Is Ignorance Bliss? VS Fahrenheit 451 Wall-E
Brought to you by… mmm… Good Grammar.
And by this guy… Who needs books when … “we’re gonna build a wall…”
Also by the letter… Which of course stands for….
The Dangerous Dunces Dangerously dry Dangerously dependent These character in both works show that it is dangerous to ignore the world around you.
The Captain A man who is in control, but who relies on another to maintain control, is not in control.
Dangerous Dependency The captain is babied into making decisions that benefit Auto. His dependency corrupts his ability to lead until he decides to think and act for himself.
And the dangers of dry… Like, Soooooo boring. Mildred is boring. Blank stare no personality type boring
Like, really boring Note: the blank eyes, distant expression and awful haircut – Pstttt… it’s from the movie.

Mildred the Malificient In fact, she’s so set in her boring life, she’s one of the characters that turns Montag into the Firemen.
Danger, thy name is Dumb These two characters show ignorance can be downright dangerous. Ignorance, therefore, is not bliss in either of these films. It can’t be. Ignorance almost kills the protagonists in each of these stories and noone can be blissful if they are dead
