CHAPTER 18 How and why would the community suffer if Jonas left? Giver specific examples.
The community would suffer because if Jonas leaves, then all his memories of the outside world and would be past on to the community which could cause hysteria ( fear or panic). In the book on page (145) it tells you there wouldn`t be a new Receiver , and the community wouldn`t know what to do. In the book Rosemary got lost and all of the memories came back to the community, and the community was overwhelmed. “if they lost Jonas,with all the training you`ve had now, they`d have all of those memories against themselves” (community).
