In “Anthem”, by Ayn Rand, Equality 7-2521 is completely unaware that the Council he trusts is actually plotting against him to maintain control of the society, but comes to realize the truth about his society as he questions its morals and eventually runs away to make his own path. This leads to his ultimate realization that his society is completely and totally evil. He weeps when he discovers the word “I”. He had been searching for a word that could suffice for that meaning, but never found it until he ran away from the society to discovery it. The society in Anthem was morally wrong for a handful of reasons.
The Muselmanner died from things that they couldn't fix, but other people could. If people cared about what was going on in Germany, many would fight against them.

The creature said that “ But in the detail which he gave you of them he could not sum up the hours and months of misery which I endured, wasting in impotent passions. For while I destroyed his hopes, I did not satisfy my own desires. They were forever ardent and craving; still I desired love and fellowship, and I was still spurned.” Victor destroyed the one thing that could have given the creature happiness.

Levi stated “To destroy a man is difficult, almost as difficult as to create one: it has not been easy, nor quick” (If this is a Man, 156). It is still hard to define exactly what humanity is and what it means to lose humanity, because humanity is defined by the person and only the person can understand when they lost oneself. In many cases it is too late when they discover this, such of that of the dying SS soldier. But for others they may once again gain it back, such as that of the prisoners or even the SS soldier realizing over a year later the crime he committed was unmoral and inhumane. However, no matter if a person loses their humanity forever, or they gain it back eventually, that person will never be the same.

His anger eventually leads himself to crazy conclusions and ultimately the death of his best friend.
Along with the way that Huck treated Jim, Twain made him sound like an unintelligent thing, not a human being but just a thing. There were many problems that Jim faced with Huck and one is specifically pointed out as the reason The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn was a racist tale and not one that started to show racial tolerance.

Huck instead of stopping Tom from doing this plan asks him why they should do a complicated plan that might hurt Jim and then decides to revert back to his old self and toy with Jim. After all the morale improvements that Huck has made in the end Jim is still being toyed with instead of treated like the free human being he was.

This affected David a lot when Rosie died as she was the only person left in his life. The discrimination of the castle people ruined this family because Jack thought that his son marrying a castle women “is dirtying the family name” (245). Even after Jack and Rosie became close David disliked his father and didn’t want to be around him (246). This shows how even when the discrimination is gone it stays inside people and they cannot forgive the people that
