2081: Everyone Will Finally Be Equal


I am always interested in movies that present an image of the future. Some are nothing more then blockbuster fluff like I,Robot, however some are smaller films and are a lot more interesting, Children of Men for example.

2081 Image

2081: Everyone Will Be Equal is based on the short story Harrison Bergeron by author Kurt Vonnegut, 2081 depicts a dystopian future in which, thanks to the 212th Amendment to the Constitution and the unceasing vigilance of the United States Handicapper General, everyone is finally equal… The strong wear weights, the beautiful wear masks and the intelligent wear earpieces that fire off loud noises to keep them from taking unfair advantage of their brains. It is a poetic tale of triumph and tragedy about a broken family, a brutal government, and an act of defiance that changes everything.

    I really can't wait for that one this is totally my kind of sci-fi I am not saying it's like 1984 but it have the same quality and I have the feeling it will be as great hope I am right.

    It's genius, the concept of the story. I am excited that more and more of the kinds of movies that make you think are coming out instead of the ones that are just mindless explosions, although those are good too.

    How would it work? You can weight down the strong, dumb down the smart but how would you raise the intellect of a retard or enable a paralytic to be equally strong?

    They wouldn't. They would either make everyone equal to the least, or find ways to enhance them. Or kill them…a society like this probably has no problem with eugenics.

    Although I love quirky sci-fi that tries to do something different (like 12 Monkeys) I also have a problem relating to anything that seems so implausible, so I'm not sure about this one..

    It seems implausible, but its already happened. Just look around you.

    • fuck you

      go suck a dick. Nothing like this is happening. Until I get proof, I won’t beleive it.

      Now, go choke on that nice fat cock you found. Preferably on your own vomit as it shoves its way down your throat :)

    The short story is excellent. I would recommend it to anyone.

    I saw the original made for TV movie with Sean Astin back in 1995 and I am eagerly waiting for this flick to come out.

    this seems to be just a mixup between V for vendetta and Brave New World. someone needs to come up with an idea that hasn't been thought of already, so isn't derivative.

    Except the short story Harrison Bergeron was written in 1961 so it predates V for Vendetta.

    Wow ross, please check your "facts" before you make uneducated comments. Also, do yourself a favor, and read the short story.

    I like how misinterpreted this Vonnegut story is. Believing that this story is anti equality is like inviting Stephen Colbert to speak at the Republican correspondents dinner. Vonnegut is rolling in his grave.

    Diversity means that no two people are equal.
    And that is beautiful!

    Think of it. If we forced all the different bird races to mix, then after 30 years, all we would have is one single kind of brown, unhealthy ugly bird. Anywhere you go in the world, there would be either no birds because they cannot survive in many arias, or the same exact bird. That is anti diversity.

    Celebrating diversity is keeping it diverse! That is beautiful.
    Liberals are killing diversity, they will not rest till there is no diversity.

    Protect diversity today.
