>>7649150 I genuinely regret bothering to read this. The narrative is narcissistic, arrogant and repugnantly self indulgent. Bradbury's prose reads like he had his head stuck too far up his own ass to see what he was typing. The hypocrisy of lauding his medium in such a self-congratulatory and exaggerative manner and maligning and abusing that medium at the same time is ludicrous to the point where it borders on satire.
>>7649150 He couldn't quite conceive of the future to come. They don't need to burn books anymore. We have enough bread and circus to drown our society and keep most from ever touching anything of worth. It also serves to create a schism between the thinking and values of those who do sift to find ideas of worth and 'the rest'. Those who only manage part way into philosophical betterment will feel repulsed by their less educated brethren and isolate themselves or delve deeper to the point where it is all consuming and again self isolate. Few will truly understand both themselves and the uneducated masses and have the sympathy to attempt to better them despite themselves, among them, almost all will fail unless their goals are narrow in scope and target.
>>7649150 Lmao here, here's your two hours this book takes to read back. I'm not an apologist for f451 but the robodog thing was ok. Also you ppl should really update the starter kit if youre going to keep calling this crap.
>>7649546 I didn't say the people were not of worth. I did imply what they spend their time indulging in is of inferior worth. That's a judgment of the indulgence and not of the indulger. Plenty of decent[depending on your standard] human beings these days do most of their reading on FB/Instagram/Twitter. Some of my friends and family are like that and I feel bad that I can't/don't do more to help them.
