The Argument Against Euthanasia Is Not Something New

Satire Of Consumerism : Aldous Huxley 's Brave New World

- Possessions or People “To live fully, we must learn to use things and love people, and not love things and use people” (John Powell). This simple but profound quote perfectly explains the satire of consumerism in Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World (BNW). Not only is the World State too preoccupied with buying possessions and using people, but we, as a society, are as well, and it is this fact that Huxley satirizes. Many of our priorities are in the wrong places, and BNW shows us our flaws. We need to have the people in our lives come first and the possessions to be secondary; only then we can “live fully,” as John Powell said....   [tags: Brave New World, The World State, Aldous Huxley]
