 Road to Ruin: Corridor J/State Route 451 (TN)
SR 451 would be part of Corridor J, one of 26 highway "corridors" established as part of the Appalachian Development Highway System (ADHS).
When the ADHS was created, its primary objective was to spur development in areas of Appalachia where "commerce and communication have been inhibited by lack of adequate access." SR 451 is unnecessary to meet this objective because there is no lack of access in the area.
SR 451 would degrade the natural beauty of northern Putnam County, destroy wildlife habitat, and pave over prime farmland.

I am teaching "Fahrenheit 451" as the example of a dsytopian novel in my Science Fiction class, although it is certainly one of the most atypical of that particular type of narrative discourse.
Even if it is predominantly a one note argument regarding censorship, it is impossible to deny that Bradbury makes a clear and convincing case for his position.
Set in the future, Fahrenheit 451 written by Ray Bradbury is a story of a man who struggles with the norms set by the society he lives in.

 Fahrenheit 451
Against the backdrop of a stylish but affectless future world, Fahrenheit 451 tells the quintessentially Truffautian story of Romantic self-fashioning via the reconstruction of the past, here embodied in literature and storytelling.
But those burnings of nominally subversive books are strung together with an affectless impartiality that makes full use of the uncomprehending mechanical gaze of the camera, implying that the movie's world is beyond knowing or caring.
Hundreds more books and magazines than this are visibly destroyed in Fahrenheit 451: these are only the 70-odd titles that the movie, via the camera, readily picks out for identification by the spectator.
