When Equality presents his lightbox to the World Council of Scholars, they show that they are extremely against individual creativity. Despite the obvious genius of the invention, they completely disregard it. International 1-5537 tells Equality that, “‘What is not done collectively can not be good’” (73). The concept that individuality is evil is so deeply ingrained in the morality of the society that the World Council of Scholars, who should be the smartest people in the society, don’t realize how senseless it is to disregard the lightbox simply because it was created by an individual. The institutions in Anthem are so extremely devoted to altruism, that any idea of doing something for the benefit of oneself is considered morally wrong and unlawful.
When he goes to the World Council, he presents his box of light to them. The council unfortunately rejects it and orders his and the box’s destruction, they describe it “was evil” saying that “what is not down collectively cannot be good” (72). The box actually represents himself, not only that but it is an extension of Equality and so we can see that the Council, and the society, have rejected him, called him evil and that he cannot be good. His sense of self is so high that he won’t allow them to oppress him any longer and breaks out through the window. Later he decides to free the world of collectivism by conquering it and destroying collectivism (104).
He said “They threw out the priests. And then Bokonon, cynically and playfully, invented a new religion.” (Vonnegut 172) Castle also said “Well, when it became evident that no governmental or economic reform was going to make the people much less miserable, the religion became the one real instrument of hope. Truth was the enemy of the people, because the truth was so terrible. so Bokonon made it his business to provide the people with better and better lies.” (Vonnegut
The mystery behind Anastasia Nicholaievna Romanov’s death is summed up in two theories: The Bolsheviks Killed her and her family and her family was being executed and she escaped. To begin with, until theorist find out what happened, an execution turning into an escape, theorist are contemplation on the mystery of Anastasia Romanov. Civil war broke in Russia June 1918, and in July Anti- Bolshevik “white” Russian forces advanced on Yekaterinburg, when Nicholas, Czar leader, and his family were located (July 16 1918: Romanov Family Executed 2). Clearly, Revolution broke out on the streets of Petrograd (now St. Petersburg) and Nicholas was forced to abdicate his throne later that month in March 1917. Late on the night of July 16; Nicholas,
However, he fails to realize that collectivism still exists outside his tunnel of intellectual and individualistic refuge. Thus, the council is horrified by his invention using personal thought and they mock and ridicule him, even threatening to burn him at the stake. One member of the council, International 1-5537, points out the major issue with Equality’s invention, saying “what is not done collectively cannot be good” (Anthem 73). The Council fails to understand the basic idea that Rand proposes in “The Soul of an Individualist” in which she says that “no work is ever done collectively, by a major decision. Every creative job is achieved under the guidance of a single individual thought” (Rand).
Joseph Stalin, 1878-1953, established totalitarianism in Russia, and forever changed the nation. He used police force to gain power, and instilled fear in all of his followers. This reign of terror was known as the Blood Purges or the Great Terror. During the Blood Purges, Stalin blamed Russian citizens for crimes he committed, and imposed the worst of punishments on them. Death or being sent to a labor camp, such as Gulag, was the fate of most.
Likely, this also shown the principles in Waknuk have blinded the people terribly, people always think it is the punishment from God toward them but actually it is not. People in Waknuk are punished each other as well as from the belief spills of the “Old People” have left, however, these principles made the Waknuk society fall. Therefore, people in Waknuk should have acceptance to deviation and mutant people rather than send to the Fringes or kill them because they could lose talented people that could rise their
Santiago Posso Mr.linton English 11-A October/4/2017 Hypocrisy is the act of criticizing something only to become what we once disapproved, Trump 's bigotry over Obama 's administration and Stalin blasting capitalism for overworking men only to enslave his own men and exploit them, high school kids who say they hate the popular only to join their group the first chance they get, these are only a few examples where this verb is shown throughout history. This type of mockery then is a tricky situation because one day we can develop into what we hated most. Huxley observes how dreadful this action is seen in the real world and portrays how atrocious it looks in the novel A Brave New World In the story A Brave New World, Aldous Huxley tries
The king is uncivilized because of his arbitrary and barbaric justice system and his lack of government in his kingdom. The king demonstrates his cruelness by having an unfair justice system because it does not truly tell whether the accused is guilty or innocent and it is used more for entertainment than for justice. For Example, the justice system is used to entertain the people and the king. On page 269 the narrator explains “The institution was a very popular one. When the people gathered together on one of the great trial days, they never knew whether they were to witness a bloody slaughter or a hilarious wedding.” This quote exhibits how the justice system is used for entertainment because of the joy and sorrow a person gets from coming to the arena to watch a man choose his fate.
n. In the book, Fahrenheit 451 written by Ray Bradbury, there was evidence that Beatty was persuading and terrorizing his fellow firemen and society because of the power in his hands. Although, He was educated by reading books, Beatty was not justified for hiding the truth about censorship because he kept society from thinking, used his power for evil instead for good and sent fear throughout society.
