In Oceania, “the links between child and parent” were severed (Orwell 276). That much is clear when Parson’s daughter turns him in for thoughtcrime. Other societies have been known to do this as well. In North Korea, household do not contain framed photos of children or relatives, but rather pictures of their current leadership (Ahn). This nation has also strained the relationship between children and parents through its education system.
“Harrison Bergeron“ by Kurt Vonnegut and the movie 2081 is directed by Chandler Tuttle. The theme of this story is that no one should be forced to be equal, since everyone is their own special person. The story describes George and Hazel Bergeron who both have different living perspectives. In the life of 2081 everyone is expected to be equal, because of this way of living George’s intelligence makes him differ from everyone else which is weighed down by earpieces that vibrate a sound. This earpiece transmitter distracts George from any thoughts that make him learn more or feel smarter.
Make the most of yourself because that is all there is for you. This is a famous quote by Ralph Emerson and it is also very relevant in Anthem by Ayn Rand. In the society that equality lives in there was no tolerance for thinking of yourself everything is for your brothers. Equality then learns to start thinking of himself more through creating the light because he is motivated to create by self improvement. It can be concluded that equality 's main motivation in Anthem is self-improvement because when you read Anthem he is always striving for something better an example is when he says my happiness needs no higher aim to vindicate it.
Lower-class families frequently do not have the educational background to equip their children with the needed social skills to pursue success. He states, “his mother permits that casual incivility because she wants him to learn to assert himself with people in positions of authority… this kind of interaction simply doesn’t happen with lower class children (106-107)”. Wealthy and middle class parents are more often able to introduce social and analytical skills into their child’s life, which cannot be learned in a classroom. This enables the skill to interact with authority figure capable of making unintended opportunities occur. In the school environment social classes are irrelevant because they are all presented with the same education that allows them to learn at the same pace.
These children are often time themselves kidnapped from their own homes or off the streets and have nowhere to go but to a recruiting army. Megan Nobert writes in her doctoral dissertation, “Children at War: The criminal responsibility of child soldiers” Although a large number of countries have signed and ratified the UNCRC, very few have actually implemented the document. This failure could be attributed to a lack of resources available to poorer countries of the world, which prevents them from implementing a number of the measures necessary to protect children from poverty, labor, and a life lived on the streets. (Nobert 4) These children that are all alone in search for acceptance and care feel as if the only place they can get it from is recruitment groups. The excerpt below taken from Megan Nobert 's academic journal "Children At War: The Criminal Responsibility Of Child Soldiers provides a first person perspective of the life of a child soldier, one can see that the children are enticed by the realization that they will have a "family" as well as superiors and leaders that will look out for
One must keep in mind that Thoreau’s government was not Barack Obama’s government. Things were drastically different back then. Chris Mccandless also had a distrust for the government, he was often paranoid and skeptical about the economy.

When parents read this, they might have mixed feelings about it. Adults might be offended or angry at this article because it criticizes the way they taught their children. Since America is where we have the freedom to have our own decisions and not take orders from others, adults feel violated when someone tells them what or how to do something. Anything the government says that somewhat is telling american citizens to do is considered taking away their rights, which is what almost every adults’ claim. In all, adults will just scoff and not believe what the author is trying to say.
Would make people think twice about entering into our country illegally. While it may seem harsh to deny citizenship to someone born in our country the bigger picture is that their parents should have never been here in the first place if they didn’t have a visa or green card. We are losing our American culture by allowing so many exceptions, most of the anchor babies born in our country are still raised under their parents cultures and beliefs and the family members they sponsor usually wont adapt to are culture, many refuse to learn or speak English, they refuse to work an honest job, or even become a citizen. They want the benefits of living in our great country but don’t want to actually become part of our

People started to wonder about the institutionalized thoughts and religions in their countries, and began to oppose their governments. This brought about distrust in many communities and schools, as well as churches and places of worship.
