Since he wrote this book, when television just came out, I think he's trying to tell us that technology can be a bad thing sometimes. It can ruin the whole society and make people simple-minded
His child hood efected his stories.
Well, it could be that sometimes rules are for good reasons, but I personally think he was trying to say that tiny things can mean a lot.
Excellent question. We know the number is over 5 million, because there are that many copies of just Fahrenheit 451 in print, but I can't find any specific number (which would definitely larger than this). Anyone who can find any solid information, please feel free to update.
