Storyboard Text

  • Allusion of a Perfect Society
  • Strict Government Control
  • You must listen to me!
  • Citizens Must Conform
  • Bradbury uses this element of a dystopia to show that the people in his society did not see anything wrong with the way that they were living. This element shows that everything in a society runs smoothly until someone begins to question it.
  • Protagonist Realizes Problems with Government/Way of Society
  • "Maybe books can get us half out of the cave. They might just stop us from making these same damn mistakes!" (pg. 102)
  • In Fahreheit 451 it is obvious that the government has a very tight grasp on how everyone lives. Firemen make sure that people do not have books and if they do not follow the rules they will get their house burned down.
  • Critisizes an Aspect of Our Current World
  • "School is shortened, discipline relaxed, philiosophies, histories, languages dropped, English and spelling gradually negelected, finally almost completely ignored." (pg.85)
  • Conforming to socieyis one of the biggest elements used in dystopian stories. In Fahrenheit 451 it is use to show the reader that everyone in Bradbury's society has been raised to have the same beliefs as everybody else. Even if people had different views that would not share them.
  • Society adapts a new form of government/system of belief
  • "We must all be alike. Not everyone born free and equal, as the Constitution says, but everyone made equal. Each man the image of every other; then all are happy, for there are no mountains for them to make them cower, to judge themselves against!" (pg.88)
  • Bradbury uses this trait of dystopia when he writes about how Montag realizes that maybe burning books isn't the right thing to do and may be making things worse. He uses this to give the reader a point of view that shows the errors in the society and why they need to be fixed.
  • Bradbury uses this trait when he mocks how our society is leaning away from books towards mindless entertainment. People begin to value pleasure over knowledge as shown in the quote above. He explains in the story that books disapeared because of the people, not the government.
  • Bradbury uses this when he writes about how this society is based upon the idea that people should be no better than each other in order to avoid conflict. Beatty states in the book that it was often the smart who were picked on, leading to a form of society where no one was smarter than the others.
