Quote and Analysis
Quote: “They were equal every which way. Nobody was smarter than anybody else. Nobody was better looking than anybody else. Nobody was stronger or quicker than anybody else. All this equality was due to the 211th, 212th, and 213th Amendments to the Constitution[DC1] ” (Vonnegut 1).
Analysis: Everyone was equal because the government has made laws for all to be the same[DC2] . Having everyone the exact same would leave no reason for hard work.
Quote: "It isn't fair, it isn't right," Mrs. Hutchinson screamed” (Jackson 7[DC1] ).
Analysis: the tradition of this town is to kill or stone the “winner” of the lottery[DC2] . This shows how unfair traditions could be.
