Equality would get rid of every single rule taking away from a person 's life in his envision of a world. Equality hates the word We which indicates a group and not a single person because it takes away from people significance. After Equality discovers the word I, he writes about the horrors of the word We “I am done with the monster of “we,” the word of serfdom, of plunder, of misery, falsehood and shame” (Rand 97). Equality says these things with hatred towards the word which shows his great passion to individuality. Something that he would be sure is in his own world.
In reality, he is disgusted by the sight of his creation so he abandons it leaving it all alone in the world without any guidance and runs away to the next room. Victor himself suffered from being a social outcast and now he bestowed the same feeling onto the creature by abandoning him. By treating the creature as an outcast, “he will become wicked … divide him, a social being, from society, and you impose upon him the irresistible obligations—malevolence and selfishness” (Caldwell). Not only is Victor selfish for abandoning his creature but he is shallow as well. Instead of realizing that he achieved his goal of bringing life to an inanimate body he runs way because of how hideous it is.
I am firmly opposed to the manipulation of one’s subjects for the better of the ruler. Machiavelli’s concept for a prince’s soldiers is a malicious brainwash. A feared ruler will only induce despise from his people. I regard Machiavelli’s justification for a prince containing aspects of evil to be a unethical form of governing a society. His depiction of a feared ruler disregards the prosperity of his people and does not account for their pursuit of happiness.
When the creature came to life, he was extremely terrified by its appearance and abandoned it. He had not thought of any consequence of this action. I would like to analyze the character of the creature independently from its creator. It was ‘born' as a very kind being, which thought that it related to humankind. At the end of a novel, it claims: "When I run over the frightful catalogue of my sins, I cannot believe that I am the same creature whose thoughts were filled with sublime and transcendent visions of the beauty and the majesty of goodness.
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.
The plot lets humans believe the Buggers are terrible, mean things. Their fears do not let the humans ask themselves if the fears are reasonable or not.

Ender takes the position of fleet commander for humans against the Bugger army.
Society asks people to change themselves to fit in. However, people do not have to conform to the standards set by society. In Harrison Bergeron by Kurt Vonnegut, society forced people to be alike, in every way possible. No one person better than another. However, it shows that handicapping those who have excelled in an area of life or have greater ability than another is an injustice.
However, Jonas was given the job as the receiver of memory, which granted him the memory of the previous receiver, known as “the giver.” Those memories were filled with color, sex, music, hatred, and all the other forbidden items of his society. Jonas begins to despise the ways of his society and wanted to live among a society that had a life of choices. The realization of what a horrible society he really lives in led Jonas’ to decide plan an escape to another society which possesses those things his society does not. This
Additionally, due to the government’s oppression, it declines to disclose information on the ideas, expressions and actions of particular tributes they oppose, individuals are completely enslaved by the center of control, the Capitol. Evidently, the Capitol denies to provide information from one district to another, simply to keep them isolated from another. Resources such as food and medicine are also restricted from use from the districts and the tributes which shows a sign of empathetic expression. “I want to do something, right here, right now, to shame them, to make them accountable, to show the Capitol that whatever they do or force us to do
The need of disengaging themselves from the others, i.e. the mainstream and the normal, in the description of a Irkutsk hippie, is crucial in the process of getting approved by the community: “the main thing was— the non-acceptance of Soviet life… If you dress differently, it means you are one of ours. If you curse Soviet power— you are one of ours” (“Love, Peace” 585). Their apparent resistance to the Soviet propaganda drew attention from the party authorities, who attempted to suppress the counter culture by arresting and interrogating the participants and condemning them to be “the parasites on the Soviet system” for having no jobs (“Where Did” 635). For instance, in merely a period of six months in 1972, Komsomol activists and police organized more than one hundred raids against hippies (Zhuk 7).
This is why in the novel Fahrenheit 451, Ray Bradbury’s use of connotations associated with machines and society against those associated with mirrors and nature in the work reveals how society’s rejection of unfair reality in favor of a false utopia of equality dehumanizes the population. The critical differences between humans and
During the seminar, I voted for “yes.” I believe that the preservation of human life is worth the cost of the clones’ lives. I feel that since the clones can not reproduce and lack the capability to prolong the human race; they have an insignificant purpose. If humans can reproduce, they deserve to have their lives prolonged for the sake of the preservation of human life. Taking the lives of innocent lives (clones) is an inhumane thing to do, but as we recently discussed from Macbeth, in order to get what you want, you must take certain actions or measures to get it. What the guardians, Miss Emily and Madame wanted was to preserve human life and they achieved that, but they had to take certain measures in the process.
Moreover, human clones would have no choice but to live with being clones, and possibly the pain of some kind of mutation caused by their cloning. In “The Birthmark,” before Aylmer attempted to remove the birthmark from his wife, she started second guessing him, asking questions like, “Perhaps its removal may cause cureless deformity…” (Hawthorne 2). She was wondering if his solution would make her “flaw” worst, which it did in the end. The problem is, clones do not have this option, even though clone deformities are
His prediction was that people would become so absorbed to their “barber shop families” and “seashell radios” (Bradbury) that they have no concept of world problems. This world could be classified as an anti utopia, which means a world that has problems but only the people from the outside can see them. In history society ignored the concentration camps back in World War II, humanity is destroying the earth, a screwed up educational system in America, and have become oblivious to what has become of society. With this comes ignorance, which society is full of. In 1939, World War II began, which started the rise of Nazi Germany under Adolf Hitler’s rule.
Nemur and Dr. Strauss Charlie was disposable, and only used for their personal gain and advancements in the operation. The institute thought Charlie was a good person to test on, because he had no one to care and look out for him. Also, even though Charlie was a human being, he was viewed equal to lab mice. Charlie was not informed about the risks and consequences the surgery could bring upon him, which led him to thinking life would be impeccable. The doctors; opportunists, could have made a logical assumption that Charlie might die because of the other mice they tested on that died.
