“IT IS A SIN TO WRITE THIS”(17), as Equality 7-2521 said when he was in the dark damp cave of blackness where he went to be alone so he could concentrate on his ideas that he wasn’t allowed to have. Anthem, by Ayn Rand, portrays a primitive way of life that describes a depressing future only consisting of rule and the unknown. Throughout the book there is one main thought made by all the characters and they all wonder what had happened before “The Great Rebirth” and why the Council wanted to hide it from them. It is like all their minds were wiped from the face of the earth and the clock of all time had started from zero. They had forgotten science and everything invented by it.
“It is a sin to write this,” so begins Anthem. But by the end of the story, Equality 7-2521 has a different moral assessment of his action. Do you think Equality’s eventual assessment of his sin is correct? Why or why not? Explain with evidence from the story.
It is true for Bruno, because he 's pretending to be a jew to go with Shmuel. But no body ever told him anything about it, so he really doeesnt know any better. His father wears tht uniform and thinks he 's "all that", and he know 's what he 's doing, and that "it 's for the greater good" (even though it is possibly one of the worst things to happen in history, so i guess its true for him too). All throughout the book people dress up and try to be that person, pretending to be someone else. But they really are all making the wrong choices, the wrong desicisons, but they have no-idea what they are doing is going to scare our world
He refused to give up the light that he discovered, because he knew the leaders of the society would destroy it, and his view of the leaders in the society changed as he began learning about the outside world. The more he learned about that world, the more he realized how limited and unfair the society he lived in truly was. Towards the beginning of the book, Equality 7-2521 followed the rules of the society and did not question his leaders. However, towards the end of the book he started denouncing them, and began to rebel.

He has been doing this evil stunt for years. Dimmesdale thought he was truly trying to help him, but in reality he was really trying to make him feel extremely guilty for his decisions and actions. It seems wrong to mentally hurt a minister, but then again, he did do something illegal, according to Chillingworth. He is so obsessed with hurting the minister, he can’t back away from the hobby; “The unfortunate physician, while uttering these words, lifted his hands with a look of horror, as if he had beheld some frightful shape…it was one of those moments – which sometimes occurs only at the interval of years – when a man’s moral aspect is faithfully revealed to his mind’s eye. Not improbably, he had never before viewed himself as he did now” (118).
Equality was a sinner, in the book it even states in the very first line on page 17 it says “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.” Equality was a discoverer, and by doing that he was sinning. After discovering what he believed was a discovering of a “new power of nature” as said on page 52, he knew that he said to show his new power to the Council of Scholars. It was forbidden to go out of your house, but he did it anyways.
While his entire society believes that having an ego is related to evil, Prometheus challenges everything he is told and discovers and defines himself as an egoist, giving a new meaning to the word. Through events along his journey which confidently affected him, Equality achieved pride in himself and his accomplishments. Much like his so called brothers, he too was once brainwashed by the collectivist community surrounding him. His first step towards escaping was his discovery of the tunnel where he felt safe from this society; where his mind was not
Therefore, Lennie brings struggle upon himself because he does not change. Steinbeck was successful at making Lennie an unsympathetic person in many ways. He showed who Lennie is as a person. Lennie has caused many problems in his past. Lennie may be strong and a good worker, but he usually does something that will get him in trouble.
Therefore, Equality sacrifices himself for the power of individuality. He takes the struggles of the martyr and rebels against the evil of the word “we”. Equality is correct to morally judge his society by pronouncing his denouncement of them in moral terms for they took away man’s freedom, shamed their people for their differences, and censored man’s power of
Equality has the right to change his mind about the law because it isn 't a far law to everybody. It 's ironic that Ayn Rand called equality 7-2521 because he actually never really finds equality. From the being, he never understood why he was different and why he always got in trouble. He changes his mind about how society is wrong because at the end he learns in self-rights, much more technology, and the meaning of life should be. When equality was assigned with street sweeper he figured it was from his sins.
Conversely, if Red respects you, he’ll give you the shirt off his back. When I was agonizing over whether to leave full-time sportswriting for the chancy business of writing serious fiction, no one in the business encouraged me more than Red Fisher – which is ironic, because he taught me most of what I know about sportswriting. Red doesn’t make mistakes and he doesn’t miss deadlines. I remember a playoff game in Hartford 25 years ago, when a young hockey writer on the beat was more than an hour late with his story. The writer said he didn’t file on time because he was having trouble thinking of a lede.
