On one side there are the people. Kotkin refers to them as the ‘civil society’, a group of people ‘imagining’ themselves as opposition when in fact they did not contribute anything to the fall of the Communist regimes. In contrast to this, he labels the other side as ‘uncivil society’, the Communist regimes. They were a society because they contained a social ranking, shared an ideology and lived the same lives. This is seen as more important because the fall occurred within the sphere of the governments.
It is a struggle for people not to be able to think freely. However, the Council in Anthem has forbidden individual thoughts. They worked to create a society where everyone is supposedly defined as equal. These rules cause Equality to believe he is evil for not being able to prevent his individual thoughts. Equality thinks he is a sinner for thinking outside of his
Eisenhower feared that communism would spread to other countries but countries cannot be considered “dominoes,” so the domino theory is false. The domino theory was then reintroduced during the Vietnam War and the Kennedy administration (“Vietnam War”). Many people see the domino theory as something entirely true. They think the theory is applicable because of the blood shed in Vietnam and its surrounding countries because of the spread of communism (Moïse). The American government saw Ho Chi Minh as one of the playing pieces in the game of communism.
While Truman, Eisenhower, and Kennedy all had the same same Cold War intention of ending communism, their ways of achieving their goal were different.The Cold War was an angry dispute between the United States and the Soviet Union about whether we should spread or contain communism (Ayres 817). According to Edward Ayres in American Anthem: Reconstruction to the Present all three Presidents used some form of Economic Aid, how we help other countries financially; Military Aid, how we help other countries’ militaries; and finally, Military Use, how we utilise our military (Ayres 817).
It is not good to be different from our brothers, but it is evil to be superior to them.” (Rand, 1961, pg. 21) This quote shows that the society is a communist society. This shows because during communist Russia the people were not allowed to be different. In the book Anthem it is exactly the same. No one in Anthem and Communist Russia was allowed to be creative or different.
Equality has a different potential from the rest of the people, as one, and this concerns the Council. When worked in a group, man is more limited to his actions since everybody has to agree, but alone, a man has no limits. Equality grew up to be independent, rather than dependent (what the Council wants) and he is considered evil. To try and level his thoughts, they make him a street sweeper so that he will underestimate himself and not try to do something
Equality does this by when he first falls in love with Liberty, he is obsessed. However, when his invention is rejected by the council, he starts to realize he doesn’t need to be in a group and in result, starts to love Liberty less. When he understand individuality fully, he becomes very selfish and doesn’t care for Liberty at all and thinks of her as an object. Equality felt he needed to be with a group and with Liberty. Through his journey he discovered that he doesn’t need to be with a group and can be independent.
The Giver Lois Lowry Hey, do you use your rights? The Giver by Lois Lowry is a book about a boy in a futuristic society who learns what his world was really like. When people think about the Giver they think of a very bad book because critics say that this book is bad and inappropriate but it 's really not. This book has a lot of very amazing moments that anyone can connect to. It has a moral lesson about that no one can keep any man or woman in a world with no pain or feelings because it 's not ethical.
From Mouffe’s and Laclau’s Marxist interpretation of populism, the communist regimes of the Cold War which had toppled down about a decade before they wrote their chapters, would probably be legitimate political systems. Those regimes were an extreme attempt to establish the rule of the “people”. Despite such populist features of communist regimes, Mouffe refuses to deal with populism other than right-wing populism, as discussed above. As a result, she would not give those communist regimes the negative label of populism. Likewise, Laclau would restrain from giving a negative label to those regimes, instead, he calls all forms of politics populistic (Laclau 2005, 47).
Picture a world where no politicians existed and everyone had equal power to do whatever the heart desired. Many people would agree that the world would be a better place due to the many negative stereotypes about the group, yet if one were to think hard the world would be in complete chaos without its leaders. It is so often that appearances and attitudes play a major role in how a person is distinguished and little consideration goes to getting to know that individual. The usage of stereotypes and misconceptions to make assumptions about a person has been going on for the longest time; this unfortunately gives the wrong perspective and puts people in categories in which they do not belong in. Moreover stereotypes and misconceptions are used
