against the law. In present day society, people are allowed to think however they please. No ones thoughts are limited and people are also allowed to speak freely. A law like this in present day society who be sure not to last because of how controversial it may seem. As expressed, dystopian societies are merely fiction and the most of the laws followed in those novels differ greatly from the laws enforced today. In addition, these socities may be protrayed as fiction, but in actuality the authors have taken many aspects of the world today and have taken them as inspiration for their novels. For instance, people in these novels are still unhappy with their situations. In the book "Fahrenheit 451" it exemplifies "It was like coming into the cold marbled room of a mausoleum after the moon had set. Complete darkness, not a hint of the silver world outside, the windows tightly shut, the chamber a tomb world where no sound from the great city could penetrate. Even though, the main character, Montag, does not directly say he is unhappy, his wordig says otherwise. Using words such as "mausoleum" makes his room sound said and gloomy and it also describes how he is feeling. This is imilar to how in todays society a vast amount of people are feeling glum about their lives, but they don't admit it or they don't want to believe it. Additionally, in another novel named "Harrison Bergeron" it explains "Some things about living still weren t quite right, though. April for instance, still drove people crazy by not being springtime. And it was in that clammy month that the H-G men took George and Hazel Bergeron s fourteen-year-old son, Harrison, away. The citizens of this novel are often upset because their child was taken away. In todays society people can go into a state of depression and anger because of the passing of a child or if their child has decided to leave there parents. This can equate to the same thing the charatcers in the novel are feeling when their offspring gets taken into custody. Furthermore, violence in these dystopian socities has not ben irradicated and is still very present like how there is still a vast amount of violence in present day society ,as well.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
