Fahrenheit 451: What Ray Bradbury Already Knew About Our Future Sustainability – Living Green Magazine Article

Posted on by mark

Thank you to Living Green Magazine for posting and sharing my November 29th article, “Fahrenheit 451: What Ray Bradbury Already Knew About Our Future Sustainability” available by clicking here.

Fahrenheit 451 presents a future American society where books are outlawed and firemen burn any house that contains them.  People are becoming addicted to media, and often watch an interactive soap opera on “parlor walls” that consist of three enormous, floor-to-ceiling television screens.  Bradbury said that his novel is not about censorship, but a story about how television destroys interest in reading literature, which leads to a perception of knowledge as being composed of “factoids,” partial information devoid of context.
