Transcript of The Giver

In
The Giver
citizens are under constant surveillance, citizens conform to uniform expectations, information and freedom is controlled, the government is totalitarian, the natural world is banished and the dystopia gives the illusion it's a utopia.
Dystopian Paragraph 1
In
The Giver
citizens are under constant surveillance because the government put up cameras everywhere. The government wants to watch them and make sure they are following all the strict rules of the community correctly like no lying, no violence, be respectful and apologize. If they don't follow the rules correctly they could be released to elsewhere. The citizens don't think much of the cameras they just think it's for their own safety.
Dystopian Paragraph 2
Paragraph 1
In
The Giver
they do not fear the outside world because they don't know there is an outside world. In
The Maze Runner
they do fear the outside world because the flare is a terrible disease that is in the outside world and the maze doesn't have the flare. They also fear the creators that sent them into the maze.
Paragraph 3
In
The Giver
the natural world is banished because the government made a new world where violence and freedom is forbidden. The reason for this is because the natural world destroyed it's self so in the new world the government has complete control over all the citizens. In
The Maze Runner
there is no government telling them what to do so therefore the natural world is not banished.
The Giver
is a different dystopian society then
The Maze Runner
because in
The Giver
they don't fear the outside world, they don't live in a dehumanized state, the natural world is distrusted and the government gives the illusion of being a utopia.
The Giver
Paragraph 2
In
The Giver
they do not live in a dehumanized state because they have food that is already prepared for them to eat 3 times a day. They also have supplies to use whenever they need to use it. In
The Maze Runner
they fend for themselves and use whatever they can find.
Paragraph 4
In
The Giver
the government gives the illusion of being a utopia because the government acts super happy and like nothing is wrong at all. In The Maze Runner the Gladers know there in a dystopia because grievers try to kill them and beetle blades watch their every move.
In
The Giver c
itizens conform to uniform expectations because they follow the strict rules of the community. They do this by respecting others, not participating in any violence and using precise language. They each preform a job that is chosen for them and they also are expected to wear a certain uniform according to their job and/or age. If they fail to follow theses expectations they will be released to elsewhere.
Thesis Statement
Dystopian Paragraphs
Dystopian Paragraph 3
In
The Giver
information and freedom is controlled because the government didn't tell them what the world was like before they made the new society. If they did know what it as like they would want more freedom. The government gives the citizens injections everyday to prevent them from seeing colour and thinking about things that could destroy the society like violence, love and freedom. Also when they break one of the rules or do something the government doesn't approve of they will be released to elsewhere. The citizens think that means they will put the person is a different community where its actually when they execute the person so they won't be a bother anymore.
Dystopian Paragraph 4
In
The Giver
the government is totalitarian because the citizens can't vote for who they want as a leader and they have no control over who is in charge of them. Their jobs are chosen for them so if someone wanted to be a doctor and the government said that they want that person to be a drone pilot that person would have no say and would be forced to be a pilot. Their family is also assigned for them which means they can not have there own children and a job position called the birth mother will be chosen for a woman who will make the babies for other families in the community to have.
Dystopian Paragraph 5
In
The Giver
the natural world is banished because there once was a society that destroyed its self because of too much freedom. Now a new society has been created where violence and freedom is forbidden and you must obey the strict community rules so that history won't be repeated.
Dystopian paragraph 6
In
The Giver
the Dystopia gives the illusion of being a utopia because the government acts super happy and like nothing is wrong when there is. The reason for this is because the government is making it seem like being released to elsewhere is going to another community. It's actually when the government gives you an injection that kills you because you broke a rule and they don't want to set an example that they can get away with that.
Dystopian Protagonist Paragraph 1
Jonas the protagonist in
The Giver
feels trapped and is trying to escape because he feels lonely after his job gets picked for him as the receiver of memory. The rules of his job clearly state that he can't talk to anyone about his job. He also wants to escape because he found out that released to else where means the government kills the person and he was told that a baby his family was looking after was going to get released so he wanted to escape with the baby.
Dystopian Protagonist Paragraph 2
Jonas the protagonist in
The Giver
believes that something is terribly wrong with the system but may not know what because he is shown past memories about love, freedom and violence and the government restricted all of them. Jonas feels like the government is hiding too much and the entire society will eventually find out. Jonas hates that he has to keep it all a secret and thinks its too big of a responsibility for him to keep to himself.
This symbol represents what the citizens see and how things actually are.The reason for this is because the government blocked out colour and love in the citizens lives.
This quote/theme applies to the giver because Jonas has to hold the memories and he feels really lonely because he can't share the memories he's experienced with anyone.
This is a symbol in the giver because it represents Jonas' first memory. He goes sledding down a hill and in the community all the other citizens don't know what that is they don't even know what snow is.
This quote/theme applies to the giver because the government as eliminated violence,love,hate,freedom,etc but they haven't eliminated murder they just call it "Released to elsewhere".
