Cornelia Dontu Hill 2nd period The theme of Harrison Bergeron is equality means letting people reach their full potential, yet sameness hinders an individual’s potential to grow.
Because we are both equal, that must mean we both have the same potential, same interests, and same personalities… right?!
Oh no, you are wrong dear. What you are talking about is sameness, which does not make us equal at all.
What equal means is that I have the rights to express my full potential as anybody else does. I am no better than someone else because we are equal, but that does not mean that we must be all the same.
Oh alright! I think I understand; for example, I have the rights to go, study, and become the best doctor in the world while you are allowed to go and become the best artist you want to be. This makes us equal because we both are allowed to grow to our full potential without trying to make us the same person.
Yes! You got it. If we were the same, we would have no room to grow and become who we want to be in this world. If we were the same, you and me would have no chance in expressing ourselves to the fullest.
