As kids people get taught what is wrong and right from a parental figure or experiences of life teach us how to react to different situations. When we finally turn adults no one is there to remind us of what’s good and what's bad so we have to use our past experiences and our knowledge to help guide us. Each adult shapes their societies for their generation and many more generations to come. Mohandas k. Gandhi and Susan B Anthony’s speech along with the article Selma to Montgomery March on history show that civil disobedience is a moral responsibility. For example civil disobedience is the moral responsibility of each and every single citizen because they are the second and largest half of what makes up a state and in order to keep the balance in power people have to fight for what they believe is correct.
Acquiring a job, whether it be in a doctor’s office or a fast-food restaurant, can transform a person.

An example would be in The Giver on page 8, paragraph 6 the novel states, “Two children—one male, one female—to each family unit.” The reason why this excerpt from The Giver shows the difference between the families from the “real world” and dystopia is because there is no limit of children in a family (excluding china). The family in the dystopian novel is also called a family unit while in our world we call our family simply family or even loved ones, friends, our family can be also our friends, colleagues. Something that is same between both societies are that these families are made up of none DNA related kids and the parents of those families are monogamous and only stay with his or her spouse till death. In contradiction to the last sentence there are non monogamous parents, divorce, and biological kids in our society so that makes a

In a community that values Sameness, there is no room for individuality, which is an important theme in The Giver. In Jonas’s community, being your own person is frowned upon. The Chief Elder says at the Ceremony of Twelve, “You Elevens have spent all your years till now learning to fit in, to standardize your behavior, to curb any impulse that might set you apart from the group.” It is only in their Assignments that their differences are acknowledged and honored (Anderson 37). Children do not celebrate individual birthdays, they do not even know their actual birthdays; instead, they turn the next age with their group mates at the December Ceremonies. When The Giver gives Jonas the memory of a birthday party, “with one child singled out and celebrated on his day,” Jonas comes to understand “the joy of being an individual, special and unique and proud”.

“Why don’t we have “White history Month?” Because white history month is every month other than February. The culture of power determines which version of history is told and retold.” Mr. Hanson, my high school social studies teacher always told us, “The winners get to decide how history is told.” I mean, prior to the Women’s Rights Movement, women were stuck in the home while men went to work and supported them, but then women were liberated and able to get jobs working outside of the home, right? That’s what they taught us in school. WRONG. White, middle to upper class women were “stuck in the home.” Woman of color have ALWAYS “worked out of the home.” In fact, the women of color were probably working in the homes of white women about which
These different aspects of her life can be seen at several point in the book such as at the outset of book two she speaks about her arranged marriage her father commits her to the arranged marriage Before I was twelve years old I was betrothed and the betrothal lasted two years. , so at the age of 14 Gluckel was married to her first husband. This demonstrates that she was raised in a similar fashion to many women of the seventeenth century. This practice of arranged marriages was not uncommon common to the time period leaving no choice of marital partners to the women and also how women in general were viewed throughout society.
