Both, race-conflict approach and multiculturalism, coincide with each other in the way that they explain the importance of equality among all races in the United States. They both focus on social conflict and diversity within this melting pot of a country. Race and culture encourage two diverse ideas, however they share similar goals of broadening people’s knowledge on the importance of other cultures contributions in the Americas and around the world. Equally, they share views and strong opinions on how the English way of life is not the only way people need to abide by anymore. In which, everyone is entitled to live the way there culture does without any outside dictatorship.
Specifically, social conditioning is a process that limits and adds certain things to a society to establish an official way the society will live. It has its pros and cons, and it is clear that both of these authors have their opinions on it. Bradbury obviously believes that it is carrying us to a dystopian world and Golding portrays that it is necessary for a civilized society. In The
Barber bases his egalitarian claims on evidence for the conventional American view. He uses history as proof that higher education is a necessity for all citizens recalling “Jefferson and Adams both understood that the Bill of Rights offered little protection in a nation without informed citizens. Once educated, however, a people was safe from even the subtlest tyrannies”(Barber 5). Barber understands the genuine purpose for educating a public and that it endows people “the competence to participate in democratic communities, the ability to think critically and act with deliberation in a pluralistic world, and the empathy to identify sufficiently with others and to live with them despite conflicts of interest and difference in character.221;(Barber 6). Barber’s claim is sound because it agrees with the noble ideals set by our founding fathers and can be applied universally as every country naturally wishes to have a peaceful and educated society.
In Ayn Rand’s novella Anthem, we are introduced to this society that has fallen back into the times of the Great Rebirth. In this society we meet Equality 7-2521 who is cursed with being different from his brothers and sisters. The World Council is in control of making of the rules of all of the societies. These rules were created to restrain individuality, to ensure an equal society. While Equality is at the Home of the Students, they repeated a pledge.
Usually the thing possess what you once had, wish you had, or wanted to still have. In Graham Greene's short story, The Destructors, he projects how even the most innocent of people- children can become savage and and target to destruct because of oppression. The story centers around a young 12 year old boy named Trevor who was living in a post war depression. He wanted to fit in with the poor kids but "There was his name (and they substituted the initial because otherwise they had no excuse not to laugh at it), the fact that his father, a former architect and present clerk, had "come down in the world"." (pg.
Another example of figurative language the author uses is satire. The government enforces the laws so everyone is equality. They make sure there is no uprising similar to the incident that harrison attempted. They use amendments, as it states in the story , “All this equality is due to the 212th, 212th, and 213th Amendments to the Constitution, and to the unceasing vigilance of agents of the United States Handicapper General(1). The reader can tell this statement is sarcastic because America does not have nearly that many amendments, and the phase “unceasing vigilance” has an underlying sarcastic tone.

Anthem by Ayn Rand is the story of how a man broke free from a society where singularity and being different was evil. Anthem deals with the topic of communism and how everyone is supposed to be equal and the same. This is shown in the book where in Equality 7-2521’s society, the use of the word “I” is non existent. Instead they use the word “We”. This is because that in this world, no man is alone and does everything alongside his brothers.
Imagine living in a world where people are unable to think for themselves and can only carry out actions that will better everyone else. That world is a collectivist society in which Ayn Rand forces her characters to live in her book. Anthem can be defined as a dystopian book because of the setting characterization, and the amount of government control. Anthem is set in the future. Equality writes in his journal saying, “They whisper many strange things of the towers which rose to the sky in those unmentionable time,” (Rand 19).
