The Gov't Should Have Less Power
The government can abuse this power
Quote/Analysis "Harrison Bergeron"
Analysis: This quote supports my viewpoint because it shows when Harrison stood up to the government. He was trying to overthrow the Government because he did not like what they were doing. All the other people refused to do anything but they did whatever they told them to do. If the people did something the general wouldn’t have to kill him. No one ever tried to stand up, the all followed directions without questioning it. If they did stand up they would all be free and be who they really are.
Quote/Analysis "The Lottery"
Analysis: This quote supports my viewpoint because it shows that people don't like certain rules and the way things are done. When they try to stand up and say something they can't because no one is willing to cooperate. If everyone in the village would have taken a stance and demanded they stop the tradition it probably would have ended. Tessie would not have been stoned to death like she did if everyone joined forces.
Harrison Bergeron in "Harrison Bergeron"
Harrison was unique, but the government wanted everybody to be equal, so they made him wear glasses to damage his vision, earphone to distort his thinking, throw him in jail etc. But when he escapes from jail, he is utterly convinced that he will succeed in overthrowing the government and show off his true talent.
