As we look at The Giver’s rules, family, and leadership we see the vast differences and also the shocking familiarities. In The Giver it is very apparent that the rules are numerous and air tight.

That’s what starts to happen, when you know it is possible for you to feel pain you have no control over. You become vulnerable. Because the possibility of pain is where love stems from. And that, for me, was very bad news indeed.” It discovers that it does care, and in the following chapter, when Gulliver attempts suicide, the narrator is there, rushing to protect his fall, and using its alien powers to revive him when he dies, going against its orders to kill him.
