The idea of government censorship is not a new one. Governments use censorship to gain and keep power. Rad Bradbury’s novel Fahrenheit 451 depicts the way governments use censorship as a tool to control their citizens and gain the power that they desire. Censoring ways to gain knowledge stops people from wanting to think for themselves and from challenging different points of view. They stop the desire to learn by censoring the tools they use to do just that such as books, news, entertainment, the internet, and even communication.
In Fahrenheit 451, Ray Bradbury conceptualizes a society based on censorship. In the society depicted in the novel, books are burned when they are discovered in anyone 's possession. Montag’s job is to burn books and the houses containing them to ash. “‘Do you ever read any of the books you burn?’ ‘That’s against the law’” (Bradbury, 8)! Montag seems horrified that Clarisse would ask him a question with such an obvious answer, but the truth is Montag is really curious as to what lies within these forbidden books.
He also wanted to help save Clarisse’s ideas from also dying, by acting out against the government and being the different one in the crowd/society. He wanted to change the societies feelings on books, but Beatty and the government were getting in the way.

As a conclusion we state that the movie clearly represents various messages and representations of what
In consequences, all the Protestants, Jews and Muslims from Spain where considered as heretics and were persecuted. In this work, we will firstly explore the roots of the Spanish Inquisition.

Characters in the novel are frequently shown to be contradicting traditional Catholic values and the Ten Commandments, such as the prohibition of sex before marriage. Pedro Vicario, one of the Vicario brothers behind the killing of Santiago Nasar, was “trembling with rage” (p.47) after finding out Angela Vicario was not a virgin before marriage, despite having returned from the local brothel with his brother moments before. This use of irony demonstrates the satirical nature of Márquez’s work, all the while making a commentary on the contradictory communal religious ideologies entrenched in the town. In the novel, the revered religious figures in the community are portrayed as symbols of the hollow religious beliefs in the community, solely making appearances which portray them in a negative light. Father Amador and the Bishop are portrayed to be apathetic and demonstrate un-Christian values.
In today's society there are books that are banned because of not being appropriate to modern society.
