An article on “Suicide and social media in the suburbs” and in “Fahrenheit 45” go in depth about how suicides are linked to technology. In the Chicago tribune they focus on one school that had multiple suicides in the span of a week. They found that “high school students in Montgomery County seriously considered attempting suicide during the previous year, and almost 12 percent made a plan - roughly reflecting state averages”. Constant hearts of various colors were posted on social media suggesting suicides. So they advised and “The school urged students to disconnect from social media if they see disturbing news that is unverified.” This shows that suicides and technology are linked because suicides only keep increasing and what is increasing control over us is technology like the hearts in the example shown. So with this the links and bonds between the two seem to become stronger. As said in my previous essay, technology is linked with anxiety and depression and what has been known for a while is anxiety and depression is linked to suicide. In the book Fahrenheit 451 Montag’s wife seems to attempt suicide when taking too many pills and almost killing herself. This is shown when Montag addresses her saying “Maybe you took two pills and forgot and took two more, and forgot again...”(17) and the wife seems to play it off by saying “what would want to I go and do a silly thing like that for?”(17) Another suicidal thought was from Montag who mentally said to himself “The hound, he thought. It’s out there tonight. It’s out there now. If I opened the window... He did not open the window”(45) He is thinking of attempting suicide based on his life scenarios and he also happens to be heavily engrossed in technology that day. So the following text shows that suicidal attempts are linked to an over use of technology. People become obsessed with technology like Montag’s wife and felt the urge of dying and desired death. Overall they get so lost in another world known as technology they find that they lose and miss opportunities in our current world. They begin to feel behind like there slipping away and feel like we can’t make up for lost time.
