In the novel Anthem the author, Ayn Rand discusses the ways Equality 7-2521’s world is a dystopia because independent thought, information and freedom are restricted, the natural world was banished and distressed, a concept is worshipped by the citizens and the society is an illusion of a perfect , utopian world. To begin with, Ayn Rand explains how the Equality 7-2521’s world is a dystopian society because the freedom of think and do anything for yourself is restricted. Equality states “It is a sin to write this. It is a sin to think words no others think and to put them down upon a paper no others are to see... It is as if we were speaking alone to no ears but our own.
Regardless, very few actually attempt to discover the truth. In the novel, Brave New World, by Aldous Huxley provides several examples of the truths individuals refuse in order to live in ignorance and bliss. Society thrives on its stability. (BS) The Controllers revoke any option of truth because it creates discomfort and discomfort encourage unhappiness. Huxley writes Mustapha Mond as the perfect example of the control of truth to ensure happiness.
Howard Roark is the ultimate embodiment of Ayn Rand’s philosophy of objectivism. Objectivism advocates for the rejection of altruism and the pursuit of self-happiness, which is precisely how Roark lives his life. According to Rand, Roark “struggles for the integrity of his creative work against every form of social opposition.” Roark is Rand’s depiction of the ideal human being due to his indefectible pursuance of rational self-interest. Rand regards as ideal for a human being because he is the epitome of a freethinker. Although readers don’t see Roark’s journey towards self-reliance, Roark starts the book as an individualist and ends as one, undergoing almost no character development throughout the novel.

So, in order to restore order within one’s individual life, one must defy the social norms that distance themselves from nature to find harmony with it. Furthermore, his use of tone to exemplify his argument is also effective as he condemns people for living rushed, unfulfilled lives for the sake of prosperity and materialistic possessions. When Thoreau says that ”when we are unhurried and wise, we perceive that only great and worthy things have any permanent and absolute existence, that petty fears and petty pleasures are but the shadow of the reality,”(279) he employs a critical tone by stating that people are blinded by these petty things that misconstrue
In his article “The Mythology of Hope and Change”, Ira Chernus Speaks about human tendencies. He tells us that humans are neither good nor bad. We strive to do the right thing, to care for one another. Yet at the same time, we are very selfish, lazy, and unwilling to go out of our comfort zone to help strangers. Humans, or Americans, enjoy the idea of a new life, a better life.
BACKGROUND Socrates was convinced that our souls are where virtues and vices are found, they are vastly more important for our lives than our bodies or external circumstances. The quality of our souls determines the character of our lives, for better or for worse, much more than whether we are healthy or sick, or rich or poor. If we are to live well and happily, as he assumed we all want to do more than we want anything else, we must place the highest priority on the care of our souls. That means we must above all want to acquire the virtues, since they perfect our souls and enable them to direct our lives for the better. If only we could know what each of the virtues is we could then make an effort to obtain them.
Thus allowing the reader to interpret the tone better because of how Grendel expresses his feeling. On the other hand, Beowulf gives the reader a generalization of how he sees society. Plain and simple. Beowulf only sees the world as good and evil, black and white, there is no gray area, causing the tone to be bland and boring due to no detail or unexpected turns. Beowulf overlooks society as a horrible place that only " the vicious raids and ravages of Grendel, his long and unrelenting feud, nothing but war...young and old were hunted down by the death shadow" (line 151-160).
The quote “To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment” by Ralph Waldo Emerson is a powerful quote with many strong and positive meanings. It means that you shouldn’t let the world change you in any way, whether it is your personality, or the friends you hang out with, or even your physical appearance. You are managing your own life, so you must create it the way you want to. It also means that if you don’t care what people say about you and you continue to strive as your own person, you have met one of your life goals. Be that genuine and authentic person who stays positive throughout hard times.
Equality lives for objectivism because he states, “I owe nothing to my brothers, nor do I gather debts from them. I ask none to live for me, nor do I live for any others…” (Rand 96). By saying this, Equality 7-2521 shows he believes in being an individual is more powerful than living for others. He also states that using the word ‘we’ when referring to yourself is “… the root of all evils on earth, the root of man’s torture by men, and of an unspeakable lie,” (Rand 96). The main difference between a collectivists society and Equality’s philosophy of Objectivism is priority.
