Fahrenheit 451 is a futuristic society and a firefighter named Guy Montag. As a firefighter, Montag does not put out fires he started them buy burning banned books.
Montag has no second thoughts about what he is doing or why he is doing it until Clarisse. She changes Montag mind about the world and teaches him to appreciate the small things in life. This makes Montag rethink his job as a firefighter. Ray Bradbury shows conformity in futuristic America Through school and leisure. The children in the society are never taught anything in school hours. “Cram them full of non combustible data, chock them so damned full of “facts” they feel stuffed, but absolutely brilliant. The “teachers” ( really movie ) stuff the pupils with “knowledge” . doing them experience smart.
but they are never taught to think any of the information or organize their ain sentiment on affairs. “Do you know. we ne’er ask inquiries. or at least most don’t ; they merely run the replies at you.
bing. bing. bing. and us sitting at that place for four more hours of film-teacher” ( 29 ) .
In being taught not to think for myself. instruction supports conformity. In a similar manner.in the civilization that Montag lives in.
it is expected in everyone to take part in the people entertainment beginnings: mindless news stories and violent games. Parlor walls are made up of a level screen on a wall sometimes there were tvs on all 4 walls and sometimes there were only 1. In the story the number of TVs on your parlor walls is a reflection on how wealthy you are. Faber says. “The televisor is “real” .
It is immediate. it as dimension.The conformity in fahrenheit 451 is everywhere.
From how Montag actes before he meets clarisse. And the children in the society not being taught anything. To how Mildred and her friends are fixated on the Parlor walls.
Conformity is everywhere because the government makes it that way.
