Aren't We Already Here?
Technology is restricting people from acting a certain way or performing different tasks and if someone acts against the law or does something a different way they will be arrested.
Technology is used to control people in so many ways. Citizens have become addicted to the technology that they have t their disposal, take the parlor wall for instance.
The main character of Bradbury novel, Montage, is scared of the mechanical dog so in order to stay on the mechanical dogs good side he does not do anything rash or out of order.

The parlor wall is used to brainwash people, once they are addicted to the parlor wall they want to copy the actions they see on the parlor wall. Mildred is one of the many people who are addicted to the parlor wall. Mildred is somewhat brainwashed by the virtual reality people that she watches and interacts with in her living room.
The morning after Montage woke up and saw that Mildred was not there beside him so he panicked and went to see where she was.
Montage walked into the kitchen and found here eating acting as if nothing happened the night before. Montage sat down next to her and she said that her stomach was hurting and she did not know why. Mildred thought that she had attended a party the night before and she said that she felt like she had a hangover.
After she was done talking Montage told her that she had overdosed on her sleeping pills and she had passed out and was helped by paramedics. Mildred did not believe one word Montage said, she said that she would never do anything like that.
When she was done talking about that she asked Montage when they would get their Ruth parlor wall.
She said that it will only cost them two thousand dollars but that is one third of Montage yearly wage. Then she said that they could do things to get it but they are still paying for the third wall which they got two months ago Bradbury Mildred is not the only person like this though, people do not care what the parlor wall does to them, they do not care if it affects them mentally or physically all they want to do is watch their parlor wall and imitate what they see on it.
Watching the parlor wall brainwashes people and takes advantage of them and their money and no en cares if someone physically or mentally hurt themselves while watching the parlor wall.
The mechanical hound had green and blue eyes that flickered, it walked on eight legs as of it was an insect, and he had teeth an inch long that injected its enemies with morphine or procaine.
The mechanical hound is used to strike fear into people so that they will follow the rules and will not go out and do something rash or out of order and it is also used to get money.
Not only does this show how they are getting money from this but it also shows how dangerous the hound actually is when it attacks. These games are not the smartest thing to do though because people could lose all of their money and the hound could easily attack a person and kill them while they are watching.
It has a trajectory we decide on for it. It targets itself, it homes itself, and cuts off. Its only copper wire, outrage batteries, and electricity. Montage later says that the hound can inject people with different fluids that could kill people and he also said that all of the firefighters files are on the first floor of the fire station so it would be easy for someone to program the hound to attack a certain one of them Bradbury If the hound can be programmed to attack a certain person then no one can feel safe around the mechanical beast because it could be programmed to attack them.
The reason the hound can restrict people from doing a certain actions is because they fear the hound and do not want to be attack by the Sioux machine. If people ignore the technology of the twenty first century and do things differently than others they will be arrested or even killed for doing so.
In the book the firemen get an alarm and they get to the building and they find out which apartment the person lived in Bradbury Usually the cops would arrive at the scene first and arrest the culprit and take them to jail but this mime was different this time the person was still there.
When Montage and the rest of the firefighters reached the apartment they saw that an elderly lady was still there. She was told to leave but she refused so the firefighters covered everything with kerosene.
They told her to leave again but she refused so Beauty began to count down from ten while Montage begged here to leave, half way through Beauty s count she said you can stop that and she opened her hand which held a match.
She burned herself with her books Bradbury When they were in their fire truck riding back to the fire station Montage said that the women said something before she had died. Beauty said that he recognized what the women had said, Beauty said that two men who had also burnt themselves alive had said the same thing in 1 Bradbury Fahrenheit is a dystopian speculative fiction novel authored by Ray Bradbury and first published in The novel presents a future American society in which the masses are hedonistic, and critical thought through reading is outlawed.
