The result is a society where fanatical, destructive behavior, such as the firemen's book-burning, flourishes. People in Montag’s society have been conditioned to think the suggestion of reading is a laughable subject as expressed in the quote, “Do you ever read any of the books you burn?’ He laughed. ‘That's against the law!’ ‘Oh. Of course.’” (8). The people in Montag’s society are banned by their government to read anything that has any philosophies or intellectual thought.
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.

For more examples of the media pursuing the negative in the culture, such as a report on the information bulletin in 2006 that stated a twenty three year old man died and a dozen hospitalized after overdosing at a rave. Even though this sounds tragic, notice that this rave held over fifteen thousand people, and less than twenty were hospitalized from drug abuse, and around seventy were caught with ecstasy. A most hypocritical discovery is that society promotes evens such as
Firstly, there would be no longer any constant worry of second hand smoke, which would reduce the probability of innocent deaths. Secondly, businesses’ that involve any social interaction would no longer have people smoking during breaks and returning reeking of smoke and disgusting their customers. Thirdly, no single person would start smoking because they would not want to be sent to the island. Fourthly, the government would make a higher profit based on the distribution of cigarettes that they would sell to the island by setting extremely high taxes on them. Fifthly, the air and the environment would be much cleaner and society would have one less thing to worry about.
Premier John Brumby is big in the spotlight at the moment after announcing that there will be a ban on entering a nightclub, pub or bar from 2am onwards. In reaction to this ban, some members the public see this ban as just outrageous while others believe t hat brumby is just out of ideas. In two articles, locals Lachlan Brown and Damien R express both their view on the subject.

Even the smallest amount of rainbowsoda can lead to addtion and negative effects on one's health and distort oneself To prove that rainbow soda leads to addiction, We can look at Baker Hans when he thought" Alittle taste could hardly do any harm"(2410). Hans was also under the impression that a small taste would not but harmful however, after he drank he he thought i decided i would never part with this bottle and i would refill it as it was empty"(241) This shows that even the most dimunitive amount or rainbow soda in any amount can definitely lead to addiction.

Michael believes that some anti-smoker groups won’t give the product a chance because “they find it difficult, if not impossible, to endorse a behavior that looks like smoking, even though it is literally saving people’s lives”.
