    Lowry's book is a piece of nationalist propaganda using oversimplification emotional appeals and dualistic morality to shut down her readers' minds More troubling is that it is aimed at children who don't yet have the critical faculties to defend themselves from such underhanded methodsUnsurprisingly Lowry adopts the structure of the monomyth equating a spiritual journey with a moral one Her Christ figure uses literal magic powers to rebel against his society This rebellion and the morality behind it are presented as 'natural' to contrast with the 'abnormal morality' around himLowry doesn't seem to understand that we get our morality from our culture it isn't something in born that we 'lose' This is the first hint of Lowry's misunderstanding of the human mind She assumes her own morality is correct and then builds her story to fit itShe also makes the character act and think like a modern person would despite never adequately explaining how he came up with such unusual notions It's the same trick many historical fiction authors use leaving us scratching our heads as to why a Fourteenth Century French peasant speaks like a second wave feminist I'd suggest that Lowry falls to this fault for the same reason they do she has no talent for imagining how others might think differentlyLowry's book ends with the standard nonspecific transgressive spiritual event that marks any overblown monomyth Since the book is not a progressive presentation of ideas it does not suggest any conclusion Instead the climax is a symbolic faux death event symbolic of what none can say Confusingly Lowry later redacts the ending in the sequels undermining the pseudo spiritual journey she createdThough some call this book 'Dystopian' it's closer to the truth to say Lowry borrows elements from the Dystopian authors attempting to combine the spiritual uplift of the monomyth with the political and social deconstruction of the Dystopia What she doesn't recognize is that the faith of the one conflicts with the cynicism of the other She draws on ideas and images from many other authors Bradbury Huxley Orwell Burgess but doesn't improve upon themThese authors created novels that reflected the world around them They based them on the political events of the times presented with realism and careful psychology Though they presented the struggle between the individual and the society they portrayed morality as grey and suffering as the result of individual human faults not political systems Lowry doesn't realize that the best way to critique Fascism or Communism is not to present it as 'evil' but to simply present it as it wasBut Lowry's world is not based in reality it is symbolic and hyperbolic Instead of writing about how poverty makes the world seem small and dull she has the characters magically unable to experience life Instead of an impersonal government she presents a sort of evil hippy commune The only political system it resembles is a school which is a neat little trick to get the kids interested The idea that 'schoolunfeeling totalitarian hell' is not an uncommon one but it's one I'm surprised teachers would support The book also suggests a creche but lacking similarity to any real world system it doesn't work as a political criticismLowry creates this artificial world to suit her purposes but it is not a symbolic exercise like 'Animal Farm' We understand that the pigs of animal farm are symbolic because there are no talking pigs Lowry's world is insidious since its oversimplification is hidden She builds an artificial world to support the dualist morality that she's pushing She presents the same knee jerk fears about euthanasia and abortion that people use against Women's Rights or Health CareWorse than these Straw Man arguments is the fact that she never deals with the economic causes of totalitarianism Tyrants don't just rise up and take control by their own force of will they come into power because of the socioeconomic situations that surround them Lean times produce strong fascist leaders while profitable times produce permissive liberal societiesStrong centralized leadership simply doesn't self propagate in cultures where everyone is clothed fed and housed The Holocaust was socially about some ideal of 'change' and 'purity' but it was economically about the transmission of wealth from Jews Poles and Catholics to Germans and specifically to those Germans who had elected the new ruling partyThe atrocities of war are for the most part committed by normal people on other normal people By presenting the power structure as 'amoral' and 'inhuman' Lowry ignores the fact that people will willingly cause others to suffer Painting the enemy as 'evil' and 'alien' is just an unsophisticated propagandist methodShe contrasts her 'evil' with the idealized 'goodness' of emotion beauty and freedom This is nothing than the American dream of 'specialness' that Mr Rogers was pushing for so many years We are all special we are all good we all deserve love and happiness Sure it sounds good but what does it mean?Where does this 'specialness' come from? If it is just the 'sanctity of human life' then it's not really special because it's all encompassing If all of us are special then none of us are There's nothing wrong with valuing life but when Lowry presents