Oppressive Government Control
Everyone Is Not Happy
Oh no! She overdosed. But why?
The Government is very oppressive. They make fireman burn books because they don't want people to have the knowledge found inside books. So instead they just burn books to keep themselves higher than the people. They restrict people from thinking by making them watch TV and keep going so they don't get the option to think about life and if they are really happy.
In the story people drive their cars over and don't think about it twice. They have lost their caring for others and have dehumanized everyone else. Ray Bradbury does this to show how the rise of TV has made everyone worse off then how they were becoming because of it.
People in this society are so depressed that they are willing to overdose and kill themselves. The hospital is so used to this happening that they don't send a real doctor. The man who comes says there are like 10 overdoses everyday. This proves how depressed everyone is in this bookless society.
