Harrison Bergeron’’ is set in the future, when Constitutional Amendments have made everyone equal. The agents of the Handicapper General (H-G men, an allusion to the practice in the 1940s and 1950s of referring to Federal Bureau of Investigation and Secret Service officers as G-men, the G standing for government) enforce the equality laws.

People are made equal by devices which bring them down to the normalcy level in the story, which is actually below-average in intelligence, strength, and ability.Herrison isa sort of genetic superman that breaks his handicaps on television and for a brief time shows the world the beauty of human beings. He rebells against the dystopion world and is killed before he has finished his dance.
