New Balance of the World
Fahrenheit 451 v.s Baletopia
In the book Fahrenheit 451 the world is runned by the government, meaning mostly the government makes the decisions on how the citizens should be controlled, a dictatorship. On the other hand, Baletopia has a democracy system, where the people has a say along with the government.
Lastly, the biggest difference between Fahrenheit 451 and Baletopia is the way both worlds handle intellectuals. For example, in the book Fahrenheit 451 one of the government's biggest fear is reading. The government has an easy system, where they let the citizens do what they please to be happy, except for reading. The government fears if the citizens read about the past, they would want a world like it use to be. Where there was more than just happiness. If those who read, are considered intellectuals in Fahrenheit 451, then the would be exterminated. Gone. Dead. Done. Then, you have Baletopia, where if there's intellectuals that don't believe in a balanced world, they would get help. Also, their decision would be respected and very much understood by both citizens and government.
In conclusion, Fahrenheit 451 and Baletopia are completely different, due to what their purpose is, and how they are ran.
