Thesis Statment:

"Harrison Bergeron" by Kurt Vonnegut "The Lottery" by Shirley Jackson

In “Harrison Bergeron” and “The Lottery”, both texts hold traditions and laws put into force. Harrison was going against the government for not agreeing in laws put into place to make everyone equal. The villagers participated in a tradition of killing one member of the community a year.

Quote and Analysis: “They were burdened with sashweights and bags of birdshot, and their faces were masked, so that no one, seeing a free and graceful gesture or a pretty face (…)” (Vonnegut 1).

Harrison Burgeon

This quote supports my thesis because citizens are being forced to wear handicaps to make everyone else equal. The citizens had no say in these laws being placed, they are forced to wear them and if they don’t they go to jail. They should have a voice in what should happen with equality because it will affect everyone in the community.

Quote and Analysis: : “’Some places have already quit lotteries’” (Jackson 4).

The Lottery

This quote supports my thesis because some of the villages have realized that the lottery is wrong because people are being killed. The village continues this tradition because they believe it is right and it has been done for so long that they think the lottery has to be done. If other villages have realized they have a choice to not do the lottery because it is horribly wrong others should realize it to. This is so horrible because they choose an innocent person to die and b stoned to death by family and friends for new reason.

Communities will be better and stronger if everyone has a voice in law adoption and government was not allowed to have control on every aspect of citizens lives. In the upcoming election the most important points me are a better education system and women's rights Some things that scare me about the upcoming election is a candidate may be picked that is dishonest and may make things worse then are already are.
