In this world we live for the sake of individuality and what makes a person different from the other seven billion people. Individuality keeps society going and improving day-by-day. By the time scientists have found a successful way to clone humans, this process is going to create a trend, impacting humanity, which “would be a radical new form of
When people think of terrorism, some of the worst events in history come to mind, such as September 11th, or the sarin attack on the subways of Tokyo. Still far too many people seem to overlook the most common type of terrorism, the type of terror that anyone could cause, your parents, your siblings, your neighbor, or even a classmate. Domestic terror is a growing trend, due to easy access to extremist ideas through the internet, along with peoples blind eye towards the situation. We must act now to stop it from occurring. Social media helps to bring social issues to the front of people's attention, meaning groups
North Korea has “developed its own smartphones, tablets, and software, including Red Star 3.0, an operating system that mimics iOS” (Jerreat). The smartphones and internet software “were carefully designed to control and monitor information,” along with the surveillance capabilities from Red Star 3.0 (Jerreat). North Korea’s own journalists “remain strident propagandists, and advances in technology that could open up channels to independent news are fought with ever-stricter censorship and surveillance measures” (Jerreat). Even if journalists wanted to get away from the censored media, they will never be able to do so because of the potential consequences. Although Red Star is not an ideal internet server, at least North Koreans have some access to the web, except for that fact that it is “restricted to certain elite grade schools, select research institutions, universities, factories, and privileged individuals” (Sedaghat).
In the text of “Harrison Bergeron” by Kurt Vonnegut the government has wrongly interpreted equality and made it into a ghastly, horrible thing. This is awful because they are nearly torturing their citizens to ensure equality. George is a citizen of the society and the father of Harrison Bergeron. He is required to wear an ear radio, to keep him from using his above average intelligence. This radio like many other handicaps that ensure equality has horrible effects.
Governments invade people’s privacy through many different ways such as spying through technological devices. For example in the novel 1984, government invaded the people’s privacy through the telescreens which left the citizens from Oceania with no privacy. Nowadays, the government invades our privacy through our phones. The privacy violations Americans experience today are similar to the privacy violations in 1984 because the government spy on us through our, Wi-Fi and GPS tracking. What we should take from 1984 is that we are being spied on by the government all time and that they are taking away our right of
In both stories the people in power focus on the wrong things and it ends up hurting their citizens. The people in both worlds rely on technology to do very important jobs and this reliance causes the societies to misuse their technology. When people feel as if their freedoms are being restricted, they will rebel. In “Harrison Bergeron” and “The Pedestrian”, the controlling government, dependency and misuse of technology and the significant rebellious acts caused by these things create a dystopian world for its
For example, someone is doing their math homework and have to figure out what nine multiplied to the second power is. Instead of figuring it out on their own, they turn to the calculator, an electronic device, because they feel as if they are not smart enough to figure out on their

In conclusion, the media always portray things in such a dramatic way. As you can see of what you read off my paper that not everything you see or hear in movies, tv shows or any kind of media is true. We can’t allow the media to over power what’s the true. As we pass from generation to generation, our society keeps getting worse and it’s our fault. I read this quote saying “we blame society, but we are the society”.
