Why would people relinquish ( give up) the ability to see colour? How would this improve life in the community? Would this solve any problems in our society?
Answer: ” Our peple made that choice, the choice to go to sameness. Before my time, before the previous time, back and back and back. We relinquished color when we relinquished sunshine and did away with differences. We gained control of many things. But we had to let go of others.” (pg 95) I believe in some ways it would improve life in the community like for example, you wouldn’t feel left out because every one would feel the same. And the kids your age had the same things as you like, the bike every nine get’s it. Also there would be no pain which now Jonas knows of, you wouldn’t feel it because the pain is kept with the receiver. There would be the same feeling, same thoughts, same nights in the dwelling etc. In today’s society I don’t think sameness would solve anything maybe except for racism. But I think eveything would be the same other then that if we had rules like they do in the book people would still break the rules and do what the would like to do.
