To begin with, Both the story and the movie had the same introduction/ Opening; “Everybody was finally equal. They were not only equal before God and the law. They were equal every which way. Nobody was smarter than anybody else. Nobody was better looking than anybody else.
Could you imagine if you lived in a community where everyone was equal? Sounds great doesn’t it? Equality isn’t as good as it sounds. In “The Giver” by Lois Lowry everyone in the community was completely the same. They couldn 't see colors and they didn’t have feelings.
Yes, I also do think it is wrong for him to be discriminated due to his disorder, but there may have been other ways around it. Secondly, Anton Vincent’s brother tells him what he is doing is illegal and is against the law, therefore he is not following the rules. But Vincent tells him that he has gotten to this position on his own merit. Vincent is willing to go jail afterwards because he just wants to live his dream. I think that Vincent would not have had to break the rules if they did not discriminate against him, therefore they did not leave him with very many options.
Inclusive Practiceâ€™s ensure that any person wishing to participate in any task, activity or normal day to day life can. This promotes equality and supports diversity; it supports each person to live their life to their full potential and
By not including any in his examples and not even mentioning them, intentional or not, it makes the reader feel like only white collar men can be physical geniuses. However, the truth is that anyone who is the best at what they do can be a physical genius through visualization and development of mental abilities that others just don’t develop. The best cook, soldier, teacher, or janitor in the world is a physical genius. Being a physical genius is being the very best at whatever you are passionate about. Whether the ability to be a physical genius is innate or something you can develop over time, I'm not sure.
It’s because the world he lives in has affected him in such a way to be like this. In Kurt Vonnegut’s Harrison Bergeron, certain devices weigh down the main character in order to equalize him with the others. This short story is dystopian; an offshoot to Orwell’s utopian world. Winston too is weighed down by his own society; he is forced to be a lesser version of himself, all for Big Brother. They don’t do anything to physically change him, but if he is thought to break the rules or is simply too smart for his own good, off to the Ministry of Love.
Imagine a society where everyone was the equal. Nobody was smarter, better looking, stronger, or quicker than anyone else. In the year 2081, this is what society was like for Harrison Bergeron, a strong, charming, and intelligent teenager. To insure no one was unique, anyone who was stronger, smarter, or more attractive than an “average” person were required by law to wear handicaps, which are instruments that prevents people from using their talents. When the citizens were too strong to be held back by handicaps, they were taken from their homes and into custody, which is where Harrison was held.
Nobody was stronger or quicker than anybody else. All this equality was due to…. the unceasing vigilance of agents of the United States Handicapper General.” However, this has a negative impact on the people because it is a forced equality.
At last the beautiful claim is fully in the spotlight, shining brightly for all to see how equality without freedom is terrible and is a huge flaw in this phoenix of a world. Harrison Bergeron shines light on no matter how flawless something seems, there’s always a fault somewhere along the line of correction and it will never go away because faults makes anything perfect the way it
He is special because he wants change and does not just live with what he has. Harrison and Equality both crave a different and fair lifestyle no matter what the cost it. Although "Harrison Bergeron" by Kurt Vonnegut and Anthem by Ayn Rand are both dystopian pieces whose protagonist are incredibly similar. Both Harrison and Equality were equally defiant and refused live by the rules that everyone is supposed to live by. They live with this mentality because they have a special thinking process and want more than the dull lives they live.
If everyone was made equal how is it fair to others? In the story “Harrison Bergeron” by Kurk Vonnegut Jr, The year is 2018, people are completely equal, and they are the same in every way possible. There are people in the society being handicapped to be made the same as the other people in the society. The people who aren’t handicapped are the people who have “perfect” intelligence, strength, and beauty, which means that they aren’t that big of a threat. The superiors(intellectual people) are a bigger threat to the society, the so called “perfect” citizens are not a threat because they can’t process their own thoughts very well.
