Mildred has been influenced by society and represents the ideal citizen in that her social interactions are minimal, she is numb to her own emotions, and she avoids thinking for herself. Clarisse is the complete opposite of Mildred and is connected to her family and Montag, happy and a free thinker. She has been influenced by her non-conforming uncle, but since society snuffs out non-conformity, it is not surprising that Clarisse meets an abrupt end. Mildred, as the symbol of the majority, is appropriately destroyed with the rest of the society. The majority will always herd us to thoughtless, emotionless, disconnected conformity.
