Allusions to the Brave New World

1. Ford
Henry Ford (1863-1947) revolutionized the automobile industry with the assembly line method of production, which proved very successful for 15 million Model Ts were sold. Humans were similarly produced in the Brave New World where the embryos passed along a conveyor belt while a worker or machine would have a specific task dealing with the specimen. Again, this assembly line method proved very successful.
2. Lenina
Vladmir Lenin (1870-1924) founded the communist party in Russia and the world’s first communist dictatorship. He believed in Karl Marx’s theories that government is affected by underlying economic forces. Lenin’s dictatorship resembles that of Mustapha Mond for both of them controlled their people for the nation to prosper.
3. Malthusian Drill
Thomas Robert Malthus (1776-1834), in his “Essay on the Principle of Population”, stated that wars and disease would have to kill off the population because it grows faster than the food supply unless people could limit their number of children. The Malthusian Drill in the Brave New World was what women had to go through to prevent births (e.g. contraceptives and medications).
4. Benito
Benito Mussolini (1833-1945) was a dictator who found fascism and ruled for twenty-one years. He tried to build Italy into a great empire but it was left occupied by armies of other nations. ‘Dictator-like’ people who were looked up to in the eyes of the public controlled the Brave New World.
5. Hoover
J. Edgar Hoover (1895-1972) served as the director of the FBI for 48 years and built it into the world’s most outstanding law enforcement agency. During his time, the largest finger print file was established. However, in 1975, Hoover was accused of abusing his power. What he established can be related in the Brave New World. All citizens therein were, in a way, secured tightly with their full profiles known to the authorities.
6. Morgana
Lewis Henry Morgan (1818-1881) was an American Anthropologist who founded the science of kinship systems. He was famous for his theory of social evolution, which was the belief that people pass through three stages of development: 1. Savagery, 2. Barbarism, 3. Civilization. The different people in the book were also split up into separate stages, two to be in fact: savagery and civilization. The ‘civilized’ were in the BNW and everyone else was a savage.
7. Trotsky
Leon Trotsky (1879-1940) was the leader of the Bolshevik Revolution in Russia. When Lenin lived, he was the second most powerful man in the nation. He lost leadership to Stalin and was murdered by Stalin’s men in Mexico. Just like the world controllers in the Brave New World, Trotsky believed that everyone must fulfill their duty toward the nation so the nation could prosper. In the BNW, the society would not function if the citizens didn’t do their roles.

Charles Darwin (1809-1882) was a British naturalist who became famous for his theories in...
