Everyone believes that the United States government is based solely on the values of democracy. At one point it was, when the U.S was founded, but recently it have change due to the ambition of wealth and power. The United States have been known to be the country of freedom, equality, and prosperity. Which have proven through its own people and other countries that democracy was the best government to follow by. But if we look deeply in our government, the people who runs it, does not completely follows the values of Democracy and secretly use traits of totalitarian and dystopian acts. Two great novels, Brave New World by Aldous Huxley, and 1984 by George Orwell describe life living in a dystopian and totalitarian government or society. Living in these type of societies, is not the best way to live in because you lose your freedom and lose yourself. I believe that our society is more like Brave New World than 1984 because our society seem perfect, but actually it is not. If you think about it is not as peaceful and innocent as it seemed. Society have been brainwashing us to like what they want us to like and hate what they want us to hate. Just like the people in Brave New World, we were condition to like certain things, because we are ignorant in our surroundings, and often don’t judge it. If we don’t act, we as a group or community, will eventually fall into the grasp of their dirty hands, and lose control of our minds and rights. First of all, I want to talk about leisure activities that society offers us play and condition by it. From the novel, Brave New World, when D.H.C explains to his student about the achievement of their society, “It was decided to abolish the love of nature…‘but simultaneously we condition them to l... ... middle of paper ... ...rave New World. I think people got so use of drug, it so hard to imagine a world without drugs, even there are some people who is stupid enough to take drugs that could kill them. Therefore, that is why I believe that people are addicted and believe that drugs is our only solution. In conclusion, that is why I believe that I believe that our society or government is becoming like a dystopia in Brave New World. It seem perfect, but it is not. There is a lot of other things that government I doing, that is violating our rights and we are not conscious of what they are doing. So in a way, we are already in their grasp, and if we do not fight, we will lose our freedom to think, to rebel, and speak. Works Cited Huxley, Aldous. Brave New World.
