Equality In Harrison Bergeron And The Incredibles

81 Words1 Page
Equality strips society of its freedom and individuality. The undercover superheroes in "The Incredibles" and the handicapped citizens in "Harrison Bergeron" are individuals that confront this exact issue. Both stories incorporate a strict, elaborate system of equality that when disrupted, impose consequences that the characters must suffer. Kurt Vonnegut’s Harrison Bergeron, and The Incredibles, directed by Brad Bird, both address the implications and futility of total equality. The texts use a satirical approach of exaggeration and reversal to convey this message.
