(AGG) As Daniel J. Boorstin had clarified, “The greatest enemy of knowledge is not ignorance, it is the illusion of knowledge.” (Goodreads) This relates to the government form Fahrenheit 451 trying to hide the truth from the society, and had eventually killed them. (BS-1) The government tries to control the amount of knowledge and take advantage of the lack of knowledge. (BS-2) The effort to control this trait, while helping the society, will eventually damage the society.

Civil Disobedience Reflection I think civil disobedience is an effective means to creating change. Civil disobedience gets the message across and it can bring about change. Violence cannot fix any problem, as it leads to more violence and more hatred.

In addition, civil disobedience shows the opponent that you are willing to let them do anything to you, as long as there is a change brought about for the better.

Furthermore, drugs distort reality ultimately causing one to be imprisoned to narcotics. Lastly, as technology advances, governments acquire more control over society. Postman and Huxley are right to fear that what humanity loves will ruin civilization; “For the love of [power] is the root of all evil.” 1 Timothy 6:10. Works Cited Huxley, Aldous . Brave New World.
When drawing parallels between the novel and an application of its politics in modern society, it is as though Orwell foresaw the development of numerous dictatorships and corrupt governments to come. The purging of undesirable elements by the governments of both Hitler’s Third Reich and Orwell’s Oceania were done in the pursuit of perfection and power, but both resulted in manipulative, controlling nightmares, which distorted humanity’s perception of reality. On January 30, 1933, Hitler was elected Chancellor of Germany. His government, known as the Third Reich, quickly transformed into “a regime in which Germans enjoyed no guaranteed basic rights” (USHMM 1). Ultimately, his plan was to eliminate all pre-existing politics and make Germany a powerful, unified single-party state.
