The First chapter of the book, Anthem states,“It is a sin to write this. It is a sin to think words no others think and to put them down upon a paper no others are to see.

H Wallace, however begs to differ. Wallace believes that Huckleberry Finn is the most “racist trash ever written”. It is because of his unconsciousness and attitude towards racism that disables him from seeing the true meaning of Huckleberry Finn. His education will eventually hit a wall as he will miss out the many lessons in life because he refuses to come in term with racism. Both Edmundson and Emerson disagree with John H. Wallace as Edmundson claims “Emerson understands education as a process of enlargement, in which we move from the center of our being, off into progressively more expansive ways of life” .
This may lead to arguments claiming that due to its danger, one should not protest against their own government. However, this is answered in Henry David Thoreau’s Civil Disobedience when he brings up the point that if no one does it, who will? The danger that protesting holds cannot withstand the anger that the oppressed feel when they are rebelling. As Martin Luther King Jr. mentions in his Birmingham letter, “freedom is never voluntarily given by the oppressor; it must be demanded by the oppressed”. Henry David brings up the point that there are people who are opposed to certain issues in the world and sit with their hands in their pockets too afraid to do anything, and claiming out in the open that they have no idea what to do.

Anthem is a novella by Ayn Rand, telling a story of a futuristic and collective society, where there are no individuals. In this society, there is little to no technology of any sorts. Even less than there was when this novella was written in the late 1930’s. Candles are their main source of light, and there is no electricity. All because there is no freedom for people to seek out new information and discover new things.
No freedom. No creativity. No individuality. Create a picture, being in a society that strictly imposes a set of rules in which one must obey and carry out to create this “perfect” canvas. This is what is described in Ayn Rand's novella.
