In Montag's society everyone is the same. They're uneducated and detered from gaining an education. This is the reason for Beatty's comment, his defense of the fireman's job. Ironically, Beatty is well read and very intelligent. He certainly doesn't seem to practice what he preaches, which leads us to wonder if he believes in his own profession.
