As we have deducted these two are two completely different people, while the kid stands by his message to society not paying attention to the possible consequences, Marx will do say whatever he can to please the others, a perfect example of this contrast is when the savage is arguing with Mustapha Mond about freedom not caring of the problems that could follow while Bernard is stating everything possible so that he doesn’t get in trouble the author shows this character’s weakness by writing “You can’t send me. I haven’t done anything. lt was the others. I swear it was the others.”(232) while he portrays the teen’s strength and leadership when he writes “But the new ones are so stupid and horrible. Those plays, where there’s nothing but helicopters flying about and you feel the people kissing.
He was no longer Chris Mccandless he was now Alex Supertramp. He would no longer shave his beard and began his journey to seek what he so longed for. He would get rid any and everything that reminded him of the resentment he felt towards his family but mainly his father. His father played a major role in him wanting to deviate from his family.

94)” In Ayn Rand’s book Anthem, the main character Equality finally learns the word “I.” He finally begins to think for himself after years of living in a society where the word “I” was banned. The people in the society that Equality lived in could never think of themselves, but could only think of what would benefit everyone. In an excerpt of a novel titled The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand, she talks about individualism versus collectivism. Anthem deals with this topic as well. Equality’s road to individuality begins with standing up to his oppressors and learning that thinking for one’s self is the only way to happiness and success.
In Delirium Lena and Alex rebel with their love, too. The couple does not respect the rules of the system for example they meet up although they know it is illegal. In addition to that they pass the fence and flee to the Wilds. With these offences they risk their normal life and status in the society because they are going to be followed by the regulators and be punished. They would be cured or imprisoned at the crypts.
Jonas and The Giver are talking about how there can’t be twins in the community; “The Giver's face took on a solemn look. "I wish they wouldn't do that," he said quietly, almost to himself. "Well, they can't have two identical people around! Think how confusing it would be!" Jonas chuckled.” (146) The community releases the lighter twin of the set because it would be too confusing to have two identical people around and that would make it hard for the people.
She was forced to work and stay there without having any idea of what was freedom whatsoever. Before Cora was a young woman everyone thought her mother ran away from the plantation without being caught, but the readers find out her mother died from a snake bite. Due to this Cora thought that her mother was living a life where she could be able to spend the day as she chooses, free of persecution. Then one day she runs away on the Underground Railroad. As she is running away Cora thinks she will be able to head north without unforeseen setbacks like her mother, but is forced to kill a boy who saw her running away in order to make it to her path of freedom.
He said “ I wanted to live deep a suck all the marrow out of life”. By that statement he is saying that everyone gets this only life so get the most out of it as you can and not let the little things slow you down. He stated that “ we all still live meanly like ants” meaning that life should be simple but the people around us still try to make each others life difficult. He has stood by what he has said by making his own life simple by living in a cabin out of town and away from people using the land. Thoreau was angus believe
“Child-man in the promise land” Kay S. Hymowitz and “Unpopular Opinion: Marriage Will Never Be a Feminist Choice” by Meghan Murphy talk about many of the same things in different ways throughout both of the articles. In “child-man in the promise land” the main focus of the article is how men don't want to grow up and they want to live the fun life and drink and party with their friends. In “ Unpopular Opinion: Marriage Will Never Be a Feminist Choice” it focuses on women and how they should be against marriage and she goes on to give many examples supporting why. Does getting married make a man a man and is it really something that everyone has to do? In “Child-Man in the Promise Land” it talks a lot about men's lack of maturity and not wanting to make commitments.All throughout the article she focuses on man and how them wanting to live a single life and party is immature but not once does she proceed to talk about the women who do the same.
But we haven’t seen the changes for Equality who’s supposed to be the strong man who protects his family and do all the work. Until he says “We did this work alone, for no words of ours could take the Golden One away from the big glass which is not glass” (Rand 92). This is not only showing Equality’s change, of doing all the hard work and all the hunting, but also another snapshot at the “new” Liberty and how she loves looking at herself in the mirror. ( conclusion sentence ) In the beginning the relationship was still unknown and Liberty and Equality had just met. As the book moves on Liberty is more submissive, and Equality became stronger and more selfish.
(SIP-A) Montag is not willing to believe what the society says about books and is denying it. (STEWE-1) Even though Montag has read the books that he hid and does not understand them he still tries. “Here now, said Montag We’ll start over again, at the beginning” (Bradbury 65). Even though his society has said books are harmful he reads them and does not hesitate to read again, even though Beatty said to Montag books have nothing in them he still reads, he rejected his society and is not willing to believe what Beatty says is true. (STEWE-2) Montag realizes how the people of the society are so distracted from the world and sees how wrong it is.
Equality broke the law of no being with everybody, and not being in the place he was suppose to be at, he also didn’t report it straight to the council like he was suppose too. Conformity took place here because he didn’t report it to the council like he was suppose to and broke the laws. “It was a great tunnel. The walls were hard and smooth to the touch, it felt like stone but it was not stone.” (Rand 32). After they discovered the subway they went they everyday and experimented with new stuff they got from the community and started learning about the unmentionable times.
THE TIME DEATH STOLE MY KISS By: Amy Stendrup As I ran through the scrub and forest, seeing all the smoke and hearing the engine sputter over and over only made me need to get to him faster. I had to save him; I had to do it for Liesel. There was no true reason in my mind, but I had to know whether or not he’d survived. Mother had warned me not to run, not to save him, for fear of the ridicule I would bring onto our family for keeping an enemy pilot alive rather than allowing him to fade away. It’d never made sense to me why all of them were so infatuated with death.
"You will never influence the world by being just like it." Ayn Rand and Kurt Vonnegut both make sure that the protagonist have a different mindset aside from others that abide by the rules of an unfair lifestyle. They both learn to be independent and go by their beliefs. Although "Harrison Bergeron" by Kurt Vonnegut and Anthem by Ayn Rand are both dystopian pieces whose protagonist are incredibly similar. Harrison and Equality both are defiant in their own way and are very much trouble makers that choose to go on their on paths.
It was a curse to be smarter than everyone else (Anthem). Equality was shame upon because the government made everyone uniform or at least tried. “We strive to be like our brothers, for all men must be alike.” (Rand, 19). For the fear of being the odd one, Equality had to strive the someone he wasn’t for a long time. ¨We, Equality 7-2521, were not happy in those years in the Home of Students.¨ (21).
One can learn to keep these labels to oneself. By keeping labels private, the labels will be only with the individual and will not be centralized and collective. If the labels are not centralized and collective, they will cease to exist, inviting tolerance and equality. Another solution which should be combined with the prior is the analyzing of history to learn from mistakes made. As every day turns, history grows, and with it are the things that can be learned.
