Sameness is a main factor in the giver, everybody is the same. That is besides Jonas, the Giver, Gabriel, and the five. the four of them are separated from the rest of the community by their light eyes.
This shows how the community is unable to express their feelings, or at that have feelings. only Jonas and the giver know what feelings are like.
The government controls the people and has them brainwashed.
Speaker- *please remember that all bicycles must be in order before leaving them.*
Everyone in the community is the same. There is no different cultures or race. or so you think. the elders have more power than the people.
The leaders of the community hide the real meaning of releasing. Everyone believes there is a place called, elsewhere. But during a release you are injected with some kind of poison that kills you instantly.
Jonas and the Giver come up with a plan for Jonas to escape from the community so the people get back the memories. Jonas succeeds in the plan.
