The novel, “Fahrenheit 451”, and the article, “Technology Addiction”, both portray the results of the dystopian element of Technology addiction. In the novel, Mildred is addicted to the full wall sized televisions. She gets so involved in her programs that Mildred’s husband explains how there is literally and figuratively “a wall between him and Mildred”(41). Her involvement in the television is the perfect example of technology addiction which puts up a “wall” between the couple. Instead of interacting with her husband face to face, she pays her undivided attention to the television, making this the “New and unhealthy ‘normal”’. Their new reality is whatever the television feeds them. In the novel Mildred uses her TV programs as an “escape from reality” to avoid having intellectual interactions with her own husband. Without defining their relationship with conversation and bonding, they had even “taken to calling them relatives” (41). When one gets addicted to their technology, they lack the desire and ability to have a face to face conversation because they are adjusted to a lifestyle where people talk at them and not with them. All of the information and conversations that are on the pixelated screen in front of them requires no personal interaction. Without the ability to mingle with other humans, one lacks free thought and the experiences that define a persons individualism. Without qualities and interactions to distinguish a person, a society becomes mindless and symbolic of a dystopian world. A person gets accustomed to a lifestyle that is easy, meaning that it is much more difficult, at times, to develop social skills than it is to become enveloped in a false world. When people turn to technology instead of real life conversations and human connections, they destroy their social abilities and relationships.
