If our genetic diversity went away, we would all be the same. If everyone was the same, life would be incredibly dull, and boring. Our DNA would also be “linked.” If someone dies from disease, everyone would most likely die by that too since everyone would be the same, reducing the population by a great amount. Finally, limiting our genetic diversity limits reproduction. If everyone in the world had the exact same genetic code, everyone would be the same gender.
Hia actions reflect to his government. Harrison wanted to overthrow his government because of the way they express themselves in the government. They want to keep everyone equal including the way the people think. Harrison hates that so he wanted to overthrow the government. Equality and his people are already average, people uneducated, people not knowing how their minds process things.
May states “His outrage at the ludicrousness of sociopolitical fads and the stupidity of the people who support them are both at play in this story.” (May). People in society will allow themselves to be controlled by the government, but never think about how the people actually run the government because they're here to serve the people needs. People today can vote on who they believe seem beneficial for their needs. Their need to be a change to where there's more flexibility for people to rotate their schedule around. A true patriot are the ones who oppose, the ones who don’t just go along, those who follows truth and righteousness and try to pass it along to the society.
It was that the learning was too easy. This is a great sin, to be born with a head which is too quick. It is not good to be different from our brothers, but it is evil to be superior to them. The Teachers told us so, and they frowned when they looked upon us"(Rand, 21). This transgression exist because if there was superiority in this society the old ways the Councils and the elders strayed away from would try to overpower again.
“Perfection is shallow, unreal, and fatally uninteresting” (Anne Lamott). Can you picture our world as a perfect society? For perfection to be achieved everything would have to change. Through the book, The Giver, Lois Lowry shows how a perfect society is not always ideal for everyone. The rules of the society portrayed include a discipline wand, chosen spouse, and release.
One of the many new gadgets that allow patients to visit their doctors in a faster way are virtual doctor visits. Not only are the disabled capable to access their medical issues and can find a way to solve them, doctors can also have a way to diagnose better, for they do not have to stress over the problems they face in appointments where they interact physically. Additionally, patients can be sure that they receive their medicine and antibiotics by remote patient monitoring, which allows the diseased to be identified whenever his or her blood level, blood sugar, blood pressure, heart rate, and weight, are too high or low, permitting them to receive the correct treatment and tips about their conditions. In addition, doctors may even function with robotic surgeons, in which they don’t have to be present in an operation room, meaning patients can have the surgery in any hospital that they wish. In other cases, the doctor stays in the room, but the robotic device provides a faster procedure, which can result in less scarring and a faster recovery time.
Multivac relies upon human input, but the data Henderson was receiving from the generals was drastically skewed. Each leader wanted to make themselves look good, and to fix this Henderson tampered with the data. He messed with the numbers until they looked right, and for this he feels ashamed. Until Swift admits he did not rely on the data from the great Multivac, and instead used an older machine to decide what to do. He flipped a coin to make the great decisions.
Since the leader has all the power to himself, people then resign their general will to the government. Corruption could be lessened – or better yet, eliminated – since the power is limited when it comes to those who are in a lower position. Also, processing laws are implemented faster and easier unlike the process they do in democracy wherein two or three branches have to discuss it which then takes months and even worse – years. In this type of government, protection of the people is assured wherein laws that would be better for the common good are implemented. The only problem that would be bad for this is if the dictator seated is an extreme leader who would see violence as the best way to bring peace and stability to the country.
Art shouldn’t be be used to satisfy our appetites. the appetites of the consumer society that we have built. The society which has no use for beauty because it isn’t useful, this change affect our whole culture diminishing beauty from it forever. Our surroundings have become ugly because the only thing considered while building is personal gin and usefulness of the construction, there is no longer place for large golden fountains, curvy ornaments and mesmerizing green gardens. Instead we have grafiti and poster covered walls made by people trying to make some profit “vote for me” the poster says.
The same idea is applied to Bradbury’s world. Making people equal is another reason the government adds to justify its dictatorship. To further explain, books are a symbol of intellect, and since not all people like reading or know how to read, then all are not equal for some are more knowledgeable than the other. This is how Beatty, the head of the firemen department, explains it,” Not everyone born free and equal, as the Constitution says, but everyone made equal” (Bradbury 28). As a result, the world becomes full of clones and individuality becomes an accusation almost a crime.
