The society in the story does not accept individuality or intellectual thought and the government has great control over the citizens. The Canadian Indian residential school system had many similar methods of control to the government in Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451. Both administrations destroyed items and ideas of the past, withheld and restricted information available to its subjects, and punished those who disobeyed. This comparison displays how residential schools have common manipulation techniques to the ministry in Fahrenheit 451. Firstly, residential schools and the government in Fahrenheit 451 demolished parts of history as a method of controlling their students or citizens.

According to Bowles and Gintis (1976) the main factor in determining someone’s success and income is not to their ability but a result of their background and class. The myth of meritocracy does nothing to help the working class, while justifying the privileges of the higher classes, giving the perception that these classes excel through fairness and open methods. The myth of meritocracy is a way of making the working class accepts their role in society. (Kennedy and Power, 2010) The idea of that meritocracy exists is given to students through the hidden curriculum. This results in the working class accepting inequality, thus making it less likely to try to overthrow capitalism.

If there is one who does not do any harms to other people and spends his entire life to fight the unfair and irrational things surrounding him, to take care of his family and friends, maybe when he past, there is no fame and no fortune, does his life change the world?

The aboriginal defender Thomas King is a critical writer worried about autochthonous citizens ' rights and their culture within both the United States and Canadian countries.

In the nonfiction texts “Children of War” by Arthur Brice, “Refugee Children in Canada’s Searching for identity” by Ana Marie Fantino and Alice Colak, and the novel Inside Out and Back Again by Thanhha Lai, the common experiences of refugees are shown. Refugees are defined as “persons residing outside their countries and cannot return due to a well-founded fear of persecution because of their race, religion, nationality, political opinion or membership in a particular social group” (Fanino and Colak). Experiences from just a few refugees in nonfiction and historical fiction texts can present an overall idea of how all their lives were flipped inside out because of war and violence. They also show what each person went through to get their lives back again. In the world there are 22.3 million refugees, half of those are children.
