No one is allowed to be different, and everyone is supposed to be the same, which is expected to make the society equal. Despite government regulations, Equality’s individuality and intelligent characteristics combined lead him to rediscover the lightbulb. Equality’s intelligence is first step to rediscovering the lightbulb. Equality is intelligent, and his teachers dislike him for being intelligent. Equality said “The learning was too easy… The teachers frowned when they looked upon us” (Rand 21).
To start off, kids in our community are allowed to ride bikes at any age. However, in the community you must be nine years of age before younare allowed to ride a bike. Jonas is talking about how he recalls being a nine and getting his first bicycle. Jonas is hinking about this time and he says “The children all received their bicycles at Nine; they were not allowed to ride bicycles before then” (Lowry 13).

Without competition the pride in humans would deprive and the education wouldn 't be the same. The education system would require everyone to have the same knowledge. With that, if everyone one were to think and act the same, the progression of the community would come to a halt. There would be no new discovery or improvement in medicine, science, literature, etc. Without the urge to innovate or discover, a person can 't motivate themselves to achieve new thing because they know they 're not allowed.
Love and compassion for one another in families is a crucial component, as the bond between child and parent can never be stronger. Yet, in The Giver, there is no trace of love in between the members of what they call their ‘family unit.’ To name a family something so formal sounding without a trace of warmth can only mean for a more reserved gathering of people. Plus, Jonas, the protagonist of the novel, refers to his parents as Mother and Father, furthering the formality between parent and child. Additionally, the idea of equality is also crucial to all aspects of their society, meaning that no family can be any different than another. Unlike today’s society, a household cannot possess as many children and members as the guardians choose.
People like to think that a society with no crime, equality, and no wrong choices would be a perfect society; however, what is the price people pay for this “perfect” society? Most people think they know what 's right and what 's not, when they are given the choice. Nevertheless, when they are given the choice a wrong choice could greatly affect the society. The novel The Giver shows us this with a boy named Jonas who lives in a society where there are no choices, no individuality, ands lots of rules. Although this may seem like a utopia, it could very easily turn into a dystopia .
This is saying that the people in the society all have to be equal. No one is stronger than anyone else, smarter than anyone else, or better than anyone else. The reason no one is more powerful is because they are all equal and treated the same. The reader of the book can tell that that equality is scared. Equality is in a hiding spot in a little tunnel.
In the short story “Harrison Bergeron,” everyone is equal. On page one, it says “Nobody was smarter than anybody else. Nobody was better looking than anybody else. Nobody was stronger or quicker than anybody else”. Having a perfect world is ideal, but there are many things could go wrong and it could ruin everything.
