Bradbury also despised the rise of special interest groups and the idea of political correctness, saying “If we listened to all these groups then we wouldn’t have anything to read or anything to look at” (Aggelis). Bradbury’s personal opinions on censorship and political correctness helped influence his writing of Fahrenheit
Beatty is the antagonist in the book fahrenheit 451. Or so it seems, he is shown as the person who wants to stay in power by persuading people to stay on his side.

It is stated that people phased out books and certain knowledge because they wanted to live in a culture where their in no worries and contradictory statements. If you 've read the book you know the beatty tries multiple times to try and get montag to forget about the books and even went as far as ignoring fire calls on him.

Those fears were unwarranted because the Constitution, did not allow the government to oppressed the citizens of the nation. Because of the checks and balances written in by the founding fathers. These checks and balance made sure that the government would always do what the will of the people wanted. Jefferson would not compromise and lobbied his policies instead. He even went as far as to say “Every government degenerates when trusted to the rulers…alone.
The belief is that you do not hurt anyone but you disobey the law to show what you think. The idea is the same for in Fahrenheit 451 the people who get arrested for owning books are being civilly disobedient of the law and showing what they think and try to start a spark, but in the end no one listens and everyone dies. One of the last works that will be compared is the Declaration of Independence. This document talks about human rights and the need to defend them. The dystopian society that Fahrenheit 451 is set in does not allow for people to have the right to happiness as seemingly implied of a comment by a doctor who says people overdosing is a common call for them.The right to life is seemingly not given as people don’t get a fair trial when convicted of a crime as they seem to be immediately executed on the
The government is becoming such a powerful force where they decided what is good and what is bad for you. In Fahrenheit 451 Ray Bradbury demonstrates a world where reading and possession of books is illegal. The government has decided to forbid books in an attempt to stop any kind of emotion, prevent fights, deep thoughts and debates. This has caused the independent thinking of people to stop altogether.

That 's why the wall of Berlin was tore down, because it didn 't do anything but destroy the government and people of that country. If people were meant to be isolated, then maybe a wall would be the answer, but people deserve freedom. Maybe now, we the people know not to ever build a wall to seperate anybody from anything.
What Nixon plan was first to have “His aids to avoid all contact with critical journals” (Lukas 32), and for certain reporters who didn’t bring up questions about Watergate “Rewarded a few friendly reporters with exclusive interviews or tips” (Lukas 32). This would’ve kept the reporters away from discussing Watergate. Still many believe the truth is being hold back from the public, so the press keeps pushing it down Nixon and anyone possibly took role in the event. A hatred was born between the messengers and the writer. Shown in Patrick J. Buchanan The Media Hated Nixon and Drove Him from Office from Alex Cruden “Watergate” states “The media and political establishments hated Nixon” (Buchanan 78).
In Brave New World the society is limited to the amount knowledge they are allowed to know so they won't revolt against the government and by being ignorant they are happy. Anthem’s society is suppressed from information so everyone can remain equal and their government can manipulate its people.
