Humanity’s Separation from Nature The gray unhappy air surrounds civilization as the pollution of human creations and discoveries tears us further and further from our natural beginnings. Nature no longer encompasses us with sunshine and beauty, left alone we become monsters in our outlook and attempt to take control of power we were never meant to have. With the use of drugs and the constant striving for upmost power to create living from dead we have destroyed our natural roots. Natural processes slowly disappear from the world around us, in Brave New World the Director says; "Bokanovsky's Process is one of the major instruments of social stability!" (1) This is a process where people are artificially made and conditioned into certain parts of society.
The separation of government form people takes place gradually and so intensely. Each step is disguised as a temporary measure or associated with patriotic allegiance, or with real social purpose. The Nazis used crises and reforms are to occupy the people that they can not see the slow motion of the government growing. The pride of or country, with more and more bearing down from authority figures is surely a bad sign of things yet to come. Theres no way of arresting a innocent person and the only power government has on society is to crack down criminals.

Once it becomes easier to manipulate the person freely, the government in the case of Fahrenheit 451 is capable to engineering a whole society as they please. The second result that censorship of society and the banning of books brings is increasing the pleasure and happiness which objects bring, rather than the emotional connection between mankind. This in turn turns the happiness to be very shallow and short-lasting, increasing and stimulating the economy but severely hurting the human mind. Our last result that will be discussed in this essay is the way censorship changes the whole society. The immense diversity of books that we each read as an individual make us unique in many different ways that we cannot
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.

Clayton DeMond Ms. Smith AP English 12 03 Nov 2010 Is suicide justifiable? Do you think you would end your life just to escape a world which you dont believe in? Now this it may seem a little extreme to some, but to those in Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451 view it as an escape from the lies and greed that controls their world. The reason for such extreme actions to take place is because of society which on the outside seems like a perfect utopia but on the inside of this society we find a monotonous, uneducated, "dead" state of existence, which promotes depression. In this "perfect" society suicide is much much more common than it is in our world.
However, Blade runner has very limited amounts of nature and shows a industrialized and scientifically advanced society thus the distinctive differences between Frankenstein and blade runner reveal more about the connections between them. Fears in society will always alter as time progresses however. This idea is further exemplified through the symbolism of Tyrell’s oversized glasses. The fear that humanity is blind toward the danger of the ultimate extinction of any form of nature is expressed in Shelley’s novel thus blade runner mimics the fear and effectively becomes a warning toward this issue. Hence forth, both texts effectively delve into the negative connotations that could come of the obsessive pursuit of
The United States is the strongest government in the world and the media puts it down so very hard. It has gotten to the point where everything that you hear on the news and proclaimed by the media is in a negative manner.
