Can anything good come from removing all offensive material from society.


The central theme of Fahreneheit 451 seems to be that by removing anything that could offend anyone, society became an empty terrible society.

The answer to the rhetorical question is no removing offensive material is a greater offensive in itself.

With the politically correct movement in today's American Society the warnings of the novel Fahrenheit 451 need to be taken seriously.

A rhetorical question is one that is asked without expecting an answer - the answer is either so obvious as to require no answer, or there is no answer.


One question, therefore, might be:

Let's burn all offensive materials because it's a good idea. What's the worst that could happen?
