Citizens Deserve To Be In Control!

Government is too forcing!!

Thesis Statement

The citizens should make the majority of the laws in their community because no one should be forced to do anything they want.

" Harrison Bergeron" by Kurt Vonnegut and "The Lottery" by Shirley Jackson exhibit the limits of government and tradition in society.

“HARRISION BEREGON” AND “THE LOTTERY”, both text involves the government controlling the town. Harrison was forced to look “average” or exactly like others in his b/c he was handsome and built. “The Lottery” forced families to turn on each other by making and by picking one person to be murdered. "Harrision Bergeron" forced everyone to be alike by making pretty women and/ or handsome men where ugly mask, smart people had a transmitter, and if fit they had to where layers of clothing.

Quotes/ Analysis

Quote: "All of a sudden you look so tired," said Hazel. "Why don't you stretch out on the sofa, so's you can rest your handicap bag on the pillows, honeybunch." She was referring to the forty-seven pounds of birdshot in a canvas bag, which was padlocked around George's neck. "Go on and rest the bag for a little while," she said. "I don't care if you're not equal to me for a while."

George weighed the bag with his hands. "I don't mind it," he said. "I don't notice it any more. It's just a part of me." (Vonnegut 2).

Analysis: Harrison mother hazel told him she didn’t mind if he took a couple of layers off and looked different for while sleeping. But he didn’t mind since he was already used to wearing all 47 bags of birdshot in the canvas bags.

Quotes/ Analysis

Quote: “ Tessie Hutchinson was in the center of a cleared space by now, and she held her hands out desperately as the villagers moved in on her. "It isn't fair," she said. A stone hit her on the side of the head. Old Man Warner was saying, "Come on, come on, everyone." Steve Adams was in the front of the crowd of villagers, with Mrs. Graves beside him. "It isn't fair, it isn't right," Mrs. Hutchinson screamed, and then they were upon her.” (Jackson 7).

Analysis: Tessie didn’t have any problem name picking until her was pulled. Reason she had no problem with the name picking was one it was tradition and two her name was not being picked. She was stoned to death by everyone including her kids and her husband.
