As we all know Ray Bradbury Author of Fahrenheit 451 made many predictions as to what this day and age would be like He was right in many cases including speed entertainment and the mindlessness of people He predicted that nobody would speak more than a couple of words at a time to a certain person That makes the people seem mindless because they dont talk or ask questions Ray also predicted that people would drive by places so fast that the y dont even know what they passed That has not quite happened in out tome yet but I believe it is coming One of the final things that Bradbury talks about in his book is entertainment slowly but surely people are starting to stay indoors and do such activities so they dont have to go outside Being obsessed with entertainment which is probably the most obvious aspect of this book is very important in our world and Montags made up society The characters rarely have friends and if they do they just go over each others houses to watch television Bradbury makes this clear when Mildred says to Montag I went to Helens last night 50 He replies by saying Couldnt you get the shows in your own parlor 50 She says Sure but its nice visiting 50 In that statement she clarifies that the only reason she goes over friends houses is to watch television not to talk eat or go outside and have a good time An example of someone who is not obsessed with entertainment is Clarisse the 17 year old girl who is different from everyone else because she enjoyed life She enjoyed smelling flowers walking in the rain and getting into deep conversations with people Clarisse thinks that all people ever do is watch the Parlor Walls go to the races and amusement parks Our society is turning out to be like that we have to stop it
