Technology is known for its quick adaption and the new devices made to quench human activity. That is by depending too much on technology and forsaking human contact, which results in censorship and control over human thoughts. In addition, book burning embodies an element of censorship since it usually triggers from cultural, religious, or political oppositions.

The theme of censorship is very important because it strives to combine all the events happening in the novel.

Bradbury implies that the progression in technology will only lead the next generation into an ignorant stupor.
You are correct that blame would kill creativity in the tech industry, because the industry thrives off of taking risks to shorten latency on projects or to try something nobody knows they need yet. 2I also concur that there needs to be an objective devil’s advocate, to make sure there isn’t just change for the sake of change.
