The Giver vs. Modern Society

The Giver vs. Modern Society

The Giver vs. Modern Society Ever want to live in a perfect society? Most of us wish we could. However, the reality is that there is no perfect society. If there were, it would probably look something like the dystopian society in The Giver. While there are some similarities to our society, it turns out there are many more differences.

Thesis: The Giver Society is different from modern society in three ways: there is no lying, they must use precise language, and they practice Release. Rule in The Giver Society: No Lying TLQC: When Jonas gets his assignment, he realizes he can lie, which goes against the rules of the

society. He explains, He had never, within his memory, been tempted to lie. Asher did not lie. Lily did not lie. His parents did not lie. No one did (Lowry 71). Why is this important? If everyone knows the truth, there are no

secrets from the government. This allows the government to have better control of their society. Vs. Rule in modern society: Freedom of Speech Its o.k. to lie. 1st Amendment gives

us the Freedom of Speech. We have a choice to lie or not to lie. Why is this important? Having this right allows us to express ideas, even if these ideas disagree with those in

control. This protects us from the government controlling everything we say. End of example
