with this article it is stated that we get to choose in our country whether we have "a democracy" or what currently is in place which is "great wealth concentrated in the hands of a few, but we can't have both". with the current state of america we have the very few with more money than all of the rest combined. in Kurt Vonnegut's Harrison Bergeron, Harrison has been displayed as a superior specimen to the world and in this world it is a bad thing to be better than the majority. Harrison and his accomplice are "dead before they hit the floor"(4) simply for removing the constraints to force them, to be equal. in america we are living in the unequal society with no handicaps in place. the life we are living has no checks and balances to prevent these "inequalities" leaving the rich ahead and the rest far far behind. america is showing even without constraints we are still living in the dystopian world of inequality while Harrison Bergeron is showing us that constraints can go to far.
