Although both are "futuristic" I think the attitude to books in both books is a very old one - ie the ideas in books are dangerous. Book burnings are not new, neither is using books to push a particular ideology onto the public (think Tudor England, and Nazi Germany). Much easier to control the media, and have people obsessed with soap operas and even computer games - heavens to betsy, don't let people start thinking!! I'll never give up my books, not the paper ones nor the ebooks. And every few years, I'll re-read Fahrenheit 451 to remind me why books are so important.
Nice post swiatlonosny, and well worth thinking about.
