In addition, if this were implemented chaos and disorder would follow. Thus, their would be disarangemnet within the government and people would turn against each other. In like manner, certain people would seek higher power and others would be caught poowerless living in fear. Overall, the reucorance of this decade would only have a negative effect toward society if implemented again. Moreover, the different forms of power which people possesed led to fear within each person.
Some people may say that Malcolm X is incorrect because it is your choice to read/watch the news. For example, if someone is reading an article and they don’t like what they are reading, they can simply put the article down and never be compelled to see it again. However, the opposing side regarding Malcolm X’s quote is inaccurate, because the citizens are obliged to know what’s going on in the world, so they have no choice but to read the article eventually. People rely on the news to tell them what’s going on, and if the news are dishonest, the citizens who read the news are are misinformed. This is supported by the quote saying “If you don 't read the newspaper, you 're uninformed.
Today’s world is basically run by the media itself or social media. Racial profiling is a very sensitive topic nowadays to many people. This topic really falls heavy under discrimination. Discrimination is where there is unfair treatment to people because of their group membership. (Brym, 2013) The thing is about races is that there’s so much stereotypes about them.
But it can only do so to the extent that humans are determined to use it towards those ends.” He wants the people to see how television can be used as more than entertainment but as a weapon of knowledge. Another major similarity between the two speeches is that they are both against conformity. The definition of conformity is behavior in accordance with socially accepted conventions or standards. Conformity is a comfort method and is used when people don't want or like change in their lives. V’s way of arguing against conformity is by stating “And where once you had the freedom to object, to think and speak as you saw fit, you now have censors and systems of surveillance coercing your conformity.” What he means by this is that long time ago there was freedom and now people just do what the government want them
Today, we are living in a very complex social environment. In today’s society, people are stereotyped in many different ways depending which category an individual is located in. Haven’t you been stereotyped at some point in your life? Or you may have stereotyped someone without even noticing it. Stereotyping is actually more serious than we thought and it is becoming a major problem in our society today.
For someone to make a good decision they need to look at the choices from multiple objective positions. Therefore, if we are blinded by the government to relevant perspectives, we are in turn blinded to important options, which leads us to make bad decisions. This is portrayed very well in Fahrenheit 451 by George Orwell as one of the main plot points of the book is the destruction of books and other thought provoking medias. Through the systematic destruction of these medias many important perspectives have been removed from the American population turning a lot of them into thoughtless beings. With these perspectives removed the general populace of American have been making poor decisions, leading them to miserable almost meaningless lives.
In both stories the people in power focus on the wrong things and it ends up hurting their citizens. The people in both worlds rely on technology to do very important jobs and this reliance causes the societies to misuse their technology. 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
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.
To have productive people we need morals in our world. Censorship keeps us respectful of each other in order to be productive. Censorship creates safety In society hall Johnson author of “Censorship of War Casualties,” the author states “Americans are morally responsible for the wars and the war crimes controlled in their names.” By censoring our society we can have less wars and create morals. Hall also says.” We need to not give the news media so much info on war”. When we allow the news media to report our war tactics and give out info that destroys society and morals.
Some may argue that the government should be strictly respected because they provide and protect our basic freedoms and needs. Others may disagree and state that it is appropriate to not only rebel, but overthrow the government no matter the condition due to a lack of trust and a sense of individuality that these defiant citizens feel they possess and must preserve. I feel that these two views are too extreme and that there is no sense in having too much or too little trust in the government. People should be cautious, and should not act unless there is a sense of intense corruption within the government which can be reversed through peaceful actions, brought on by voicing an opinion, even if it is not deemed valuable by the
