Citizen Ability Of Have Equality

Everyone Has The Ability To Be Equal

Thesis Statement

· The citizens should have an ability in their own choices without the government a province to do anything and have the ability to have equality in their community without the chance of death.

From “Harrison Bergeron” by Kurt Vonnegut and ‘The Lottery” by Shirley Jackson

both these texts has someone had been against/rebelling the government but ultimately get killed. In “Harrison Bergeron” Harrison wanted to take out all the power from the governor but ultimately get killed. In “The Lottery” Tessie wasn’t initially rebelling but once she knew that her death is coming she was against the government or in their case the villager but no one wanted to also rebel because it can be for their possible death and decide her best ditch effort she died.

Quote/Analysis "Harrison Bergeron"

“They were equal every which way. Nobody was smarter than anybody else. Nobody was better looking than anybody else. Nobody was stronger or quicker than anybody else. All this equality was due to the 211th, 212th, and 213th Amendments to the Constitution, and to the unceasing vigilance of agents of the United States Handicapper General” (Vonnegut 1).

These Amendment were made in 2081 where the government had made the Society of the US that supposedly make them all equal all to their knowledge that this has made them less equal with the people who are above average making them feel less equal then the government anticipated.

Quote/Analysis "The Lottery"

’You didn't give him time enough to take any paper he wanted. I saw you. It wasn't fair!’" (Vonnegut 5).

In the Lottery by Shirley Jackson This quote support my thesis because Tessie never had the ability to defend for herself to her death and no one wanted to help her from the chances their might die and is not the equal way on how everyone had a chance of dying.


The Government should not be in control of people lives and the people should have the ability to have the freedom of speech that make a difference that cant be conclude to death. With the upcoming election I am more unsure with people that want a business man as a president that the only few good things about him being president is a plus that Donald trump is a billionaire. Another one is that he can also that he can be in charge since he is a business man in a sort of way to help however Donald Trump downfalls that make me uncertain that he insult people, his racial remarks, and he have no real plan to stop world problems that not be include money like control oil.
