Farenheit 451 was about government control. That was what i got out of it.
The government took control of what the TV was saying and turned it into
moronic stuff, so no one could think for themselves. And books were outlawed.
Freedom was removed. And the "people allowed it." Except for the few. (which I
would hope to be)
