Instead of dealing with that pain, they cultivated a seemingly perfect facade and a seemingly perfect society. The problem with this is, nobody is flawless, even the protagonist of the novel. To make this society perfect, the weight of every struggle in the history of mankind was put on Jonas’s shoulders. But, the only thing that resulted from this was anarchy. From this I learned that although perfection is desirable, it is not attainable.
She exclaims that, “Jack of All Trades, Master of None,” (1-2) literally translates to a person having talent in all fields, is preferably way better than having no talent at all. People prefer to be perfect and genuine at mostly everything they do. But in reality, people can do anything to the best of their abilities, but all for none because nothing they do will ever be perfect. Furthermore, as people progress further into their lives, they will be confronted be challenges like work. Most will often try to perfect it or be promoted.
The brush is a temporary safe haven for George and Lennie, where they are able to avoid dangers of humanity. The author emphasizes the safety of the brush when he writes “‘Well, look. Lennie--if you jus’; happen to get in trouble like you always done before, I want you to come right here an’ hide in the brush’”(13), which indicates the brush is a shelter of protection for George and Lennie. George and Lennie share a common dream, whic is to own an independent farm together and more specifically, to create a place of acceptance. The farm will be a permanent version of the brush, where they are able to flourish indibidually in an accepting environment.
There are activities for everyone out there, no matter who you are to make you happy; you just have to get out and find them. Lastly, I believe the last key to happiness if to look at everything in the most possible way. If you look at everything negative then you will never be truly happy and you won’t have very many people who wants to be around a Debby Downer. Being happy is a choice, as Abraham Lincoln said,” Most folks are happy as they make up their mind to be” you have every right to be happy, its just up to you to make it
It is impossible for an equal society. In “Harrison Bergeron” the government makes an attempt for everyone to be equal and the same in every way. This plan to make everyone equal ends up making everyone miserable. You can’t be better than anyone in any way and you are the same as everyone else. The idea of a equal society is very uncivil.
Vonnegut’s portrayal of a utopian society in the short story, “Harrison Bergeron” is exceeds anyone’s expectations of how a utopian society would be. In this universe, everyone is beyond equal. Such as everyone must be as average as their peers, no matter what. With the exception of race, of course. Everyone must look average,sound average, have average intelligence and this is achieved through the use of handicaps.
Discipline is as vital for healthy child development as nutritious food, physical and cognitive exercises, love, and other basic needs. Without discipline, children lack the tools necessary to navigate relationships and challenges in life, such as self-discipline, respect for others, and the ability to cooperate with peers. Discipline is not about creating conflict with your child or lashing out in anger. Disciplining your child, but when done correctly, is not about trying to control your child, but about showing them how to control their own behavior. It is not about punishing a child for doing something wrong but, about setting clear parameters and consequences for breaking rules so that they learns how to discipline themselves.
Well not in Harrison Bergeron. In Harrison Bergeron, they bring out their flaws and hide their perfections, so that everyone is all equal and nobody is better or treated any better than anyone else. Whenever Harrison decides to cherish his perfections, things don't go well or expected for him. It's illegal so, nobody may be unique. And the decisions he made were very unique and bold, and that's not how it flows in his time or place.
For most of us Utopia is just a fairytale still being told to small kids not to kill the last sources of true innocence. In a world where humans are categorized by their skin colors, languages, religions and money; we still hope that one day, humanity will change. So, why does it have to be like that? Is there really a chance for us to purify from our lurking savagery and ignorance? I think it is so unnecessary and ill-considered to ask that question.
In today’s society, more and more kids are getting participation trophies for doing nothing except showing up. Yes it is important to teach kids to do their best, but being awarded just for being as good as you already are doesn't give kids the motivation to make themselves even better. Why would they want to improve if they already have that shiny trophy? I do not believe that participation trophies should be handed out like they are. Participation trophies are a form of rewards that give young children a reward for simply showing up to their games or meets and participating.
