What do you think of those who live outside the borders of the divergent city? What do you think of their actions? Do you think they have done the right thing to watch and wait, or that they are as bad or worse than the people they watch like a soap?

Honestly the way they just watch and wait to see what happens reminds me somewhat of the Hunger Games. I definitely think it was wrong of them to allow this to happen, but I don't really know what I would have done differently.

I think they were in the wrong to just watch while this uprising happened and all of these people died unnecessarily. I feel like they could have come in, explained everything, and a lot of deaths could have been avoided.

I think that they have been raised to not see the people within the walls as human, simply as a live action experiment. While I definitely don't condone their actions, I think that they would be more much inhumane if they were watching it as entertainment. I think they truly believe that their work is for the good of all, even though they are extremely wrong in doing so.

I think in a way they are the ones that should have been in more than one faction. I don't think they should have just watched the people inside the walls, they could have made their own cities, etc. and had a somewhat normal life. I don't think they should have sat and done nothing about the uprising, I think they could have at least tried to help.
