In The Giver the people that lived in the community were made to be equal, but that created unhappiness. The people in the community are forced to be equal and no one leaves the community, the people don’t have feelings, and are color blind. The people in the community can’t be themselves. Also in the community, the people don’t have feelings. In the book, it says, ”Attention, a reminder all stirrings must be reported in order for treatment to take place”(Lowry 21).
It wouldn’t matter for a newchild’s toy. But later it does matter, doesn’t it? We don’t dare to let people make choices of their own.” (Document E) Basically the book is saying that the members of the community don’t even know that their choice. Jonas and the members of the community don’t freedom to have color, and to make their own choice. The society he is used to think was the perfect, but they have been hiding things from them.
It was CFS’s loss of money from this freebie problem; the employees naturally would not want to jeopardize their relationship by standing out. Under the Den’s discipline system, since the management did not show enough concern on this matter, Susan chose to keep quiet after talking to one student manager. What seems to influence the perceptions and behaviors of other Devil’s Den employees? This company lacks of disciplinary consequences of a series of problems. Obviously, management ignored all the problems and be lazy to make a mover to be better.
He explains how this is crippling our culture as whole not knowing what someone could say and causing people not to speak their mind. He goes on to say telling us how we protect ourself. We have to learn that people disagree and it doesn't matter if you are a everyday, day-to-day citizen or an elected
It effectively criticizes the postmodern culture, by presenting a world laden with problems due to the characteristics of postmodernity. It raises questions about morality and underscores the lack of solutions for these moral issues due to the lack of a governing body and a rational order. In the game, aside from small areas in the world under the army’s control, the rest of the world is no longer bound by laws and regulations. A social contract, where a “persons' moral and/or political obligations are dependent upon a contract or agreement” (Friend), is not compulsory for one to live in this world. The players control Joel, the protagonist, most of the time.
But in the Harrison Bergeron short story, you can’t express anything at all, and you are forced to do more things. The Giver is more accepting than the Harrison Bergeron story.Samuel Johnson 's quote is trying to say that equality is not as good as it seems because no one gets to express themselves, which is seen in The Giver and in Harrison Bergeron. In The Giver, it shows equality is not such a good thing because some people have to keep following all the rules in order to stay all the “Same.”In the giver, the community shows not liking differences or mistakes, for example, if a baby was weak and cried too much then it would be “Released” also known as the word kill. Since they want everything in their community to have no problems they try everything they can to have everything just right not to much no less but just right. They want this because of the problems are a big issue and need to be fixed.
Going against the society can be diverged into three different aspects: going against the public acclaim, going against the culture and going against the laws. These aspects of ‘individual vs. the society’ conflict are highly seen in Fahrenheit 451 and in Romeo and Juliet. Connection Point 1: Going against the public acclaim The common belief of the people in a society is the essential thing that keeps them together. This belief might be towards religion, ethics, daily life etc. The common belief in F451 was that citizens weren’t supposed to observe or think.
I do not believe his message is realistic, as he preaches about living off the land, and advises to not buy anything you don’t need or can’t make yourself, which would ruin society due to making it less reliant on each other. This would remove the need to communicate with each other, thus going against the point of having a society. Despite the supposed “benefits” of individuality, it is nearly, if not completely impossible to achieve it, especially in the case of Christopher McCandless. This is because the stress of doing everything for yourself is too much for anyone to handle. You have to care for yourself, feed yourself, find water, and find shelter, all while having to deal with the stress of the environment around you.
think that leaders not is born, it is made because we needed the leaders come from different backgrounds and life experiences. If the people have not any military experience contribute, he has not born in an influential family, he has not gone to suitable schools or has not something opportunism, for example, you married your boss’s daughter or have luck in the right place in the right time, then it make him cannot do the leader. Also, people can be guidance, training and skills development to become leader. Some people think it is not everybody can do the leaders, it is biases. However, this ignores the fact that the leadership you can find everywhere in society, in the economic and social status of the multi-level, individual really a different sampling.
Members of the community are not allowed to make decisions of their own, weather it being their choice of spouse or job. From the time they are born till they are released the government watches them very very closely to make sure the choose the correct job, spouse or family unit for them. As Jonas says “... we don 't dare let people people make choices of their own …” ( Lowery pg. 98 ). The Giver responds to this by adding “ He might make the wrong choice.”( Lowery pg.
