City of Ember

By: Yankinho Figueroa


The issue in the book that I read is Social. It is a social issue because the people in the city are told what to do by the mayor. This is a major social issue because in today society we have this type of governments, still today.

1.“Assignment Day now, isn’t it? Yes. First we get our education. Then we serve our city.”(DuPrau)

2.“So. Let us begin. Simple procedure. Come up one at a time. Reach into this bag. Take one slip of paper. Read it out loud.”... “Who cares to be first?(DuPrau)

3.“The lights go out all the time now! And the shortages, there’s shortages of everything! If no one does anything about it, something terrible is going to happen!” (DuPrau)

4.“Welcome to Ember’s work force"(DuPrau)

5."The Book of the City of Ember, which all children studied in school"(DuPrau)


“CIA understands well is that information is as good as gold, and he who controls information can use that data for political gain, power and wealth”

“If you don't believe you've been lied to by our politicians and the media, do a search for the following... Jekyll Island and the Federal Reserve System”

“The new meal standards try to micromanage every aspect of what’s served to children, including placing severe restrictions on calories, nutritional content and portion sizes.”

“Federal government must control nutritional policy in the schools because parents can’t be trusted to teach their children how to make dietary choices that meet their unique needs.”

“The NPC decides on national economic strategy, elects or removes high officeholders, and can change China's constitution; it normally follows the directives of the Communist party's politburo.”

“China is a one-party state, with real power lying with the Chinese Communist party. The country is governed under the constitution of 1982 as amended, the fifth constitution since the accession of the Communists in 1949.”

Reflection Call to Action!

This social issue has existed in our world for many decades and it will continue to exist, because that is how the governments of these countries are built around. A new government would mean a new nation, which wouldn't happened. A way this social issue can end is by the people starting a protest or a war against the government, which would cause death, people locked up, or more. The possibilities this issue will end is never.
