States Abuse of Technology and Its CataclysmicRepercussions in Society: A Critical Scrutiny of Ray Bradburys Fahrenheit 451

Dr. Ali Mohammadi

Fahrenheit 451 tells the story of a futuristic world in which people are constantly plugged in to various sources of entertainment. The walls of their houses are actually enormous TVs; newspapers are dead and books are illegal. It sounds like a pretty monstrous place to live. There's plenty of information, just no knowledge. There is more free time than ever, but no time to really think. Besides, there are a plethora of things that really feed people; nevertheless, real connection with other people has been shut out by rampant materialism. The result is a society that is blind to its own ignorance and being destroyed by it. This research depicted the above from a critical perspective considering the characters, plot, context and symbols. Overall, it was concluded that though appealing they might look, technology and media have been used by some seemingly democratic political systems to instil a very particular ideology and mind-set in the public which would culminate in a dystopian society however modern it may appear.