one mode of life as valuable and another as reprehensible she ceases to actually value humanity as a whole Instead she values a small idealized chunk of humanity 'People are good except the ones I don't like' is not a moral basis nor is it a good message to send to kidsIf the specialness is only based on fitting in with a certain moral and social guideline then Lowry isn't praising individuality she's praising herd behavior The protagonist is only 'special' because he has magic powers His specialness is not a part of his character it is an emotional appealThe idea of being a special individual is another piece of propaganda and its one kids are especially prone to because kids aren't special they are carefully controlled and powerless Giving a character special powers and abilities and then using that character to feed a party line to children is not merely disingenuous it's disturbingThere is also a darker side to universal specialness giving a child a sense of importance without anything to back it up creates egotism and instability Adults noticed that children with skills and friends had high self esteems but instead of teaching their children social skills and knowledge they misunderstood the causal relationship and tried to give them self worth firstUnfortunately the moment unsupported self worth is challenged the child finds they have nothing to fall back on Their entitlement didn't come from their skills or experiences and so they have nothing to bolster that sense of worth Instead any doubt sends them down a spiral of emotional instabilityA single book like this wouldn't be the cause of such a state in a child but it does act as part of the social structure built to give a sense of worth without a solid base for that worth People like to believe they are special kids especially so but being a remarkable person is not a result of belief but of actions If the book had informed them then it would leave them better off but giving them a conclusion based on emotional appeals does nothing to build confidence or characterMany people have told me this book is good because it appeals to children but children often fall for propaganda Children develop deep relationships with pop stars breakfast cereals and Japanese monsters This does not make them good role models for childrenFeeding 'specialness' to kids along with a political message is no better than the fascist youth programs Lowry intends to criticize The obsession with individuality is just another form of elitism It's ironic that people in America most often describe themselves as individuals when pointing out the things they do to align themselves with groupsBut banding together in a community is not a bad thing For Lowry and other 'Red Scare' children any mention of 'communal' can turn into a witch hunt but we all give up some personal rights and some individuality in order to live in relatively safe structured societies There are benefits to governmental social controls and there are drawbacks and it's up to us to walk the line between the two Anarchy and Totalitarianism never actually exist for long we are social animalsIt's not difficult to understand why Lowry is so popular especially amongst educators The message she gives aligns perfectly with what they were taught as kids from Red Scare reactionism to the hippy dippy 'unique snowflake' mantra These ideas aren't entirely misguided either It's good to recognize the benefits of difference and the dangers of allowing other to control our livesIf a reader believes that fascism and socialism are inherently wrong and that their own individuality is their greatest asset they will likely sympathize with Lowry's work However this doesn't make the book honest nor beneficial One of the hardest things we can do as readers is disagree with the methods of authors we agree with ideologicallyIt makes us feel good to find authors who agree with us but this is when we should be at our most skeptical Searching the world for self justification is not a worthwhile goal it simply turns you into another short sighted argumentative know it all 'Yes men' never progressLowry is toeing the party line She does not base her book around difficult questions like the Dystopian authors but around easy answers She doesn't force the reader to decide for themselves what is best she makes it clear what she wants us to think Her book is didactic which means that it instructs the reader what to believeEven if her conclusions about Individuality vs Community are correct she doesn't present arguments she only presents conclusions Like rote memorization or indoctrination she teaches nothing about the politics social order economics or psychology of totalitarianism or individuality The reader is not left with an understanding just an opinionThe baseless 'individuality' of the book lets the reader imagine that they are rebels that they are bucking the system even as they fall into lock step By letting the reader think they are already free thinking Lowry tricks them into forgetting their skepticismShe is happy to paint a simple world of black and white and this is likely the world she sees I doubt she is purposefully creating an insidious text she just can't see past her own opinions She writes this book with a point to make and makes it