Here are some ideas I brainstormed for consideration:

 

There also seems to be a direct correlation between the improvement of technology in the novel with the devolution of thought and education. Is the improvement of technology directly correlated with the disintegration of society's intelligence and willingness to self-educate? I would also look closely at what the Faber says in the middle of the novel about how no one stood up for the education, for the philosophers or for books. Do we as a society fight for our education, yearn for more learning or do we fight our teachers every step of the way not wanting to do the work?

Other suggestions for topics:

Could you even use the example of e-books and kindles as a technological improvement and compare it to the burning of paper books in the novel?

What about looking at censorship lists and recent outlashes at popular series like Harry Potter and Twilight and the controlling of material in the schools and society found in Fahrenheit?
