    Well, as you for got to include the ENTIRE homework question, we do not know what "story" you are referring to.

    Why not do your OWN homework and come back to us if you have a SPECIFIC question.

    The Handicapper General makes everyone equal by harming all abilities.  That doesn't help society.  For example, a "genius doctor" would be handicapped to the healing level of an "average citizen."  Harrison is brave, and if he were interested in a military career, his bravery would be ended by Diana Moon, who is ironically named after Diana, Goddess of the Light and Moon.  That gives a clue as to Vonnegut's writerly perspective:  he is mocking the subtle yet startling inefficiency of social-ism.  A better psychology is given at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maslow's_hierarchy_o... which was new when "Harrison Bergeron" was written
