While reading the book Farenheit-451 we discovered that Bradbury seemed to have for-shadowed certain aspects of the future. During the book the reader may notice that bradbury hits at certain topics, such as overdose and the quality of life, and conformity along with being careful when speaking to someone. Which is why Farenheit-451 has a powerful message for readers in our world today. The article “OD kills 'Diff'rent Strokes' star Dana Plato” and the book both discuss the topic of overdose. An overdose is when you consume too much of a certain item like sleeping pills or painkillers.

In the professional world, opinions can be dangerous. Holding a controversial opinion can damage your reputation; stating an opinion that contradicts your boss 's can leave you vulnerable; voicing your opinion at the wrong time can make you appear foolish. The old adage attributed to Abraham Lincoln goes, "It 's better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt," and in the realm of business, that seems to be the truth. At the start of the 2016 NFL preseason, Colin Kaepernick, quarterback of the San Francisco 49ers, decided to take a seat during the National Anthem. His gesture during the first preseason game went unnoticed until the third preseason game.
I guess on day two, I broke one of the tattoo artist commandments and asked if the “Tattoo Gun” was missing any parts. As soon as the words slipped through my lips, all four artists, who were in the shop that day stopped tattooing and piercing, looked at me and yelled: “IT’S A TATTOO MACHINE NOT A TATTOO GUN”! I felt my face get red and hot. It was like I insulted their God or something.
Thirty-six percent of adults between the ages of 18 to 25 in the U.S have at least one tattoo.

Modernization v.s. History For countless centuries, natives have walked on the soil that was soon to be called America. They were a culture that worshipped nature as it came, and respected creatures as equals. “In Standing Their Ground” by Mary Kate Frank, we learn that when foreigners first arrived on the East Coast, we didn’t show them the same level of respect. There’ve been hundreds of cases where the native American’s wishes were pushed aside and regarded as unimportant. Many years later, this old story is once more being repeated.
The straightforward element of the proslavery defense was that white people were better than colored people. This caused a huge argument and some people thought that there should be an upper class and a lower class. While others argued that it was good for society to have slavery and that without slavery, human cannot develop and that slaves should have to do the jobs of unskilled labor. People even had pro-slavery arguments that came from the bible saying that servants should obey their master.

Allison, You make an abundant amount of sound statements that I agree with whole heartedly. The justice system is comprised of many agencies as you mentioned, but it is the courthouse setting in which justice is administered. Within the courthouse there are several actors of those as mentioned by Neubauer “Judges, prosecutors, and defense attorneys are the most important actors in the courthouse. Defendants and victims are also important because they are the source of cases for the courts.” The individuals deemed the most important are those who administer and fight for justice be it any of your examples in which you state bring these actors of the courthouse together to ensure justice is achieved.
I believe there had never been a perfect justice system. No matter how complete and thorough a justice system is, once in a while, a wrong person is put in prison. This is due to a lot of factors, such as poor detective work and non-credible eyewitness' testimony, and that the court would allow it anyway. Also, some crimes just simply can't be solve due to lack of evidence. Nonetheless, wrongful convictions must have been reduced over the years, due to the application of advanced technologies.
