Using Kurt Vonnegut Jr.’s “Harrison Bergeron” as the source to cite, write a five-paragraph essay in response to: The future depicted in this short story is one where universal equality is said to have been finally achieved. Would you, based on the characters in the short story, consider this society truly equal? What is your definition of equality based upon today’s society in comparison to the one in Vonnegut’s version of the future? Would you also go so far as to say that those in power, like the Handicapper General, are corrupt in that they do not seem to be handicapped themselves? Form your thesis statement, find three citations (remember, one per supporting paragraph), and argue your point.
