Montag has a personal revolution; he realizes the dangers of restricting information and intellectual thought. Ironically, Fahrenheit 451 is one of the most banned books in American schools. The book was seen as evil for ideas like opposing the suppression of freedom by parties that presumed they had all the answers. Books such as Fahrenheit 451, 1984, Brave New World, The Giver, and The Hunger Games have been banned in schools, and they all explore the themes of suppressing freedom, information, and intellectual thinking. Prohibiting these books will only lead less thought; it will lead to the ultimate demise of society.
Like the reporters and camera men at the time, this book provides in great detail what atrocities occurred during the war. “Tim O’Brien’s The Things They Carried is a montage of graphic scenes.”(pen.org). Because of its graphic violence and abundant use of profanity, The Things They Carried has been banned and challenged throughout the United States. In Troup, Texas 2016, a mother of an AP English student claimed that the book was “complete garbage, trash” and that it contains “nothing…that will benefit [students] physically, emotionally — mentally, morally, spiritually to be used as an educational tool.” (cbldf.org). Because of this challenge to the book, the principal decided that all questionable content regarding student curriculum will be disclosed to parents beforehand.
An example from the book is, “A Jew was henceforth forbidden to own gold, jewelry, or any valuables.” (page 10). Article 10 is broken because their property was taken away from them, and they aren’t able to own property afterward. The last right that was broken was Article 18. Article 18 is about the freedom of thought, conscience and religion. An example of this is, “ Every Jew had to wear the yellow star.” (page 11).
However, not having any civilization around you puts you at great risks, including not having anyone around incase emergency strikes, which is exactly what happened to Chris. Again, this tends to make someone believe that he would know that, and it’s because he does. Being in the top of your class for high school and college does not come out of nowhere, and common sense would tell someone that it’s not a good idea to be alone in the middle of the final frontier for months on end. That’s why inside of The Hunger Games, the teenagers selected are put in there so that they die. Given, the games never last several months long, but it shows that when put into extreme environments, you will more than likely find struggle in surviving for very
In our society, polygamy is rigorously forbidden, it is illegal in all the fifty states of our country. It is extremely important to keep it this way. People should not have more than one partner, let alone legal children from different people. Even back in the day, this was illegal and I highly doubt that someday it is going to change. There is no way that The U.S culture accepts polygamy as a normal thing.
Books were burned as well. (Doc 6). These are all examples of the denial of human rights. People were basically no longer allowed to be them self or keep their identities. Pol Pot took away the right to basically watch television and read the newspaper, down to even having an education.

Depending on the believe that each person follows, death could be the end of your persona or the release of our soul to a better place. For generation the thought of death have been a tabu. All over the globe people are afraid of the word, and try to divorce themselves from every topic related to it.

Texting and driving is a big problem in our society. In the U.S. alone about 32,000 people are killed and two million injured in crashes every year. More than ninety percent of vehicle crashes in the U.S. happen because of distracted driving (Kalra and Paddock 1). Such as texting or any other form of distracted driving.

There has always been an uproar on whether we should ban guns or not. Paul Waldman wrote a passage on how he is for banning guns. Even with multiple pros on banning guns, there is also numerous cons with banning guns, that is why Shiha Dalmia wrote an article against banning guns.
