Why the Bible is the Most Important Book in the World! Can we know that the Bible is the Word of God? This is a huge question and if you’re not asking it, you should be. This is an important topic to defend, for we argue constantly of why we believe, what we believe and we argue from the Bible that this is God’s word. So, if I am going to say that this is God’s work, I better be absolutely sure and ready to defend it.
Brave New World, by Aldous Huxley, exemplifies the idea that in an ever-growing modern world, one who demonstrates traditional values about love will be unable to cope up with the questionable morals and differentiating, controversial values present, seen through John’s difficult experience in the Brave New World. In the novel, there is a severe disconnect between what John was taught and the ideals of the Brave New World, which encouraged ruthless, unemotional, and quick interactions with someone found attractive instead of a stable relationship with a loved one. As a result, John struggled greatly to try to adapt to the Brave New World while still trying to maintain his own values, and proved to be unfit to stay there. It is evident that John could have never survived in such a society, due to the great difference in between both of their morals, and the Brave New World’s disapproval of his own values, seen through John’s reaction to the recreational activities, the people in the Brave New World’s mockery of his most favorite pieces of literature, which formed his ideas on love, and finally in his own relationship with Lenina. However, while John’s downward spiral of his mental and emotional state in the Brave New World and his unwillingness to accept their values cause him to leave London, his final conformity and unwilling acceptance to the Brave New World ideals cause the final tragedy at the end of the novel, revealing that he would have never been able to survive in this society, for he was bound to be tainted by their values.
Brave New World by Aldous Huxley is a novel that takes place in Utopia. Yet in this ideal place everyone is conditioned to be happy, it is a place where various things such as the arts are restricted so all people will be synchronized in thinking. Love and commitment does not exist but rather everyone belongs to everyone else. This place is also a place where soma holidays help people escape from their realities and never have its society feel any kind of distress or illness. This place was not Utopia to John “the Savage,” it was rather a place of hell and torment which none of the things he enjoyed and loved existed. In the novel, freedom of the individual will is one of the fundamental beliefs at the root of human ideals. While the environment or the public world (society) plays some part in forming the psyche of an individual, it is in the end, the choice of the individual (John) to be who they become
Alduos Huxley, in his science fiction novel Brave New World 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 Brave New World, 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. Huxley uses Brave New World to send out a message to the general public warning our society not to be so bent on the happiness and comfort that comes with scientific advancements.
Brave New World illustrates a world where everything that is morally right in our society, is wrong. Monogamy is sinful, massive orgies are not. Serious thinking is unnecessary because life has already been planned out. Hardships and stress can be solved with a few tablets of soma. This is the world which John Savage and others in the novel foolishly came to hate. All of the things that John Savage desires are the things that make our society unstable. Huxley uses John Savage to show the reader that this world is distopian, when this society is the closest example to a stable, utopian society.
Within the book, Brave New World, by Aldous Huxley, the author critiques his society in a way that can be seen throughout events in the book. Aldous specifically analyzes the idea of an individual throughout the book from hypnoaedic lessons, the adventure through the reserves idea of an individual, and mindless happiness to along with the frustrations of John the Savage. To begin with hypnoaedic lessons, young children are taught the values of society while sleeping. One of the main lessons taught throughout the hypnoaedic refers to the identity as useless, and the society as the most important figure. Within the rising action of the plot, Lenina and Bernard view the society of the reservation as having quite a few differences when referring
John, a savage, has never been able to fit in society. Moving through two contradicting societies, John is unable to adapt to the major differences of the civilized society due to the different ways upon how it is conducted. Living with the savages, John feels isolated from the savages as they exclude him from most of their norms. John wanted to join the ceremonies that the savages held but they didn’t let him as he states, “But they wouldn’t let me. They disliked me for my complexion. It’s always been like that. Always” (Huxley 111). John has never been able to join any of the savage’s ceremonies that the savages have arranged. This is mainly due to his complexity as he isn’t actually a savage but only considered one since he was born at the reservation. Due to his lack of participation, John feels isolated from the savages. John has always been very interested upon civilization and when he was told he had the opportunity upon going to the World State, a civilized place. He was very excited, but after visiting it, it did not meet his expectations. Bernard, an Alpha-Plus, writes to Mustapha Mond, a World Controller, about his observations of the savage stating that, “The Savage…shows surprisingly little astonishment at, or awe of, civilized inventions”(146). At the World State, a lot of people have been showing John what civilizations ...

In 2011, San Franciso Human Services Agency began investigating a Californa mom, Kerry who admitted to injected her 8-year old daughter, Britney, with botox for beauty pageants. Kerry told ABC News that she does not think that she is endangering her daughter’s health and her daughter actually asked for the injections. ABC News also interviewed their cheif health and medical editor, Dr. Richard Besser, whom said that the Food and Drug Administration has not approved the use of botox on children for cosmetic purposes. Besser has stated, ” As a doctor, if I'd seen this mother, I would be required to report her to protective services because it's maltreatment... Any doctor who would give a parent botox to administer to their children should lose their license…there's not a state where you don't need to be a licensed doctor or under direct supervision of a doctor to inject this.” (ABC News) Dr. Besser believes that parents should not give there children botox under any circumstances, and whomever does, should be reported to protective services because, it is just wrong. Besser’s research shows there is so much risk for children to use botox. "If you inject it in the face and it drifts to your throat, it can prevent you from swallowing. If it drifts to your breathing muscles..you can stop breathing. In a young child, if you're chronically using it on the face, it may actually change the shape of your face because your muscles interact with your bones to form what your face eventually looks like," Besser said. (ABC News) There is absolutely no reason for an 8-year old child to use botox for cosmetic reasons, which come with a lot of risk factors that could affect their development. The real question is focused on, Is this what beauty pag...
Aldous Huxley’s, “Brave New World,” explores the roles of people in society, morals concerning sexual activity, and other controversies in our reality. One of the principal characters in the novel is ‘John the Savage.’ John is a unique character in the story because unlike the other characters in the book, his emotions and morals were similar to those of the majority of our society. He felt emotions in a way others did not, and his morals can be regarded as ethically right (for example, he did not consider sex to be meaningless; in fact, he considered it an intimate act. Unfortunately, by the end of the story, John develops into a corrupt and barbaric man- the novel even finishes with the image of John whipping both himself and others, eliminating our prior perception of John’s character. This paper will analyse the themes and importance of the final moments of “Brave New World,” and explore how a person’s sexual experience is heavily experienced by their environment.
