Montag broke the law multiple times and tried to change society and made people afraid. He was also justified in taking montages earpiece so he could track down faber so they could stop illegal activities.

America believed that the USSR was an expansionist country trying to spread an evil, communistic idea throughout the world. Although the countries never directly fought against each other, as they only fought in proxy wars, there was still extreme conflict.
