In the short story “Harrison Bergeron, equality is clearly misunderstood, therefore I disagree that everyone in the story is equal. Although everyone was suppose to be equal because of the Handicapper General, they weren't. Equal doesn’t mean everyone thinks or speaks on the same level, equal means that everyone has the same opportunity and chances as others do.The correct way to ensure equality is to encourage success and put infrastructure in place to help and motivate those who are born into situations which limit their opportunities, and in this story, the government has not done this. The government’s idea is to enforce equality by handicapping talented people and preventing those with less talent from bettering themselves.In this story, the government's strategy is "equality by limitation." In American society, it should be "equality by opportunity."
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
Total equality became possible because the philosophers argued and supported their points. Voltaire presented religious equality as a tolerance rather than acceptance. This meant that people of all different religions could live in the same society as long as they did not fight over the values of other religions. Voltaire supports that in his, “Letters Concerning the English Nation”, written in 1726. He writes, “If only one religion were allowed in England, the government would very possibly become arbitrary; if there were but two, the people would cut one another’s throats; but as there are such a multitude, they all live happy and in peace.” John Locke
Americans are deeply rooted in the concept of equality, yet Americans regularly confuse the definition of equality with sameness. In the entirety of American history, no one has established a concrete definition for equality. The fluidity of equality’s definition leads Americans to misinterpret equality and construe the ideals of American justice. In order to understand justice, Americans have to be able to distinguish the fundamental differences between the definitions of equality and sameness. Distinguishing equality from sameness is important for understanding and clarity.
Persuasive Writing Techniques Taelyr Simmons University Of Houston Same sex marriage is a disputable topic that has raised controversy in the United States political system. The issue has been a constant recurring discussion between liberals and conservatives.

A perfect or dystopian society would have everything we wish. We could live without racism and have a nation where everyone is equally treated no matter what their racial orientation is.

In the constitution,it’s about equality and all of our Amendments are about equality, but not everybody thinks that our Amendments have anything to do with equality. Our Amendments give everyone their rights.The substance is that everyone is shown with equality and fairness,but some of our people don’t think that were shown with kindness or equality.

The superiors(intellectual people) are a bigger threat to the society, the so called “perfect” citizens are not a threat because they can’t process their own thoughts very well.

The system that the society used was called handicap, which was used to keep/make everyone the same as anybody
“Every daring attempt to make great change in existing conditions, every loftly vision of new possibilities for the human race, has been labeled Utopian” In order to have a perfect society, changes for the greater good need to be made. Unfortunately, instead of a Utopian society, it becomes a dystopian society. The reason that Utopian societies are bad is because everyone has to be equal for no one is better, there is no outside communication with other societies, and the whole family is penalized for breaking rules against the government. In “Harrison Bergeron”, all citizens had to be equal. Everyone was required to wear handicaps except for those who didn’t think much as others.
In the Declaration of Independence Thomas Jefferson wrote “We hold these truths to be self evident, that all men a created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuits of Happiness” (Jefferson). Everyone has the same rights as others, but the problem in this century is the lesbian, gay bisexual, transgender community (LGBT) does not have the equal rights as “straight” citizens do.
