I fail to understand how the murders of TWO full communities can be justified by the explanation that they were "intellectually underdeveloped," when the whole point of the novel up to that point was to accept everyone for their differences. The consequence of failing to do so, is the creation of a cold, harsh, stringent, and unhappy society where everyone lives in fear of everyone else. Perspective is a matter of one's environment, and there is none superior to the other. But by the end of this, the author seemed to be saying: They were simply uneducated and needed guidance.
