He while he was a sort of Stateman, he was more Kennedy than Roosevelt but without the high level administrative wit either of them had.

Marcus believes this is when good deeds are truly good because the good deed can be produced again without stipulations (5.6). When one practices a deed multiple times, after being taught the deed, one can eventually recreate said deed without much thought.

Facts are facts, independent of any consciousness. No amount of praying, desperate longing for, or hopeful pleading can change the facts. Nor will denying or evading the facts erase them: the facts remain immutable. As stated in Rand’s philosophy, reality does not to be rewritten or escaped, but, solemnly and profoundly, faced. One of her favorite sayings is: “Man is an end himself.” This means, Man—every man—is an end in himself, not the ends and
This made people see and hear him. Finally Obierika could be remembered for something more than twiddling his thumbs in the background. He made things happen.

The end of his story may not have been told, but his legacy proves that just thinking about things will not change anything in the
Anthem has put multiple rules into action so that everyone is “equal” and there are “less” problems. What the society doesn’t know is that there are problems in Anthem. Equality sees these problems and will not implement them in the world that he envisions. Rules, regulations, and controls all have a purpose and a reason as to why they exist. No matter how outrageous
