Here are some reasons why, one detail to support my answer is on page 188 and it states, “Take some of the pain, Jonas helped him.” This detail supports the answer because when Jonas felt empathy towards The Giver when he took some of the pain away from The Giver and this could make The Giver community more positive because they can learn from all of other people’s mistakes. Another detail to support the answer is on page 121 and it states, “He had seen a birthday party with one child singled out” This detail supports the answer because it shows Jonas showing empathy toward the child celebrating by himself and if people feel empathy toward the kid celebrating by himself he could have fun and that could make The Giver community more positive. This is why empathy would have been important to create a positive Giver community.
People have always wondered what a difference and similarity a dystopian/utopian society would have with our modern day society.With the help of modern day society and the givers society we can figure out the differences between Modern day society and the Givers society.Modern day society and the society in the Giver have many differences including Rules, Family, And Figurehead/Leadership; however they also have a few similarities.
"A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself." Joseph Campbell. Jonas from Lois Lowry’s The Giver makes that example true by making the choice to fight against the community. While his journey might differ slightly from what is considered an orthodox Hero’s Journey, he still has a journey consisting of steps and goals.
In The Giver by Lois Lowry, the main character, Jonas, can undoubtedly be considered a hero. Jonas’ actions throughout The Giver are a quality example of the archetypal pattern of the Hero’s journey, and to depict this I used a variety of text, illustration, and color throughout my graphic novel.
Imagine living in a community where one person is chosen to hold all of the world´s memories. Being alone, afraid and separate. Jonas has been through all of these emotions as the Receiver. Jonas's assignment to be the Receiver of Memory is a punishment. Jonas has to receive painful and harsh memories from the Giver, that no one else has to have. Jonas feels different from his friends, and realizes that he is not the same as everyone else. Jonas is learning more things about what the world is really like, and is realizing that his training will be more painful than what he thought.
Utopian (N) an imagined place or state of things in which everything is perfect. The key word there is ‘imagined’ as we haved learned in The Giver that not everything can be perfect; it 's just limiting the being of a human. By having such limitations, the people can’t hold their memories, can’t see color, and the government chooses their family. Jonas’s society is vastly different than ours in various ways.
Perfection is not necessary to have a good life. In the novel The Giver, the author, Lois Lowry, uses Jonas to show this message. Jonas lives with his family unit, with a set or rules that Jonas did not like. Until he met the giver, and everything changes Jonas´s life. This message of the novel Giver, shows perfection is not necessary to have a good life.
The Giver then told Jonas he would be glad to share that memory with him. He transmits the memory of a christmas morning, grandparents and love. Jonas liked the memory and wanted to be able to feel it all the time. When Jonas got home he asked his parents if they loved him, They were a little fluster about the word love and told him to pay attention to his precision of language. His father told Jonas that the word love is absolutely meaningless. They asked Jonas if he understands, Jonas say yes but does mean it. He didn't understand why that didn't feel that way toward him, the way he did for them. The Giver explains that the people of the community don’t feel emotion and feelings the way the two of them did because of sameness. (chapter
“You were put on this earth to achieve your greatest self, to live out your purpose and to do it courageously.” This quote by Dr. Steve Maraboli states that life has a purpose that you have to reach out to. The objects in life are growth and the discovery of new things, and that can’t happen unless you push your limitations. The main character, Jonas, in Lois Lowry’s The Giver goes through a similar encounter when he is specially selected as the Receiver of Memories for his community. With his assignment as the Receiver, Jonas begins to see his community differently and its absence in color, feeling, and choices. In order to live your life, you have to uncover new things, and when that happens, it will open a door for more things to discover.

The Giver is a novel that is set in a society that strives to be a utopia. A utopia is essentially a is “a place where no one has to make a decision, feel pain or even have a negative thought or a bad memory” (Goepfert). In The Giver their community focuses so intensely on this concept of a peace that they make many sacrifices in their pursuit to obtain it. This includes the loss of emotion, lack of individuality, deceit of the public, and a great burden on a small few. Ultimately the cost of this utopia is too high for this society.
What if we lived in a world of peace and equality? What if we lived in a world with no differences? A world with no social classes and inequality. That sounds pretty amazing doesn’t it? In Lois Lowry’s novel The Giver that is the reality. The catch? The catch is freedom. There is no room for being different, no room for spontaneity, no room for experimentation and breaking the rules. If you break the rules you will be caught and their is no room for forgiveness. Also, if you are diagnosed with a disease, or just simply sick, you must likely will be released into the “elsewhere” world.

In my conclusion I could like to say I understood what a concept of firstborn. As a firstborn you have to make sure you are taken care of your family if your father is not in the picture. And a firstborn is the favorite of all the children he get to do whatever he want to do and he gets whatever he wants. But being the firstborn sometimes can’t be good. An example of that is Rueben he was the firstborn in his family, but he decided to sleep with his father wife to the right of him being a firstborn was taken away from him and given to Joseph. So the lesson from that is don’t think you the firstborn you can do whatever you want to do because there is always that one person who is in your family willing to take your place as your father favorite
