In the novella Anthem by Ayn Rand, there are many quotes that have a very significant meaning in the story, as well as in the real world.

In the previous paragraph, we understand that the psychological problems trafficking causes can be just as devastating as the physical problems. When people discuss human trafficking, they often are confused as to why the victim didn’t just leave or tell someone. It is an accepted notion that majority of sexually exploited women have a degree of freedom; they are allowed to walk about the streets, allowed to contact “John’s”, and communicate with other women in the same business. However, what people often lack to understand the serious psychological grip that many traffickers have on their victims. In Theresa’s case, she had legitimate reason to believe that her family’s well-being would be in jeopardy if she refused to work or left the Chaldeans.

Are You Ruled by Fear or Pleasure? “We are born with the fear of falling and the fear of loud noises. All other fears are imposed by society” -Paulo Coelho.
