In Ayn Rand's Anthem and George Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-Four it shows how ignorance can be more or just as powerful as knowledge. In Anthem it shows exactly how powerful knowledge can be. On the other hand, in Nineteen Eighty-Four it shows how sometimes it doesn’t matter how much knowledge is known, rather how ignorant you choose to be.
“What is not thought by all men cannot be true” is the common belief in the totalitarian world of Anthem (73). In this post-apocalyptic and altruistic society people can only exists through the service to their brothers, and individual thoughts and actions are shunned upon. Equality 2-72521 is brilliant, using technologies he found from before the “great rebirth” to formulate new conclusions about the virtually unexplored world of his time. With individualism shunned, personal thought is prohibited as well. Idiosyncrasy of anyone is looked upon as evil because it is different from other brother men, so people are bred to be and think the same. Science and technology are advanced upon with the thought of individuals coming up with new hypothesis

No one was supposed to perish that night. He did not wish to perform his job, but the decisions of those that expire shall always repeat. He was stuck. He moved through town, piercing through the foggy streets of town, heading as slowly as possible for the inevitable destination, just outside of town where he should wait. They would come to him, sooner or later. They always did.The calm closed around him, moving from those that chose their fate, hearing their echos seemingly drown away in the mist. He was not needed here, he would see them soon

Anthem was written in 1961. The book is set in the future in a dystopia where all technology has digressed. The most recent inventions of the protagonist's time is the candle and glass window. The government has complete control and citizens have absolutely zero freedom. Nobody, not even the government, is allowed to say the word “I”; not many people even know that the word exists. Instead, citizens use the word “we” because of an ancient stone with these words engraved on it: “We are one in all and all in one. There are no men but only the great WE, One, indivisible and forever” (Rand 19). The government, or high council, put many rules into place. For example, men can not talk to women, everyone has to agree on everything, and walking somewhere without a purpose is outlawed.

Anthem overall was a good book it caught my attention. In Anthem the younger people are the ones that are curious about everything that was the past that is hidden and everything that isn't or hasn't yet been discovered.

The reason young people are attracted to dystopian style books is because they feel that they know more than the adults think they do.
