In contrast to the chaos that the Maze appears to represent, the Glade appears to symbolize order, stability, and security. Every boy has a role in the workforce, ensuring the continued production of food as well as the maintenance of shelter in the Glade. As Newt says, this order prevents the boys from succumbing to the fear of living near the Maze. As such, the Glade represents the human ability to construct well functioning societies despite extreme circumstances.
