Studies have shown that allowing felons to vote would “help ensure against recidivism and continued antisocial behavior” which would bloom democracy (Faceoff 6). Here, felon enfranchisement supporters argue that eliminating felons from voting leads to lower rates of participation in government. Without a large amount of voter participation, The United States defies its founding Declaration of Independence that aimed to give Americans an equal voice in politics, economy, and government. Therefore, barring felons from voting leads to the direct destruction of the democratic principles of The United States. Additionally, Brennan Center, a non-partisan law institute that focuses on issues of democracy, found that allowing felons to vote would lead to an expansion of democracy (Bernd 5).
She throws a fit and tries to refuse it and blame others. Likewise, Katniss seems to be making fun of the popular slogan of the Hunger Games: “May the odds be ever in your favor.” Obviously the odds are not in anyone’s favor because at the end of the day the tributes are either going to die or they are going to kill everyone else and have to live with the memories for the rest of their lives. Their is no real winner in that situation, yet the Capital makes it seem like a fun game, the Hunger “Games”. Capital children are mocking it because they know they never have to live it. According to Maria Magher, “The people of District 12 suffer daily from hunger and poverty.

The famous Roman orator and senator Publius Tacitus once wrote that “the more the laws, the more corrupt the government.” A corrupt system always tries to put restrictions and create laws in order to ensure that their power as an authority is not in danger of being disregarded. In Suzanne Collins’ renowned novel The Hunger Games, the Capitol is a corrupt system in Panem because it abuses its powers to control the citizens. It does so by forcing restrictions on the freedom of the people, favoring the rich and imposing harsh punishments. Firstly, The Capitol believes in a system that restricts the citizen 's freedom to ensure their supremacy on the public. For instance, when Katniss sneaks into the woods and comments about the situations of starvation
Huxley’s main argument in Brave New World is if the human race continues to allow science, technology, and material objects control our lives, society will lose a reasonable and moral lifestyle. Huxley’s argument is well-presented because Huxley executes the creation of a dystopian world in which tyrannical leaders are able to control the consumption, emotions, and fears of the entire population through the use of technology. In the novel World State uses technology to make citizens simple-minded and controls every aspect of their lives. To readers the practices of World State might be unjust but many aspects of the novel relate to the real world. In order to address the increasing dependence on technology, Huxley incorporates satirical elements in Brave New World.

This nursery oppresses the kids by holding their minds captive, making them addicted to it’s crystal walls, not wanting to do anything but sit in there all day long. It oppresses the parents by not letting them change what is being shown on it’s walls, which causes them to resent the parlor and what it has done to their kids. Another example of oppression in the communities found in short stories occurs in Shirley Jackson’s The Lottery. Every year the town conducts a mandatory lottery involving all it’s members. That is where the similarities to any other real-life lottery ends.
Many governments use censorship to protect their citizens, however, a censorship concealing the truth and hindering individuality is harmful and impedes society progression as demonstrated in Fahrenheit 451. The negative impacts of government oppression and the literary devices of irony, realism, allusion, conflict, and symbolism Ray Bradbury used to develop the theme of censorship in Fahrenheit 451 will be discussed below using America as the reflection of the broader society. In Fahrenheit 451, Bradbury used irony to portray several methods the authority has executed to oppress information and control the population. A government may employ various methods of censoring media contents from banning the use of such media to making the media content disappear completely from the face of the earth which amounts to societal oppression with regards to information access (Harrison 59). In Fahrenheit 451, to ensure certain information has been completely eliminated, the authority used the method of censoring books; the government employed
When Sethe tells Paul D the story of her being beaten by the schoolteacher, he focuses on the beating itself, but she instead repeats the phrase “they took my milk” (Morrison 20). While slavery is a horror, it is a dead horror that people today cannot relate to. However, by having Sethe focusing on her milk, Morrison laments the pain of a mother’s sacrifices to support her children even when she is unable to support herself. Even during her assault, Sethe focuses on her breast milk, meant for her child, being taken from her. The portrayal of the hardship of motherhood allows Sethe’s experience as a slave to transcend beyond the time period and become a universal suffering that people can relate to, therefore achieving mimesis.

The government secretly control these people by installing devices and gears onto people to slow them down and to romantically match them with people who are not naturally gifted. One of the characteristic of totalitarianism is that it value state over people, and Vonnegut show us that trait by having a normal unhandicapped general who can use violence and weapon to shut down the rebel.

Information such as the 13th District (which supposedly “died” out during the war) and the people in the Capitol “living it well” is censored to the people to keep them from rebelling against the government. The government censored the information about the 13th District, which was the birthplace of the revolution that implemented the Hunger Games, because they don’t want another rebellion. Information about the Capitol is censored to the District people because they have as much wealth as the people in the Capitol does. The Capitol doesn’t have to give up children to the Hunger Games, which makes the games unfair. However, there is always someone who finds out that there is information being censored to the people.
