Bradbury’s main points in this novel are that many, if not all, rely too strongly on technology, knowledge is never something people should stop striving for and individuals shouldn’t just accept what they are given just to become ignorant to the surrounding world and finally, masses have become extremely desensitized to death to the point where technology has more life than it’s creators. Since this novel takes place in a time where technology tends to destructively dominate society, people will rely on it too much which eventually leads to the downfall of human to human contact. This connection is important when spreading knowledge and ideas with other people and without it, many cannot effectively communicate or make sense of their thoughts. Mildred, Guy Montag’s wife, is a keen example for the majority of the people who are obsessed with technology. She is constantly attached to the parlor walls, which are basically just giant t.v’s that display a show called the “White Clown”.
Most people avoid the truth because it could be ugly, painful, and can possibly cause self-reflection. In today 's society we are so accustomed to fake news and the illusion of it all. To hell with facts, who needs such a preposterous thing! This way of thinking is partially our fault because we have the ability to choose if we want to engage or disconnect from the illusion. The rest should be blamed on the media because they have the power to reach and influence the world.

Imagine having the power in your hands to have someone that caused you grief hung, to press a button and vaporize a million people, or write a document and be free but, start a war. Throughout our history influential power is always lopsided. Not everyone can have the exact same amount of power their neighbor does. Imagine a world like that; there would not be any kind of government, no society, also no conflict resolution. Those who possess power always take action whether it is positive or negative; also, possessing power doesn’t mean deserving it, power in many aspects is one of the most unstable things known to man.
Army was more or less just a sign of pride and power. If Germany had to back down on army size, it would make them appear weak and powerless, which is every countries largest fear when it comes to battle or competition of any type.Also, if drafting was now illegal, and all soldiers had to be volunteers, they might not find as good of soldiers and maybe not even enough people that would want to participate without being forced. To go along with that, forfeiting their overseas empire down also made them seem more vulnerable and less powerful. Germany also worried because not being able to have armed vehicles, submarines, or aircrafts seemed unsafe. If they were not prepared to defend themselves at some point, and they were attacked with no armour, they had no chance at saving themselves.
There main interest is stability and their worst threat is civil war (Geddes, 2004: 11-13). Consequently, the most important concern for many officers deciding whether to join a coup conspiracy is their assessment of how many other officers will join (Geddes, 2004: 13). Military regimes tend to split when challenged, because military regimes are more likely to negotiate their own withdrawal and to democratize (Geddes, 2004: 6). Personal regimes are different from both military and single-party regimes, because on individual dominates the military, state apparatus and the ruling party. Personalist regimes rarely leave office voluntarily and more often end in popular uprising, revolution, invasion or assassination (Geddes, 2004:6).
That days are gone when reporters were only involved in handling news or helping hidden agendas, but now the media is into inflaming violence against opponents or other groups. They’ve become the judge and a state within the state.

A devoted follower of Pakistani media is already mindful of such
The media in Pakistan has emerged as a powerful institution. It has worked commendably in certain areas. The silent consent and mandate of the public to the media grants the latter absolute power to inquire and question the government action on the people’s behalf. However, electronic media has faced sever criticism for the misuse of power. In Pakistan the media production and publishing content is information and experiences that may provide value for an end-user/audience in specific contexts.
Military coups started to take place when politicians showed illegitimacy and corruption. But the military governments were not exactly good too. I am writing this piece to compare Ayub Khan’s era and Bhutto’s era. But to do that it is essential that all the social, political and economic aspects are considered with due regard. Only after analyzing all these aspects can we decide which era benefited Pakistan the most.