using emotional appeals and symbolism She doesn't back it up with arguments because she doesn't seem to have developed her opinions from cogent argumentsIn the end she doesn't show us that the structure of this society is wrong she says nothing poignant about individuality vs community instead she relies on threats to the life of an innocent infant Yet nowhere does she provide an argument for why communal living or the sacrifice of freedoms for safety must necessarily lead to infanticideIn politics making extreme claims about the opposing side is called mud slinging it is an underhanded and dishonest tactic It works Arguing intelligently is difficult accusing is easy so that's what Lowry doesShe is another child of WWII and the Cold War who hasn't learned her lesson She quickly condemns the flaws of others while failing to search out her own Even after the Holocaust there are many racist nationalist violent Jews conflict rarely breeds a new understandingAmerica condemned the faceless communal life of the Second World and yet America created The Projects We critiqued strong governmental controls but we still have the bank bailout socialized medicine socialized schooling and socialized charity America condemned the Gulags and Work Camps and yet we imprison one out of every hundred citizens far than Stalin ever did Some are killed all are dehumanizedAs a little sci fi adventure the book isn't terrible It's really the pretension that goes along with it Lowry cobbles together religious symbolism and Dystopic tropes and then tries to present it as something as complex and thoughtful as the authors she copied Copying isn't a crime but copying poorly isLike Dan Brown or Michael Crichton she creates a political pamphlet of her own ideals slaps a pretense of authority on it and then waits for the money and awards to roll in and they did Many people I've discussed this book with have pointed to those awards as the surest sign of this book's eminent worthAward committees are bureaucratic organizations Their decisions are based on political machinations This book is a little piece of Nationalism and so it was lauded by the political machine that Lowry supports The left hand helps the right If awards are the surest sign of worth then Titanic is a better movie than Citizen KaneWhat surprises me is how many of those who brought up the award as their argument were teachers If a politically charged administrative committee is the best way to teach children then why do you take umbrage when the principal tells you that bigger class sizes and fewer benefits are fine? Listen to him doesn't he have award plaques?The other argument is usually that 'kids like it' I usually respond that kids also like candy so why not teach that? Some people also get angry at me for analyzing a book written for children Of course it's not a great book it's for kids If you want a good book go read UlyssesI prefer to give children good books rather than pieces of political propaganda even if they agreed with me Children can be as skeptical quick witted and thoughtful as adults if you give them the chance so I see no excuse for feeding them anything less Kids aren't stupid they just lack knowledge and that's a fine distinction It's easy for adults to take advantage of their naivete their emotionality and their sense of worth Just because it's easier for the teacher doesn't mean it's better for the childWhen we show children something that is over simplified presenting an idealized crudely moralizing world we aren't preparing them for the actual world If you give a child a meaningless answer to repeat he will repeat it but he won't understand why Why not give the child a book that presents many complex ideas but no rote answers and let them make up their own minds? If they don't learn how to separate the wheat from the chaff and form their own opinions early in a safe nurturing environment what chance will they have on their own as adults?In all the discussions and research regarding this book I have come across very little analysis It's especially surprising for a book with such a strong following but there aren't many explanations of why the book is supposed to be useful or importantThis lack of argument makes sense from a political standpoint since there is no reason to analyze the worth of propaganda its worth is that it agrees with society and indoctrinates readers Analyzing it would defeat the purpose political diatribes do not stand up to thoughtful attentionPerhaps someday someone will create a thoughtful textual analysis of this book that will point out its merits its structure and its complexity I've gradually come to doubt it I never expected when I wrote my original review of this book that it would garner this much attentionI still welcome comments and thoughts but if your comment looks roughly like this You should read this book again but this time like it You think you're smart but you aren't You're mean Lowry is great This book won awards and kids like it It's meant for kids anyways why would you analyze what its about? I bet you never even read the sequels Go read 'Moby Dick' because you are full of yourselfI've heard that one before If you do want to comment though you might check out this article I find it helps me with presenting my ideas
