This question contains spoilers… (view spoiler)

Lois Lowry "Classic uprising"...makes me cringe. But certainly that could have happened. I envisioned some kind of catastrophe in the past...perhaps environmental. The second book of the series refers, also, to violence, in the description of toppling buildings (written, ironically, before 9/11) and mentions The Ruin, a term the movie also uses
