Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury emphasis his belief on censorship and how the future society will be if authority controls the daily aspect of life. Ray Bradbury does this by not allowing anyone to own or read a book, because the society believes that books provide the citizen with unnecessary and false thoughts, if the person is caught with books your whole house is burned and then the individual will be incarcerated. Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451 expresses the dangers of censorship through limiting the citizens access to knowledge, removing Constitutional Rights, and establishing a realistic allegory similar to today’s society. There are many dangers how censorship limits citizens access to knowledge in many ways. One danger that people could face is not knowing what we see on the news or in the newspaper’s is actually true, and what people say just to cover themselves up or make someone else look good in the person’s eyes.
Censorship is a way of control. Censorship is used to control the social interaction of the public with the media. Such a censorship can be directed to various medias if the media is judged to be either immoral, blasphemous, obscene, unpatriotic, radical or seditious. In the novel, Fahrenheit 451, the government prohibited and burned books; the public is denied access to and the use of books the government deemed as objectionable or promoted individuality. The public is only authorized to access, keep and read rule books, trade journals and the three-dimensional comic books, any other books were subjected to burning.
These books and his other works shows that his writing style can be risqué and to some, distasteful. He writes about hard hitting topics and he does not sugar coat the characters’ true feelings. Additionally, some parents at Glenrock, Wyoming disagreed with the passages in the book Flowers for Algernon; the parents surprisingly compared the book to pornography magazines such as Playboy and the Hustler (Munley ¶ 4).

Another reason they outlawed the flag is because it wasn’t showing any respect for people that fought in a war and got no respect for people that died. Also, people want to have it down because there was starting to be fights about the discussion of the flag being banned or being back up. Also people are also wanting it banned because it has been causing too much trouble in places that started to have.

As the story progresses, Hale is shown to have guilt associated with his actions and this is clearly displayed in his cry of gult towards Danforth, “There is blood on my head! Can you not see the blood on my head! !” (133) . This is the climax of Hale’s realization that many of the accusations were fabricated, and the whole problem in Salem was never true in any sense. This leads to Hale feeling extremely guilty for pushing trials in Salem against people who were innocent, even though he did not know it at that time.
In the play, the people of Salem lose their heads in light of the fact that they are afraid for different reasons, for example, getting charged or slaughtered. Since they are afraid, they fall for the senseless stories made up by others. Much like the Red Scare, individuals were accused and persecuted because they believed in rumors which were not true. The vast majority of the times, hysteria hits us hard and we forget how to deal with it, and turn on an convenient getaway. Miller uses Hale's change to demonstrate that people are willing to do anything to save themselves.

There was widespread cry that the Tuskegee study was outrageously immoral and cruel, even deceiving towards the victims. The HEW declared the study "ethically unjustified" (Heintzelman). There was strong public opinion not only at the time of the halt of the experiment, but afterwards, also. The Libertarian Party demanded that politicians and all people responsible for the experiment be prosecuted ("About the USPHS Syphilis Study"). Additionally, there was — and still is today — ample mistrust of the government and doctors by blacks even after the study
