason everything is falling apart Lord of the flies?

In the novel The Lord of the Flies, there is no "governmental" structure.

With no structure and no rules to follow, these children do whatever they want whenever they want, thus resulting in the fall of their "society."
