In which Hank discusses his feelings after the first parts of Fahrenheit 451, argues with John, and takes a bite out of a banana.
I worry that, since Ray Bradbury appears to think that all humanity can be stripped of people, that some people will assume that all humanity /has/ been stripped from people. In my discussions with people of all sorts, I have not found that to be even a little bit possible, no matter how much mindless entertainment they consume, or how averse they are to the idea of deep thinking.
I worry about the implications of dehumanizing an entire society. I also think that, as a SciFi novel, the culture itself isn’t very well sketched out, but it is quite a short book, and maybe I should save that discussion for next time.
