The public are banned from owning or reading books, there are many reasons for why people are so averse towards books and submit to the government. Entertainment such as, tv and radio play a big part in why most people do not independently think for themselves.The bigger reason is the sensitivities towards the “offensive” opinions written in these books that makes people submit to the goverments rules. This makes one either obey the authority and seeing what can happen to the world if they chose to let it stay the same or disobeying authority for change. Very much alike the recent occurrences where some college students have been rejecting the books they were given and are requesting new books and passages that are not offensive for the end result of softening and changing dated learning. On the other hand, there are new rules that are trying to make penitentiary’s “safer”, though adding specific approved “respectable” books for the prisoners to read and taking away their personal input on information.
“There is more than one way to burn a book. And the world is full of people running about with lit matches” (Bradbury, 1979, Coda). Molly Guptill Manning would argue that censoring a book is equivalent to burning it to ashes. Manning uses her own book, When Books Went to War, to convey an argument against Title V, an amendment to the 1944 Soldier Voting Bill created by Robert A. Taft that “placed restrictions on amusements distributed to the servicemen, including books, so long as they were provided by the government and made some reference to politics” (Manning, 2014, p. 135). The eighth chapter titled: “Censorship and FDR’s F---th T—m”, chronicles the proposal of Title V, its consequences, and its ultimate elimination.

The books argued women are inferior and there were no books about women written by a woman.
When the government bans reading it eliminates excessive thinking and imagination. Taking that away can drive some people insane; like when people are told they can’t do something, then it creates a drive to do that to prove that limitations can’t limit them.

The old saying is don’t judge a book by it’s cover and I think that is a lesson that we all should know. Society sucks nowadays because if you don’t have the right clothes or the right car or the right amount of money then you are an outcast. Well let me tell you it is okay to be an outcast. If you want to be like Hester Prynne then go for it. If you want to be like one of the girls from the Crucible then do it.
Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury emphasis his belief on censorship and how the future society will be if authority controls the daily aspect of life. Ray Bradbury does this by not allowing anyone to own or read a book, because the society believes that books provide the citizen with unnecessary and false thoughts, if the person is caught with books your whole house is burned and then the individual will be incarcerated. Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451 expresses the dangers of censorship through limiting the citizens access to knowledge, removing Constitutional Rights, and establishing a realistic allegory similar to today’s society. There are many dangers how censorship limits citizens access to knowledge in many ways.

It was like the author was trying too hard for this book to be fun and light and cute... but it just seemed silly and poorly written.

I was not satisfied.
