The Fight to Rule The Land

Citizens and people must fight to have rights

Thesis Statement

I believe that citizens and people should be allowed to control the land as a community to create laws due to the many disadvantages that the government forces on people.

"Harrison Bergeron" by Kurt Vonnegut and "Most Dangerous Game" by Richard Connell displays the limited freedom of citizens and people from the government

In “Harrison Bergeron” and “Most Dangerous Game”, both stories tell about a government that citizens or people don’t agree with and fight to survive. Harrison went against the government that made him have on handicaps and change his physical appearance to be equal to everybody. Meanwhile in the “Most Dangerous Game” Rainsford must fight and survive against the leader or government in order to stay alive during the hunt.

Quote & Analysis For "Harrison Bergeron"


  • “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).
  • This quote helps support my thesis because it talks about how the government made certain rules/laws to limit people’s power. Making talented or different people too many disadvantages in order for everyone to be equal in the country.

Quote & Analysis For "The Most Dangerous Game"

  • “So many Americans appear to have had. I'll wager you'll forget your notions when you go hunting with me. You've a genuine new thrill in store for you, Mr. Rainsford”
  • This quote helps supports my thesis because the leader/ruler is controlling a certain group or person to do something. Since the citizens are being forced they have no other choice than to follow the commands given.

Conclusion

I believe that citizens and people should be allowed to control the land as a community to create laws due to the many disadvantages that the government forces on people. For this upcoming election some good points is lower college tuition. Another point that is most important to me is higher pay, the final important thing to me is also cut paying taxes for the middle class. Some things that scare me is trump wanting to deport many people which will make families fall apart and break.
