This allows the population to drop by three, allowing for the triplets to be born. An onlooking painter watches this scene unfold and has a dramatic reaction, where now he wants the government to kill him, when he said earlier that he wanted his death to be from himself. This story can be very hard to summarize shortly, but all the details are crucial to understanding the main plot and themes. Based on my interpretation of the story, Kurt’s main theme (a reoccuring theme in many of his works) is that the government does not care about who you are, they see all of their people as pieces on a game board. In other words, you are seen just as a statistic to the government and nothing more.
“The search is over, Montag is dead; a crime against society has been avenged.” (Bradbury 142). In the end, the government couldn’t find Montag, but because everyone was watching the search for him on their TV’s, the government killed an innocent man pretending it was Montag. The society was glad Montag was dead, even though it wasn 't really him. In the book death happens frequently, and it 's enjoyable to them.

Bradbury additionally indicates that fear can be seen in literature found throughout the book. At last, the author expresses the importance that fear can be seen when the thought of trying new things comes to mind. To begin, the motif of fear, or lack thereof, demonstrates an adverse impact on the disastrous dystopian society through the characters false sense of security. This idea can be detected throughout the beginning of the book at the time when most of the society, including Clarisse, thought everything was normal. “Did it always use to be that way?” (Bradbury 27).
The Avox is also a strong example of both, restricted information and complete surveillance. The Capitol wants to scare people by making the “traitors” live but in a humiliating way. Cutting their tongues and making them slaves sends a message to all citizens of
And all because you are too scared to call it a Genocide because repercussions could develop. But you the United Nation have the power to change what happens. The Hutus are only killing because no one has a reason to stop them. They are killing neighbors, work partners, even family members are being killed. But why?
His massacre didn’t just hurt the kids or the future but it also killed the parents of the kids mentally as parents spend all their life wanting something good for their kids. I think the father who executed the massacre was similar to Oedipus. This comparison can be proven true using the thematic statement of Ignorance leads to the blindness of knowledge. In both the scenarios the subjects couldn’t see the truth cause it was blocked due to their blindness. The thing that blinded Oedipus was his hubris and the thing that blinded the father was the influence of a terrorist group on
In the movie it can be seen that the city of God is consists of the poor people being isolated from a good life and right security. Poverty prevails in the city of God and in fact poverty has weakened all the social structures in this city, involving the family. There is no social justice that can be seen. Killing, violence and danger are so rampant and thus have become customary because of the absence of law and the streets are ruled by violent gangs. These gangs who think of themselves as masters and leaders are the ones who provided the structure and status of the city of God.
“They took him screaming off to the asylum. Any man’s insane who think he can fool the government and us (page 33)”. Not only are the people afraid of the government, they are also afraid of each other. “Can’t trust people that’s the dirty part you and I and who else will set the fires?” (page 86). That is one of the reasons why there are never any rebellion in a dystopia
The world in this novel has fallen to shreds at the hand of technology and its unbreakable control over people. We live in a world now where we control the technology, while they live in a world that is controlled by the technology.

That part of their human nature has been stolen by the technological advances that have taken over their minds, so much so that people will try to get one another killed just for the television entertainment. They’ll turn in their neighbor and watch their house burn down because there is just no civility
One way he made sure of that was by using propaganda. Stalin ran a Totalitarian state, which deprived people of a free way of living. Under no circumstances did he allow people to critic the way he ran things because if they did they were to be executed or even arrested by his secret police. To control his people, Stalin used terror and violence. In severe circumstances, murder or brutal force was even used.
