Equality 7-2521 lives in the Dark Ages of the future, where all decisions are made by committee, all people live in collectives, all traces of individualism have been wiped out. But the spark of individual thought and freedom still burns in Equality 7-2521, a passion which he has been taught to call sinful. In a purely egalitarian world, he dares to stand forth from the herd -- to think and choose for himself, to discover electricity, and to love the woman of his choice. Now he has been marked for death for committing the ultimate sin: in a world where the great "we" reign supreme, he has rediscovered the lost and holy word "I". This provocative book is an anthem sung in praise of man's ego.… (més)

This was a strange, powerful read. Ayn Rand's philosophy of the "I" is most evident in this simple yet stimulating novella.

She depicts a society where there is absolutely no individualism to speak of; it's also a society where men work for other men and all technology/progress is controlled. It's a nightmarish world which I wouldn't ever wish upon my worst enemies.

She writes about the human spirit, individuality, and free will. While her philosophy of the "I" and the "ego" are more prominent in her later books, I feel that this short novella is an excellent sample of her ideas.

I'd love to recommend this book to everyone. Even if you're an ardent supporter of collectivism, socialism, or whatever similar -ism(s) there may be, I feel this is something you need to read. ( )

Review of eBook

In a dark world ruled by the World Council, there are no individuals, no choices, no options. The Council of Vocations decides what work each one will do; it has been so since the Great Rebirth following the Unmentionable Times. There is no longer the individual, only the collective.

But the restrictions cannot stop Equality 7-2521 from being curious, from wondering. And although he realizes that, according to the teachings, such ideas are evil, he cannot stop himself. What will happen as Equality 7-2521 rebels against the “We” and discovers the long-lost “I” that belongs to every person?

This narrative serves as a sort of prophecy, an observation on the loss of the individual to the machinations of the powerful [that is, “the state”]. It’s an ode to individualism, to freedom, to choice. It’s quite heavy-handed on the hypocrisy of the leadership [that is, those wielding the power] and the inequitable treatment of the populace destined to follow orders without question. The glorification of individualism, of owing nothing to any other continually jumps out at the reader.

While it is true that each individual has moral worth and deserves both freedom and independence, the true answer to the conundrum would seem to lie somewhere midway between individualism and collectivism. However, “Anthem” is worth reading as a reminder that when we forget to value each person, something important is lost.

Recommended. ( )

I hate this book.
Just added additional point for its length, but boy, Ayn makes it difficult for me to finish it!
I was already not in the mood to read anything else other than short books, and this one is making it worse.
Are her other books better than this?
Because right now I'm determined not to waste my time in reading The Fountainhead.
Glad I didn't buy it on sale when I had the chance, but it's another story. ( )

This was the first book I read on my new-to-me Nook, and it was immediately followed by an attempt at Marx, and preceded by Kirkegaard. I was not terribly taken by this story, although I do appreciate its use of narrative and character development. ( )

It is a sin to write this. It is a sin to think words no others think and to put them down upon a paper no others are to see. It is base and evil. It is as if we were speaking alone to no ears but our own. And we know well that there is no transgression blacker than to do or think alone. We have broken the laws. The laws say that men may not write unless the Council of Vocations bid them so. May we be forgiven!

This, my body and spirit, this is the end of the quest.
Rather would we be damned with you than blessed with all our brothers.
The fortunes of my spirit are not to be made into coins of brass and be flung into the wind as alms for the poor of spirit.
I understood that centuries of chains and lashes will not kill the spirit of man nor the sense of truth within him.
