In modern day we rely heavily on technology, and the society is saying they have learned from our mistakes and learned knowledge is more powerful and useful than technology. One more quote that shows futuristic setting and proves the theme is on page 90. “At the end, the showing takes us back to how things were before the society. How things would be again if the society fell.”(Condie 90). This quote helps us to understand that it’s in the future, by saying there were many societies before theirs.
The case of Keeling and Hars, brought about a great debate. Intellectual property may involve the creations of the mind, such as inventions; literary and artistic works; designs; and symbols, names and images used in commerce. It is very important to know and understand laws as it relates to intellectual property.

First, technology has improved our communication. With the help of mobile technology we are able to talk to our friends and relatives who are living far from us. The article, “In Defense of Technology”, by Andrew O Hagan states “ Communication was usually a stab in the dark: you might find someone to talk to about your favorite book, but more likely you wouldn’t, unless you moved to New York or took to wearing a sandwich board”(4). In other words, Hagan believes, it was hard for one to find someone to talk to back in the days. Technology has changed all of that.
How a Utopia compares to present day In the novel Brave New World, by Aldous Huxley, we are presented with a society that is abnormal from our own modern day society because of their technological advancements and different life perspectives. Although our society and the “World State” are very different, Huxley relates the two worlds throughout the novel with several meaningful quotes. Social critic Neil Postman, in his “Six Assertions”, talks about many of the topics in Brave New World and whether or not they are relevant in today’s society. Postman shows this by providing quotes from the novel and those quotes are compared to our society in the following essay. Some of the assertions that Postman discusses are technology advancement and

In the society where Eckels is living, humans are able to travel across time instead of being inevitable to get out of this present moment.

Being able to predict the future is fascinating yet scary. Ray Bradbury was able to predict future events with a miniscule amount of information. This is fascinating because there is an abundant amount of technology in the world that can be used to hypothesize the likelihood of future events. Some critics argue that the society described in Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451 is incredibly similar to today’s society through individuality, however, society in Fahrenheit 451 is different than our society through employment and the education structure. After researching Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451, the educational structure elucidates the difference between society within the novel and society of today.
