People still out here getting hit my cars and still overdosing and sleepy pills.
The unfortunate Truth.
Chief approves of this message
Very well thought comment.
This ain’t it
We have a lot more screens than people
Most people don’t read books anymore unless forced too. People still do drugs and stuff like that.
That’s true, a lot of people nowadays would rather watch it then have to read it.
One thing similar from the book is that both worlds are very dangerous in their own rights. People in Fahrenheit 451 worry about firefighters when we worry about getting robbed or killed
Frick ur right!!😬😥
One connection between the society in Fahrenheit 451 and our society is that we are more distant because of technology.
I agree most people don’t want to talk and would rather text.
I agree this is true.
Our society is starting to turn into more of a technology dominant place. So like all of the TV’s that are in Fahrenheit 451. Also no one really communicates in Fahrenheit 451 and I feel like our society is becoming that way also.
Yes. I do agree with you on this on
We are dominated by screens.
I agree with you
People have more screen in there house than people in a house. People are trying to ban books. The government tries to control us. It’s hard to talk to people face to face because they are always on there devices.
You are right. There are more screens than people in most houses.
Yes it is harder to talk to people now days.
I agree. Many of the issues that the society in the novel has we have too.
People do have a lot of screens
One connection between our society and the society in Fahrenheit 451 is people wanting to get rid of books. Everyone is also so involved in their screens that they don’t pay attention to anything around them.
Yes this is true. People don’t like books.
They pay attention to the screens around them
One very prominent thing in Fahrenheit 451 that relates to our world today is the seashells that Mildred always has in her ears. She is completely oblivious to everything around her most of the time and it is very hard for Montag to carry on a conversation. This is happening today because we always see people glued to some type of screen or walking around with earphones in their ears because there is always something better then what’s going outside of that.
I agree! We are to connected to the internet.
Clarisse has a bunch of theories about how the world used to be and how they’re lying to them. It’s just like a bunch of conspiracy theories, everyone has a different take on everything.
Yes. Yes they do
One thing that is the same is that many people don’t care about books
In the book more people have screens then people in the household as we do nowadays. When Montags wife keeps wanting more walls (TVs) and they already have 3. She would rather have more TVs then talk to her husband.
Gotta love technology.
That’s very true. Most people nowadays spend more time with screens than with other people.
One of the connections between the story and our society are that we care more about electronics than socializing with people in the same room as us. This is like how Mildred cares more about her TV’s than her husband and we text people in the same room as us.
This is very true
Nice job paying attention, Cayden Caywood.
People in our society use sleeping pills and overall have a drug abuse problem. Mildred uses medications to fall asleep and often takes a dangerous amount of pills without even realizing it. Both societies also have far too many suicides.
This is true
Well said I agree chayla
The society from Fahrenheit 451 and our current society are very similarly. We both suffer from drug overdose, suicide, and always connected to the internet.
You are right
The content about being connected is so true.
I agree that we have the same similarities
Drug over dose, screens in each room, and cars.
In Fahrenheit 451 there are police forces that help keep the town safe, just like our society. Although in the book the firemen are very different then our firefighters today.
People in our society still have depression problems and over dose on medication just like montags wife almost did.
I thought of this idea too, good job.
I agree it’s becoming a bigger issue.
A connection between our society and the books is drug abuse. People die from using pills all the time or depression. They are all starting to notice how unhappy they are in both society’s.
One connection between the society’s today is that we have a lot of technology that they have. They have TVs for wall(we don’t have that but we have more screens than people in our houses) . We also have the ear pods.
I agree with you we have a lot of the same tech
Well said I agree
We are both trying to better our community in certain ways. In Fahrenheit 451 they burn books; we spread knowledge. Teaching children the difference between good and bad, this differs in our world and Fahrenheit 451. Firefighters are still serving their community.
They’re technology is similar to ours and they deal with the same problems we are with that technology. For example, they have those shell speaker things and we have earbuds.
More distance with each other, and suicide
The technology is similar to ours. And people are distance just like our society because of the technology. Face some of the same problems.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
