In the story of The Giver, almost everyone was equal. They had equal opportunities at certain ages and always had a chance to be part of something. No one was ever left out.

He opens the story up by describing the natives of the Indies. According the Bartolome “these people are the most devoid of wickedness and duplicity, the most obedient and faithful to their native masters and to the Spanish Christians whom they serve. They were a great people not caring for earthly things which was why they were not arrogant or greedy people. Instead of caring for earthly things, they were very peaceful, caring greatly for others and their wellbeing.

This suggested that the privation for the twins was not long lasting, as they were intellectually equal to most others and had no problems forming relationships.

We are told that democracy thrives all around us and that it does everything for us. It keeps us fed, protected, clothed, sheltered, and (supposedly) safer than any other form of government around. We are told a great many things about democracy; how it keeps us free, how it allows us the best possible life, and how we would be worse off any other way. However, C. B.

People must remember that there are no “set-gender” occupations in our current day of age. Men and women are now considered as equals in the workforce and both are entitled equal opportunities to the position of desire.
