The society of Fahrenheit 451 does not like to deal with their problems. The normal thing to do it burn it. On page 109 when Beatty is describing the benefits of fire he says, "Its real beauty is that it destroys responsibility and consequences. A problem gets too burdensome, then into the furnace with it." This society loves and relies on advanced technology. Mildred enjoys her TV walls so much that she calls them 'family'.

Bradbury shows how Montag rebels against his society when Montag demonstrates that he takes forbidden books and hide them in his house. On page 62 and 63 it says,"... He reached up and pulled back the grill of the air conditioning system and reached far back inside...dropping book, small ones, fairly large ones, yellow, red, green ones." Bradbury expresses his view on what must be done in an unjust society through his characters on page 82 when Faber is talking to Montag, "Do your own bit of saving, and if you drown, at least die knowing you were headed for shore." I think Bradbury supports people rebelling in an unjust society and this affects the reader because we get the point of view of someone rebelling in their society.

If Montag is successful in his rebellion then I think what will happen is books will be accepted again and new print runs will be released. Society would change in some ways and not in others. I think the people will continue to rely on technology but learning and knowledge will be implemented in school and reading. Some my choose to advance and learn from books and others may continue to hole up in their parlor walls.

My assigned historical event was farm workers rights- Cesar Chavez. Chavez was a part of many marches and boycotts. He work to support workers labor and wages. He ran the boycott of the grape pickers strike. He managed to earn support from the government of the appropriate rights for farm workers. In the source it mentions his passion for what he would do to help farmers,"Their march, which started from the punishing melon fields of South Texas, was his march, too. It was a deep and abiding understanding of the challenges of the farmworker's life that drove his commitment to labor rights." (npr.org)

Cesar Chavez ran boycotts, marches, employing strikes and fasts to reach his goal and bring attention to his cause. He also wanted to live like them he made sure that the people joining him were equal.

The hopes of Cesar Chavez and other joined striking farm workers came together to demand fair wages and better working conditions. The marches and effort of Chavez and other United Farm Workers was worth it because they succeeded at rising pay and working conditions of farm laborers. Their hopes were accomplished at that time for workers in the 1960s to the 1970s.

The difference I see in Fahrenheit 451 and Cesar Chavez is the way they handle things. In the real world people handle things in realistic ways based on our society like marches or boycotts. In the fictional world it is less realistic because that's not the environment we live in. But no matter the circumstance I think it is important for people to rebel against society to a certain extent. When it is a problem that a lot of people have or a relevant topic people should stand up for what they think they deserve. I think if things get too intense in the demands or violent it leads to bigger problems than helping your cause and should be handled by authorities. Since it could put other people in danger.
