Yet we see that some of the ideas that are presented in this book were already present in the 20th century. The idea of having one superior race of people can easily be seen as something that Hitler was trying to accomplish during the Holocaust. Huxley presents the society in his book as being a greater civilization. A totalitarian type of leadership is also presented in his book. According to him, this would be the best and most effective type of government. Hitler also thought that a totalitarian government was best. We see severalVIEW DOCUMENT

utopian society where people are mass-produced in laboratories. People have
no emotions in this world where drugs and promiscuous sex are greatly

The idea that every aspect of a person’s life was determined before they were even born fascinated me, and urged me to keep reading. The tour took place in a hatchery where the director liked to give the tours himself. The students seemed excited but nervous to be given the tour. I thought that the author had shown the stress of the students well by constantly informing the reader of their persistent note-taking. The director seemed to be proud of the progress of the hatchery, and of the over-all genius of the operations performed in the building. Although I doVIEW DOCUMENT

A utopia community would be so perfect that it would be a life without problems or set-backs. It will be a world so different from the one we live in now.

BraveNewWorld by Aldous Huxley is a satire about a utopian society where all people are divided by class and bred in order to do the work that is required of that class. It opened with on the process of this breeding, called conditioning, in the Central London Hatching and Conditioning Centre. The Director of the Hatchery was giving a tour to a group of boys, explaining the process of sleep-teaching, which is how morals and principles were implanted into the brains of children. The story moved on to Lenina Crowne and Bernard Marx, when Lenina admitted to a friend that she was attracted to Bernard.

There is a great deal of evidence that supports the idea that we, in the twenty first century, are headed toward the society described by Huxley in BraveNewWorld. Such things as advances in technology, government yearning for complete control, and an uncontrollable world population are many of the reasons Huxley’s world might become our own.
Scientific advancements in technology are made everyday. The Bokanovsky Process is one of these advancements that could possibly be made. It is not impossible to create 96 embryos from one egg. This is based on the premise of cloning. In Huxley’s world, cloning is a reality, as it is today. Many advances in the cloning system areVIEW DOCUMENT

Huxley observes in his work, BraveNewWorld that the modern world revolves around technological development. The aspirations and morals of modern society do not entirely rely on social issues such as love, family, and success but rather on industrial progress and social development. According to Huxley, technological improvement and growth are critical factors that shape the operation and activities in modern society. So far, community members need to observe the world as technologically oriented and collective social setting. Instead of being interested in individual social development, modern society is focusing its attention on mergingVIEW DOCUMENT
2987 words - 12 pagesBraveNewWorld -SummaryHuxley's point of view in BraveNewWorld is third person, omniscient (all-knowing). The narrator is not one of the characters and therefore has the ability to tell us what is going on within any of the characters' minds. This ability is particularly useful in showing us a cross section of this strange society of the future. We can be with the Director of Hatcheries and Conditioning in the Central London Conditioning and Hatchery Centre, with Lenina Crowne at the Westminster Abbey Cabaret, with Bernard Marx at the Fordson Community Singery. An extreme example of the technique would be in Chapter ThreeVIEW DOCUMENT

Bernard and Helmholtz are both Alpha-plus males; they are the highest class within their society. Bernard is physically shorter than all the other alphas, and is insecure about his size and status. Helmholtz on the other hand is very intelligent and physically attractive. Both individuals share a discontent with life in the world state. Bernard is discontent because he does not fit in, but Helmholtz is discontent because he feels that his work is empty and meaningless and he is dissatisfiedVIEW DOCUMENT

His biographer, Sybille Bedford, says,"It was time to produce some full-length fiction--he still felt like holding back from another straight novel--juggling in fiction form with the scientific possibilities of the future might be a new line" (Aldous Huxley)On having a look at the time line one can see that Huxley wrote BraveNewWorld inVIEW DOCUMENT

Throughout the novel, Huxley predicts many events for the future,most of which concentrate on a morally corrupt society. The most importantof these predictions include: greater sexual freedom, over-population,brain-washing/sleep-teaching, and the use of mindVIEW DOCUMENT

Alduos Huxley, in his science fiction novel BraveNewWorld written in 1932, presents a horrifying view of a possible future in which comfort and happiness replace hard work and incentive as society's priorities. Mustapha Mond and John the Savage are the symbolic characters in the book with clashing views. Taking place in a London of the future, the people of Utopia mindlessly enjoy having no individuality. In BraveNewWorld, Huxley's distortion of religion, human relationships and psychological training are very effective and contrast sharply with the literary realism found in the Savage Reservation.

