The two best choices that support the interpretation that "Harrison Bergeron" represents a society in which efforts at equality have destroyed personal freedom are:
"All this equality was due to ... the unceasing vigilance of agents of the United States Handicapper General."
"The realization was blasted from his mind instantly by the sound of an automobile collision in his head."
"Harrison Bergeron" is a short story by author Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. The setting is the year of 2081, when equality has finally been achieved by the American government. No one feels inferior, ugly, or stupid. But that came at a very high cost.
<u>People who are born with physical or intellectual advantages are forced by the Handicapper General to wear handicaps that will make them average like everyone else. The more advantages a person has, the more handicaps he has to wear. If a person is tall and athletic, he must wear weights and gears to slow him down. If he is intelligent, he must wear a type of radio in his ear that emits sounds that prevent him from thinking.</u>
<u>As we can see, society in this dystopian world has lost its sense of freedom in pursuit of equality. People are no longer allowed to be themselves. They are not allowed to feel clever, deft, or beautiful because that would mean others would feel dumb, clumsy, or repulsive.</u>
