The main character Montag says “The Mechanical Hound slept but did not sleep, lived but did not live in its gently humming, gently vibrating, softly illuminated kennel back in a dark corner of the firehouse.” (Fahrenheit 451, 24).

A leading 19th century psychologist named William James stated this about propaganda: "There's nothing so absurd that if you repeat it often enough, people will believe it”. Propaganda is information, especially of a biased or misleading nature, used to promote or publicize a particular political cause or point of view. This is evident in the televised premature ending of the Montag’s chase and in the symbolism of 451 by the government in Ray Bradbury’s dystopian novel Fahrenheit 451. However, in our world propaganda has been used to unite a country through targeted mass persuasion. This is seen in two classic U.S propaganda posters that encourage U.S citizens to join the army: “I want you”(index 1) and “Remember Dec. 7th” (index 2).

From the automatic thinking machine he used to be, Montag emerges from his cocoon as an intellectual and independent thinker. Rooted in humanity, Montag accepts his responsibility of rebuilding the world from devastation. Montag depicts the inner struggle that fights between what feels right and what a person is told is right.

Home cinema systems may be seen as similar to the parlour walls and electronic literature is replacing the traditional paperback.
Curfew is a citywide order that keeps people homebound inside their homes or will face arrest. This system of keeping people out of public has proved to unuseful and outdated. According to Kenneth Adams, a criminal justice professor at the University of Central Florida, “The most useful aspect of a curfew is it gives an impression that the police are doing something” but they are not really doing anything useful other than using our tax money. Many people believe that curfew helps society keep things in order. The truth of the matter is it does the opposite and needs to be banned.
In “T.E. Hulme and the Question of Modernism”, several writers, amongst whom are Todd Avery and Rebecca Beasley, attempt to tackle this question. After all, “modernism is unintelligible now because it had truck with a modernity not yet fully in place” (14). What this implies is that modernism cannot be fully grasped nowadays because even the modernists themselves did not and could not know what the future they desired to shape for themselves would be like. They toyed with modernity in a world that was not yet modern, causing their art to be created from a perspective no person will ever see again. “The Question of Modernism” later on also explains that the formation of modernism was not a conscious one; instead, “it most generally takes the form of a belief that the future holds possibilities of the perfect which have been denied to the present and the past” (214).

The second reason Beatty is more intimidating is because he has the mechanical hound. It has a "four-inch hollow steel needle," which can inject enough morphine or procaine to crush a rat, cat, or chicken within three seconds. It watches the city for suspects. The mechanical hound is petrifying and hair-raising to even think about. Living with that in your town would be very intimidating.

Rationale: (197 words) The question that I chose from this unit was, “to what extent do the actions and decisions Malcolm and Montag make throughout the story portray the issues within their societies?”. I was interested by this question because of how simple of a term the question referred to and how it took the term deeper. While talking about the science fiction unit the protagonist was brought up as nothing special.

Have you ever thought about how living in a dystopian society would influence your life? Well, the idea of censorship is used in the novel Fahrenheit 451, by Ray Bradbury, to make an impact on the audience.

For example, Bradbury uses the dystopian element that says citizens live in a dehumanized state, to show that their society believes that curiosity is unacceptable. Next, he uses the idea that in a dystopian world, information, independent thought, and freedom is restricted, to show how books are bad in their society.
