How Captain Beatty of Fahrenheit 451 Illustrates “The Mindset of Those Who Censor” Persis Karim said in The New Assault on Libraries, "Obviously, the danger is not in the actual act of reading itself, but rather, the possibility that the texts children read will incite questions, introduce novel ideas, and provoke critical inquiry." Set in the 24th century, Ray Bradbury’s book, Fahrenheit 451, depicts a society in which books have been outlawed by a government fearing an independent-thinking public. Enforcing this law through incineration of book material, homes, and even book owners is the duty of firemen, such as the Chief Captain Beatty, whose insidious personality makes him the quintessence of an antagonist. However, his contradictions
Topic: This research proposal relates closely to the textbook, Garbology, Our Love Affair with Trash. Edward Humes discusses how current landfills are constructed to protect the environment from leachate in several chapters, but in Chapter 4, “The Last and Future Kingdom,” he writes about the dangers of landfills built before the 1990s (2013). Landfills built before the 1991 regulations are not required to install barriers that protect the groundwater from carcinogens. According to the American Cancer Society, prolonged exposure to carcinogens in the environment can lead to cancer ( “Known and Probable,”2017). Chapter 4 describes the horrific consequences of pre-1991 landfills.
#CATmageddon: A Rhetorical Analysis As Aristotle said: “Quitting smoking is rather a marathon than a sprint. It is not a one-time attempt, but a longer effort.” The Truth is a national campaign designed to inhibit the use of tobacco in American teens. The campaign is made by Truth Initiative formerly known as the American Legacy Foundation, a public health nonprofit group created in 1999 as a result of “the Master Settlement Agreement between U.S. tobacco companies, 46 U.S. states, the District of Columbia, and five territories. Truth produces television and online content to promote anti-tobacco messages” (Wikipedia). As a consequence of this settlement tobacco companies agreed to supply these states billions of dollars in perpetuity, and with part of this money these states decided to create a national public health foundation devoted to tobacco control which is nowadays called Truth
After the gruesome attacks of 9/11, the United States government passed a legislation called the Patriot Act in attempt to cut down on the terror attacks. This act gives the NSA, or National Security Agency, the ability to oversee our actions. The NSA’s approach to surveilling the population is obtaining the information by tapping into technology, such as phone calls, internet pages and searches, and viewing emails and texts. Thus, controversy has triggered due to the fact that these actions are unconstitutional, and much terrorism that remains. The NSA should be greatly altered because they invade the privacy of Americans, unlawfully goes against the constitution, and we lose our rights.

In the article Is Google Making Us Stupid by Nicholas Carr, published in, The Atlantic Monthly, Nicholas uses opinion based facts to defend his theory that this generation 's intelligence is being extinguished by the internet. His opinion towards our generation can be summarized by the term Juvenoia: “ the fear or hostility directed by an older generation toward a younger one, or toward youth culture in general” a term coined by David Finkelhor. This “fear or hostility” that Carr directs toward our generation is based on the beliefs and technology he grew up with. However, Carr bases his opinions on the comparison of our generation to his. This comparison being “research that once required days in the stacks or periodical rooms of libraries can now be done in minutes”(Carr par 3).
Fahrenheit 451 a novel written in 1953 by ray bradbury talks about a future american society. In the book bradburry shows us how technology can affect society and humanity.

While refuting Carr’s article, Steven Pinker makes a very good point and gives examples as to why Carr thinks that the internet is making us stupid. There will always be people that think a new idea or technology is destroying our so called society or world. For example, Pinker reminds us about “The decades of television, transistor radios and rock videos were also decades in which I.Q. scores rose continuously”. Ironically, the same thing can be said about the internet.
Many activists for gun control are reaching out try to ban guns in America. During the National Rifle Association (NRA) Press Conference on December 21, 2012, Executive Vice President Wayne Lapierre, speaks out against these activists and exclaims “The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.” After hearing about the tragedy, Lapierre wants every school in America to deploy a protection program to keep its students safe. The NRA faces criticism from all over America, about how they are to blame, but Lapierre puts the blame on video games and violent movies such as, “American Psycho” and “Natural Born Killers.” He questions, “Isn’t fantasizing about killing people as a way to get your kicks really the filthiest form of pornography?” Lapierre is willing to give training to both students and teachers on the proper precautions
