He feared and conveyed his disappointments that some officials were taking advantage of the whole situation and were purposely prolonging the fighting for reasons of profit. Even though he expressed his dissatisfaction towards the overbearing cost of nuclear weapons, he made a blissful announcement that war has been avoided. He also stated that a well-balanced progress toward his ultimate goal has been made, but warned the Americans to be watchful and productive against the fight of communism and worldwide major problems for the betterment of the country as a
Censorship imposed on illegal books in Fahrenheit 451 is a symbol of the past and current America; the novel is a fiction representation of the state of the nation and how the government maneuvers itself through the social life of its citizens. Throughout history media contents including books, plays, songs, and other media have been routinely and legally banned or censored in America. In 1873, for instance, Comstock law was passed banning the circulation of materials deemed immoral or obscene ("Censorship in the United States"). In Fahrenheit 451, just like in real life, the ban is imposed on books deemed to cause public harm. When Captain Beatty is explaining to Montag about the background of burning books, he stated, “Colored people don’t like Little Black Sambo.
The government does not want people to be unhappy and worried so they burn all of the books. Montag burns the books and houses with books in them. Houses are fireproof but the inside memories are all destroyed. He does this to make others happy but Montag himself is not happy. Through Ray Bradbury’s book Fahrenheit 451 Montag and his wife Mildred symbolize different
The whole plot being that firemen create fires in the story yet in reality they get rid of them, that is very pessimistic. In the book firemen burn books and any houses with books in them to prevent anyone from broadening their horizons and going against the government. A similar thing happened in Nazi Germany which was an extremely negative time in history. Another example would be, in the beginning when Montag is talking to Clarisse and she asks "are you happy?" Montag is really not sure because he later realizes that he really wasn 't happy when she asked that.
Fahrenheit 451 is very different from modern day society. In fahrenheit 451, the firemen go to people 's houses when they get a call that someone has books. Firemen rush to their houses and they search for the book’s if they find any they burn the books as well as the house because they don 't know if there’s anymore hidden “The whole house is going up said beatty”. Fahrenheit 451 porches are illegal, as well they 're not allowed to have their books out in the open and if they do and if anyone even spots them their house goes up in flames. However, in modern day society, we are allowed to let our books sit on a shelf out in the open with being reported.
A key part would be how Larson intensively wrote about the dirty antics of the politicians. For example, Alexander Hamilton trying to prevent Adams from becoming Vice President. He willingly put words into Adams’ mouth to make him seem unfit for the position. This has ultimately changed my perspective on Alexander Hamilton. I thought of him as a very key figure in history because of the Revolutionary War not because of his sabotage of political affairs.
The lenient law shows that unhappiness and fear is what they strive for in society. Besides that, firemen were able to burn people along with their books and house. For our society, firemen don’t cause the burning, they usually put out fires but firemen in this society makes the fire and intentionally harm people who refuse to light their books on fire. Once again, this shows that the society can be way too lenient. Furthermore, lots of people tend to die wether it is on accident or purpose.
George Orwell is quoting that power is all that Winston needs, but power is not what he has to destroy Big Brother. Winston's determination does not fail to keep him from protesting against the party. O’Brien begins to show images of Winston body to him to push his limits. Winston continues to blame him for the way his body looks due to the beating and torturing. O’Brien then states to Winston, “This is what you accepted when you set yourself up against the party.
Thus they will believe in the government for creating a society of peace. “If I tried to get away with it,” said George,”then other people’d get away with and pretty soon we’d be right back to the dark ages again, with everybody competing against everybody else. You wouldn’t like that, would you?” (line 68-70 Vonnegut) The government is trying to make it seem like people not being equal is bad. They want the public to think that being different or special creates problems so if everyone is the same it would be easy to create a method to subdue society if a problem happened to arose. If someone was different or special it would be harder to change someone to make sure no one would follow in their suit.
To have productive people we need morals in our world. Censorship keeps us respectful of each other in order to be productive. Censorship creates safety In society hall Johnson author of “Censorship of War Casualties,” the author states “Americans are morally responsible for the wars and the war crimes controlled in their names.” By censoring our society we can have less wars and create morals. Hall also says.” We need to not give the news media so much info on war”. When we allow the news media to report our war tactics and give out info that destroys society and morals.
