Ishmael finds himself doing things that he never expects himself to be doing. In this story he depicts external conflicts of his environment and how it creates internal conflicts within himself. Most of the conflicts in this story are considered to be internal and mental which are a direct result of the external conflicts that are involved with his environment. “I am pushing a rusty wheelbarrow in a town where the air smells of blood and burnt flesh” (Beah Chapter 2, p. 18) These external conflicts include life in poverty, running from the soldiers, and eventually becoming a soldier himself. Life in poverty is hard enough without having to worry about a civil war in your country, let alone around the corner from your village.
Anyhow, the way a society runs can lead to create disorder in the world. In the texts Lizzie Bright and The Buckminster Boy by Gary Schmidt and The Outsiders by S.E Hinton both authors deal with the main idea surrounding societies that demonstrates that a well ordered society is not important to a smooth running world because it causes violence, discrimination, and inequality. Having a well ordered society creates acts of violence. In a well ordered society there is a government that designates laws to maintain peace, rules include acts of violence.

What is Social Disorganization? Social disorganization is a criminology theory that suggests the reason for crime and delinquency is due to the lack of resources in communities. When resources like churches and programs for the youth are not present in the community it can lead to a lack of morals that can cause criminal activity and delinquency.

When law enforcement is not present in a community it gives the people in the community the thought that law enforcement does not care what happens to the people in their community.
The polluted world is shown through the panning shots of the streets portraying a dismal world with the no sign of the natural world. It is constantly raining possibly representing the depressed emotional disposition of the people who are trapped in this urban jungle. The inhabitants are always wearing coats and umbrellas which are used as a symbol of protection of the environment. These dismal settings and unnatural ways highlight the negative consequences that occur when humanity ignore their responsibility to the unnatural world and the environment. Scott shows his growing concern that this will be the future of humanity if we continue thriving on consumerism and economical growth and neglect the natural world.
Zubair Abedin Block 4 The theme of the story Fahrenheit 451 written by Ray Bradbury is censorship. They live in the future where books are banned and the people are uneducated. If people have books in there possession then they’re in danger of getting in trouble by the authority. The main character of this book is Guy Montag who is a fireman, but in the future firemen start fires instead of putting them out, they start the fires in places that have books in them. Government should not be able to make personal decisions for society because it disrupts lifestyles and ultimately does not benefit people.
Living as a Dystopian Society The Oxford English Dictionary defines dystopia as “an imaginary place or condition in which everything is as bad as possible.” Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451 is a society that lives in a dystopia. There is no individuality or imagination. Everyone is expected to be the same. The lack of literature creates a society without intelligence. In one review the author states, “In an important scene in Ray Bradbury's novella Fahrenheit 451, Captain Beatty (the leader of the firemen tasked with burning books in a futuristic, dystopian society) articulates for Montag (the protagonist) the fundamental idea underpinning the laws and norms of this oppressive and ignorant society” (Brown).
It is described as the Monster because it can not be controlled. The Monster is not human so it can not be destroyed, and it will destroy lives, families, and most important the land. “The bank is something else than men…every man in a bank hates what the bank does… The bank is something more than men… It’s the monster. Men made it, but they can’t control it.”(p.35). That is why the system is described as a Monster.
looked to cities as sources of danger. They are thought to lack strong ties that provide social control, they harbor subcultures with evil lifestyles, economic fortunes are made and lost with little relation to Protestant virtue, sins of every sort are available, laziness and hypersexuality replace hard work, and mind-altering substances steal control of people's lives. Many of these are anxieties about groups thought unable to support themselves economically.
Next Morrison takes away spaces, which adds to the chaos and sense of panic, “Hereisthehouseitisgreenandwhiteithasareddoor” (7). This primer seems to declare that it does not fit into the parameters of the coming characters’ lives. The book suggests this type of family could not possibly exist in the black culture, and the stories that follow illustrate the ways
