When human beings castigate authors of America’s past on a cool autumns day (Chronographia), they are condemning the olden days itself. How can humanity try to discredit the authors without additionally discrediting the olden days they document? One of the crystal clear actions in this tale is when young Washington's hacking goes unseen. For what reason doe the haters have to want to discredit it? An individual may remark, "The plantations slaves would have noticed his hacking."
Each country, especially the United States, had an almost isolationistic view of their role in the world. Today, however, we face the challenge of enemies who do not think rationally and will die for what they think is the greater good, so the view of seclusion is not longer valid. The suicidal attitude of these new adversaries makes these types of people’s actions very hard to predict and track which leads to a danger that is unpredictable and around which we cannot devise a defensive plan. Another idea is that the civilized world believes that the economically developed countries take care of the less developed countries. In an article written by James G. Pradke called “Idealism vs. Realism: a Modern Approach to Capitalism Vs. Socialism,” dated April 16, 2010, he quoted Merriam-Webster’s dictionary (2010) which “claims that realism dismisses idealization and presents a theory which focuses on concern for fact or reality while rejecting
The Constitution provides citizens of the United States with liberty and equality, meaning we are free within society from wrongful restrictions put on us by authority figures. In the movie “V for Vendetta,” the people have no liberty or equality. For instance, in the United States, there is only a curfew for people under the age of 18 because by our law, you are not an adult until you are 18. But in this movie we watched everyone has a curfew, which doesn’t make them free. Also in this movie, the authorities enforcing the curfew were not professional at all; in fact they tried to rape the woman who was out past curfew.
This prediction calls for a bleak future that does, in fact, draw parallels with censorship in modern society. Bradbury portrays technology as a destructive force against morals, communication, and relationships. In Fahrenheit 451, the citizens are consumed with technology. They only discuss superficial matters, and sit entranced by the state-controlled televisions and radios (Hamblen 819). Ray Bradbury’s piece evaluates the effect that technology has on people and society.
Either way, censorship is an important and controversial topic in today’s society. In the novel Fahrenheit 451, Ray Bradbury sets a story in the future where books are burned in an attempt to try not to stir or offend anyone. They want people to remain indifferent and not know any better. Ray Bradbury feels that the censoring of everything is wrong. We cannot cover up the challenges of the world in attempt to hide all of the negatives.
