This is something in Anthem that people in the society do not have. Examples of this is they did not have their own unique names. They are not allowed to use possessive words such as “I” or “Myself”. One pledge that Equality and his brothers state before they retired to their beds is, “We are nothing. Mankind is all.
It appears that the structure of Omelas is actually lack structure, for “there was no king. They did not use swords, or keep slaves. They were not barbarians. I do not know the rules and laws of their society, but I suspect that they were singularly few” (Le Guin). When citizens discover the child in the basement, they realize that there are more flaws in the structure of Omelas than they originally thought.
Henceforth, to inhibit the control within the community, the rules should be restricted. The long list of overstated rules does not make a community perfect.
