Harrison Bergeron is a dystopian science fiction short story written by Kurt Vonnegut, first published in 1961. The story is set in a futuristic society where the government enforces strict equality among citizens by handicapping those with exceptional abilities. In this world, people with above-average intelligence, strength, or beauty are forced to wear devices that inhibit their natural talents, ensuring that no one is superior to anyone else.

The story follows the character of Harrison Bergeron, a 14-year-old boy who is exceptionally tall, strong, and intelligent. Despite the numerous handicaps imposed on him by the government, Harrison rebels against the oppressive regime and attempts to break free from the constraints placed upon him.

Harrison Bergeron is a powerful critique of the dangers of enforced equality and the loss of individuality in a society where conformity is valued above all else. The story raises important questions about the nature of freedom, the value of individual talents, and the consequences of absolute equality. Through its darkly satirical lens, Harrison Bergeron exposes the potential pitfalls of a society that strives for uniformity at the expense of individuality and personal excellence.


"The year was 2081, and everybody was finally equal."

"It was then that the Bergerons' television tube burned out. Hazel turned to comment about the blackout to George. But George had gone out into the kitchen for a can of beer."
