When Montag is espousing his distaste for and inability to understand the reason for atomic wars, he says: “Maybe the books can get us half out of the cave.”
What does Montag mean?
Human beings would evolve more quickly if people started to read books.
Society would be more lenient if everyone read books and became more enlightened.
The atomic bomb will reduce Montag and Millie house to a lump resembling a cave.
Books could help people have more insight into the reasons why wars have occurred.
The atomic bombs will, in essence, make their society relive the stone-age.
