These stories explain thoroughly how the idea of equality is naturally impossible and how corruption will always exist. Nevertheless, when compared to "Harrison Bergeron", Anthem does a better job of controlling their society and expresses less government corruption, however both stories are not necessarily moral. In comparison to “Harrison Bergeron”, Anthem has more control over their society because of their severe punishments. In the beginning of Anthem, the main character Equality-7251 gives the readers background information of what type of environment he grew up in. Equality discusses how he was more advanced than others in school and through which he says, “we were lashed more often than all the other children”(22).

This system can be used to analyze how characters progress morally throughout the course of a story, such as Huck in the Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. Huck moves towards being a conscientious and moral member of society as he progresses through the novel even though the odds are stacked against him; raised in a situation where he had no positive influences and faced with countless situations where acting out of self interest was the easier option, Huck became a righteous character who we should all wish to emulate. Though Huck’s father served as his main, and first, influence, he lacked a moral compass. He was against Huck attending school and often robbed other people and just called it ‘borrowing’. Huck’s dad was depicted “[laying] drunk with the hogs in yard” (8).

Everyone has been persuaded to believe that everybody is equal and no one has the right to have individualised thoughts. Equality 7-2521’s thirst for knowledge helps him break out of these chains. His desire to learn leads him to branch out and explore new things, helping him form new individualised thoughts.
Reading those figures, it only shows how students prioritize their physical performance more than their class performance. This issue is a serious and a must tackled issue to be discussed for the enlightenment of the students’ mind, because in college, students are supposed to be focused in studying for the success of their future, but for students who want to replace the school uniform that’s usually never the case because of the time and money they will spent to wear faddy clothes. Most teenagers make first impressions which are mostly based on the clothes you wear to classify you as a nerd, a geek, a jock, the queen bee, and any other typical cliché names. Nobody will be friends with you if you are dressed like a geek or a goth, but that’s the problem teens are judged before getting to know the kindness that is actually hidden underneath all
