Dystopian Societies are driven by governments whose purpose is to create similarity and obedience in all of their citizens. Both of the stories, Anthem and Harrison, have similar governments with the same goals. The governments in both stories want the same type of community, with no individuals. Each person is expected to be the same as the one before. The government in Anthem built their community around a saying, “There are no men but the great we” (Rand 91).
Vesalius possessed traits of a typical Renaissance and had a good attitude towards trying out and experimenting. He was always striving for excellence and was critical, “constantly telling his students to check their work every time and even his [own] as his could contain a slight mistake as well [Source 9]” This evidence shows Vesalius’ was always striving for perfection and did not allow a single mistake. Vesalius was a physical evidence based scientist as he “held the belief that the study of human anatomy should be based on visible proof gained from dissecting human bodies. [Source 5]” Vesalius himself quoted, “Aristotle and many others say men have more teeth than women; it is no harder for anyone to test this than it is for me to say it is false, since no one is prevented from counting teeth. [Source 2]” These sources indicate Vesalius likes to experience experiments by hand to prove something in a practical way not theoretically.
He thinks that everyone needs to be the same, do the same things and not do anything different than what you are ‘supposed’ to be doing. The people in the book move too fast and don’t pay attention to the little things in life that turn out to be some of the most important things. "We must all be alike. Not everyone born free and equal, as the Constitution says, but everyone made equal. Each man the image of
Equality is such an important thing in our everyday lives. Every person is born to be different. No one is exactly like another human on this planet. Our society thrives off of each person being unique from everyone else, but still being treated equally. In Ayn Rand’s novella Anthem, we are introduced to this society that has fallen back into the times of the Great Rebirth.
Keating was a true free thinker, he pushed his students to think for themselves. In addition to his progressive nature, Keating did not have an issue defying against authority figures; when he felt he wasn’t able to be his true self, he said what he believed and didn’t let anybody halt or sway him. Lastly, Keating treasured nature and being in the outdoors. Because of his numerous open-minded qualities, it is apparent that Professor Keating, or “Captain” as his students chose to call him, was a tremendously transcendental character. Open mindedness is a monumentally influential element of modern society.
This is important because it shows how he was intelligent enough to disregard that everyone thought something was right, and still be able to prove them wrong. This shows how intelligent Albert Einstein was and how it lead him to be incredibly
(Nelson, Kadir) For a kid to leave one’s family to prolong their education, it definitely takes a lot of nerve. As a result, Nelson Mandela certainly showed great gallantry in the process of working towards his dreams and building himself a bright future. Therefore, courageousness was clearly a trait that Mandela possesses, and it was surely a specialty of him in which he uses as an advantage to solve strenuous problems that he came across. Socrates was no different when it comes to his intrepidity. He was an unbelievably valorous individual, and was the only few who weren’t afraid of death.
We then learn that teenagers were placed in the Glade against their own will, their daily lives are constantly surveyed by the “creators”. They had no recollection of their past and have no communication with the outside world. They were required to sustain and build their own society. They cannot leave the Glade and have to find ways to escape. Every move they make are surveyed by the creators to monitor their brain patterns.
Utopia...Yeah Right Lois Lowry's, The Giver uses a dystopian society as a metaphor to show how he lives without pain and lacks knowledge of other places in order to give the reader a warning that the society will never be perfect. The difference between a utopian and a dystopian is often used for the difference of how a society wants it to be, and how it actually is. The Giver is dystopian because they get their memories erased, they are all equal, and they get assigned jobs when they are 12. In The Giver, they erase their memories of anything like snow, hills, and color. The Giver explains the color red to Jonas, stating, “you’re beginning to see the color red” (94).
The Teacher’s would constantly remind him of how the evil was in him, all for being taller than his brothers. When you would think badly you were forced to repeat “We are one in all and all in one. There are no men but only the great WE, One, indivisible and forever” (Rand 19). Everyone was taught to love and cherish their brothers because they were made as one and were all equal. Even though Equality knew he was different, he tried
Living in America run by men, having no voice and no say. We are made to be silent and tend to our masters. The fifteenth amendment gave a right to all men, why are women still viewed as less than. come together and have a voice, fighting for a life woman yearn for. We birth them all, only to be told we 'll never be equivalent.
30 October 2015 Anthem Society V.S. United States Society Imagine living in a society where people had to live on a routine and do everything exactly the same each and every day, having no rights, not being able to bond with each other, just one big schedule. In Anthem, written by Ayn Rand, is a story about a young boy named Equality 72521 who is different than the others in his society.

There are several ways to explain how the United States society is different than the society in Anthem ; modernday U.S. society is much more progressive than Anthems society because of ,marriage,individuality,
People saw things the same because their eyes had been made to see only in black and white. Once Jonas receives memories from the Giver of past experiences and memories from the time before him, he notices that his community is wrong about how to live life because of this, he goes to a high extent and leaves his community. Life in the book, The Giver, is a communistic government because everything is the same, there is no diversity, and the citizens have no choice because the government makes
