They are not allowed to have individual thoughts about anything what so ever. This shows that Ayn Rand believes that if you follow others and not lead yourself or what you believe. Instead of being a leader bad things will happen. Which brings me to the conclusion. These are the reasons why “Anthem” is a dystopia theme.
Ayn Rand’s Anthem starts by Equality 7-2521 saying “It is a sin to write this.” Throughout the story, Equality’s views and mindset changes, he realizes that he is different from his brothers and its ok to be different. He discovers that if something is legal it is not certainly right. His eager for knowledge taught him the word “I” abandoning the word “We”. This made Equality find out who he is and gave him the chance to be an individual. Equality’s views and mindset changes through out the book.

The quote is not portraying people as heroes all the time. No one wanted to be the bearer of bad news, or had “nerve enough” which is relatable, but the way it’s presented is very different. Because Maycomb is such a small town, any rabble rousing would not be tolerated, but the boy was Arthur Radley’s and no one wanted to upset Mr. Radley. Later on, after Scout invites Walter Cunningham over for lunch, she comments on Walter’s excessive use of syrup and calls him out. An enraged Calpurnia summons her to the kitchen and says, “There’s some folks who don’t eat like us,’ she whispered fiercely, ‘but you ain’t called on to contradict ‘em at the table when they don’t.
This is a fitting category for the novel as it imparts many lessons. Among these valuable lessons, perhaps the most significant is the final sentence which suggests that "nothing like that could ever happen again. Not in this day and age." It forces readers to confront the grim reality that hatred, discrimination, and intolerance remain potent forces in the world. Readers consequently consider their own prejudices and actions, perhaps wondering if they have been guilty of mistreating others.
When he firsts came back “ he did not want to talk about the War at all” (1). However, “later he felt the need to talk but no one wanted to hear about it” (1). Much like Norman Bowker, Krebs came home feeling confused about everything around him, such as how the girls have grown up and he did not feeling like chasing after them.

Wasn’t cautious about some of the prophecies the witches said because they didn’t sound realistic huge mistake which cause his death. Fighting back what couldn’t be changed was Macbeth hugest mistake. accepting the good parts of his destiny was easy for Macbeth so he was laid back with it.

In which Nick says, “ He looked at me sideways-and I knew why Jordan Baker believed he was lying.” Playing more into the fact that Gatsby is obsessed with keeping his true identity hidden by constantly talking and reassuring people that he is who he says he is. Since Gatsby is so insecure about his lie it is obvious to see his nerves and tell that he in fact is lying. Going to show that lies and deceit can only go on for so long before the pressure begins to make the lie crumble and fall apart. To conclude, many quotes throughout “The Great Gatsby” illustrate themes of lies and deceits through dialogue and their actions that they do. While these themes illustrate who these characters are as people but also summarizing overall themes of the book at the same time.
