The independent spirit of Equality 7-2521 embodies the American ethos of individuals rebelling against prescribed conformity. Equality breaks out of imposed collective norms to forge his own future. He takes hold of his own emotional and intellectual freedom and builds a life away from the socialist-like system that shackled his spirit.
