As Harry Browne once said, “Since no one but you can know what 's best for you, government control can 't make your life better.” In Fahrenheit 451, a book by Ray Bradbury, he shows ways on how the government is controlling society with surveillance, technology, and censorship. The government gets to decide what is to be done and what comes in and out of that country. In the novel, it shows how the firefighter, Guy Montag, is different than the other people in that society. These aspects of government control are directly going towards Montag because the advance in technology put into the watchdogs that are in Bradbury’s novel is unbelievable. Multiple news articles suggest that the government is, in fact, controlling our every move.

For example, “The instrument (telescreen) could be dimmed… no way of shutting it off completely.”THrough this piece of technology the party can monitor the other citizens without them being able to do anything against it. “To the future or the past, to a time when thought is free, when we are different from one another and do not live alone- to a time when truth exist and what is done cannot be undone.” In 1984 Winston’s job and others like him is to edit the news to the point where it helps the government. However, if they begin to know too much and spread the word they are deleted from existence, in other words they become vaporized: everything about them is deleted from existence. In the other the government’s technology has its limitations as they couldn’t afford to have telescreen in the poor people's houses.”In the far distance a helicopter skipped down between the roots, hovered for an instant like a bluebottle and darted away again with a long
The talk of perfecting the ‘new age’ has yet to reach its success. As the world adjusts and advance in new every-once-and-awhile problems, people find new situations that cause disastrous events.

Daisy wants to stay with Tom because he has the status and money that she wants so much. If she left him, she’d be losing those assets. However, since George doesn’t have these assets, he has no incentive for Myrtle to stay with him, so he has to remove her from the affair by force. Plus, the law is clearly still applicable to those of lower status, as it’s present when Myrtle is killed, We know that Myrtle is killed by Gatsby’s car, but there is no follow-through from the law apparent. In fact, one of the only consequences in the book for the upper-class is George Wilson's act of renegade
The non-conformist is painted to be the villain, or the one with an ugly aura, by the state, who expresses conformity. On the contrary, in reality, the non-conformist becomes the hero, or the one of beauty. All three non-conformists started out as characters who desired to conform; Montag originally ignored his curiosity for knowledge, Emmett read the handbook on a daily basis, and the woman tried to alter her appearance through surgery just to match everyone else. Alas, for whatever reason they are unable to achieve the desired goal of conformity, but are eventually happy with their individuality. For example, Montag realizes that his individuality is the reason he remained alive, while all the conformists did not survive the nuclear bombing.

This can make it extremely difficult to run a large government.
Being under total government control one minute, and not having a steady government the next must have really been challenging to the people of Burma. When looked at it, things are so different living in the United States because although true equality is still being fought for, it’s nothing compared to not having an unstable government. It may be thought the government is unstable because the party running the country is unfavored, but imagine being under Europe, then being broken
