Economy/government in The Giver by Lois Lowry - Socialist?
I am reading The Giver by Lois Lowry. Would you consider the system in the community to be socialist? I think that in many ways it is but at the same time, the weak are killed ("released") such as the weaker of those two twins. So there is a bit of fascism here.

I see the system described in the book as authoritarian (but also can be seen as what conservatives think of as an extreme endpoint of liberalism, as some of them have seen pro-life and pro-religious parallels to the last 5 chapters of the book)
