No Choice


               The Giver by Lois Lowry is an example of Marxism in literature.  In order to avoid pain and suffering, society has eliminated the people's choice.  The people are assigned specific jobs, interests, spouses, and number of children.  The only other "option" is death.  The book shows how a society can manipulate class structure and conflict, claiming utopia but delivering suffering for those who labor for the wealthy.