821 words - 3 pages Imagine a world where all of your fantasies can become reality. Imagine a world without violence or hate, but just youth, beauty, and sex. Imagine a world of perfect “stability” (42) where “everyone belongs to everyone else” (43), and no one is unhappy or left out. This sounds like the perfect world. But it’s not. Looks can be deceiving as proven in Aldous Huxley’s novel, BraveNewWorld. In his novel, he introduces us to a society that strives to satisfy everyone’s wants and needs by inflicting pleasure in order to bring stability. However, in order to truly
achieve this stability, old world ideas relating to art, history, and religion are abolished, and are
replaced by new ageVIEW DOCUMENT
756 words - 3 pages Back in the 1930's when "BraveNewWorld" was published, no body dreamt that world of science fiction would ever come into reality.

With today's technology and already seeing how far we've advanced scientifically, who's to say we
couldn't push further. For that reason, it's believable that the "BraveNewWorld" could come into reality.

The theme is that the government has control over their society by brainwashing them. The difference is that Nineteen Eighty-four does their brainwashing by torture and fear and BraveNewWorld does it by making happy by letting them have whatever they want. Brainwashing is persuasion by propaganda or salesmanship (Webster). The controller does exactly that in the book. Most people would probably pick BraveNewWorld to live in over the other novel, but digging deep into the novel we realize this world is not a good one.

How can one distinguish happiness from unhappiness if unhappiness is never experienced? It's the bad that makes the good look good, but if you don't know the good from the bad, you'll settle for what you're given. Can people judge their feelings without a basis or underlying "rubric" to follow? Such rudimentary guidelines are established through the maturation process and continue to fluctuate as one grows wiser with a vaster array of experiences. Aldous Huxley creates a utopia filled with happiness, but this is merely a facade to a world which is incomplete and quite empty since the essential "experiences" are replacedVIEW DOCUMENT

Bernard, Helmholtz, and John are all unique from their peers, and they think individually as a result. Because of their individuality, the group is ultimately banned from civilization and sent to a remote location.

Before examining how utopias rob individuals of their identities, it is important to note the large cultural differences between the present in BraveNewWorld and the modern-day present to show how utopias cannot function even in a highly technologically advanced future.

It questions the way society is run today; the individual is sacrificed for the state, and science is the main focus for control. This book is a masterpiece of science fiction and also dystopian literature. The people in the society live dehumanized lives, and everything in the society is negative due to the interference of a higher power. It is evident that America today is evolving into the world state, just like in the book. A few aspects that are altering into the ways of the world state are religion, love/marriage, and pleasure/self indulgence.

Social cast in bravenewworld is quiet similar to the society we are living in. for instance, in the novel, BraveNewWorld, people have been categorized in the following terms: Alpha, Beta, Gamma, Delta and Epsilon.

The use of sex and reproduction, and Shakespearian writing and religious texts, as symbols in the novel help to push Huxley’s agenda that total government control is devastating, and the inner human drive to be an individual can never be suppressed. Also, the fact that the novel was written in 1931 shows that Huxley was attacking the newly forming Socialist nations.

Societal problems did not exist. The drug made all unpleasant feelings disappear. Soma was happiness in a little pill.

Both books were written more than fifty years ago, but far enough apart that society was going in a totally different direction at the time.

He knew that not only the world would grow cold but kids and adults would’ve unattached from one another like we have.

Satire is defined as “the use of humor, irony, exaggeration, or ridicule to expose and criticize people’s stupidity or vices, particularly in the context of contemporary politics and other topical issues” (Oxford). The best satirical writers can make the readers believe that an idea is “logical and practical.” This is seen in great abundance in Aldous Huxley’s novel, BraveNewWorld. Through his writing, Huxley uses satire to effectively point out the flaws of society at the time. Even though BraveNewWorld was written in 1931, the satirical points Huxley makes are still relevant in today’s world.

In BraveNewWorld, Adlous Huxley envisions the future of our society and the dangerous direction it is headed in.
