Judging the morals in life regarding different societies expectations quickly became the focus of Equality’s thoughts, exactly as Ayn Rand had made it the importance of her own efforts. Objectivism is different from what many people live by, but it worked for Equality by the end of Anthem. It is important to realize everybody needs different things, which leads to thinking diversely. Some need self-respect to be able to give respect, and others live their life following instead of leading. It is impossible however, to say objectivism needs to vanish when it never has before, more so, the world would be unbalanced with only equal thoughts from all; there would be no innovation if all thoughts were for the same narrow concept.
The civil liberty which is the most important is the right of assembling peaceably because it allows ideas to spread throughout society, for people to live and work in a suitable environment, this also people to petition the government in large groups of people. Without the right to assembly; ideas would not spread through society. When you talk to friends or a co-worker, you think of ideas that further benefit yourself or other people. Many inventions were made this way. If people did not have the right to assemble, the living environment in America would be corrupt and, consequently, people would not be as productive at work.
He is extremely motivated to establish a world where information isn’t limited and people are able to live as they please. Equality has finally uncovered his purpose and is not only willing to defend, but also promote it. Equality’s mindset generated a reaction from the nurture he received, resulting in him to discover his identity. A monumental point in one 's life is when they remove the toxic and unveil their true self.
What would happen if all of us suddenly stopped caring about other things and focused on following our motivations? Perhaps we wouldn’t be as self-destructive as Equality 7-2521 but rather elevate our society’s to a new pinnacle that has never been reached before. Even if we were to end up how Equality 7-2521 we would most likely be happier and more cheerful community. However, there’s always the question, “What would happen if our fate were to turn out as Equality 7-2521’s fate turned
But the knowledge and memories he gains from The Giver don’t just change Jonas, they help him grow and mature into a smarter and wiser person. Jonas came to realize that his community is in need of proper memories and emotions, and if it wasn’t for The Giver, Jonas would have never saved his community in the end of the novel. Jonas knew that to be a perfect community, people would have to learn from their memories, everyone would need see their world through color, everyone would need to make choices in life, and everyone would need emotions and feelings to fully enjoy life. In the end, being the receiver impacted Jonas and changed him, but if Jonas was never the receiver, his entire community would be in ruins, and the memories would have never opened up his eyes to see the potential future for everyone around
A designer of everyday objects named Paul Sandip believes, “Creative isn’t the way I think, It’s the way I like to live.” While he may not be as famous as other more quotable idols, there’s no other statement that summarizes my point as well as his. Creativity isn’t something to be taught through others specifically, but to be experienced and experimented with on our own terms in order to truly understand what we’re capable of creating. If we simply encourage creative thinking instead of enforcing it through school standards, the results will speak for themselves and consequently, so will the students.
These people should be rewarded instead of being rejected for sheepwalkers just because they are easier and compliant. True leaders want followers who are aspire to become leaders in their own rights rather than to be sheepwalkers. Going back to the example regarding college students, if more teachers allowed their students freedom then those students would grow up to be leaders rather than sheepwalkers. The same would go for the new employee showing up on the first day of job and as a result, there will be less sheepwalkers and more leaders ready to create
She says that introverted leaders are often more successful because they allow the ideas of their co-workers and teams to flourish without instinctively feeling the need to put their own stamp on the conversation. While extroverted leaders feel the need to ‘do all the talking’, which can thwart the creativity of the group and hold back ideas, an introverted leader is much more democratic. “Problem-solving will need more and more team work and collaboration but we do need to give introverts the freedom to be themselves, which is how they do their best work,” says Cain, an ardent advocate for balance and inclusion of different work styles. Busting Myths about Introverts Cain is not the only one carrying the torch for introverts.
Moreover, those points are just not persuasive enough for people to really believe in themselves. Even though we can act with virtue while knowing about it, we can still practice it to make the world a better place. We can act virtuously to lead by example for society so that others will try to be more virtuous also. What I mean by this is that we can try to make people better people that will make them happy. People being naturally conceded also is not persuasive because everyone has different personalities, meaning that nobody is truly the same.
No society is perfect so the individuals will always have needs to make it better or for them to benefit themselves. Individual’s needs are equal to society because individuals make up society; the individuals have to participate in the society for there to actually be one and whatever the individuals do affect the society. To have a well-functioning society you need individuals because without them then you would have nothing. Individuals need the society just as much as the society needs the
In addition, communication could serve as a tool to improve efficiency within a group to help increase safety in the perilous world. Other things would lose importance completely, such as incomes, technology, and schools, since “moral survival” would become the new curriculum. The things people once valued would be entirely different - rather than education, survival; rather than money, food; rather than friends, one’s self – and not until the diseased world would many, including myself, even question them. In a time like this, the phrase “things aren’t as they used to be” would apply quite
I mean, they ALWAYS end up making someone angry. You’d think with all their training that they would be able to do their jobs better than everyone else in the stands, but nope. You’d be wrong. With this change, the people will be in charge of regulating the game so no one will be able to complain! It is the perfect solution.
with Equality’s reputation. The author tries to grasp the reader’s attention using this technique, to help the reader to finish the book until the end. Above all, in Anthem there is many different thoughts that can determine your reputation, and with those thoughts come actions. Equality chooses to make the wrong actions determined by his thoughts and it causes him to think the society’s rules are not how Equality thinks that they should be.
In the novella Anthem, individual rights and freedom do not exist. The word “I” is prohibited to be spoken by men. Equality 7-2521 is a street sweeper of the city and he is different from the others in the society. Equality is more intelligent, taller, learns quicker, and he enjoys learning about science; especially how things move and work. Since the word “I” is the unspeakable word, Equality uses the word “We” to resemble that he is doing these actions .
Intelligence. Something that Equality 7-2521 has a great deal of. Ayn Rand, the author of Anthem, suggests that Equality 7-2521 knows that he is too intelligent to be a street sweeper, and he tries to prove his intelligence through his experiments so he can be “willed” into the Home of the Scholars. She shows this through his time in the Home of the Students when Equality is punished for his quick head, his love for learning, and the idea of learning, and when he escapes to the tunnel to work on his invention. Equality knows he is intelligent when he is punished in the Home of the Students because of his quick head.
