This article represent the idea in Fahrenheit 451 that the laws made are uncessary and may effect others for no reason. The passage shows how many states have laws that are uncalled for, probably because of something that has happened in the past. For example, in Colorado you “aren’t allowed to have snowball fights”. Just like in the book, the Fire Station was “established in 1790 to burn English influenced books in colonies” (32). The people who put these laws on their website wanted to show us what our society has come to, states are trying to control us one law at a time. Just like society is trying to control itself in Fahrenheit 451.
