Montag comes to learn that "firemen are rarely necessary" because "the publics itself stopped reading of its own accord" Bradbury wrote his novel in 1953: to what extent has his prophecy come true today?

Bradbury's prophecy has come true to a large degree. Many people don't read unless they are required to. Television, reality TV, gaming systems, social media..... all of these things have taken the place of reading for enjoyment.... or even reading to expand knowledge. Today, most people want instant gratification and advancments in technology have enabled people to have it.
