             3. Montag says his wife claims that "books aren't 'real,'" expecting Faber to disagree.
             Instead, Faber agrees based on the accepted definition of what is "real."
             4. As the speaker of the poem reflects on the scene that he comes upon, the area with a tuft
             of flowers left untouched by the mower, he works through his thoughts about whether
             people work alone or together.
             5. The introduction of the butterfly midway through the poems helps lead the speaker to
             greater understanding because the butterfly directs the speakers eyes toward the tuft of
             flowers left untouched by the mower: "But he turned first, and led my eye to look/ At a tall
             tuft of flowers beside a brook,"
             6. At the conclusion of the poem, the speaker realizes that "Men work together…Whether
             they work together or apart."

                 3. Tatsu believes his creativity is drawn from the natural world. He is
                 reluctant to use the man-made art materials in his studio because they are
                 not natural. He believes that civilization is false and not as meaningful as

                 The more exasperated he feels, the more he feels tempted to paint,

                 attempt to express his feelings, even by throwing a brush across the room,
                 accidentally begins the process of painting a picture.

                 4. She describes how governments in China, Tunisia, Uzbekistan,
                 Vietnam, and Egypt have taken various steps to suppress the free flow of
                 information.
                 5. She says that the United States wants all people all over the world to
                 have equal access to information via the Internet.
                 6. She notes that freedom of information is not a new issue that has just
                 arisen in response to new technologies but rather that it has been an issue
                 for as long as the United States has existed.
                 7. She notes that freedom of speech has always been a core American
                 value, as shown by the fact that the First Amendment to our Constitution
                 focuses on it.
                 8. She emphasizes the importance of the First Amendment to Americans
                 by pointing out that it is carved in 50 tons of marble on the front of the
                 building she is speaking in.

                 3. After highlighting positive effects of modern information networks,
                 she contrasts them with some negative effects by pointing out cases
                 where other countries' governments have used information technology
                 to suppress free speech. She cites China, Tunisia, Uzbekistan, Vietnam,
                 and Egypt as examples of authoritarian governments attempting to
                 suppress free speech on the Internet.
                 4. After demonstrating that technology does not take sides in the fight
                 for freedom, she asserts that America does. This is her main argument,
                 and it is strategically placed for impact. She says that free speech has
                 always been a core American value, and she supports this claim by
                 pointing out that the First Amendment to our Constitution focuses on it.
                 She emphasizes the importance of that by pointing out that the First
                 Amendment is carved in 50 tons of marble on the front of the building
                 she is speaking in.

                 as finding adequate food.
                 2. The people need each other in moments of weakness. One person
                 alone would die if he became too ill to feed and look after himself, even
                 if the illness was a short one that he would have easily recovered from if
                 other people had looked after him for a short time.
                 3. When the people no longer face immediate major challenges or
                 overcome immediate major weaknesses that force them to work together,
                 they begin to stop fulfilling their responsibilities to each other.
                 4. The people decide to form a simple government to enforce
                 responsibilities, so that people will continue to work together fairly and
                 equitably, even at times when their lives do not immediately depend on
                 their doing so.
                 5. Punishments in this first simple government consist merely of
                 disapproval.
                 6. All the people participate in this first simple government, but a more
                 complex, representative government becomes necessary when the group
                 of people grows too large to conveniently meet together to make all
                 governmental decisions.

                 What the hand and gavel represent:
                 1. The hand and gavel represent the power of government to punish
                 misbehavior. Paine argues that government is a necessary evil to restrain
                 human vices and that the primary role of government is to punish.
                 2. The hand and gavel represent a complex government. Paine argues that
                 the most primitive governments punish lawbreaking only with "public
                 disesteem." The illustration suggests harsher punishments than that,
                 which imply a complex government.
