Chapters 1 & 2
Risk Taking Researcher
Since this is the first week of reading this amazingly diverse book, I decided to ask myself some question that at this point seem very open-ended and try to reflect on them.
Why does the main character refer to himself as "we"?
As I did some further research, I found out that this book is supposed to be a about a dystopian world because something unknown occurred to the world as we know it today that caused individuality to be removed and prohibited from Earth. Therefore, our main character is not permitted to think in singular, only plural because in a way that makes him part of the group. Also, they must all consider themselves brothers and sisters and they must not think more of one, they must love everyone equally. "This is an evil thing to say, for it is a transgression, the great Transgression of Preference, to love any among men better than the others, since we must love all men and all men are our friends" (Part One). What this proves, is that in this dystopian world one doesn't have the freedom of decision and this limits them to grow in a sentimental and skillful way because they must all be the same.
