Anthem's society and the society in the movie, "The Matrix", are very similar but also very different.

The similarities were the numbers, orders being given, someone got caught doing something, which I think might happen later on in the book, and in "The Matrix" it says follow the white rabbit and in Anthem they followed the metal pieces when they discovered the tunnel.

As you see societies that are based on the same idea are always share differences and similarities between all of them. How the people of these societies deal with their situations and what they do during the day shows the differences in them. In Anthem, you see a society that the government has total control over and the people have no control over anything that happens and they are on a set schedule and they are just seen as workers and nobody is different.

“Repent Harlequin Said the Tictockman” by Harlan Ellison wrote in 1965 is about a time keeping government trying to achieve complete efficiency.
