Life in Brave New World and Life in America

For more than half a century, science fiction writers have thrilled and

challenged readers with visions of the future and future worlds. These authors

offered an insight into what they expected man, society, and life to be like at

some future time.

A society can achieve stability only when everyone is happy, and the

brave new world tries hard to ensure that every person is happy. It does its

best to eliminate any painful emotion, which means every deep feeling and

passion. It uses genetic engineering and conditioning to ensure that everyone

is happy with his or her work. Sex is a primary source of happiness. The brave

new world basically teaches everyone to be promiscuous. You are allowed to have

sex with any partner you want, who wants you, and sooner or later every partner

will want you. Children are taught through hypnosis that "everyone belongs to

everyone else." In this Utopia, what we think of as true love for one person

would lead to a passion for that person and the establishment of family life,

both of which would interfere with the community and its stability. Nobody is

allowed to become pregnant because nobody is born, everyone is a "test-tube"

baby. Many females are born sterile.

The ideas and ways of obtaining happiness are not too much different in

the brave new world than in our lives here in the United States. The only

difference is that these pleasures are looked at in different ways. Sex is a

very large part of our society's pleasure and everyone is allowed to have any

partner that he/she wants, but this idea is not taught at a young age and

everyone in our society does not feel this way towards sex. Our ideas and

thoughts on topics of this nature are much more broad, and everyone is entitled

to his/her own opinion. Families are established in our culture, which are

looked upon as something very good for our society. Women are allowed to become

pregnant as freely as they want and the government will even aid them in the

process. This is one difference that is totally different from the brave new

world. Women were a lot of times not even allowed to have children much less

have as many as they so desired.

Soma is a drug used by everyone in the brave new world almost everyday

It calms people and gets them high at the same time, but without hangovers or

nasty side effects. The rulers of the brave new world had put 2000
