Hiding your differences is the first theme because everyone has disabilities so that nobody is better than anyone else. One of the first lines in the story is “The year was 2081, and everybody was finally equal.” Nobody is stronger than anyone else. Nor are they attractive, smarter, or more talented. People do the things they are not good at so that nobody has any real skills. The better you are, the more disabilities you have.

Labelled and separated from the rest of society. These kids were afraid of being themselves; afraid of the life which they had in store. Being 'special ' made it hard enough to cope with everyday struggles and situations, so when they were taken from their families and entered into a new and unfamiliar environment, it made it ten times harder to adjust to the new normality 's and rules of "The Farm". The readers position, helps them to observe the character Chris as a prime example of someone who is putting on a show and pretending to be "Normal" all for the sake of fitting in. The human mind is a powerful piece of machinery with a distinct "us" versus "them" intellect.
Without the right to make choices we are essentially slaves to society, every aspect of our individuality will become non-existent, we will have no identity. A utopian society is one that operates on the principles of utilitarianism, everyone must be happy at all times no matter what circumstances. In the novel each individual from the “New World” is incapable of experiencing true emotions because they are controlled and taken away from them. There relations are practically non-existent, and they do not have any
In Fahrenheit 451, their technology definitely gets out of control. However, this isn’t in a good way. In fact, it is in a very negative way for their society. The government puts limits and restrictions and what the people can know and learn. They do that through technology by making people want to watch television in place of reading.
The society appears utopic in nature, but in reality people who live there are miserable and unhappy. Bradbury portrays a society where Seashells and TV wall screens define happiness. The majority of the population spends a tremendous time with their electronic “family” that does not have positive effects on them. In fact, the TV shows presented on the walls have a lack of meaning and lead to a conformist place – they do not encourage individual thinking. For instance, this lack of distinctiveness is explained by the formal belief of this society, which states that freedom, critical thinking, and imagination lead to war and create unhappiness.

Everyone doesn 't get the chance to keep good company simply because they didn 't have a good family background or even friends that lead them in the wrong direction. Or most commonly they don 't know God. Everyone has the option of free-will and chose what 's right and wrong, depending on the situation.
