Fahrenheit no one missed them. Only one student
Fahrenheit 451 shows some very scary and reasonable revelations for what might happen to the future of this country and world. Ray Bradbury talks of nuclear wars, parlor televisions, and the censorship of books. Bradbury talks of the country having two nuclear wars.
Then all of the people in the city have full wall televisions that enclose them during their off time. The people in the city just sit around and watch TV, they fidget and look nervously, when the TV is off.This shows what is already happening with kids as they come home and watch TV and play video games all day. Society is also banning books, because it offends one group of people. Schools are banning books, because they offend parents.
Some of these books that are being banned have a strong literature value. When newspapers disappeared no one missed them. Only one student signed up for drama class, showing how when people dont have to go or need to get an education they dont. It is very easy for people to get sucked up in electronics and they become automatons with little emotions.
If the school board wants to ban Fahrenheit 451 they would be making an irrational decision based on one parents concern. The book has a good educational value and shows some good and bad revelations toward the future of society. To ban the book would be the exact same as burning the book.
