Citizens Need New Laws

Citizens will create laws

Thesis Statement

Citizens should be able to create rules by demonstrating getting rid of tradition and by creating diversity for their own community.

Summary

In “Harrison Bergeron” and “The Lottery”, bring tradition and laws that should eradicated. Harrison should have been allowed freedom because of the way he existed and in “The Lottery”, a person should not be killed once a year because it would decrease the number of population in their community and that could affect the way a community is being kept.

Quote Analysis

Quote: “The people of the village began to gather… between the post office and the bank, around ten o'clock; in some towns there were so many people that the lottery took two days and had to be started on June 2th.” (Jackson, 1)

Analysis: At this time they are being gathered there for the lottery. If citizens made laws they wouldn’t agree to kill a person once a year.


Quote: "Two years in prison and two thousand dollars fine for every ball I took out," said George. "I don't call that a bargain." (Vonnegut, 2)

Analysis: Harrison was taken to jail for being different and gave at that time an outrageous unpayable bail. If the government wouldn’t have sent him to jail then he wouldn’t of have tried to over throw them. If citizens had a say so in laws then it wouldn’t be a broken law to be different.

Conclusion

Citizens should be able to create rules by demonstrating getting rid of tradition and by creating diversity for their own community. I feel that Trump shouldn't be elected because he has said some crazy things, like immigrants have to be moved back to their original location. Personally if I could vote myself I would vote for Bernie Sanders because he has viewed some awesome things for the upcoming future, like going to college should be free.
