equality recognizes the flaws in this society and he knew in his heart that it was not right how they were treated and forced to live. Equality began to understand to be totally healthy you have to focus on yourself a little. this is a great lesson because it teaches you courage and it shows you how you cannot control God 's plan for individuals lives. The society quality was living in try to play God they control the height of people that job they would have their thought their schedule and told them that everyone was the same as yourself after reading it and would you Embrace other 's individuality more and be more courageous or just fall into what Society is telling
Anthem is a dystopian story, it is a story about how society itself is the antagonist; it is a society that is working against the people to benefit the society and not them as individuals. “ We are one in all and all in one. There are no men but only the great WE, One, indivisible and forever.” The society sees that the people 's purpose is to solely serve the needs of the society. Equality 7-2521 wants to be an individual but he will not betray the values that are important to him even though he will be punished. He accepts being excluded from the society , being banished, and everything else from his ‘ brothers.’ He would rather do all of this than give up who he could become and who he is.
The story reads, “It is a sin to think words no others think and to put them down upon a paper no others are to see” (Rand 17). Men in Equality’s society are not allowed to have their own thoughts, instead their thoughts must be the same as everyone else that is in their community. The rules set in place stop people from thinking for themselves and fighting back against the government. If people began to think and realize that all the strict commands they were forced to follow where unnecessary they would revolt. The rules limit Equality from discovering new inventions and growing to be himself.
This is because that in this world, no man is alone and does everything alongside his brothers. Throughout the book Equality 7-2521 challenges the idea that everyone is and must be the same. Instead he acts on his own. In the book everyone is supposed to be equal alongside their brothers. That means that no one is more important, intelligent, and so on than their brothers and by being so it is an evil in the world.
He tried to do the best he could with what God gave him. He should get a nice raise for trying so hard.” This influences the story because it seems that because they are so equal, even if they just only try they still get credit for it. A main similarity is that people who are astute wear (0:0) handicaps and those who were idiotic didnt have to wear handicaps. This impacts the story because it shows you how different 2081 is compared to 2017 people are now expected to be equal and no one can be who they want to be, if they express themselves without following the rules they are required to have handicaps on or if they’re naturally smart, and pretty they threaten the rule of being “equal.” A other similarity is that he choose a ballerina to dance with him in the movie and the story ( 13:52) this is important to the story because they are trying to show everyone that a life without handicaps can express their true self and without performance with the ballerina they wouldnt be able to give that example to the
This quote, is in direct correlation with this part of the story, as Equality 7-2521 goes “under the earth” in order to run tests on his creation. The part “are not for all men to see, but for those who (seek) them,” is describing how this knowledge is right below the entire Society’s feet, however they; Equality 7-2521’s “brothers,” do not wish to meddle with things that could potentially change their way of life. For example In the Visual Quote, the fact that everyone else in the Equality 7-2521’s society does not wish to change or be enlightened has been glorified and obviously shown in several different
In the society Equality lives in, it is crucial to be just like your brothers. If you are not exactly like them in emotions, physical aspects, and character aspects you are a curse to society. Equality eventually rejected this way of thinking and separated himself from this group. The speaker in “The Anthem” must now do the
The rules in Anthem include the word I being destroyed and erased from history being replace by us and we. Anyone who says I will be killed. The government was made with good intentions but eventually it was corrupted. The government originally wanted everyone to be completely equal means that they took the will of the people. Other rules include men not being allowed to be alone, two people not being allowed to be alone, Men and women not being able to speak with each other on a personal level, You can’t have any friends The word ego is the most important word, Writing stuff is not allowed unless the consul allows it and everything that is not listed is forbidden.
Once Equality found the word “I” he vowed never to speak “we” again, unless it was his own choice, thus praising individuality. “For the word ‘We’ must never be spoken, save by one’s choice and as a second thought.” (Rand 96). Equality wept when he found “I” because he pitied those who did not know the word. “I wept in deliverance and in pity for all mankind.” (Rand 98). Equality wept because the people in the old society did not know that there was a word for themselves, not we, but I. Nextly, Equality abhorred the old society’s rules.
Equality was a creator his mind had driven him to science he had his own mind, his own strength, and his own courage he was independent, he was brighter than the rest. Standing alone in a modern world ruled by the suppressed government he faced the world alone. In a world where being intellectual was a severe sin he possessed gifts unlike no other that were despised by the government: intellectual and psychological strength. In a world where free will was not allowed and any form of diversity was punished by the authorities. Here we find Equality on a path of self-discovery and independence.
