The Giver Advertisement The main problem is that the residents of the community no longer experience any of the most basic emotions of humanity, nor do they see things in color (Jonas does see color). Everyone is the same - there is no variety and no differences. People have lost the ability to love or to feel passion or compassion about anything. On the rare occasions when emotions do get unleashed on the community, people find it very hard to cope with them.
Jonas’s solution The main problem is that people dont have rights. They cant chose how to live. It is all decided for them. Their jobs and husband wife ischosen for them. They cant have children of their own and they cant decide how many kids to have(Well, not more than two.). If they wanttwo, one is to be a girl and the other a boy. There is no choice there. They cant see colors. They cantremember the history of the world. They also cant feel pain. The Givers job is to basically live while these people just go through the motions. the solution was getting rid of The giver, forcing the people to remember and to live.
