For instance, no citizen was allowed to wish for a specific job, yet Equality pictured his life with a job as the House of the Scholars (Rand 24). He did many things, all of which were not allowed, like trying to become a scholar, creating the light bulb, and choosing to fall in love with a woman (Rand 56 and 59). Equality may have gone against every rule, but it helped him find his true identity and eventually realize that he is not a “we”, but an “I”(Rand 94). Communism causes citizens to miss out on unique talents they have and to silence their own voices. Individualism is needed to have a spontaneous and happy life, or else a person's lifestyle becomes predictable and uneventful.
It is interesting how you can not ride a bicycle until you are nine, but you can have a job that plays an important role in the community. There is something that our communities have in common and in contrast at the same time about birthdays, however it is how when you get older, you have to do less community hours and projects. The woman is speaking at the ceremony of twelve says to the group “ ‘You’ll no longer be spending time with your group of Elevens. After the Ceremony of Twelve, you’ll be with your Assignment group, with those in training. No more volunteer hours.
If you read a dystopia, whichever one, you will realize that the population it portrays follows the order of the government and doesn’t thing beyond those boundaries in fear of the consequences. Without technology and science, a society cannot flourish and will remain frozen in time. Technology is a fundamental factor in the growth of a nation and society. Dystopian literature generally provides the reader with a negative image of technology. It describes a life in which technology does not exist and is not necessary to sustain the society it portrays.
It’s not a coincidence that every year on the second Monday of October, students have a day off from school. That day is used to commemorate Christopher Columbus’s arrival to the Americas. Christopher Columbus and many other explores departed from Europe seeking to discover new land. This time in history became know as the Age of Exploration. Historians debate whether the Age of Exploration is as great as it is said to be.
This proves that in the society the don 't have any technology they use candles, and once the home of the scholars except equality’s invention will later change their society. Anthem and harrison bergeron have major differences in their societies, and become a dystopia. You can 't make a society greater by making everyone equal, using people 's differences to their advantage is how people should really live. There is no point in living if you are living with hatred or living in fear.The people should live in happiness but there is also not perfect world on everyone being happy. As Martin Luther King Jr. said… “The time is always right to do whats
Equality does this by when he first falls in love with Liberty, he is obsessed.

In the book Soundscapes by Shelemay, it talks about the different ways where people use the music to mark segments of the life cycle. An experience that I have that is a great example of this is, during the Christmas season my family and other close relatives gather together each year to sing songs, have food and act out the story of how Jesus was born. This is what is known as “Posadas,” which is similar to a party that people from Mexico perform as part of their tradition when Christmas is about to arrive. The “Posadas” require about nine days, but now people only perform it for one or two days. During the “Posadas” we tend to sing different songs that relate to Catholic songs.
Society’s values influence people to construct their personal mores around them, and those who do not are not accepted by society. In our society, those who have well-paying careers are valued above those who do not. So when McCandless decided against following the path society expects him to, his parents were upset. “Chris informed his parents that he had no intention of going to college. When Walt and Billie suggested that he needed a college degree to attain a fulfilling career, Chris answered that careers were demeaning ‘twentieth-century inventions,’ more of a liability than an asset, and that he would do fine without one, thank you” (114).
My wife Clementine decided we need these journals to document what we see on our travels to Oregon next month, however I honestly think they are a waste of time. At least little Brooke enjoys it. On her 6th birthday last year we got her a notebook that she 's been writing in so I think she 's ready for these journals. I remember three years ago when Clementine was 18 we would go on walks around our little town of bloomesdale. I shore do miss those times, but we haven 't gone on many walks since then, because she 's been cross with me about overruling her vote to go to Oregon.
The author believes that many schools and sport teams should divided based on the month they were born so the students can compete with other children that are the same age. This should take in place until the difference of a several months of the kid’s life does not determine strength, intelligence, and ability at school or on the field. While I was reading Outliers it did not change my perspective with someone success since the age of someone does not matter when it comes to performance and abilities in school or a sport at a later age. Even though I have a later birthday and knowing that it did not make me have disadvantage in school or sport since I was placed in a better math class in 7th grade which proves the theory wrong. I think the birthday thing is just a coincidence and I need more information to make me believe that birthdays have an effect on someone’s life when it comes to strength and

Sure one could see this as a good thing, but throughout Anthem, Ayn Rand shows that conformity is not as good as it sounds, but rather the worst way to live. Equality succeeds in finding happiness and meaning in life by learning to be an individual and taking risks that no one in his society dared to do
In both dystopian novels they prove their points on how their society is different in relationship but the same in the concept of equality. Both are different by relationship but the same in equality and each society discovers the way of individualism. In our future everyone should believe individualism will be applied to our daily lives and the government will remove
