Blog four: Unity through conformity
The community enforcement of conformity also creates unity because everyone is treated the same exact way, from punishment to good behavior to Ceremonies. Even if you wanted to be different or stand out everyone else will still look at you the same because they have to follow the rules like everyone else. The rules that are enforced don't allow you to be different or you'll get in trouble, even released because they don't want anyone to be different. I think this is probably because someone who is different (and smart) could be a threat and cause 'chaos' to their 'perfect' community. I also think that maybe Receiver of Memory may be different from everyone else because he lives alone, I think he waiting for someone to be different and be able show the truth.
