Equality 7-2521: The Individual “No one should part with their individuality and become that of another” (BrainyQuote 5). William Ellery Channing, a poet and preacher, stresses the significance of staying true to oneself and not being succumbed to be another being. Similar to Channing’s statement, Equality 7-2521 found the importance of embracing the freedom to think, isolation, and individualism in the midst of being in a collective society. In the end of Ayn Rand’s novella Anthem, Equality 7-2521’s assessment of solitarily expressing his thoughts is that it is not a sin anymore; he is correct because he is free to believe whatever he wants to, learns that he is an individual with purpose, and realizes that no one can control him.

The parable of the whistle is used throughout the story to symbolize luxuries and wants.
There is no exact definition to being happy. Many writers such as Mark Twain, Ernest Hemingway, and Ralph Waldo Emerson have sought out ways on how to lead a happier lifestyle. Russell implements these beliefs and defines happiness in a whole different way.The Happy Life, written by Bertrand Russell, is a rhetorical essay about his meaning of “happiness.” He persuades his audience through the use of pathos and ethos. I agree with his interpretation of how to live the happy life because one cannot help another at the expense of their own happiness. As Dalai Lama once said, “Happiness is not something really made.
a. Emerson’s idea about self-reliance is doing what makes you happy and not worrying about what people will think of you; alsfheo doing things individually. In the passage, he says that every person has the potential for accomplishing amazing things without the negative effect of society; this is accomplished through the power of self-belief. Emerson also talked about how people should not follow the rules (not in a rebellious display) in order to express individualism. Regarding these beliefs, I side with Emerson because I believe that people should be themselves and not allow society to tell them how to act. On the

Friedrich Ludwig Jahn said, “The secret of living in peace with all people lies in the art of understanding each one by his own individuality.” To find peace and live in harmony, people need to know and embrace each person’s individuality. Although the people in Anthem are supposed to be happy and peaceful, they are not permitted to have a sense of individualism. Ayn Rand’s novella Anthem illustrates the importance of each person in society having an individual identity to true peace and happiness. Rand expresses this philosophy through the main character Equality who discovers freedom and self-worth for himself. Freedom allows for characters to acknowledge their own person and to ultimately achieve happiness and peace.
Johnson interprets, the repeative theme of the division between the rich and the poor was not intended to stir up strife or show favoritism, but to moderate and restrain them. This was to ensure that this ideal be understood amongst the Puritans. Although it was not the first explanation for this separation, the reason Winthrop presented to his audience was that it would draw them together, thus making them “knit together” in “brotherly efftection” (Johnson 244-245). Johnson also points out, “Winthrop accepted the idea of blissful state of primitive communism” (235-236). He strongly advises his listeners to strive towards the importance togetherness and not on the needs of the individual.

Destroys the fictional illusion that reinforces the sense of reality because the text because of its discontinuity mimetic closer to the human experience. It is this which gives the illusion of reality, the insistence on authenticity, is also what enhances awareness of the artificiality of the text. This advocacy of realism Lilian R.

He is special because he wants change and does not just live with what he has. Harrison and Equality both crave a different and fair lifestyle no matter what the cost it. Although "Harrison Bergeron" by Kurt Vonnegut and Anthem by Ayn Rand are both dystopian pieces whose protagonist are incredibly similar. Both Harrison and Equality were equally defiant and refused live by the rules that everyone is supposed to live by. They live with this mentality because they have a special thinking process and want more than the dull lives they live.

What you do to others will always come back to you. If a person does morally upright behavior, he will positively affect the people around him, making them happy and they will therefore also treat that person in a morally upright manner. Happiness causes people to do good acts in the same way that doing good acts causes happiness. Wicked acts harm others and cause them to suffer because they become unacceptable from the point of view of their society. For example, working for the community after a calamity makes a person happy because he was able to make others happy by helping them in their sufferings.
Determinism and natural law, two worldviews that stand on opposite sides of the earth. People that value determinism see life as a one way track where any effort made still leave the final destination the same. An individual’s choices will lead to somewhere, but there is nothing they can do to influence whether or not they make that certain choice. In opposition, those who believe in natural law see that the actions of the individual have an influence on the outcome on the outcome of their life. These actions follow their morals, which come from introspection and experience.
