Bradbury constantly encouraged us always to search for knowledge and never to allow ourselves to become comfortable in the belief that our own narrow understanding of the world offers anything close to the complete picture. Bradbury’s message was, I think, less about state censorship and more about the ways in which we voluntarily—even willingly—censor ourselves. His works are a reminder to never stop learning.
