Equality also broke a rule with Liberty. They were never suppose to talk but they finally did one day and he gave her a new name. Finally, Equality decided it was time to stop referring to himself as “we”, and started to say, “I”. In closing, Equality soon realizes that his life's better outside his community. He can do whatever he wants and doesn’t have to follow rules.
Equality for all “No two leaves are alike, and yet there is no antagonism between them or between the branches which they will grow”(Mahatma Gandhi) The book Anthem by Ayn Rand and Harrison Bergeron by Kurt Vonnegut are both dystopian pieces which display equality in different ways. Although Harrison Bergeron by Kurt Vonnegut and Anthem by Ayn Rand are both pieces of dystopian literature their portrayal of family differs greatly. In Harrison Burgeron, people have a families and marriage. Harrison Bergeron differs from Anthem because they have more freedom when dealing with family. “And it was in that clammy month that the H-G men took George and Hazel Bergeron’s fourteen-year old son” (pg.1) This is showing their society has family which they care deeply about because George and Hazel felt upset when their son got taken away.
For instanced in the novel on page 145 it says , “The worst part of holding the memories is not the pain. It’s the loneliness of it. Memories need to be shared.” Not to mention Jonas hasthe most “honored” assignment in the committee, he has to do it all alone with no help because no one else has to memories like he does, and no one else is old enough to become another receiver. Additionally, in the novel it also says, “So if I have a spouse, and maybe children , I will have to hide the books from them?” pg. 97 Moreover, when he gets a spouse and able to get children, he will not able to tell them about the books in the annex because of the rules, plus he won't be able to share his feelings at the dinner table.It’s easy to think that since some people might say this, “Very frightening.
In doing so, many of what was lost remained in the Uncharted Forest where all of mankind dare not to talk about it since they developed a fear the outside world. One of the many themes depicted in a dystopian literature that is presented in the novella is the expectations that the society has placed among its citizens. Immediately starting off in chapter 1, page 19, Equality 7-2521 helps the reader understand that citizens “strive to be like all [their] brother men, for all must be alike”. After the establishment of the Great Rebirth, a law has been created where individualism no longer existed. Everyone is equal to each other.
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
We never learn his name, but this is his show—the novel chronicles his path to realizing his invisibility. Back then black people were “invisible”. We were basically nothing in the eyes of whites. All of it was kind of true so there isn’t anything unrealistic. If I could change one thing it would be him trying to prove himself to people because you don’t have to prove yourself to anybody but God.
This proves that in the society the don 't have any technology they use candles, and once the home of the scholars except equality’s invention will later change their society. Anthem and harrison bergeron have major differences in their societies, and become a dystopia. You can 't make a society greater by making everyone equal, using people 's differences to their advantage is how people should really live. There is no point in living if you are living with hatred or living in fear.The people should live in happiness but there is also not perfect world on everyone being happy. As Martin Luther King Jr. said… “The time is always right to do whats
Oedipus’s wrongdoings were caused by his actions but fate plays a role in controlling his life. A person might ask what is fate? Fate is the story of your life written with ink so it could not be changed, so free will does not exist because everything a person does is destined to be their fate. For Oedipus the king, his fate was more like hell on earth. Even before he was born the prophecies that were sent for his parents about him were not so good.
He tried really hard because segregation got way out of control. King witnessed it all the time, his kids not being able to go to the same school or right in front of his eyes signs that read “Blacks Only” or “Whites Only”.

King was a non-violence guy he just wanted his children to go to the same school, or his children to not see the signs and not understand why this is happening to them because it 's not fair.
According to Socrates the whole city should be a harmonious family and people should not know their sons daughters or vice versa. To avoid accidental incest, Socrates tells us that people must consider every child born seven to nine months after his intercourse as their own infants. Since the children are common property, being torn apart from their households and raised in a community the state is directly responsible with their education. I regard these arguments as inhumane, ironically unjust and extremely problematic in terms of implementing. States were created by the people for the sake of people.
