Sam is determined on becoming rich and getting a “a gold mountain” but he lacks a good interaction technique. “Sam rarely smiled...He rarely spoke” (4) also his attitude towards customers are below average as he “glared at his customers from behind the glass.” (5).

“Man is free at the moment he wishes to be.”(Voltaire). Many of us have grown up in a world that is fairly free and haven’t really gotten oppressed or anything like that.

Crispin was born into the peasant and the serf class so he had basically no human rights.
Individualism is abouting creating yourself through choices. In The Giver this cannot happen because you can’t make your own decisions like what your job will be, or who you will marry, or even your children’s names. “‘...what if we could hold up things that were bright red, or bright yellow, and he could choose?’”(98). This quote is explaining how we can become more individual by choosing for ourselves what color to choose. “Now, for the first time in his twelve years of life, Jonas felt separate, different”(65) Jonas is feeling different because he has become more of an individual by being the only Receiver of Memory.
Through Chaucer we can see that he was educated, but yet part of the lower class because he didn't have any clothes on his back. As a decision to become a knight, William through Chaucer, made him come up with a line of unknown ancestors to be able to participate in the tournament.

Throughout the places they traveled and the new things they saw , we are able to capture an image of how society was divided and formed through the lower and higher status. The lower status were beggars and lived in rundown places, like his father's house, it was a little house with no furniture or appliances and his little house had a leak in the ceiling.

The relationship between the expeditioners seemed to be that of bosses and workers. But, every expedition member was a free man because indentured servants were not yet a thing and I don’t believe laborers are considered not free. This truth really rattled my early thoughts that the expeditioners were all equally poor working class men seeking new lives. When in reality, almost a third of the expeditioners were gentry class citizens and most of the others were either unskilled laborers or ex-military. They only had 12 or so craftsmen and essentially no farmers.
