“The Obsolete Man” from The Twilight Zone


Why i wrote fh451
“Why I Wrote FH451”

  • “It is not about government censorship. It is a story about how television destroys interest in reading and literature.”

  • “[My] fear in 1953 that television would kill books has been partially confirmed by television’s effect on substance in the news.”

  • “The culprit in FH451 is not the state—it’s the people.”

  • “Most Americans did not have televisions when Bradbury wrote FH451, and those who did watched 7-inch screens in black and white. Interestingly, his book imagined a future of giant color sets—flat panels that hung on walls like moving paintings. And television was used to broadcast meaningless drivel to divert attention, and thought, away from an impending war.”

  • “[I am] far more concerned with the dulling effects of TV on people than [I am] on the silencing effect of a heavy-handed government.”
