According to “Utopia and Anti-Utopia” it says “That a loss of individual freedom is the cost of utopian striving.” I agree with this statement, the characters in the book possess no freedom therefore, how is it a perfect society? To go along with that statement “Freedom necessarily means that many things will be done which we do not like. Our faith in freedom does not rest on the foreseeable results in particular circumstances but on the belief that it will, on balance, release more forces for the good than for the bad” (The Giver’s Dystopia). Freedom is something we all possess in this world. Our freedom does sometimes result in negative actions, but without it we cannot be the person we want to be.
Like I said before nobody deserve to be treated like this or to be neglected medical care. They are just slowly killing off this beautiful culture. This book saddened me very much. It did though, open my eyes to just how poorly these students where treated. You cannot take away somebody’s family and beliefs.
He didn 't want to live a life without Mattie in it. He didn 't have enough money to run away with Mattie, but he could 've waited until he had enough and then go to Mattie. Instead, he decides to not think the situation through, and to just run from all the problems like he always has. This attempt puts them in a worse place than before. This event made Mattie paralyzed, and he had to end up living with two bitter women.
There is always another side to the story. Federalist, these people supported the constitution. Though they knew that the constitution wasn’t perfection yet, According to document 3 George Washington state 's ”We have errors to correct… would to God, that wise measures may be taken in time to avert the consequences we have but too much reason to apprehend”. George was sure that the constitution wasn’t perfect but that in this time of need they need something like it. They need a strong government, to win over the people who won’t support over fear of loss of natural laws, like mentioned in document 1 “Let us look and behold the distress which prevail in every part of our country… View these things, fellow citizens, and then say we do not require a new, a protection, and efficient federal government if you can” this document was quoted from a newspaper in Massachusetts.
Our Founding Fathers were merely men, but they utilized their strengths and conquered their weaknesses to propel themselves into godlike statuses that molded each and every one of them into prominent historical figures. Katori Hall explained this perfectly when she said “We expect our leaders to be godlike. But I feel that when people try to sanctify leadership it puts it out of the realm of regular people. And that’s where the greatest leaders come from – from the people.” Our Founding Fathers harnessed their personal strengths and weaknesses, but this alone wasn’t enough to help them to succeed. They exploited the assistance of anonymous individuals to aid them in acquiring these statuses and their success.
My happiness is not the means to any end. It is the end” (95). Towards the end of the story, Equality realizes that he is free to feel any emotion he wants, and however extreme he wants to.

We will give back our own endowments to our companions. All that we get from nature is a blessing; regardless of whether it is sustenance, water, daylight or whatever else; everything is a blessing.

When this ball of glory and hope was ripped away from him, his ambition took over. Later on, his guilt and paranoia speeds up his seclusion from society. Generally, isolation is the result of ones own action. OJ Simpson, Lindsay Lohan, and Miley Cyrus have all been subject to their own action, all resulting in the fall from society’s grace.

“Far too much value is placed on peace, stability and compliance with the surest path to greatness can only be found through rebellion”(Upland, Robbie). In order for nations to be transformed to gain their freedom and democracy, they must experience rebellion. A rebel is choosing to become an individual and refusing to follow a crowd that tries to prevent them from ever becoming an outcast. Why does the natural world thrive on rebellion? One of the strongest urges in human nature is to feel free.
