Perfect World?
We live in a Dystopian society full of so much negativity, pain, hatred towards each other and so much more! Have you ever wondered how it would be like to escape or society today and live in a perfect society? A Utopian society? Well if you have do not worry you are not alone because I myself have wondered about it too. If I were to create my own Utopian society I would not include diversity, or wealth and finances. However, I would include crime and law enforcements. First off, I think what causes most problems in our world today is diversity. Everyone is always judging one another because they are different, it should not matter if you are White,

Some are struggling to make money to pay for things. But have you ever wondered what the world would be like without your own money or bills to pay? In my Utopian society everything will be paid for by the government and I. You would not even have to know that money exists. Everybody will live in a medium to big sized house, same design, food will be served to you regularly with your choice of meal and you will never go hungry because my society will be just perfect! In the
Giver everybody has a roof over their head, food to eat and will never go hungry. Their houses are all the same sizes and designs. Each and every person over the age of 12 has their own jobs but does not get paid, for everything is already paid for by the Chief Elder (Lowry, pg 78).
Many people today think that it is okay to kill people, hurt others, and break the rules!
However, that is not acceptable and it needs to stop because you should not be allowed to take…
