In Anthem the government has control over everything in the citizens lives starting from when the people are born through every year they live until they die. They do what they are told and follow the laws that the society Is based upon.The government knew that most would conform rather than face punitive discipline (burned homes and even imprisonment and maybe even death).Therefore, they gained control of society by vanquishing individual thought and playing on the fears of the people.The government gained control over the people through a process in which they eliminated, over time, literature and media which could be deemed offensive or thought provoking.The government began noticing that the society was becoming unhappy about anything that wasn't staunchly politically correct so they began eliminating those things which aroused distress among the people.Eventually the government began making reading any unapproved literature illegal and burning books which caused people to feel emotional.The government figured the people would be easier to control is they emitted very little emotion and the government decided to give people the illusion of being smart and happy rather than giving them the tools to actually be and feel that way.However, the majority did conform and allowed themselves to be controlled by the government.It is interesting that most people made a conscious choice to allow themselves to be repressed by the harsh regime.The government actually enforced this mindset in people in a brutal manner.The totalitarian, repressive government saw that people, left to their own views, ideas, and initiatives, would be out of control (in the government’s mind), whereby said government would no longer be able to direct the thought processes..., the government eventually gained control of society by telling people what to think, instead of letting people think for themselves.
