The article “How does censorship affect the society” and the novel “Fahrenheit 451” both relate to the dystopian element of a society that is under censorship. The government in this novel has taken control and demanded that all books be burned, along with the houses that hold them. Although books and citizens have fallen from this, some continue to sacrifice their lives to ensure books remain alive because “Its not the books you need, its some of the things that once were in books.” The citizens have limited knowledge and have no idea about what’s truly happening in their world. The article furthers this idea by saying “Secondly censorship will also shelter people from the reality, it will make people know something wrong.” (Part3). People today have endless information readily available to them. With so much information on the internet, it’s hard to know what is true and what is false. This controversy leads to calls for censorship, shutting down unreliable and over exaggerated sources. The issue arises when deciding what is real and fake information. However, as this book showed censorship can lead to a sheltered reality where people are only given one view on a topic, creating biased perceptions of the world.
