A considerable measure of times, technology has the capacity help us, however it likewise influences our lives in a bigger number of courses than we might suspect. For instance, in the short story “The Pedestrian” by Ray Bradbury is demonstrating an antagonistic part of how technology changed society. Technology is giving individuals some sort of force that they end up abusing. The policeman that was cruising by, let his power get to his head so he attempted to capture Mr. Mead in light of his title and on the grounds that he could.

The United States Armed Forces is known for its agility and strength with the enabling ability to fight and win wars; however, our force is facing its own internal battle that seems to be diminishing its force, manpower, and morale. The invisible war as it is called in the media, documentaries, and books displayed the most shameful and well-kept secret within the military expanding back into the 1960’s. In recent years, this battle has drawn the attention of media due to the unprofessional and heinous act of its service members. This act consists of sexual assault and harassment, which is undermining the image and characteristics of a well-structured organization. This volunteer-based force is a complex combination of men and women from all
Police officers were once known as peace keepers, however, now they are the ones to avoid. They’re more worried about quotas, and are using their power to arrest innocent people that quickly escalates to police brutality. Our constitutional rights are being violated and that’s the biggest issue in America now. Police are supposed to protect and serve the people, however their power is being abused and it’s causing riots.

Meaning liars always assume others are liars..” With this being stated, when others assume that the police are liars they themselves are liars??

When people feel as if their freedoms are being restricted, they will rebel. In “Harrison Bergeron” and “The Pedestrian”, the controlling government, dependency and misuse of technology and the significant rebellious acts caused by these things create a dystopian world for its
During the process of gathering and rioting in a nonviolent manner, the more aggrandized the faction seems, the more they attract attention. Once a faction acquires attention from the public, media, etc., the people in power will start to feel intimidated. Once individuals in authority, realize that the faction keeps expanding and they keep obtaining more support, then they apply martial law in order to appease the masses or else they will face the consequences of their actions. Once the populace realizes that their cause of fighting is bigger than any individual, that is the beginning point towards victory. Schock, during his analysis of the downfall of the Shah states, "the Shah was toppled not by an armed insurgency, but rather by an unarmed insurrection whereby ordinary citizens engaged in methods of nonviolent action, such as protests, demonstrations, strikes, boycotts, and civil disobedience"(Schock p.3).
In addition, Finnegan challenged the producers to create a scenario where the usage of torture backfires. The image of the U.S. military changed from being the world police into a feared superpower because of the brutality presented in shows like 24.
