Mond believes that in an affluent, youthful society, there are no defeats and hence no need for religion. This appears to be factual reflecting upon the fact that they are doing fine without religion. Religion would complicate and arise outlooks and create insurgents and obstruct with the solidarity of society. As in our world today, religion is an aberrant it seems, ironically instigating hatred and violence, things that faiths do not disregard. Religion is thought of be corrupt in the World State, which is just another way to have distinct people, something the World State attempts to prevent.
Nobody has to get rid of the highest human aspirations, emotion is something that cannot be eradicated, and instead they encouraged addiction or dependency to keep the members of the society in line. He also acknowledges the sacrifices that have been made to sustain deceptive contentment. Mond views John’s desire for freedom as the desire for unhappiness; the controllers of the World state scarify their citizens in order to gain happiness and stability. Soma shorten the life expectancy, but it doesn’t prevent the government to give it to their citizens because the key components to the society in Brave New World are stability and happiness; so they must do anything in their power to make it happen.
He develops the idea of the right environment; it is Utopia, a place where people are honest and equal because of the way that society is structured. Utopia is as close to the ideal society as possible because it assumes and accepts that its inhabitants are not perfect; the starting premise of the society is that human nature is dishonest and selfish. The laws in Utopia are constructed in a manner that makes immoral action absurd. Schools and the everyday structure of life are used to educate its population to think morally without even questioning it. Utopia operates on the assumption that people have and will always act in their own best interests and, then, the laws and institutions create a climate where the best interests of the community as a whole also correspond to those of the individual.
A perfection similar to the perfect drug they created, soma, which has “All the advantages of Christianity…; none of their defects.” This drug embodies perfection because it only benefits the user without any maladaptation. And they hated and were discomforted by anything related to the past or anything less than perfect. An example of the displeasure of the imperfect past would be when the students became extremely distressed at the Director’s mention of the concept of fatherhood and motherhood. Their disdain for the past is also delineated through the Controller’s reminder to the students of how they revere the quote of Henry Ford: “History is bunk.” As the Controller reflected upon the old family life of his ancestors he recognizes it as having “appalling dangers” that Freud made a revelation of. He thought by the presences of fathers and mothers in the world is parallel to a world “full of misery…” and “full of madness and suicide... ... middle of paper ... ...actuals furthers the perfection of the higher castes.
Happiness is the ultimate goal in life. Utilitarianism is simple, it claims that an action is morally right if and only if doing the action maximizes pleasure. An action is morally wrong if it fails to maximize pleasure. it help people, and morally wrong actions harm people You make people happy when you help them and you make them unhappy when you harm them. In this paper, I will show that Utilitarianism is a true ethical theory because it (benefits the greater good) is encompasses all beings in society, is impartial (nonpartisan).
According CSL, Christians also think the same. It is one of the religions that takes in and accepts the beauty of our body. Not being ashamed of sex would actually mean the “state into which the sexual instinct has now got nothing to be ashamed of”. It’s like enjoying sex and not being ashamed of it like enjoying eating and not being ashamed of it. Although saying that ‘sex is nothing to be ashamed of; the state into which the sexual instinct has now got is nothing to be ashamed of.’ This statement makes everything wrong.
Huxley created a society where all of these are true, and still one questions whether or not it is truly a utopia. As people in our society look upon "brave new world" they see it as a place of immoral behavior and obscenity. Could this possibly be because they are conditioned themselves, and cannot realize it? They could just as easily be conditioned into thinking that only their thoughts are correct. Everyone's goal in every culture is to reach a state of ultimate happiness.

What matters is how it is used, and we must convey by word and example that the abuse of alcohol is never humorous, acceptable, or excusable.

Of course they often do --- no less than do ads for cars, instant coffee and anti-fungal sprays.
Justice serves as a bulwark of virtues, is in itself a virtue, and is easily respected for its own intrinsic value. In Hume’s “absolute benevolence” example, there would be no word for “justice”. As it is, however, there are two words that relate, justice and injustice. The significance here is that each of these are useful in certain situations. Hume is absolutely right in ascertaining that justice is of absolutely no use whatsoever in the case of being kidnapped.
Since God made us in His image, shouldn’t we have some part of us, however small, that is incorruptibly good? He puts the blame of evil on our free will. This means that God was not the creator of evil and could be both wholly good and omnipotent. Augustine also addresses the problem of bad things happening to innocent people. All of his arguments seem valid to me.
