The Surveillance Society In the article, The Surveillance Society, by David Von Drehle, talks about the privacy of today’s society.

Ray’s purpose in using these characters is as a symbol for the main character, Guy Montag. He uses Montag to notice what society has hidden by dropping these characters into his life.
