Harrison Bergeron

(Harrison Bergeron)

Synopsis

In a society of the future after a Second American Revolution, the United States has followed a course towards human equality by making everyone into the lowest common denominator. This dark future United States achieves this equality by a program of directed breeding and where directed breeding doesn't work, citizens wear special mind control collars that handicap their intelligences to a point where everyone has about the same level of brain power. In this dark future, students are encouraged to be average and seek "C" grades. Predictably, Harrison Bergeron has such a high IQ that his mind control collar cannot effectively inhibit his intelligence and he must make a choice between a surgery similar to a lobotomy or disappear from society.
