Fahrenheit 451 Trailer #2

We see these types of shirts frequently in communist "fashion" because the person wearing the shirt can't wear a tie, and the person wearing the shirt can't be judged because he's not wearing a tie. In Western, capitalist societies, men wear a tie to work to show they are "white collar," they have a upper-end job dependent more upon sets of mental skills usually acquired in college rather which usually leads to higher-paying jobs and the tie denotes that. On the other hand, men in communist societies wearing the shirt shown above don't have a "bare collar" revealing that they aren't "white collar employees" (the absence of the tie might reveal the absence of college training, for example), so in communist societies, the "lack" of a collar reveals the so-called "balance and fairness" of education, training and employment if everyone looks alike and no one can use their clothes as a status-symbol. Now we know that the neck symbolizes what leads us in life, and for many men, to say that their career-choice in life leads their decision-making (how much money they can or will make in a given-profession) is a legitimate concern (studies have shown that men, especially men with families, tend to choose higher-paying professions to provide for their families, or families they hope to have). In communist societies, the lack of a collar is meant to show freedom, that now you don't have to worry about making a living because the government is going to take care of that for you, and you can do what you really want to do, like burning books all day and starting fires.
HBO has released their second trailer for what looks to be an excellent adaption of Bradbury's novel. Here is the second trailer for the series that will air sometime in May on HBO:
The question, "Didn't firemen use to put out fires?" illustrates an important concept about socialist societies: they turn everything upside-down. In the mockumentary, No Men Beyond This Point, it's clear that since men were the engines of creation in capitalism, the new world of praising nature where men are slowly dying out has exalted women in a socialist, matriarchal society. In another Micheal B Jordan film, Black Panther, when his character Erik Killmonger takes the throne, the camera shows the Wakandan throne room upside-down to illustrate how Erik is going to turn the world topsy-turvey by releasing high-grade weapons into what might be considered terrorist regions. Then there's the Sofia Boutella film, The Mummy, where Tom Cruise and Annabelle Wallis have their characters turning upside-down in the plane as The Mummy nears where the sacred knife is kept and she begins regaining her powers (to establish a socialist matriarchy). Last but not least, the most anticipated film of the year, The Avengers: Infinity War, gives us a trailer with the world being upside-down as Thanos enters New York City so he can wipe out half of universe to "balance" things, just as we see un-equally created people being "balanced" by being dumbed-down so they can't read anything.
As a young woman, Sofia Boutella's character symbolizes the motherland, and the future of the motherland, what the country can still become, so what happens to her character, and the threats her character faces, reveals what the course of America should be for a more natural balance leading to genuine happiness for the greatest number of people. 
"We must be made equal by the fire and then we can be happy," That's a classic lie in socialism, there is always a delay of happiness which socialist leaders make any number of excuses to the people: we have to purge the ranks of all these hiding capitalists, then we can be happy; we have to educate ourselves more to cleanse ourselves of Western culture and then we will be happy; we have to kill the old people who remember what really happened in history, instead of what we tell you happened, and then we can be happy, etc., etc., etc. Socialism always promises happiness, but it never delivers it. Never.
