Technology causes the dehumanization of society when it is used to control people, which takes away the innate human sense to search for the truth and freedom, thus preventing people from realizing oppression and rebelling against it. The dehumanization done by the Machine enables it control and eventually bring the death of humanity by keeping the people weak and ignorant to their emotions. Technology in “The Machine Stops” makes people overly dependent on it, which causes them to blindly worship and become enslaved to it. While people in the Machine world generally regard the Machine as a necessary component in their lives, in the beginning of the story, they do not consider it to be god-like. The Machine world is described as having rooms that are “hexagonal in shape, like … cell[s] of … bee[s],” which makes a direct comparison to the honeybee lifestyle (Forster).
Knowledge is a strong aspect of a dystopian society because people will go out of their way to use their abilities to control the lives of others. In Fahrenheit 451, the government controls civilians’ ability to think by banning books. While in Oryx and Crake, one of the main characters uses his knowledge to fix the overcrowded world, but in the end he destroys humanity. While both novels focus on wisdom and characters fight for knowledge, the truth of knowledge is shown to be dangerous since in both novels knowledge leads to the destruction of society. In Fahrenheit 451, the theme of wisdom is gained through experience and knowledge.
Man treated them like regular machines and history has shown us that treating sentiment human beings with minds of their own like mindless drones does not work very well because they will revolt. They do not take kindly to being treated like any old laundry machine or just another science experiment because they have been given minds to view things in their own way. The androids in the novel Do Androids Dream will do anything to be free, even murder. This is a natural consequence and every oppressed class in history has tried to free themselves in ways that were not seen as acceptable. There is a danger that is involved when creating a class of sentient
Just as many OCPD victims, he throws his moral and ethical codes out the window. He is only focused on building his precious monster. In today’s society, people take a second look in these situations, but for science’s sake some experiments are being performed that go against the moral values of many and could cause death. For instance, many are questioning if we should seek to treat incurable diseases or extend human life by using organs of genetically modified pigs or cells derived from human embryos. It is not moral to attempt to change the outcome of ones life by taking another.
They are "horror stories as well as light-hearted warnings against taking robots for granted" (74). Many stories with robots are considered science fiction because robots are considered to be futuristic things. Bradbury uses robots to show the value people place on science over human beings. In "Marionettes, Inc.", two men are unhappy with their wives. One man, Braling tells the other man, Smith, that he has purchased a robot to take his place as a husband.
However, the perfect day comes around every so often, while technology is always there to assist people with all their needs and comfort them during tedious times. As previously mentioned, destroying all televisions would worsen our society and it would be like starting from scratch on our journey to a successful world filled with advanced technology. Education would evolve into something that our country would certainly not be proud of. Also, the employment rate would be affected drastically in a negative way. Moreover, spare time would be spent filled with stultified people who are not eager when it comes to advancing in technology.
Technology and the mass media annihilate communication in society; it makes people feel happy, and it takes away family values. Technology serves as a distraction between human interactions. It tries to create happiness, but it never quite succeeds. It tears families apart and leaves everyone as a lonely individual. Technology will take control over all humanity if we do not do something now.

The Negative Impacts of Technology “Technology can be our best friend, and technology can also be the biggest party pooper of our lives. It interrupts our own story, interrupts our ability to have a thought or a daydream, to imagine something wonderful, because we are too busy bridging the walk from the cafeteria to the office on the cell phone.” Quoted by Steven Spielberg about the effects of technology. Fahrenheit 451 is a dystopian novel about how technology takes over society, causing books to be illegal and citizens avoid talking about any philosophical topics or question why they are living the way they are. Technology has a negative impact on society. Some think that technology could have a positive impact on society because it has
