The article “How to resist technology addiction” and the book “Fahrenheit 451” both include the dystopian elements of corporate control where all the media in society is controlled. In “Fahrenheit 451”, Mildred is obsessed with technology, her ears plugged with “Seashell ear-thimbles” 24/7 and spending her days in the TV parlor talking to her “family” that “lives in those walls”. There is “a wall between him (Montag) and Mildred” that is ruining their relationship. The author, Ray Bradbury, is making a prediction of what the world is going to end up like and emphasizes the impact of technology on people. Mildred devotes her time to being surrounded by giant TVs and having headphone-like technology in her ears all the time. Because of this, she is not the most intelligent and doesn’t have a good relationship with her own husband. People are becoming fixated on technology and not being able to survive without it. Bradbury shows through the character of Montag that technology isn’t the most important thing in life. In the article “How to resist technology addiction”, it explains how “we humans are totally overpowered” by technology and how technology is “carefully engineered to keep you coming back for more”. The writer of the article describes that the majority of teenagers and even adults are addicted to technology. Apps are designed to keep you coming back, just like the TV walls in “Fahrenheit 451” are designed to replicate “real” life and get people obsessed. The writer explains how technology is taking over our lives. In conclusion, people are becoming addicted to technology and can’t get through life without their phones or TVs. Electronics affect people’s lives in many different ways, even impacting one’s characteristics and personal health. “Fahrenheit 451” is written to show a glimpse into what life might turn into soon. Individuals must choose to either give in or try to fix the addiction of technology.
