Responsibility Over Living Sigmund Freud once said, “Most people do not really want freedom because freedom involves responsibility and most people are frightened of responsibility.” This quote in my opinion means that even though most people say they want freedom to do whatever they want, they really don’t because they’re too scared to accept responsibility for their actions.

Beatty had known about the secrets Montag kept and while trying to misguide him, the shy acquaintance had been whispering in Montag’s ear guiding him to ignore Beatty. (STEWE-2) The alarm voice had went off letting Beatty, Montag and the rest of the firemen know that there was a house to be burned.

The book i am responding to is Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury. In Fahrenheit 451, there is a particular event in the book that rather shocked me. In section 1, from pages 33 to 37, Montag and his fire crew get a call to an elderly womans house in the middle of the night to burn her books.
