On individuality and competition, humanity and freedom

Shifra directed me to "Harrison Bergeron" by Kurt Vonnegut. It's a short story. Very short. Tell me what you think. Take careful note of the year in which the story was written.

p.s. I am a great fan of the short story as a genre. I'm considering posting a short story link every now and then to discuss. Any interest?

I'm definitely interested. I have written, or started to write rather, many short stories. For children and adults!

I remember reading this in high school and not knowing what to make of it. A sad commentary of life at best.
