Governments Right to Rule
Collaboration through government control
“Harrison Bergeron” by Kurt Vonnegut and “Most Dangerous Game” by Richard Connell reveals the governments control on the people.
In “Most dangerous game” and “Harrison Bergeron”, they both had rules for the place they were in. In Harrison Bergeron, everyone was basically equal and had to follow certain rules. In Most Dangerous Game, Zaroff has his island and makes his own rules. With government control, everything will be organized and almost equal. Everyone will have to follow the same rules as each other.
In Harrison Bergeron, it says, “THE YEAR WAS 2081, and everybody was finally equal. They weren't only equal before God and the law. They were equal every which way” (Vonnegut 1). This shows how everyone was treated the same. In Most Dangerous game, it says, "It is a very great pleasure and honor to welcome Mr. Sanger Rainsford, the celebrated hunter, to my home” (Connell 4). This proves that the island belongs to Zaroff and he can make his own rules because it’s his home.
Zaroff started hunting at an early age after he shot his fathers prized turkey. He liked to hunt big game so he bought an island and built a house on it. There he does his hunting. But then he started to hunt men.
Harrison is a 14 year old boy who is 7 feet tall and super strong. The government put huge earphones on him to distort his thinking, glasses to damage his sight and also give him headaches, and 300 pound weights to weigh him down. The government also tried to put him in jail, but he escaped. He now wants to overthrow the government.
Government should be in control
My opinion on the election is that i think Donald Trump is a horrible candidate because of all things he wants to accomplish. In my opinion, i want Clinton to win because i think it will be interesting having a female president for the first time.
