Harrison Bergeron Eye of the Beholder 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 dueto...the unceasing vigilance of agents of the United StatesHandicapper General. Fear of punishment from the law Defying the government'srules "You been so tired lately-kind of wore out," said Hazel. "If there was just some way we could make a little hole in the bottom of the bag, and just take out a few of them lead balls. Just a few.""Two years in prison and two thousand dollars fine for every ball I took out," said George. "I don't call that a bargain." Oh, you mean segregated! You mean imprisoned, don't you, doctor? You're talking about a ghetto, aren't you? A ghetto designed for freaks! ...If i'm still terribly ugly well, is there any other alternative?” "Even as I stand here" he bellowed, "crippled, hobbled, sickened - I am a greater ruler than any man who ever lived! Now watch me become what I can become!"Harrison tore the straps of his handicap harness like wet tissue paper, tore straps guaranteed to support five thousand pounds. Harrison's scrap-iron handicaps crashed to the floor. Disabling people from reaching their full potential "Why, nurse? Why shouldn't people be allowed to be different? Why?" "Doctor, careful.What you're talking is treason". "Now, one of the alternatives just in the event that this last treatment is not successful, is simply to allow you to move into a special area in which people of your kind have been congregated.""People of my kind? Congregated.""Oh, you mean segregated! You mean imprisoned, don't you, doctor? You're talking about a ghetto, aren't you? A ghetto designed for freaks!" In both societies, government is striving to make all people equal. In spite of this, some people in these societies want to resist this equality. Only a few are brave enough to actually revolt against the government, but these rebels never got too far in their endeavors. Harrison Bergeron was shot and killed and Ms. Tyler was brought to a ghetto for people of her kind. Most other citizens will not revolt because of the government's threat to punish them. George wanted to relieve some of the weight on his shoulders, but hed go to jail. Ms. Tyler wanted to not have to go to the ghetto, but she may die otherwise. The government over reached to make sure everyone in society would be equal. The Handicapper General makes sure every person has the proper handicaps to make society equal, and in Eye of the Beholder people need to all look the same otherwise they get sent to a ghetto with other people of their kind. In the future total equality exists, but not everyone agrees with it.
