yeah. and if society as we know it was to come to an end, and us humans be thrust into a disaster,  like the one in scott's books, we would overcome. but if the world was pretty-minded.....we would most likely perish.

but would you really want to live in a society where if a disaster was to happen you would be the first to die? so no, pretty lessions aren't for me.

I see where your going, everyone says they wouldn't be pretty-minded for anything, but if I didn't know, of COURSE i'd choose that! If I hadn't read the books i'd probably choose it. No fights, everyone happy, world peace.No hunger

yeah. I mean on the surface everyone would want to choose a life without war, hunger, a good life. But at what cost? If something sounds perfect chances are it is, as with pretty lessions. But it's the people who look underneath the surface who really see life for what it is. For it's face value.

Actually, I agree with you. Everyone I talk to is like, "If I were there, I wouldn't let them turn me pretty. I would stay ugly no matter what." But they don't really understand that today isn't like the uglies world. In Uglies, no one is starving, no one is hurting, everyone is completely beautiful and living in harmony with  nature. If you were offered the chance of perfection, of never having to worry about yourself or anything else, to be amazingly beautiful and find love at first site, to have all your family and friends right there with you, would you choose it? I know I'd be tempted.

But they wouldn't tell you, and you'd be convinced that your hideous and the only way to see your friends and not live in shame is this operation.

That's true. If I had no idea they were going to mess with my mind, I might get the operation. I mean, I'm scared of operations, though. I'm scared about if I get braces. If I weren't scared of operations, I would definetly get it.

but then the fact comes back to is it a good idea. because basically the way I see it, it's taking away are rights. yes it forms a safer world and yes it may be the end to all wars. but who is to deside who gets the gift of knowledge and who doesn't. To do that would to put one persons rights above another. At what cost would you be willing to make a "perfect world" because one that is based on lies and deception isn't a perfect world to me, no to me it is even worse than we started. We would be taking way what makes the human race unique and to me that isn't right at any cost.
