This community is perfectly planned out, a place in what seems to be perfect community, In this community from the age of one your life is already planned out. Your childhood will last until the age of 12, this when you receive your job assignments. You will work with no worries about difficult, no choices, or overwhelming emotions or when your time is through.This society, its citizen of choices to ensure sameness, equality and fairness. This is shows the bad side of living in a perfect world, and shows how the little choices you have, and living in the perfect world lacking of choices.
The citizen in this society have no choices about anything except where volunteer, this citizen are also stripped of many powerful and irreplaceable emotions and lastly the respect for human life has been completed demolished. Having your life planed out for you is normal but the point where you are have very little freedom to choose, they dont decide what they want to eat or wear, much less what they want to the rest of their life. It is almost as if choosing the wrong shirt could possibly endanger the entire community,This suggest Jonas or the rest of community dont get to decide what they wear.
I believe making choices is a significant part of our life. Making choices help develop the sense of responsibility and independence without choices, feelings, happiness, The giver are not truly discover themselves as an individuals. The citizen dont know how to appreciate the joys in their lives because they have never felt loneliness, They also do not feel lonely because they have never appreciated the true happiness of life. In this society everyone controlled the community for those have power. It explains the conflict between the desire to solve the problems of the society and the need for individual freedom.The Giver society being assigned a specific task for life, makes sense and seems for the good of the community. Everyone knows where they fit in, everyone pleased for what they do, what is told of them without hesitation. The giver know that their society needs to change.
They have no real choices, so they don’t experience true feelings, such as love. They come up with a plan to help the community. The Giver will help the community work through those feelings and show them the value of things that they have taken away, Citizen in this society cant feel emotion like we can. Feeling is very important it help us determine right from wrong and help us truly understand the consequences of our actions.If you do not remember your mistakes, you may repeat them. Jonas undergoes of training and he learns that just that if you feel no pain without memory, there is also no true happiness in your life. Being happy are needed to help us as human beings develop. We need to make choices on our own to learn from your mistake. Feelings are the one of the most important things in our life. Respect for human life, shows us that we need to value other opinions .As for my own conclusion for this book, The Giver Society is not a perfect place but in fact an unpleasant place.
The citizens in the society have no choice, they have their feelings ripped away without them even knowing and their respect for human life is gone. It always shows up to them in the most convenient times throughout their life, For me, when there is doubt about who I am as well as the decisions I need to make or have already made. Deciding that all must learn to see colour to feel pain and to show and receive love. We all have regrets. We all smile. We all frown. Sometimes all we need is an encouraging word from others or seeing that someone else is also going through pain to understand one’s self. In this book which consist thoughts there are stones in which no one would consider to glance at but also sees a new way to treasure.
