For example, when the ... ... middle of paper ... ...finition of happiness, they enjoy all the things that their community provides them with and do not strive towards a brighter and better future. For instance, they are not able to see any flaws in their self-sustained community since without memories, they do not fathom what happiness is. Nevertheless, since Jonas realizes that there is a better and more enjoyable place Elsewhere, he constantly struggles to better his life. Consequently, memories helped Jonas experience the wide variety of emotions which are critical to his wellbeing, and made him work for an efficient future. Although, if the other innocent members of the community do not comprehend happiness, how will they acquire all the splendid advantages of inheriting memories?
For example, if one is in a situation where they experience great fear, they are much more aware of their surroundings. This can be helpful in many cases; if one is in a dangerous place, and that person is fearful, then he or she will be much more aware, making it easier to work efficiently. In story of The Giver, by Lois Lowry, the people of the community live life without any negative emotions at all. The only reason they are able to survive in this way is because they are protected from any harm, and therefore, they do not need any negative emotions. However, if they were to be extracted from their community, they would not last without any emotions.
Therefor stereotypes are not true, they are just based on one person’s thoughts. By ignoring the ster... ... middle of paper ... ...hose who choose to ignore the stereotypes and not let it bother them, go on with life like nothing could ever stop them which in returns helps keep several people safe. In conclusion, there is no way on this planet that all the stereotypes are going to go away. So the best thing that can be done is to just try our best to keep the peace, ignore them, and understand that they are being based on someone’s false understanding and that they are not true. Just like Ms. Hurston and Ms. Mairs did, they chose to be and do whatever they wanted and not let the words that others say bother them.
Appearance, age, or status would not be valid grounds for negative judgment; People are distinguished and valued based on personality and the way they present themselves. There will be no cruelty for any organism and everything is done humanely and in good morality- especially when it comes to our food. Every source would be monitored to make sure nothing is being depleted and waste would be disposed of properly. Nature would not be tampered with or destroyed by human hands and all our products would be cruelty free. Everyone would have what they need, but if they choose to have more, they can work for it.
What is “perfect” society? My own view of a perfect society is when people are sharing and loving each other, laughing, living happily, working together, with everyone’s best interest equivalent to each person’s best interest. There will be no pain, no crime, no corruption and no anger. In my perfect society, people will be raised in caring and loving community, with higher education to help them encourage freethinking. There will be no disclosure to greedy or decadent cultures.
For example, if a person is having a bad day and they do not want to be bothered and they are an outsider they will not have to worry. Since they do not talk with people much no one will talk with them, allowing that person to be alone and calm down. It also gives people a lot of personal space, if that person likes personal space. People will not be annoying to that person if he/she is an outsider since they do not talk with anyone. But as much as personal space and no annoying people sound like heaven, outsiders need their social skills.
However, that is not always the case. Poverty gives an individual a sense of life and an acknowledgement not to take moments for granted. Seeing someone experience an intense level of poorness is heart wrenching, but observing how one copes with the situation is one of the most beautiful sensations a person can endure. Even though people don’t have much, it doesn’t seem to bother them. They do not grieve for what they do not have, they celebrate and treasure the belongings they own and take pride in the now.
By that I am not saying that in this story the campers were perfect, because no they were not, but the campers did not stand out to be different to one another because they were all people with disabilities that were bound together. In this facility, these campers were able to be okay with who they really were and were not be ashamed by that. As shown (pgs. 112 & 113), these campers fought against stigma. Truthfully, these campers were able to see how stigma “marks you as different…” and were able to avoid that belief.
Someone may be unjust and they can completely agree because they are reaping the benefits from being unjust versus when they were a just person, they just haven’t experienced the consequences of being unjust. I also believe that there are people who would be unjust if no consequences followed, but I think that there are more honorable people in our world simply because they choose to be.
The use of color and costume has a part in showing the more “ideal” relationship too as we see the bright sunny outdoors and the well put together outfits that are tidy and presentable which isn’t the case whilst the Wheelers are consumed by their own problems. Mendes uses these techniques to help us recognise the change of mood and the shift of “status” in the relationship in a way, instead of both trying to be the stronger one they believe that they are seeing each other as ‘equals’ although this is not the case because there is still lack of compromise their relationship is all an illusion. Mendes highlights how we convince ourselves that everything is okay and how we ignore the underlying problems like the Wheelers does throughout the
