      Meals are taken in community dining halls and the job of feeding the population is given to a different household in turn. Paul provides two reasons: First of all, the very essence of freedom is not the absence of all restraints—but rather the ability to live according to our design. Second, he is psychologically and spiritually free because he is not enslaved to any of the artificial needs that characterize modern society. Andrews's definitive To Tell a Free Story: The First Century of Afro-American Autobiography, marked a significant new stage in the study of the written antebellum slave narrative. The result is that readers are treated as though their interest is in passing an exam rather than understanding the human condition. Does the world need books that exhibit these virtues?

This is partly because he is controlled by ridiculous needs and "factitious passions," but also because his very nature is inauthentic.

      It can be answered, however, that as a pagan society Utopians had the best ethics that could be reached through reason alone, or that More changed from his early life to his later when he was Lord Chancellor. At the same time that human reason develops, and enlightenment emerges, man is corrupted and undergoes a decline from his original condition. Book two has Hythloday tell his interlocutors about Utopia, where he has lived for five years, with the aim of convincing them about its superior state of affairs. Beyond gender and circumstances, students can see the narratives of Jacobs and Douglass as remarkable works of both literature and history. But what we do know about its origins, motivations, and operations is fascinating. Simply understanding and even believing that loving others brings freedom and fulfillment is not enough to transform me into a giver.
