Two Different Stories, Still a Dystopia Although Anthem and Harrison Bergeron are two different stories there are so many similarities and differences but all lead up to the same outcome, a dystopia. Now here are some ways they are mostly the same. For one in both Harrison Bergeron and Anthem they are both being controlled by some type of leader. Such as in Harrison Bergeron the people of this society are ordered to wear handicaps because everyone should all be the same, they don’t want anyone feeling less or left out because one's individuality.

She even realized when the people also fighting a similar cause were taking the wrong path in either the way they pursued their shared beliefs or how they dealt with her and her Nina (Kidd).

The most common example for me is politics, people like me may want to be part of a party; however, the party continues doing disgusting things that makes me ashamed of even being remotely affiliated with said party. I end up going my own way after being told what to do in order to be part of that party.

Picture a world where no politicians existed and everyone had equal power to do whatever the heart desired. Many people would agree that the world would be a better place due to the many negative stereotypes about the group, yet if one were to think hard the world would be in complete chaos without its leaders.
