For this reason, such leaks cannot be tolerated.”(cia.gov) Also, censorship helps protect people. During WWII, the government censored many different newspapers and news bulletins because they had appeals to the American people from Nazi leaders and Japanese leaders trying to manipulate the American people. The Government would restrict these news sources because they would decrease the American morale and make them want to end the war effort (Blankley). Censorship, in limited forms, is right and necessary The thing is, the censorship that is mentioned in the paragraph above isn’t the type of censorship that is in Fahrenheit 451. The censorship in Fahrenheit 451 is a completely different type of censorship altogether.
The people on Maple Street heard the sound of the roar and the flash of light, and they freaked out. They wonder what caused it. Some people assume it’s probably just a meteor, but some thought it’s an alien or some sort of dangerous creature. There were many great characters throughout the story. However, Charlie stood out the most because he keeps blaming people.
In the novel, propaganda, especially the government’s access to influence television, is used to spread “Government-approved truth”, this sometimes has nothing to do with, or reflect the actual events. In circumstances where the government feels threatened, they can use their access to propaganda, to influence all the citizen’s actions, minds, and feelings. The individuals in the society of Fahrenheit 451 had essentially been programmed to have a very short attention span. The government leaders were feared that Montag could be viewed as a revolutionary figure; so after he killed Chief Beatty, and escaped the city; the political leaders were able to show, on every television, Montag being killed. Because the government had influence in the television, on every television screen they were able to display Montag being killed, in a fictional, very controlled pursuit.
(Vonnegut 1) The government had a lot of regulations on the people in this society and because of that they lost their freedom to think for themselves and could only think what the government would allow them to think. They justified this because it made it so that no one would be better than any other person. They valued equality over individuality. In Fahrenheit 451 the government restricts the ownership and reading of books.
In fact, it affected people, the country it was built in, and civilization. Nature doesn 't like walls, neither do people, mostly. That 's why the wall of Berlin was tore down, because it didn 't do anything but destroy the government and people of that country. If people were meant to be isolated, then maybe a wall would be the answer, but people deserve freedom. Maybe now, we the people know not to ever build a wall to seperate anybody from anything.
This message appeared in both the 1960’s version and the 2003 remake of “Monsters Are Due on Maple Street.” In both teleplays, there is a current state of distrust in the community outside of the movies. In the 1960’s version, there was a bright flash of light in the sky which cut the power to the whole street, Tommy then persuaded everyone into thinking it was an alien invasion, from there chaos struck loose. In the 2003 remake, identical things happened except the people were scapegoated for terrorism, but still the street fell apart and there was no act of terrorism. All in all, it is easy to see that no monsters ever invaded Maple Street, instead it was only
The involvement of the media compromised the access of witnesses, as fewer people were willing to be involved in the public scandal by testifying. Additionally, the media got into the investigation by asking questions about the events before the murder. The National Enquirer, for instance, took a different angle to investigate the case; however, by doing this, the media almost made it impossible for proper investigations to be held by the criminal justice system. Ogletree Jr. maintains that the press failed terribly by trying to assume what the lawyers or witnesses thought at different times of the trial, which was a fail (Ogletree). Consequently, there should be a level of protection from the media.
So the people of Maple Street listened to Dylan and burned down the house they thought were the tourists. In the end, it was the military trying a social experiment to see what normal citizens would do in case of a power outage. In the same way, the citizens in both videos had a unique fear. In the original video the fear of the power outage was because of aliens. In the 2003 video the fear was because of tourists.
However the fascist system was short lived because of how inefficient each dictator used their system. Prime example is Hitler he was able to establish a strong dictatorship however he was not able to prepare his country to fight against the rest of the world due to his misuse of propaganda. Although showing much promise fascism is not a form of government that can be used to govern a country due to the fact that in all cases of its use it was short lived. The rise of Fascism shows that the power of people’s identity can be manipulated easily by influencing the people. This then allows one to show the people who everyone else is in a new light, or the way that the dictator sees fit.
Although, they are the values in society and those values can change, the general idea that controlling everything by yourself might be one that could require some reconsideration. This is something that Hitler, along with Oedipus and Jocasta did not do. They felt the desire for an unhealthy amount of power, it went over their heads and created their
