The idea behind the song Little Boxes by Malvina Reynolds is similar to the underlying principle of restricted individuality in Harrison Bergeron. The song criticizes society’s conformity after World War 2 and during the Cold War. All the houses are the same, the education system stamps out individuality creating “cookie cutter” workers, and the cycle of conforming the societal standards repeats. This is similar to Harrison Bergeron because the Handicapper General is trying the make the whole society equal in appearance and talent and restricts individuality. The whole population in the short story is filled with “cookie cutter” people who all act the same, think the same, and feel the same. Both sources point out that society is implementing a false sense of perfection for it’s citizens and restricting the flow of new ideas.
