Every moment must be filled with superficial noise. The state finds silence and meaningful talk subversive to a society based on mass consumption and mindless thought. Everything must be disposable including things and relationships. Personal reflection and meaningful conversation bring in loyalties and emotions contrary to the laws of Ford.
