The perfect societies have been crumbled by the simplest of thing such as people, beliefs, and customs. There has never been as a society that has been able to sustain its self and not had to back up on in way or change their customs because of a foreign power or conquest. But in the ideal society where the leaders care and have the best interest of the country itself. I could see where the society could be better. But there is always a struggle for power or land.
Characters in the novel often shy away from having any sort of intellectual conversation, or simply do not have the time in between their daily rations of soma, a euphoric like drug that keeps them busy. Time and time again in Huxley’s writing he suggests one thing about knowledge and happiness: that they cannot possibly exist simultaneously within one being. The society of Brave New World functions on the basis that everyone in the society is the same, individualism becomes a criticism not a compliment in this world. From birth, each member of the society is told that to be a part of the group is the only way to live. They never question the ideas taught in childhood because as a whole, they are either to stupid to come up with the question itself due to genetic mutations, or too drugged on soma to question the life they lead.
The study did not have voluntary consent and the results were not at all fruitful or beneficial to society as a cure was developed a few years into the study, making the study itself and whatever findings useless. Physical harm was inflicted and was essentially necessary for the study. The Nuremburg Code was in effect for the majority of this study, however no one seemed to care which is surprising, as the U.S Government was in charge of all matters pertaining to this study.

However, I can see where creating a specific culture in a very large organization is very important. That is not to say it is not important in a small business. I just have never worked for an organization that considered culture as part of the business model, which may be why I struck out on my own.

Money Equals Happiness in The Great Gatsby Throughout history many societies have had upper, middle, and lower classes. The classes formed separate communities of diverse living and never crossed social barriers. In the book, The Great Gatsby, instead of streets and communities separating each class there was a sound. On West Egg, the rich received their money not from inheritance but from what they accomplished by themselves. They worked hard for their money and received no financial support from their families.
Could you imagine living in a world where you had no personal identity? You would be just the same as the person next to you, no better or no worse. This is the situation that Equality 7-2521, the protagonist in the novel Anthem by Ayn Rand, experienced daily. He had no sense of his “ego.” In his city, no one in the “brotherhood” could use the word “I.” They referred to themselves as “we” because they believed (according to the Great Truth) that people are not individuals, but instead, they make up parts of a whole. It is not until later on in the book, when Equality discovers a house from the Unmentionable Times, that the word “I” is use and the theme is revealed.

Comparing our society and how the Ladakhs used to live is almost as if you are comparing two different worlds or species. While the Ladakhs never have these problems and that is good that also shows the real fault in their society. It is incredibly stagnant. They have accepted this as their way of life there is nothing new that will truly occur.
“For the improvement of ages have had but little influence on the essential laws of man’s existence; as our skeletons, probably, are not to be distinguished from those of our ancestors”. (Thoreau) Thoreau knew what most people today don’t, that we are all the same no matter how much money we have. Greediness can lead to negative characteristics such as gluttony and wastefulness. Our time on Earth is very limited; we do not have time to waste on materialism and greediness. We must focus on improving ourselves and our country.
This is confirmed by Jungian test as I am an INFJ, with an emphasis on the Introversion. I am not a Type A personality. There is nothing about me the even suggests I might become a Type A someday.
