Gigi Mancusi - Anthem - Line Illuminator

Book: Anthem
Author: Ayn Rand
Week #1: Line Illuminator
Reading: Part 1 & 2

 "There is evil in your bones, Equality 7-2521, for your body has grown beyond the bodies of your brothers." But we cannot change our bones nor our body.
(Part 1)

I predict that in the community that Equality 7-2521 lives in is a community where everything is controlled. Since from the quote I read it says that he is much taller than his brothers, and there is evil inside his bones, then he is an unusual person. This is important, because this shows that the society is afraid of changes,  since everything is controlled by other people. This also shows that people are afraid of him, since he is different from everyone else. I also predict that people might be afraid of him, because he might do something against the city, destroy everything, or even kill other people.


"Dare not choose in your minds the work you would like to do when you leave the Home of Students. You shall do that which the Council of Vocations shall prescribe for you."

(Part 1) 

As I mentioned before, I predicted that the community that Equality 7-2521 lives in is controlled by other people, and I was correct. The city that he lives in decides everything, what they think, their jobs, and even the school that they go to. I observe so far in the book that you can't make our own decisions, because the Council of Vocations is afraid that someone might do something to he city, and they will ruin their whole system, so by preventing this "disaster" to happen, they are in charge of everything that is inside their society.
