            Some believe that history is a cycle. A few thing that happened in the past will happen again over the years. For example after WW1 some years passed, and WW2 happened.  In the book Anthem written by Ayn Rand, it shows a world in which the government is controlling the  society. A world in which there is someone with absolute power; a dictator.  In the world we already had dictators. Such as King Herodes Hitler, Mao Zedong, Josef Stalin and others.  In this case, it is the government that have absolute power and benefit themselves.

  The Protagonist Equality 7-2521 in the book Anthem runs away from the society and explores the unknown World. Equality 7-2521 lives in a society in which the government has absolute power. This remains me of a dictator.  A dictator is someone one that has absolute authorities. Dictators have been spread all around the world since many years.  For example Hitler, he was a dictator since 1933. Mao Zedong was a dictator since 1893,  and Kim Jong Un that is a dictator still present.  The book Giver also remands me of dictator regime. In Anthem,  the governments have all the power. They decide what job you have, what you have to do, and who you are going to work with.  This society reminds me of a boarded society . The people can`t leave, no one can enter, and everyone has to follow the dictator. This is caused because of power. Everyone wants more power, and the ones with all the power want to stay with it for ever. Causing death, violence, and the collapse of a society. That is why Equality 7-2521 ran away from  his society. Chapter 7 says, " It is dark here in the forest." As you can see Equality ran from his society, he didn`t want to be controlled like a puppet, he wanted to be free.  Power is destruction,  those that contain it to much, will be drown into the deep of a black hole.

The book Anthem also reminds me of a protest. Equality 7-2521 runs to the forest because he knew he was in a bad position.  So he stopped doing what he normally did and ran. Protest are almost the same thing. When someone is in a bad position, people try to go against the government, and try to fix what is wrong.  People do what they believe is right.  Protest happen all around the world. For example, a protest occurred recently in Brazil. Teachers protested in  Parana  against pension cuts. In the United States the people also protested about the death of a black man by the white police. Protests overall are a way to make your voices heard.  Better days can come if voices can be heard throughout your society.  This pictures were chosen to show how protest can lead to better days.
