I think a lack of honesty is a more apt description. Jonas realizes everything he has known about the community has been built on lies. The Elders kill people deemed undesirable and adults have the emotional maturity of a ten year old. Jonas is disgusted that even his father lies to him about his job and what happens to babies, like Gabriel, who are "released".
