There are no differences because it is a utopian society and its supposed to be perfect. In order for it to be perfect everyone has to be alike.
the elders want everyone to be the same.
I belive everyone wears a tunic.
Sameness is the Giver's world means that everyone is the same, no one is different. Everything looks this nondesciptive color, gray and everyone feels the same and everyone dresses the same
they basically made it to where almost everyone has the same genes...
They wanted everyone to be the same so they came up with an idea of sameness and if everyone was the same there couldn't be any colors
Yes, it is Sameness which means that everyone is all the same; Everything is all the same.
Everyone, except The Giver, and later Jonas, were colorblind.
The sameness of the community and the chooses that they made. Like how they didn't want everyone to have memories like the Giver did or how the wanted everyone color blind so that there would be difference in between everyone. Almost everyone looked alike because the birthmothers had to resemble one another.
In "The Giver" the attitude toward mirrors is a reflection of everyone being the same.
Everyone's future is decided by the society
There's no violence, no animals, no pollution, everyone is equal, no homeless people, and everyone has a job. =)
