Huxley shows that the development and scientific complications in the early chapter would fail to make an utopian society as he drags and hints it throughout the whole novel of it becoming a dystopian society instead. Also, the ending of the novel was another perfect portrayal of where the utopian society truly show themselves off as they get an adrenaline rush off violence and adultery. Lastly, Huxley ultimately conveys to his readers that the free independent thinkers have freedom compared to the enslaved utopian society who do not have freedom. This is why an utopian world would fail to happen as people sooner or later would come to question the society of
Alexia Redondo p3“Control: To direct the behavior of; to have power over; to direct the actions or function of;” (merriam-webster). The overview of the society in the novel Anthem is, the people of the society believe in equality, the opposite of individuality, and a Dystopian society which is the “perfect” society, but one citizen named equality 7-2521 does not believe in a “perfect” society. The process behind creating a collective society in Anthem requires control over education, family, and knowledge. Education is a huge roll in every person's everyday life, but in the novel Anthem the society doesn't not agree. In the novel Anthem there are a plethora amount of occupations the society controls over a individual, such as education.
This is particularly evident when Equality escaped to the uncharted forest and was shocked and stunned when he found the two story house from the times before (Rand 89-93). Obviously the government tried to start fresh and hide all the things from the old times, but Equality found clues that led him to think and believe that the people before had better lives. All in all the government can't hide everything from the citizens who are determined to be different like the character Equality. Anthem and "utopian" societies like that don’t always show their true colors. Elements of that type of society are sometimes more dystopian.
This social pressure that he feels results in him naming himself ‘Blurryface’ because he 's just another nobody until he becomes societies somebody. In addition, the judgement he receives being a nobody makes him genuinely care about what the majority thinks. This is similar to the experience that The Joads have because they are trying to make ends meet in a new place, and be more than the labels given to them by society. Lastly, hopelessness has always been prevalent in our world.
Then that’s when North Korea actually seems more humane than “Anthem”. They have their own blood born family and are given proper names from birth. They do in fact have a routine that’s similar to the book, they eat, work, learn, and go back home. Finally, the biggest thing that surprised me is that in North Korea they have more freedom when it comes to love than “Anthem” , they are allowed to date and find love and happiness and create a family, meanwhile in the “Anthem” every winter they have a mating purposes in a building for men and women so the children may be born in the spring but never allowed to see their parents; since then they have their own life with their
One of the types of bias I observed was the fact the Mother and father made the daughter have her first date at the house instead of going out, and her brother getting to go out with his friends having no responsibility with watching the baby. I believe Teddy had to stay at home for the date and watch the little sister because her parents view her as the reasonable one. I also think it is because she is a girl and most girls don’t have the same rules of their brothers.
It is also against the law to be alone, write, or even have thoughts that everyone doesn’t agree on (Rand 17). Due to their government wanting everyone to be the same, nobody is allowed to speak or think on their own. They are all working together and thinking as one. They also pair couples up one time a year at the Palace of Mating and they will pair them up so they will have a child in the middle and that will make fit into their society. In Divergent, they are free to choose their future and pick their faction they want to join (Divergent).
“And we sighed, as if a burden had been taken from us, for we had been thinking without reason of the Palace of Mating”,(Rand,44). This quote indicates that your partner is chosen for you and when you first meet, you have to conceive children right after, once they are born you will never see them. People of Anthem’s Society have no love or family, they never experience it either. The stories “Harrison Bergeron” and Anthem, dystopian societies, express differently in ways of family and love.
In Oceania, one does not have the ability to have a true human connection like what people in the real world do. People in Oceania must get married solely to produce babies for The party. In real life, people fall in love, get married, and produce babies from love. Citizens in Oceania have no love and have no connection to the mothers and fathers of the children. The characters in 1984 have a, “Duty to the party” that is “Making a baby”(Orwell 85).
"Harrison Bergeron", a short story written by Kurt Vonnegut Jr., tells the story about a society that has finally reached true equality; Everyone is on the same intellectual level. In order to ensure that people do not exceed a certain mental capacity, advanced members of society are given devices designed with the sole purpose of distracting them. The government makes sure that they cannot gain a mental advantage. In the beginning of the story, we learn that Hazel Bergeron 's fourteen year-old son, Harrison, was taken away by the government. "It was tragic, all right, but George and Hazel couldn 't think about it very hard."
The novella Anthem has people being scared to fall out of line with society, therefore Equality is required to live in groups with his brothers and is not allowed to have he option to marry or to love someone. Following yourself is important in today’s envronment because you are taught to be yourself and not someone who you’re
Even though there are billions of people that walk this Earth, everybody is their own individual with their own ideas and personalities. Because of this, it is hard to imagine a world where personality and individuality do not exist. But Ayn Rand’s Anthem does just that; she paints a society in which no one is an individual. Anthem’s society is that of conformity, which means one must be complacent with the rules and laws of his/her society. Sure one could see this as a good thing, but throughout Anthem, Ayn Rand shows that conformity is not as good as it sounds, but rather the worst way to live.
The equality act holds the evidence of allowing everyone to be considered and given permission to be equal and have rights. But because of the rules against marriage between two different people not in the same race, the act is not being followed and being held back from these people and their natural born rights. Mildred Loving and her white husband Richard Loving got married in Washington since miscegenation laws didn’t allow them to marry in Virginia, they came back to their home and arrested later in the middle of the night because they were living together and because they were together and married they got jailed for a year and banished from Virginia for twenty five years. These laws made them guilty for just loving each other and living together. Miscegenation laws take away their rights to do all of those things and they make the white man unequal to the colored person.
For a long while, mom never had the chance to check my gender, Mexico wasn’t the kindest to its people when it comes to medical care; and so she assumed I would be a guy. She bought boy toys, clothes, picked out the name Ricardo, meaning powerful ruler, and had the room ready once she came over here. At my birth mom realized just what gender I was, and so named me after a family member who was just as headstrong as she was.
The people of Kaivotopolis have decided to secede from the United States of America because they feel their rights as citizens are not being met. Overwhelming governmental control and police brutality have led citizens to believe that the leaders do not, and probably will never have their best interests in mind. In today 's changing world, a society must be willing to evolve, not have guidelines set in stone for over 200 years regardless of the people 's pleas for change. The people of Kaivotopolis believe a meritocratic, innovation-driven society with a strong education system is an overall better society than the United States. Kaivotopolis 's government will have much less control over every aspect of life and be open to the people 's
