In “Harrison Bergeron” and in North Korea, the point of having one leader or dictator controlling everyone and everything is emphasized. In North Korea, the people are controlled and have limited freedom due to the leader. In the history of North Korea, “supreme leader Kim Il-sung focused on promoting a personality culture around himself”. In “Harrison Bergeron”, it is the handicap general that controls all thoughts and actions of people. The whole society is in the hands of “the unceasing vigilance of agents of the United States Handicapper General”. The control of the government in both these situations is dangerous for the people. They are taught that this is the right way to live and are in the illusion that they live in a utopia. It is important to pay attention to these things in society so the whole world doesn’t fall into this way of living. People have the right to be good at things, to talk to other people, and to have their own thoughts. When a government controls this, it takes away everyone’s individuality.
