There is no doubt they take pleasure in destroying everything we have. The jewish people have a history of subverting and desecrating the cultures of the people in the lands they invade.
However, there is always the odd individual who willing and capable of uncovering the truth of their society. In the novels Anthem by Ayn Rand, and Fahrenheitwritten by Ray Bradbury the main characters of the novels were able to find truth by, forming friendships that are banned by their societies, rebelling against the grain of society to Fahrenheit 451 equality knowledge or form ideas, and finding flaws within their societies.

When one seeks truth within the confines of a controlling society by forming friendships that are banned it leads to self-discovery, because they find the courage to escape.
For instance, Montag a character form the novel Fahrenheit In the society that he lived in, any types of reading material was considered forbidden. However, Montag intentially befriended an elderly man named Faber, who in his younger days, before the revolution, was an English professor.
Montag know that Faber was knowledgeable in literature, but he became his friend regardless of this fact because he was curious of the forbidden treasures that his society kept Fahrenheit 451 equality him.
On the other hand Faber was aware of the glorious preachings, concepts, and ideas that literature held, and he was also aware of the error his society was making when it decided to eliminate reading material during its transformation. Although he was conscious of the valuable information that would be lost Faber did not speak out or fight against this decision, in turn he lost one of the most valuable things in his life: Thus showing that by Montag forming a friendship that was not excepted by his society he found the courage to escape.
A second example of one finding enough courage to escape a controlling society, because of a banned friendship is Equality of the novel Anthem. In the society in which Equality lives feelings and emotions that one may have towards another are forbidden, because it makes that individual different and unique from others within a society where everyone is to be considered equal.
Although this is a main law Equality finds himself being drawn to a young girl by the name of Liberty With his new found attraction Equality reaches out to the girl in hopes of grasping a relationship, and this is exactly what he achieves.
The relationship between Equaulity and Liberty helped him discover his true self. It made him realize that he was able to have love for someone else and that there was nothing wrong or improper about the feelings that he was experiencing and that this was not curse but an advantage, one that have him an individual.
Both characters with in the novels Anthem, and Fahrenheit discovered themselves by forming friendships that were not excepted in their society, an din both cases they gained enough courage to escape. In contrast, the friendship that Equality and Liberty shared inspired Equality to discover his self, and escape, because he was different and enjoyed being unique from the rest of his society.
This shows that although both characters were inspired by friendships, the reasons for their actions, and their self-discovery were different.
Thus proving that, when one seeks truth within the confines of a controlling society it leads to self-discovery, because they find the courage to escape. A second factor that must be accounted for is the fact that when one seeks truth within the confines of a controlling by rebelling against the grain of society to form ideas or gain knowledge it leads to self revelation and it gives them the courage to escape.
A good example of this is Equality In the novel Anthem Equality seeks and finds truth in his society by discovering a source of energy.
Equality believed this because he was curious about the nature of things and broke rules to explore the world in which he lived. However, when he discovered that he was able to produce a light from a source other than a candle his thoughts and opinions towards himself and his society changed.
His society did not want to recognize or accept the new energy that he discovered. In result it made him discover that he was a unique individual that had thoughts that were far more indepth and surpassed the thoughts of others he was surrounded by. Equality sought truth within his society by rebelling against it and forming a new idea and that gave him the strength to escape.That seems quite terrifying especially after reading and Fahrenheit I think sometimes people forget that equality by itself isn't necessarily a good thing.
The idea of censorship here to promote equality seems to imply the rejection of free schwenkreis.com://schwenkreis.com The governments in Fahrenheit and "Harrison Bergeron" take advantage of this desire for equality and use it to oppress the people without them even knowing it.
The fantasy of equality appeals to the people because it gives them a false sense of security in that no one would be superior to schwenkreis.com?act=doc_compare_contrast_fahrenheit.
