Stepping Up to the Powerful

"He killed it! My father killed it! Jonas said to himself, stunned at what he was realizing" (Lowry 188).
In The Giver by Louis Lowry the society may seem utopian at first but as the book continues the society will start to lean more tyowards the dystopian side. In an utopian society, if no one nor nothing speaks up against the powerful then an utopian society will continue to exist.

If the too powerful are not stopped then an utopian society will continue to exist.

In Animal Farm Major is a white boar who gave a speech to get the other animals in the barn to rebel against the drunk farmer and the human race for not treating their animals correctly. To illustrate this, "Major's speech had given to the more intelligent animals on the farm a completely new outlook on life" (Orwell 7). If Major had not rebelled against the drunk farmer and his men.
In The Giver the failure ten years ago, Rosemary, applied for release not knowing the memories that she received held would return to the citizens. For instance, "The giver smiled grimly. 'When the new Receiver failed, the memories that she received were released. They didn't come back to me. They went...'" (Lowry 131). If Rosemary had not applied for release and set free the memories that were inside her head then nothing would have changed the utopian society for a short period of time.
Therefore, an utopian society will continue to exist if no one nor nothing speaks up against the powerful. An utopian society can partially exist.
