The theme for Captain Beatty is that he doesn’t want to question and think like Montag. Beatty believes in his mission to destroy books. He is a bit of paradox. If he really hates or don’t like books why does he know more about books than anyone else. He burns these book but he spends half his time quoting from them.
Fahrenheit 451 shows how people’s rights to free speech and media are essential to a free thinking society. Guy Montag, the main character, is a firefighter, which in his futuristic society means he burns books for the government because they are illegal due to the potentially controversial ideas they contain. Montag meets a girl named Clarisse, who helps him realize he’s not really content in how he’s living his life and in his relationships, which begins to change his viewpoint on the society’s standards. His wife Mildred, as well as the rest of society, are highly materialistic and shallow in their daily activities and interactions. Montag eventually steals a book during the fireman’s raid on a house, which leads him to seek out a man named Faber, who is an educated man, and helps encourage Montag to take steps to action.
This develops theme because this inner battle is what causes Guy to turn away from technology and realize the importance of literature. Unlike internal conflict external conflict is much more common in the book. Guy’s main conflict is with Beatty the captain of the fire station. Beatty realizes Guy’s change and is there the whole time taunting him trying to revert him back. This continues until the fire station gets a call from Mrs.Montag exposing Guy.

This epidemic is killing many people, this would normally be seen as a terrible thing but St. Cyprian does not value life in this world.
