Brave New World Essay

1275 words - 6 pages

In the book Brave New World by Aldous Huxely, they have two worlds; the new

world people are made from tubes and the reservation they are born naturally. I

believe that there is a connection through the government in Brave New World,

1984, and the video clip on you-tube. The government seems very powerful and

manipulating in all three and the video definitely shows how the government has

this power and how they use it. I believe that every government had a strategy in

these three sources and it shows us in the books how they used their strategies.

In Brave New World I see that the government has these chemical machines

that make humans in the New World ...view middle of the document...

It takes peoples minds and just makes them

stupid and happy. There really are not many people there who are unsatisfied.

Everyone in the New World is supposed to feel good and to be really happy. This

government wants to feel and have the power to control this New World so that

they can start ruling the world. I see how they do this by making them want soma

and making them think sleeping around is normal and getting pregnant is bad.

Also, there is a lot of manipulating that the government does. They have soma

that makes the people feel good and just be lazy. They really emphasize on the

soma. Everyday they have soma like with every meal and snack. Soma is how

they get the people to do what they want. The government is very manipulating

when it comes to wanting to be more powerful. This government has a lot of

control/ manipulating over this New World and many people can see how and

why.

In the book 1984 I see how the government controls their controls by taking

over and in Brave New World it is the same thing. 1984 the government makes

the history a lie and make everyone believe them and torture them into thinking

whatever the government wanted them to think (Orwell). The two governments in

these books are very similar. They both want to rule the world and take over.

They want to feel the power and they can taste it already. This book also shows

the readers how the government in European should have been or how it was.

People did not have a lot of freedom in this country (Orwell). People were

miserable and did not have fun. Everything was not real (food) and no one had

relationships (Orwell). The government in this book is really cruel and this is how

governments want to be. They want to be in control all the time this is why we

have wars and no one wants to be civil and have peace. Many people are

working everyday and they are not getting much pay. The government is using

them as slaves so they can become successful in the world. I see how this can

come across some people and it may make them a little upset but this is what

the government thinks that this will help their power become more so they can

rule the world. Not many people actually like this government but the rest feel

like this government should really change and be more lean it. When they try to

change the history they manipulate the people by telling them things over and

over that are basically the same and just repeat every so year. They tell them

what they want them to believe and they...
