A final example that proves that Holden should be in a rest home is that he doesn’t have a healthy relationship with his peers. There are many reasons Holden should be in a rest home. Holden shows that he can’t function on his own as he doesn’t apply himself to his studies. Holden gets expelled out of many schools because he doesn’t apply himself like should be doing. Holden has been
In anthem this is shown when the elders say to the main character “ how dared you, gutter sweeper (...) to hold yourself as one alone and with the thoughts of the one and not of the many” The irony that is shown by this is how the elders who are supposed to help all and have all help others but they reject the idea that he had to help the collective group. While in the Harrison Bergeron society the fear of going against the group makes them think bad stuff could happen like “if I tried to get away with it (...) then other people’d get away with it-and pretty soon we’d be right back to the dark ages again, with everybody competing against everybody else. You wouldn't like that, would you?” this society has them thinking that if they go against the greater good in any way that everything will go wrong. Yet there are people who still do it showing how it doesn't work. In both situations whether it's a big help for all or a small help for one they don’t except that help.
In this town there was no respect for that which led the townspeople to close themselves off to anything that was not taught in the bible. It led Reverend Brown to lead the townspeople inadequately. The townspeople were relying on Reverend Brown to lead them and that is not wrong of them but the only problem here was that they did not know how to think for themselves. They were so closed minded to new ideas that everything outside the doctrine was wrong. To think freely is to be able to open your mind to new depths, it does not mean you have to agree to them or believe in them it just means that you are able to see out of the lense of someone
Opposed to his peers being charismatic towards him he is shunned so in order to give himself a level of importance he forces himself onto social events. ‘“Let him come, if he wants to so much, “But we have our own circle, we’re friends,”. . . Maybe we don’t want you at all”’ (Dostoevsky 65).
Huxley feared that eventually nobody would know the truth about the world because they would become so oblivious and the truth would become irrelevant. This is evident in Brave New World with the well known saying, “history is bunk.” Nobody in the novel wants to learn about the past because the society has made it undesirable to do so. Instead, they focus on the present and improving for the future. Another example of Postman’s assertion in the book is the fact that nobody reads. Mustapha Mond explains to John that books are prohibited because these people “couldn’t understand it.” I see this in society today as well.
For this reason the Elie wouldn’t have known about the extreme horror that was lying ahead for his entire family. This choice positively impacted the author’s life by not being separated from his father. “Naturally, we refused to be separated” (20). Hypothetically, if Elie left with his sisters, his father would have no motivation to survive by not knowing if his family is
Within the wall, there are no jobs available and with resources constantly getting depleted, they will get poorer and poorer. The federal government is powerless to improve the situation. Lauren knows the only alternative for many families is to move to the company town of Olivar. In Chapter 11, Reverend Olamina, Lauren’s father, says “Freedom is dangerous…but it’s precious too. You can’t just throw it away or let it slip away.
Ayn Rand’s Anthem depicts a collectivist society where no man is allowed to be an individual. Due to this society making the people believe that there is no “I” but only a “we” the people of the community blindly believe what the higher power tells them. The people in the society of Anthem live with jobs that the head of the government give them and emotion is pushed to the side, all leading to Equality questioning and eventually breaking the law. Equality is a symbol of identity within Anthem who rebels against the system secretly. The ideals and rules of a collectivist society represented in Anthem by Ayn Rand show that collectivism is not an efficient way to create peace and order in a society.
As written in The Crucible john proctor refuses as miller has stated, “Because it is my name! Because I cannot have another in my ,life! Because I am not worth the dust on the feet of them that hang!” (Miller 1164). By saying this John Proctor has just realized and ends up trying to get the point across that he no longer wants to go through with his lie and feels guilty about the situation he is in. John is also conveying through his words that he believes the situation is his own fault/ he would rather die than deal with living a lie for the rest of his theoretical life of having confessed which is a form of self preservation.

People in the novella, Anthem aren’t truly free like the Council leads them to believe. They can’t think for themselves, make their own decisions, or express themselves. All their days are planned out for them by the Council. You need to be able to be unique and have your own thoughts to be free. In this society, it is a sin to stand out.
He lack of communication regarding the leaders of the Hupacasath leaders and the residents delayed the community intervention from taking place, which in turn lead them to poverty and low employment rates.it also seemed to segregate them from the Alberni community. Another issues would have been the lack of knowledge of how to use the economy around them. This as the second biggest weakness I found. The leaders of these communities should have briefed the residents of the possibilities around them but yet nothing was done. Some strengths that I found were the communication that took place between the two communities and within the communities themselves.
Mustapha Mond comes to understand that the world state cannot allow the public to learn the truth because they have created a system where if the people found out they could have a choice of job it would destabilize the society. In addition to making Mustapha Mond unhappy, it demonstrates a key problem in Brave New World because the general happiness of the people comes at the loss of the freedom to choose what they do with their life. Helmholtz has realized that the world state does not allow him the freedom he could have in his job if the people knew the truth. In Brave New World to hide the truth and keep the people happy they can not have the freedom to choose their job. This demonstrates a problem created as a result of the conflict between truth and happiness in Brave New World because if everyone was happy and knew the truth the world state might be able to let them choose their job without the fear of it destabilizing the
Anthem’s society is not free to have marriage and could lead to punishments. The novella explains that to keep everyone equal, they must not look to others. In conclusion, “Harrison Bergeron” by Kurt Vonnegut Jr and Anthem by Ayn Rand concludes that love and marriage are not similar in both dystopian societies. Although “Harrison Bergeron” by Kurt Vonnegut Jr and Anthem by Ayn Rand are both pieces of dystopian literature, thier portreyal of family differs greatly. George and Hazel can live with each other, their society has restrictions for people to be equal but not with marriage nor love.
