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.
