His impression on the law shifts in the climax as compared to his views in the genesis of Anthem. This shift in thought creates a prodigious contrast when in reference to Equality’s morality and the morality that his brothers share. The disparity is evident. Equality 7-2521 is an individual who clings onto his own understanding and intellect. He may live in a society of collectivism and a demand for obedience, but he favors his values.
I believe this because of the existence of so much judgment among Equality 7-2521’s fellow men. They believed it should be a certain way of living and completing conventional tasks which was absurd and irrational. “The moral principle to adopt in the issue, is: Judge, and be prepared to be judged.” stated by Rand. I feel that Equality 7-2521 wanted to escape this concept. The motive powers of his fellow men were to keep everyone as single-minded as possible which led to the many rationalizations of Equality 7-2521’s distinctive ways.
Exemplifying a theme of Anthem where individuality breaks through teaches Equality a big lesson. Brothers stick together and help each other but are not supposed to be exactly like one another. In this novel it tried to make everyone the same and as one, rather than as individuals. The quote “To be a free, a man must be free of his brothers” (chapter 1 page 1) exemplifies a theme by saying that not everyone has to be the same. Equality 7-2521 was never like his brothers.
A ruler may want to be favorable among his subjects and be considered a good ruler, but at maintaining power and peace in the kingdom is top priority. When no leadership in a nation is present, men 's natural inclinations rears its ugly head, resulting in more
Competition is essential for men to gain what they desire. By using violence, man create a superiority over family and animals. Diffidence is for safety of the desire, defending their family or animals. Lastly, glory is for maintaining a reputation of their own opinion, things, and superiority over others. When men are against each other without leadership then they are in war, and if they are not fighting then they are in peace.
These force us to develop a counterbalance and give rise to cosmopolitical state of public security. The constant quarrelsomeness and antagonism among the societies and states is utilized by nature to help men discover the condition of quiet and security. Through devastation, destruction of resources and lawlessness, we begin to realize about the union of state. This joining of states establishes a balance of equality between the states and societies. In these union of states even the smallest of states expects its rights and securities not depending upon his own power, but from the united decision of the union and the will of its each member.
Javert feels that it is his duty to obey and enforce the law, he would go to any length to pursue this. “His mental attitude was compounded of two very simple principles, admirable in themselves, but which, by carrying them to extremes, he made almost evil-respect for authority and hatred of revolt against it” said Victor Hugo describing Javert’s one sided manner of thought. Jean lived in constant fear of Javert arresting him and returning him back to the galleys. The Thenardiers played a massive role in abusing power. They feel that since they are “taking care” of Cosette for Fantine willingly, they have the right to treat her any way they deem
“Ralph raised a hand for silence. ‘All right. Who wants Jack for chief?’” This quote significantly proves that Ralph is a mature representative who really thinks of choosing a chief to lead them to overcome the difficulties is important. In addition, the conflict between the instincts of civilization and savagery emerges quickly, and generated within Ralph’s moral. He feels guilty about giving in Jack’s mistake.
Pachuco is trying to show Henry that it is acceptable to embrace the feeling of vulnerability. By creating the illusion of being a strong gang leader, instead of a man who likes to dress well and hang out with his friends, he is fulfilling his own stereotype. Henry cherishes love and softness, but he thinks that he has to toughen up to seem strong for his friends. When he puts on this facade of strength, he has effectively given up his identity to those who attempt to control it, which infuriates Henry because he knows he has trapped himself but he sees no other way to freely live his
