In anthem this is shown when the elders say to the main character “ how dared you, gutter sweeper (...) to hold yourself as one alone and with the thoughts of the one and not of the many” The irony that is shown by this is how the elders who are supposed to help all and have all help others but they reject the idea that he had to help the collective group. While in the Harrison Bergeron society the fear of going against the group makes them think bad stuff could happen like “if I tried to get away with it (...) then other people’d get away with it-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?” this society has them thinking that if they go against the greater good in any way that everything will go wrong. Yet there are people who still do it showing how it doesn't work. In both situations whether it's a big help for all or a small help for one they don’t except that help.

In “The Lottery” by Shirley Jackson, the author comments on the faults of tradition in modern society. She asserts that certain traditions, even though they are obsolete and no longer serve any purpose, have become so widely accepted that people fail to see the problems in them.
