Eva Smith is the perfect example to show the audience that you might not be affected by this but someone might be and you will be the blame for it. “but I felt rotten about it at the time and now I feel a lot worse.” Sheila said this because she actually felt really bad and to blame for this girl’s death unlike the rest of her family except Eric. People were put into social classes according to their wealth, jobs and success. The upper class families don’t care about others with low class and are shown to be more powerful at that time. The high class families always had the power even though they were the same as the others but more successful,
Handicapped Citizens One can only imagine living in a community where everyone is the same. Where the norm, not being bright and beautiful, but instead being dull and average. This is something that is very prominent in both the story and the movie. The story “Harrison Bergeron” written by Kurt Vonnegut, includes many ideas about how the government is trying to control the masses of people by handicapping them with devices used as headbands. It goes through the process of explaining why the people are made average and how the government goes about making those who are intellectually more advanced more like the rest.
Lastly , the phrase ‘ precisely as every one is against the negroes suggest the readers that the society still has limitations in empowering the negroes since the majority or ‘ every one ‘ is against them. Thus , she convinces the readers in a gentle method compared to the women rights because of social barriers during her time
These limitations leave the world equal from intelligence and good looks. With people pushing for equality, Vonnegut shows us a world that society is working toward. Through this “prediction” of the future, the author uses Diana Moon Glampers and Harrison Bergeron as examples to show the tragedies of the two measures- are they too equal or too unjust. Diana Moon Glampers, the Handicapper General, resembles the idea of fairness in this society. She is in charge of changing the capability of bright and intelligent people to being completely normal.
Rosa Parks once said, “Racism is still with us. But it is up to us to prepare our children for what they have to meet, and, hopefully, we shall overcome.” She describes that the future of our world has to be aware of things that have happened in the past, such as racism. The NAACP, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, is a civil rights organization that displayed their position on this certain situation. The NAACP position is correct in that Mark Twain’s un-sanitized version of The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn should be taught because the book describes the important awareness of the historical oppression of people, it provides a value of morality from that time period that students should learn, and gives an important lesson about race that should be taught to students. Students should learn about the value the novel provides from that time-period in which Mark Twain wrote, The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.
As the movie Gattaca hints, a community of people reliant only on the study of genes definitely has a few flaws. For one, the use of gene identification would be treated or used in a very mean, unfair way. As the movie showed, people with less healthy genes (such as Vincent), would be unable to reach their dreams. This is unfair! The extremely important part of our government, "everyone is created equal" is suddenly lost.
When writing the journal entries, which I intended to be more personal and insightful into Meursault’s character than the novel. I wanted to demonstrate how the actions from the past, such as having to quit school, affected him and turned him into the character readers see in the novel by taking away his meaning to life, getting an education. I did this by creating a shift in Meursault’s speech. In the first journal entry, Meursault is introspective focusing more on his dreams and ambitions. When having to quit school, Meursault’s speech becomes more like in the novel, monotone, simplistic, and focusing on the world around him and how he feels at the present.
This could be from obstacles that differentiate black and white education, book smarts and street smarts, or just the idea that someone with a powerful education can not do everything. So where does society draw the line between and underpowered and overpowered education? As portrayed in A Lesson Before Dying, the answer to that isn’t an easy one to solve. Maybe society could go to such great lengths for everyone to have access to equal education. Even better yet, everyone as a whole can learn to accept the fact that everyone should be treated equally, no matter where someone is

The Humanitarian Award is an award given to people who put other people’s needs before theirs and does things for all of mankind. Albert Einstein is deserving of the Humanitarian Award because of his great contributions to the fields of science and technology. Albert Einstein was born in Wurttemberg, Germany.

This was the beginning of a fascination with the properties of light.
