Freedom

One of the things listed in the preamble is "a more perfect Union." This is one of the things that is challenged in the present. There are people who do help so they are able to create a perfect union. However, A perfect Union is impossible in our community. There is always a problem and people have the right to think, say, and do what they want. There are also bad people who hate different communities and protestors to try and change something about the community. For example (Dogs should go to school).

This doesn't really bother me because I know nothing can be perfect like Jonas's society, well Jonas's society isn't exactly perfect, but whatever. We do have problems, but most of them are pretty minor to us. 

This is portrayed perfectly in the giver. You notice that everyone works together when you read the book. There isn't any fighting because no one can and since freedom is mostly restricted in the giver.

Career Choices

Cesar R. Having someone pick a job for you might be a good thing. It can be hard to find a job that suits you and the people in the book might see what they think is good for you. This means you don't have to worry about anything. It's also hard to pick a job when your only twelve years old. Them picking a job for you will also result in less consequences because of the job problems you get when picking your own job.

There is also problems with someone picking your job. One problem is that you may not like the job that is picked. You don't think it's what you want at all. Another thing is that you may like it, but you change your mind. You found out you weren't good at it or didn't like it.


What if?

Life would be messed up without history. We learn from our mistakes. Thats why we have them. Without our knowledge of history, Everyone may forget what they were suppose to do and don't have the knowledge of when you messed up. You also need to know who was important in life and what animals existed because of people wanting to know something that interest them or become a famous person or have a job as a scientist. Plus we may not have America's awesome moments in history. We also need to know how to advance in technology by using what we had back then.

Jonas' POV change

Joans's point of view changed in chapter 11. He starts thinking "why don't we have this stuff anymore." He seems to question about his community having "sameness." Since Jonas is feeling the memories of The Giver, he might think that while the world before was somewhat nice and amazing to how it is now. He may compare his community to before. Jonas questions that since The Giver has power why can't you change how the community is now. The Giver said he has Honor, not power. Jonas frowns when he knows the memories he felt are restricted in his society.

Blog 6: New chapter Title

Chapter 8 would be... The Unexpected Selection

I choose this because of the chapter being about Jonas. Jonas's number was skipped and he still wondered why. Then Jonas was surprised and confused when he was "selected" by the Chief elder "the receiver of memory." I choose this because this one seemed to be a lot more interesting (to me at least).

Choices, Choices

Its a bit hard, but I choose having your own choices. If choices are made for you, then it means you can't take care of yourself. Also the choices that are picked out for you, may not suit you. When your able to make your own choices, you decide whats best for you and others. When you make a bad choice it can haunt you for a long time. However, they are like mistakes. You learn from those choices you made. This is what I have to say. Oh and without our freedom of choice, I couldn't choose on which argument I agree on.

Two worlds Colliding

Jonas's community is similar to ours in a couple ways. Blue eyes light

We both have laws/rules that we follow to make the world a better place. Jonas's community have jobs that are similar to ours. For example: The nurturer is kind of like the doctor who takes care of the new born babies. They also still have school, recreational activities, and rituals.

Those are some similarities from Jonas's community to our community. There are a lot more difference between our community and his. You start as an adult at the age of 12 rather than like 18. 12 is an early age to start working. People assign jobs for you, rather than you choosing your own job. When you get old or break a severe rule, you get "released" as a punishment or if your elderly. Animals also don't seem to exist in Jonas's world. In Jonas's world, each age up to 12 is different and all "newchilds" are adopted.

In conclusion, I think our community is the best. Lets see... 1 Our community doesn't have rules like the ones in The Giver. We have more freedom which is perfect. So thats why I think our community is better. Oh and we also get to live with our real family.
