A paper written in question-and-answer form where science fiction as an art in literature and films is explored. Subjects covered are works which have impacted viewers and readers over the years, themes of these works and dystopias. Example of questions are: Who are some of the great writers of the past in Science fiction?, What exactly is science fiction as compared to horror, mystery, or adventure novels?, What is the movie "Fahrenheit 451" about? and many more.
From the Paper:"(14) What is the society in Fahrenheit 451 like? Everyone is told they are part of a larger family. They are all cousins. This Utopian society is actually a dysfunctional one in which people are hunted down on TV for any violation of the rules. In one scene everyone in a neighborhood is ordered outside the home to look for a runner. The people obey and stand outside their homes as ordered. It is reminiscent of a scene in China during President Ford's visit when an unexpected snow fell in the middle of the night. Block monitors alerted the people and everyone was out with brooms to clear the sidewalks. This is what a totalitarian society can do. It can provide what the state wants and control the actions of their people. Some people will accept this type of society but most will find it stupefying."
