In Document E no one has any memories of color which is one of the reasons of why Jonas was so upset about because since there was no color in the community people couldn’t decide. This also builds on the idea that people have no freedom because they don’t even get memories of color, they don’t get memories of feelings, they don’t get memories of anything besides what the community lets them know. The idea of them having no memories is also told in Document B where the Giver tells Jonas how he has to hold all of the painful memories and soon he will to. The other people in the community have no idea of any of these memories and sure some of the people who say that this could be good because they are protecting the people from anything painful, but this is also bad because that is the problem without them knowing what hurting yourself is they think they can do most things like jump off of high ledges or other cases where it will end in harm. Since they don’t know what pain is they wouldn’t know what hurts them and they will probably end up living dangerous lives just how they don’t know that release is actually where they kill
This is most clearly shown through Mrs. Bowles’ C-sections and her lack of relationships with her children. Montag recognises his lack of emotions towards Mildred, demonstrating the dehumanization of society. Granger explains how society used to be, with meaningful lives and human emotions/relationships. Without these human characteristics, life is not valued and not seen as important. Because of this, the people spend their days doing whatever makes them think they are happy for that moment in time.
Many people in our society refuse to think that mental illness is something real or that it affects many people. Mental illness is something that is looked over and never gets any real attention. Many people are not able to get help because they don’t have the resources or it is considered to feminine. “The C-Word in the Hallways” by Anna Quindlen and the book, The Catcher in the Rye, by J.D. Salinger and the movie Dead Poets Society, explore society’s attitude towards teenage mental health.
Sadly, Charles Wallace is considered the moronic outcast, due to the fact that he refuses to speak to his peers. He denied himself to talk to others, since the circular in school was exhaustively too effortless. Therefore others inferred that he was incapable of speaking to them, hence they refused interaction with Charles Wallace. While Calvin is reading Genesis to Charles Wallace, Meg along with Mrs. Murry, were discussing Charles Wallace’s differences while questioning if Charles Wallace’s differences were tangible or psychological. "Charles Wallace understands more than the rest of us doesn’t he?"
Mildred becomes obsessed with “the wall” and ultimately ignores Montag. It can also be seen by the lack of a familial relationship between the children and the parents. Because the children are always in “the nursery”, the parents do not interact or communicate with their children enough. Overall, technology has a negative effect on people in Fahrenheit 451 and “The Veldt” due to its replacement of human interaction within
Cliff went from being intellectual to being described as slow and not able to communicate well verbally. Teachers starting labeling him as “dumb” and a “slow learner” and he carried this with him affecting his already fragile state. In the story Cliff did not have a feeling of being worthy therefore, he was unable to see
For example, if a person is isolated, they feel alone and like they have nobody to turn to. This will make them feel trapped, and less likely to contradict their controller or stand up for themselves. Take the rumours about Boo Radley for example. In Maycomb, a small town where everybody knows everybody, Boo Radley disappeared from the public eye and instantly became the subject of terrible rumours. If he ever needed help and tried to seek it from the people of Maycomb, it is very unlikely that anyone would help him due to how he was viewed: a troubled man who could be a potential threat to society.
Yet another factor contributing to Mayella being pitiful is that she is very lonely. Mayella's lonesome is due too many reasons namely, she has no companions. During the trial, Atticus asks her if she has any friends, and she appears to be confused and feels insulted even by the question. (Lee, ?) She is so lonely, she can't even comprehend the concept of having friends.
People are so reliant on these technological systems that they are incapable of doing tasks themselves. The characters are lazy and have no incentive to divert from their programmed lives. Education and illiteracy are affected by the culture in Fahrenheit 451 as well. Because books are illegal in Fahrenheit 451, no one reads. It causes the citizens to be very unintelligent.
Most of us adults are so afraid, so cautious, so 'safe,' and therefore so shrinking and rigid and afraid that it is why so many humans fail. Most middle-aged adults have resigned themselves to failure. There is a thing called knowledge of the world, which people do not have until they are middle-aged. It is something which cannot be taught to younger people, because it is not logical and does not obey laws that are constant. It has no rules 'Old at
