This both happens in Fahrenheit 451 with technology and 1984 with the totalitarian government. In Fahrenheit 451, citizens are controlled by technology and think books are just a source of evil. They think that the firemen are a helpful cause in society while “[the] firemen provide a circus… and crowds gather for the pretty blaze.” (Bradbury 83). The society is practically brainwashed into believing that destruction is a beautiful sight to see, practically leading to the wars they cause. This type of behavior of having entertainment from destruction occurs in 1984 also.
In Orwell’s novel, 1984, he illustrates the commotion going on during the Hate Week. Big Brother wired the minds of people from Oceania to control their thoughts. In mid-sentence, the speaker switched the names around so that instead of being at war with Eurasia, Oceania was at war with Eastasia and the listeners did not notice the sudden change, showing how their minds are controlled.

Huxley’s main argument in Brave New World is if the human race continues to allow science, technology, and material objects control our lives, society will lose a reasonable and moral lifestyle. Huxley’s argument is well-presented because Huxley executes the creation of a dystopian world in which tyrannical leaders are able to control the consumption, emotions, and fears of the entire population through the use of technology. In the novel World State uses technology to make citizens simple-minded and controls every aspect of their lives. To readers the practices of World State might be unjust but many aspects of the novel relate to the real world. In order to address the increasing dependence on technology, Huxley incorporates satirical elements in Brave New World.
Governments like to be in command and supervise its citizens. With that, there are always some citizens that will rebel over the people in charge. People will rebel because they gain much knowledge from literature, news media, entertainment, and presently, the internet that contradicts the government. The government is intelligent because it has the power to change what the people look at to make them dense and without an opinion of what the government says. Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury shows an accurate representation of what the government does to its people.
