Thus they will believe in the government for creating a society of peace. “If I tried to get away with it,” said George,”then other people’d get away with and pretty soon we’d be right back to the dark ages again, with everybody competing against everybody else. You wouldn’t like that, would you?” (line 68-70 Vonnegut) The government is trying to make it seem like people not being equal is bad. They want the public to think that being different or special creates problems so if everyone is the same it would be easy to create a method to subdue society if a problem happened to arose. If someone was different or special it would be harder to change someone to make sure no one would follow in their suit.
Their son, Harrison Bergeron is imprisoned for rebelling against government rule of an equal and safe society. In the short story “Harrison Bergeron” the prevalent theme is, equality is not the key to a safe society. In “Harrison Bergeron,” the weight balls and ear radios serve as a symbol of unfair equality throughout the story. Without these tools, there would be diversity among George and Hazel's society. The author writes, “Nobody was smarter than anyone else.
“You’d have liked him. He was two years younger than I was, but he was about fifty times as intelligent.” (Salinger, Page 38). “He was also the nicest, in lots of ways. He never got mad at anybody.” (Salinger, Page 38). Allie was innocent, and essentially everything Holden could be/wants to be.
He was remarkably well received by everyone, which is why the decision to have Washington be our first president was unanimous; a decision that will make him go down in history as one of the most beloved and incorruptible leaders in the new world. George Washington was very great and important man with an incorruptible and exceptional character. George Washington was not particularly gifted in any one area. He had very limited education, and possessed no real intellectual talent. “That he was too illiterate unlearned, unread for his station and reputation is equally past dispute.” (Page 3) At the time, one didn’t have
Being an individual means you have the right of independence and making your own decisions, which is taken away from all the men in this society. I believe Equality would agree with the notions make in Ayn Rand’s short essay “How Does One Lead a Rational Life in an Irrational Society?” considering the points she offers, if he were to hear them. The evidence given from the book states there is no individuality within the men giving supporting aspects to why Equality would dislike his leaders. “Our name is Equality 7-2521, as it is written on the iron bracelet which all men wear on their left wrists with their names upon it. (18)” Intelligence is not power in this case because the Scholars have
An egoist is the complete opposite of an altruist. An egoist is a self-centered or selfish person. At the end of the novella, Equality was brasher and started using the word “I” in his monologues about how everything was going to change because of the amazing thing that he discovered and did all by himself. That was wrong of Equality to do because his friends helped him along the way in his journey and did not quit on him even though they could have been killed. His friends really helped and Equality was not as sincere and grateful for them as they were for him.
This proves that in the society the don 't have any technology they use candles, and once the home of the scholars except equality’s invention will later change their society. Anthem and harrison bergeron have major differences in their societies, and become a dystopia. You can 't make a society greater by making everyone equal, using people 's differences to their advantage is how people should really live. There is no point in living if you are living with hatred or living in fear.The people should live in happiness but there is also not perfect world on everyone being happy. As Martin Luther King Jr. said… “The time is always right to do whats
This is saying that the people in the society all have to be equal. No one is stronger than anyone else, smarter than anyone else, or better than anyone else. The reason no one is more powerful is because they are all equal and treated the same. The reader of the book can tell that that equality is scared. Equality is in a hiding spot in a little tunnel.
These Amendments had created equality for all; however, it did not come in the ways people expected. “They were equal in every which way. Nobody was smarter than anybody else. Nobody was better looking than anybody else. Nobody was stronger or quicker than anybody else.” All citizens had to submit to devices from bags of lead balls, to weaken those of strength, to headphones to distract people with above average intelligence.
I do not agree with him. We are the same, no one is cooler than the other just because they are of a different color. Being cool means you are known more by others then someone else who is not “cool.” We were made the same way as others and living in the same
