Blog #10: Understanding


Jonas' point of view makes me see that he sees the community differently than everyone else. Jonas thinks it isn't fair that people don't have certain things anymore and that they should bring them back. He thinks that the community would be better with colors and hills and all the things that were in the past. From what I can see, this community is VERY strict on being the same. I mean, they don't have any color at all. Everything is equal and I feel like this is effecting Jonas and the Giver. They both know about the past and they see what their community is now as something horrible. I do think that it isn't right to have every single little thing be equal. They think that differences can lead to many bad things. It might but sometimes differences can be a good thing. Everyone deserves to be different in some manner. This community, doesn't all that and they should. I feel like this community is awful, equality cannot always be the best solution.

  1. What would happen if the community had the same rules but they weren't strict?

    1. It would still be equal. Either way there would be a punishment for breaking the rules. Even the simplest and not so important rule could receive a huge punishment.

  2. But being strict in the community is following the rules. If they broke a rule they won't care.

    1. Oh sure.

      "Hey I broke a rule! Now smack my legs!"

      Pain, seriously? You want pain?

  3. If the Elders don't care or the type of government they won't punish someone who broke the rules. They are not strict anymore.

    1. Okay, so then imagine this.

      If they aren't strict anymore, the world will still be awful. If the citizens are able to break any rule without the government, they could go into an upright chaos. People could carry around things that as weapons or as people they can rob and steal. Soon the "perfect" world would be down in ruins and everything will be destroyed. Here comes World War 3!

    1. Remember, this is in JONAS' COMMUNITY. A FICTIONAL world. We are talking about his world not ours. Anyways what if the citizens make some government that is no good at all. It takes a long time and next thing you know another titanic will sink and.... Oh look... World war four and a half!

  5. But we are comparing it to here. Even Jonas' community is not perfect in some aspects. In class we compare it to the real world.

    1. Our world still has a government. What do you see? Drugs, guns, global warming, poaching, bad stuff you don't wanna know about. Now look to Jonas' world. Peace and perfect. That is BORING! You need to get out there in life. There will always be someone holding you down from doing what you want to do. What is their name? GOVERNMENT! Who are they called? GOVERNMENT! GOVERNMENTS EVERYWERE! Someday... somewhere... we will have a government that is actually worth it.

  6. They are working to get the bad stuff to go away. I told you Jonas' can break rules and leave. It's not strict anymore.

  7. Break all them rules! Yea sure, let's go watch the show! What is it called? Our world falling apart! It's such and amazing show and movie. And guess what? The whole world is a part of it! If the government is trying to get rid of the bad stuff, they are failing horribly. They have said that for a long time and it takes them forever. By the time they'll get everything bad out, I'll be dead!

  8. It's our world? It's Jonas' world. They can go to the next community. They can survive out there they can go back to the community.

    1. Sure, sure, next thing you know all the communities will be in riots. The only one who will probably survive in Elsewhere is Jonas. And Jonas probably won't help the other out because of what they have done in teir community. Next thing you know BOTH worlds will be dead. Then we're will they go, Mars?

  9. I said only Jonas' community will not be strict.

    1. Yes I know. Since Jonas' community is already used to breaking their rules, they'll probably bring the rule breaking to their communities. Then the others will catch on and then the others communities will catch on and then everything is in explosions. Oh and look... World War Six!

  10. No, the other way around. If Jonas' community comes they have to follow the rules strictly. It would be chaos with strict rules with Jonas' community.

    1. It's called rebellion. They are probably going to bring out their inner Hunger Games. Next thing you know citizens will take over their world and make everything great again. Jonas might release the memories except the painful ones and everything will be okay.
