My dad stresses the importance of wearing my seatbelt, because most fatal car accidents he responds to are caused from someone not wearing their seat belt.

"I was not predicting the future, I was trying to prevent it" (Bradbury). The world illustrated in Fahrenheit 451 isn 't that far off from our own. Technology has become a very influential part of everyone 's lives, and has control over people’s actions and thoughts.

However millions of people today are being denied the most basic way to gain information. The North Korean government is censoring their citizens from contacting anyone in the world. This can also be seen throughout Bradbury’s novel Fahrenheit 451. It is not truly illegal to contact people, but the society makes it feel that communication is not normal. That it is not normal for people to talk about things that are going on in the world around

Modern sentencing practices are outrageous and out of control. People go to prison for 162 years for stealing a car or 25 to life just for simply making a mistake of leaving their child in the car for no longer than 20 minutes without killing or harming the child. Even the innocent get sentenced major years for crimes they didn’t even commit. Lately sentencing has been crazy, so at this point in time sentence reforming is relevant in this case. To begin with, sentence reforming needs to take place because people are getting way to many years for petty crimes they didn't commit.
By my definition however, the McClellans are peculiar because they act different from other people in the novel. 2.) According to the society in Fahrenheit 451, the McClellans are peculiar because the uncle drove 40 miles an hour on a highway and her uncle was a “pedestrian” one time, they have all their lights on at night, and they stay up late just talking (pages 6 and 7). 7. The final question that Clarisse asks Montag is “Are you happy?”(Bradbury 7) This question is important because it sets the story in motion.
Why do cops kill for no reason? In the month between May and June more than 4 people in every state was getting killed by a cop (Dilascio) .Police Brutality is excessive force or use of a weapon against a civilian. This issue is important to society because people need to know the law and how it works. Congress passed a law that really does not hold any weight it’s called “police misconduct” but this isn’t hitting the main point of Police Brutality. Police Brutality is wrong because people lose their lives or get beat and harmed from a simple arrest.
Fahrenheit 451 “I don’t try to describe the future. I try to prevent it” (Bradbury). Ray Bradbury’s book Fahrenheit 451 is about a future that he wished to provoke. He wanted to warn society not to abandon valuable knowledge such as literature. His dystopic novel is about a future world where books are outlawed and firemen have rather different jobs.
If people were happy, there would be no pain and suffering, but there is. On the other hand, our society is like the one in Fahrenheit 451 because we too are self- involved. People only spend time on their phones or computers or TVs. People never spend time with each other, but instead find value in their virtual friends. Society today, as one could see, is much like and different from the Fahrenheit 451 dystopia regarding feelings and emotions.
The students at Saltillo are not allowed to use lockers, but should be; they are allowed to be exempt from exams, but should not be. This might seem like a good thing to many students, but it actually the opposite. When the students who make A’s and B’s in high school make it to college, they have no clue how to study for, or take an exam, because they never had to before. By not forcing students to take exams, Saltillo High School is failing to fully prepare their students for life outside of high school. The changes that should be made to the rule book at Saltillo High School are minor but they would definitely make the school function a lot better and allow the students leave the school ready for what is to come.
In fact, I did not know what genre the novel is before reading it, so for some time I was convinced it is a slice of life story, maybe even utopian; we see an elite school Hailsham with a variety of classes, good teachers, friendly students etc. Only after revelations halfway through the book do we realize clones’ real fate and the truth behind seemingly utopian society. In the book humans do not want to discuss the role of clones in their society, they do not want to think of them as humans – society’s flaws are just not considered as flaws by these people. In “Never Let Me Go” utopia justifies the means - the costs of a world without many serious diseases thanks to organ transplants are clones’ lives. Clones are sacrifices for the “greater good” – well-being of the majority is more important than well-being of an individual.
