The first paragraph of Chapter 23 illustrates the theme of "freedon of choice." After Jonas escapes from the community, he realizes that he would rather be able to choose his destiny than remain in the safety of a community that normally does not even allow its citizens to choose their time and manner of death. Although the possibility of individual choice sometimes involves risk, it also exposes Jonas to a wide range of joyful experiences from which his community has been shut away.
