    The Giver is a dystopian world written by Lois Lowry The Giver is a dystopia because they can’t see color or hear music, the world is just a bland mix of silence and gray. The reason I know this is because when Jonas starts to see beyond, the giver tells him that he is starting to see the color red, and the giver later tells Jonas that he first heard music instead of saw colors. That means that nobody in the community can see colors or hear music. The second reason I think their community is…

    The Utopian Society in The Giver is destined to fail because of inequality and fear. To begin with, in “Harrison Bergeron” Kurt Vonnegut Jr. proved that rebels and insurgents will appear where there is pain and unfairness.

Confucius did not consider himself and his teachings as a perfect or original method, he believed to the wisdom of the past. Confucius was obsessed with tradition, and he saw it as the main shaper of inclinations and attitudes. “He loved tradition because he saw it as a potential conduit—one that could funnel into the present…
