How they were raised back at home? Or they were going through a rough childhood? Is it the parents fault or the child’s fault that they end up in a juvenile jail for 15 years just because of unnoticed attention? Juvenile children are told that they could never change and no one cared about what became of them. They did not have access to education, no counseling programs, and left without help or hope.
The people in the society have no purpose and spend their days doing mindless actions that have no effect on anything substantial. Clarisse explains to Montag how no one does anything in school, and that their schedule consists of “an hour of TV class, an hour of basketball or baseball or running, another hour of transcription history or painting pictures, and more sports” (27). No one learns anything in school because no one has a need for knowledge in daily life. In school, they do what their parents spend all day doing: watching TV and mindlessly going about their days. Mildred spends all day in her ‘parlor’, and not even TV has any meaning to it.
In the book Anthem, by Ayn Rand, it tells about a flawless society where everything is gathered and distributed. Eventually the main character escapes the society and lives on his own with everything he can do himself. Ayn Rand went too far when she made the character completely autonomous. Three reasons that support this claim is how they couldn’t make decisions on their own, the way their life was mapped, and how people interact with each other. In Anthem the society did not have any opinion on anything or how their life would go.
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.
They were to live at the Home of Infants until they were of age five. After living at the House of Infants for five years, they were then sent to the Home of the Students. Here, each person would complete ten years of learning and then be sent straight to work. In the years in the Home of the Students, Equality 7-2521 thought of the lessons to be too easy. This was considered a great sin because it was not good to be different from their brothers.
She had not been informed that Matt was in a cold cell and had El Patrón take Matt out. Virtually every single person in the house only treated Matt properly when El Patrón is present and tries to avoid Matt as much as possible. Matt is now eleven years old and the only people that accept him are Celia, María, El Patrón, and Tam Lin. Celia is his caregiver. Since Matt is a clone, he has no parents.
In the book “Anthem” by Ayn Rand there is a society where everyone is the same. The book starts out by introducing Equality 7-2521, a young man who doesn't understand why he can’t follow the same rules as others. In “Anthem” people were never taught the word “I” but “we” because they should not care about anyone than the people around them. In the book it explains many different characters that break the rules for their friends. Having friends, looking at girls, talking to girls is not allowed.
The book, Anthem, by Ayn Rand, is an amazing book. In the book Anthem, the author examines a terrifying future where individuals have no name or identity. A young man living in a future in which people have lost all knowledge of individualism, to the point where they don’t even know words like “I”. Everyone lives and works in collective groups. All aspects of daily life are dictated by councils.
It is hard to believe that just a few days ago they had received the call that little Candra Wade had been abducted at this very park. Though Naia was not new on the job, she was certainly new to the missing child unit. She had worked her way up from road patrol and was finally engaged in a part of the job that corresponded with her reason for joining the Sheriff 's Department in the first place; children. Though Naia had no children of her own, at least no children that she had any legal responsibility to, she had many reasons to want to protect the children in this city. Reasons that she had never been able to disclose to anyone.
