Citizens Have Rights

We have rights!

Thesis Statement

Citizens should be a loud to have more say in the government by help making new laws or take away old ones because the government needs incite from citizens.

In "Harrison Bergeron" by Kurt Vonnegut And "The Lottery" by Shirley Jackson Limits societies choices.

In “Harrison Bergeron” and “The Lottery” both stories are alike because they both have a different interpretation on killing people as a means of keeping the government. Harrison went against the government and by doing that he was killed to show what would happen if anyone went against them but in “The lottery” they choose from a box who dies but when Mrs. Harrison got picked was when she wanted to go against the government.

"The Lottery"

Quote: “"It isn't fair," she said. A stone hit her on the side of the head. Old Man Warner was saying, "Come on, come on, everyone." Steve Adams was in the front of the crowd of villagers, with Mrs. Graves beside him.”

Analysis: This quote shows that the governing body will kill people if they just get something pulled out of a box and it supports my thesis because the government has control over life or death of the citizens.

"Harrison Bergeron"

Quote:” It was then that Diana Moon Glampers, the Handicapper General, came into the studio with a double-barreled ten-gauge shotgun. She fired twice, and the Emperor and the Empress were dead before they hit the floor.” (Vonnegut 5)

Analysis: This quote shows that if they try to be their own person they will get killed.

Citizens should be allowed to have more say in the government and the government should have anymore power than it already has because it uses it for personal gain. My worst fear of the election is that if Donald Trump wins he might start world war 3 with Russia and cost us thousands of lives. For an important point to remember is that Hilary Clinton used a private email to discuss things with an older candidate.
