Therefore, this action doesn’t produce equality but displays individuality. Equality is produced, according to “Harrison Bergeron”, by hindering those who have higher skill. “ Nobody was smarter than anybody else. Nobody was better looking than anybody else. Nobody was stronger or quicker than anybody else.
This is an important moment in the memoir because this is the main story in the book and one of the reasons why it was written. One quote from the book that epitomizes this aspect of the book is “Over and over in our training he would say the same sentence: Visualize the enemy, the rebels who killed your parents, your family and those who are responsible for everything that has happened to you.” This quote is important because it shows the reader how Ishmael and a bunch of other children were trained and brainwashed into fighting. In conclusion, Ishmael’s training into becoming a soldier was difficult as he was fed with the ideas of killing the rebels that killed the people he loved and cared
Comparing and contrasting 2081 to Harrison Bergeron Admit it, one time you were bored or sat down with nothing to do and couldn’t help but imagine how life would be if everyone was equal, don’t even try denying it, you’ve thought of that at least once in your life, but as any good writer would do, they’d write their thoughts down and turn it into a story, that’s exactly what Kurt Vonnegut did. Just imagine living a life where no one gets compared to others in any way. We all wish for a society like that, but Kurt showed us how equality can negatively affect our society.

The war, specifically commander Himmelstoss’ harsh training, nurtured a sense of loyalty in Paul. While training, Himmelstoss would put the boys through harsh exercises such as clearing snow out of the barrack-square with only a hand broom and a dustpan. He continually tried to break them down. However, according to Paul, it was this that developed “the finest thing that arose out of the war - comradeship” (27). This comradeship led to the development of Paul’s loyalty.
The book solely focused on his time in the camp and the harsh reality he faced. In much detail, he described his life, his feelings, and his struggle of survival throughout the time he was imprisoned there. Elie Wiesel is also a Nobel Laureate. Being of this honor and widely known, he was invited to the white house to deliver a speech. “Perils of Indifference” was the speech he gave.
He first dedicates it to other people who have grown up in an abusive house hold. He states, “We are not survivors nor victims”. By going through this troubling experience, he says that he has been “made stronger in [his] foundation”. He now believes that since he had to go through it that he should give back to abused children. “We have the opportunity to share, understand, and even heal.” Since he grew up in such an abusive house hold and endured many difficult trials through this that he wants to help other children that have been abused.
Also, there are two very interconnected storylines in The Kite Runner. We have both the family life of Amir and the life of Afghanistan as a nation. These intersect all the time. For example, right before Amir abandons and betrays his half-brother, the Soviets invade Afghanistan, pitting neighbor against neighbor. We might say the family drama stays in the foreground (what's right in front of you) and the war and national drama mostly stay in the background.
The united states has forever talked about and tried for a equal perfect society but in the story “Harrison Bergeron” it shows us that that is impossible. Nobody is equal. No one is the same we all have different specialties and different weaknesses. So the effort for making a equal society is impractical. It is impossible for an equal society.
“Harrison Bergeron“ by Kurt Vonnegut and the movie 2081 is directed by Chandler Tuttle. The theme of this story is that no one should be forced to be equal, since everyone is their own special person. The story describes George and Hazel Bergeron who both have different living perspectives.

This earpiece transmitter distracts George from any thoughts that make him learn more or feel smarter.

For me to say that if all people were equal. Then it would be chaotic so much that there might be a rebellion the first day. That could be the downfall of america by not only taking people’s god given abilities but also there’s no real amazement in people. Like if you go to a sporting event if everybody’s all equal there’s not going be any star player to really watch. The real everybody being equal thing is really dumb it’s a thing people would argue over , but the 200 and something amendments just to make everybody equal is ridiculous not
