The two stories, “Harrison Bergeron” and Fahrenheit 451, both have common themes. The common themes of the stories may include; our reliance on technology can spiral out of control if we let it, knowledge is joyful and painful, and that we can be confined by our own self-censorship. All of these themes are exhibited throughout both stories frequently. Whether it is as Montag has conflict with his wife over books or as Harrison’s parents forget right from wrong in their society.

Controlling anything or anyone other than ourselves can be very difficult. Trying to control the whole world is unquestionably almost impossible. However, in the books Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury and The Book by M. Clifford, the mission impossible was becoming possible.

The two characters control books.
For Fahrenheit 451, the theme of the book is that books are the ultimate weapons to humans. The black-out poem “Weaponary Book” was made based off the book theme and has many sensory-details to support. For example, in the poem it says, “The Good Lord knows, angry man and women ran to a book in these days on hell..” This quote shows that when people need help they run to a book for help. It is their aid in a time of war and is their weapon of choice to fight against the bad times.
The most worrisome problem in Fahrenheit 451 is the paucity of literature and critical thinking.

Nobody thinks for themselves, especially critically, and no one has different points of view, due to not reading books. In Fahrenheit critical thinking and literature is so bad you are thrown in jail and considered an outsider for doing these things.
