Harrison Bergeron can be applied today in that we strive to have everyone equal. In our society we aren’t equal but we treat others as if we want the to be equal. Those that are better than us we put down because we are jealous of the areas they have succeeded in. Those that we feel are less than us we put down to make ourselves feel better about our situation. If someone gets and award are we really proud of them or do we look for areas they have failed on their way to success. With every successful person their is someone trying to dig up dirt on them so that we all feel better about ourselves.
