Technology is all around us. It is very easy to access and to use. As the time goes on, technology such as the phone or computer becomes most more of a necessity than a luxury.

As technology advances exponentially, America and the world need to learn how to use this technology without abusing it. Ray Bradbury writes about a dystopian America with huge problems ignored by the public in his novel, Fahrenheit 451. Today, America already faces many problems that might cause disastrous effects in the future. Bradbury uses his novel to warn against certain aspects of modern society through a story about a society that became too dependent on television. Although the novel describes a fictional America set in the future, Fahrenheit 451 presents serious warnings about the dangers of conformity and technology in modern society that apply to America today.
This is due to technology. For example, on page 13 it states, “Got so many, starting a few years ago, we had the special machines built.” This shows that the technology has gotten out of control by allowing simple minding people to do extreme tasks. No one cares how little they know, because it’s as simple as that; that is all that they know. In “Harrison Bergeron”, the theme is exhibited in a different way.
Although the advancement of technology can lead to a greater efficiency, it can also lead people to rely on these technological advances too much that can cause them to become “brainless”. Technology plays a very important aspect in the world of Fahrenheit 451. People in their society has little or no interactions with others, and can barely have a thoughtful conversation. This is seen when Mildred tells Montag, “I went to to Helen’s last night”(Bradbury 50). Montag then asks her , “Couldn’t you get the shows in your own parlor?”
Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury portrays a futuristic dystopian society where the “firemen” start fires rather than put them out. The members of this society concentrate only on entertainment, immediate satisfaction, and rush through life. The general theme of modernization and the domination of technology over man cause society to lose sight of the importance of genuine human relationships. The ideals represented in Fahrenheit 415 such as technology and entertainment having full authority over humans has become even more prevalent on today’s society. The people of Fahrenheit 451 fear knowledge, which authorizes the government to have total control over what they do or do not read, watch, and discuss which causes them to be striped of their individualism.
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.

Two pieces by Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451 and The Veldt, both share the theme that society and technology shouldn’t affect the actions people take, however, this theme is portrayed differently in each novel. To start, The Veldt leads to the theme that society shouldn’t affect the actions people take, but it conveys this theme differently than in the novel Fahrenheit 451 because, in The Veldt, the mom and dad are very ignorant of the problem that is occurring. On page 27, the parents are told by a psychologist that the technology in their house is ruining their children. “In this case, however, the room has become a channel toward destructive thoughts, instead of a release away from them.”
