On the other hand, Beatty and Faber are static characters, although they have different perspectives about the books, but their ideas are completely remain constant throughout the story. For example, Beatty believes that the books should be destroyed, and eliminated throughout the story. He thinks that having books will remove the happiness from the society, but Faber believes that the books are crucial and significant, and we shouldn’t be annihilated, and destroyed. He believes that are something in the books that are bigger than words.
(SIP-A) Montag is not willing to believe what the society says about books and is denying it. (STEWE-1) Even though Montag has read the books that he hid and does not understand them he still tries. “Here now, said Montag We’ll start over again, at the beginning” (Bradbury 65). Even though his society has said books are harmful he reads them and does not hesitate to read again, even though Beatty said to Montag books have nothing in them he still reads, he rejected his society and is not willing to believe what Beatty says is true. (STEWE-2) Montag realizes how the people of the society are so distracted from the world and sees how wrong it is.
(AGG) Many people believe that money will buy you happiness, but no matter how much money you spend, you will never get the true happiness you receive from people.

(TS) Ray Bradbury created a society full of materialistic people to warn the readers about the dangers of being overly focused on materials.
In order to live a successful life on their own, one must show a sense of responsibility. Jobs, schools, and even in relationships, people do not want someone that is willing to put it all on the line, but would rather weigh all their options and outcomes. On another note, one will normally see teenagers and young adults being the risk takers, while people never really witness the older people putting themselves in harm's way. People most likely see this because the older people are wiser, therefore have already experienced the exhilaration of living a “YOLO” life as well as the horrible events that must have transpired for them to learn their lesson. If one chooses to live a heedless life, sooner or later they will realize the mistake they
‘I’m much obliged but I couldn’t take any more work.” (Fitzgerald 83). This use of dialogue is a prime example of how Fitzgerald generates a conversation between Nick and Gatsby to give importance to this specific part of the book. Without this use of dialogue the readers would perhaps feel seem to feel lost in the story because they would not understand what will be going on in the book at that specific time. This piece of dialogue is important because it proves that Nick is socially responsible due to him rejecting Gatsby's offer for a job based on the fact that it is illegal. Nick
The article seems to stress that people are incapable of changing their habits on their own, but instead need to rely on someone or something else to make their decisions. As a reader, this lack of faith doesn’t convince me emotionally to side with Doody. Where does choice and responsibility come in? There must be a different solution that keeps responsibility and self-discipline in check. If Sarah wanted to wants to further convince me to take her side of things, she needs to pull on my emotional strings
Chappie faced many disappointments during his life, and yet he was still able to continue hoping that things would get better. This ability to hope for better redeems Chappie in the eyes of the reader. It is important to have this quality as Chappie starts off as a very unsympathetic character, but with his ability to continue moving forward, the reader is able to do the same with the character. The issue with categorizing Chappie as an anti-hero lies in the fact that he does not do anything that would make him a hero instead of the protagonist that he is. He isn't working for any goal or ideal at any point in the story.
Fahrenheit 451 Every so often people express a desire to be left alone and not bothered, except in fact people do need to be bothered. If no one in the world was bothered then it would be all about security and happiness, and then no one would know how to do the things they know how to do in today 's world. The world wouldn 't be the same if no one got bothered. In the book Fahrenheit 451 Montag and Faber were talking about how people today need to be bothered. If they are not bothered than the world would have been even worse than it is today.
Faber was Montag 's only ally in the book. His purpose was to help Montag bring back the books and to assist Montag in understanding everything about reading, including how to sneak books around. If the protagonist, had no one aligned with him the book wouldn 't have been as interesting because Montag probably would continue to question the government, but not talk to anyone about how he feels unhappy with the law and this society, or do anything to make that change. Since Faber was included in the novel he supports Montag and lets him feel like he 's not alone. “‘--Where did you--?’ ‘I stole it’ Faber for the first time, raised his eyes and looked directly into Montag 's face ‘You 're brave.’” (Bradbury, 76) Faber tells Montag about his
In the real world, society does something similar to this, just with opinions and not books. Society is so concerned about being politically correct , it silences people who have opposing opinions. Society can govern and police themselves most of the time. The pressure it can put on people to make them conform to it’s expectation is too much. Being too different is highly discouraged and the same is true
I said nothing.” This shows sometimes people do not want to conform but they are too afraid to speak out. This means Faber is actually choosing to conform to society even though unlike Mildred Faber has already been enlightened to the truth. When most people are born they conform to the ideologies of their parents and communities, they don’t choose to conform, however they can choose not to conform. In the beginning of Fahrenheit 451 Montag is a conformist who burns books for a living; however as the book progresses Montag begins to read books and his opinions on the way his society is changes. In Fahrenheit 451 Faber tells Montag “pity, Montag, pity.
In Henry David Thoreau’s Walden, Thoreau talks about his opinions on communications technology at the time and how he does not believe that it is good for people. Throughout the entire reading Thoreau talks about how people need to keep simple and how communications technologies are no exception to him. However, communications technologies of the times were steps forward in connecting people in ways that would not be possible otherwise. Thoreau talks about how he believes communications technology such as the post office and newspaper are unimportant and unmemorable. He believes that if we read of one unfortunate thing in a newspaper or letter then we do not ever need to read another ever, that news is just boring gossip and there is nothing
