Five FactionsTris Prior: "100 years ago, after the war, our founders created a system they believed would create lasting peace. They divided a society into five factions. Everyone is tested to determine who we are and where we belong."
As Tris explains, in their current society, everyone is tested and divided up into factions based on their virtues. It's supposed to keep the peace but the fairy tale only applies to those who fit nicely into one of the available factions.

Jeanine Matthews wants everyone to think that it is their destiny to join their rightful faction. What she isn't saying is that those who don't fall in line will be exterminated.

Divergents Threaten That SystemJeanine Matthews: "The system removes the threat of anyone exercising their independent will. Divergents threaten that system. It won't be safe until they're removed."
Jeanine speaks to Tris about the dangers of the divergents. If this was an attempt to put fear into Tris, rather than make her revolt, it didn't work too well.
