It is a struggle for people not to be able to think freely. However, the Council in Anthem has forbidden individual thoughts. They worked to create a society where everyone is supposedly defined as equal. These rules cause Equality to believe he is evil for not being able to prevent his individual thoughts. Equality thinks he is a sinner for thinking outside of his
People these days can be hypocritical telling other people they can 't do something ,and turn around and do it themselves. Some people don 't care that their ignorance of the law destroys others rights. As the government becomes less laissez faire; they gain more power over everyday life and strip people of their freedoms and rights. Overtime each individual within the population slowly losing their individual rights, and in turn the whole population weakens in power.Raised to be ignorant of their own right ignorant people will raise other people ignorant of their rights as well. Many people in today 's society worry about what other people do, the effects of worrying about what other people do less freedom, conformity, and close-minded.
UNICOR is a government corporation that gives jobs to inmates to prepare them for their release into society. This provides a middle person so companies do not have to directly interact with prisoners. However many issues arise with this because of the concerns with quality, ethics, security and public backlash. A lot of people would think that hiring inmates would be unfair to law abiding citizens, because not only were their jobs taken away from them due to outsourcing, but also due to prison sourcing. Why should prisoners have jobs when most people in society cannot find one?
This is an example of strict laws because it shows how controlling the government is over the society. The strict laws shows how much power the government has over the people. Not only is the in forcing of strict laws made it harder to have individuality, but also the brain washing of their citizens. The Anthem’s society brain washing of their citizens was an easy way to remove their individuality. In Anthem the society brain washed their citizens into thinking their societies way of life was
May states “His outrage at the ludicrousness of sociopolitical fads and the stupidity of the people who support them are both at play in this story.” (May). People in society will allow themselves to be controlled by the government, but never think about how the people actually run the government because they're here to serve the people needs. People today can vote on who they believe seem beneficial for their needs. Their need to be a change to where there's more flexibility for people to rotate their schedule around. A true patriot are the ones who oppose, the ones who don’t just go along, those who follows truth and righteousness and try to pass it along to the society.
Dystopia Government taking control over society for good. In the book Anthem by Ayn Rand the society is limiting everyone on what they can say and do, but there is one person named Equality that can change all of that. The Government made everyone equal by having everyone learn one thing if one person couldn’t learn it, they would stop teaching it. Ayn Rand made her book a dystopian society by using the literary element man vs. world. Ayn Rand is using man vs. world to show a dystopian society in her book Anthem.
In Equality's society rules are supposed to provide structure and balance, but at some point these rules just become a method of complete control. The house of council suppresses the individuality of all the people by creating laws and regulations to hold everyone equal. The house of council holds them under such a tight guard that the people do not know any better. The laws presented in Anthem are occurring in today's society; people are allowing it to continue until someone like Equality revolts against the government, and puts an end to the unjust ways of the governing body. The citizens cannot speak, love, or even think without being in fear of being punished by their own governing body.
Horrified of our nation’s government which was created for the people by the people. I sort already that the knowledge of our government being corrupt and powerful, but I had no idea what extent the government can go to, to basically do anything. It really sets us back to Aristotle time, in the time of no democracy, where if you question the government and their way of work, one will get severe punishment for it and Swartz is the perfect example of this. It is really scary how one’s normal lives can be shifted upside down by the one thing that suppose to protect us, our government. I was in the knowledge that the laws are suppose to protect us from any harm.
Living in a democratic country is a privilege considering, we are not controlled by one, rather the members of a state have a say. Without unity, democracy may be at risk because citizens may opt out of democratic engagement. “Isolation Bad for Democracy” written by Tom Sandborn, covers topics on how this dilemma has various solutions. During these modern times, our economy is constantly fluctuating causing people to move, following their work. Socially, we may feel connected to our peers, but when it comes to reality there is a strong disconnection between human interactions.
On the one hand, this is a clear sign of rebellion towards the one in power, in other words, the Government ruled by men. On the other hand, it can be seen that they actually did not have any other option since their words would not convince the Government to provide them the rights to vote. To sum up, in this book we are presented different situations that suffragettes had to go through, but if the period of time, and society’s mentality there are several aspects that can be pointed out. First, after the negative of the Government, manifestation organized by suffragettes would have the presence of police forces which were hostile to them; second, in an initial stage suffragettes had people’s support, both men and women; thirdly, it can be seen that the Government was, without any doubt, the main obstacle suffragettes had to deal with, in term of law and trials suffragette were diminished; finally, the rebellious attitude, in terms of the use of violence, that women chose was because their arguments, speeches and peaceful actions were not working: and that was the last option they had to make their voice
