THEME FOR SEPTEMBER
“Harrison Bergeron” by Kurt Vonnegut, Jr.
“Harrison Bergeron” is a satirical and dystopian science-fiction short story written by Kurt Vonnegut and first published in October 1961. Originally published in “The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction” the story was republished in the author’s “Welcome to the Monkey House” collection in 1968.
The story has been interpreted as a satire to offer a critique on people’s claims that we should all be equal. It has been embraced by those critical of egalitarianism as an allegory of caution against socially enforced equality, more specifically the dangers of enforcing equality by virtue of leveling.
