Questions

  • Brave New World
  • 21st Century America
  • What’s the relationship between morals and rights?
  • Individual morals do not exist in this society. The morals are shared by the entire society. These morals include liking their own class and that everyone belonging to everyone else. The rights that the society members have reflect this. They have the right to promiscuous behavior and to take soma when feeling unhappy or stressed out.
  • Many of the morals shared by Americans reflect the rights that we have. We don’t believe in murder or stealing and therefore we don’t have the right to do those things. Americans have the right to vote at 18, and all citizens are treated equally. This is because we believe that everyone should be treated the same and everyone should have a voice in government.

What is the distribution of wealth and jobs?

  • It appears in Brave New World that the alphas have the highest quality jobs and earn the most money. The epsilons have the lowest quality jobs and earn the least amount of money. However, each class are conditioned to like their jobs and be happy with their position.
  • In America, the upper class has the most money. Their jobs typically are of high quality. Many high paying jobs are given to the most intelligent people. The better the jobs are, in importance, the more money the workers receive.
slide4

What is the form of government?

  • In Brave New World there are 10 world controllers. Each world controller rules over a specific area. For example, Mustapha Mond was the leader of Europe. These W.C’s get the final say on decisions made by the state.
  • In America, we have a republic. Politicians must win in an election before taking office. There are three branches of government. The executive executes laws, the legislative makes laws, and the judicial interprets laws. Each of these laws has ways to check each other.
slide5

How does technology drive the development of the society?

  • The World State has total control over new and powerful technologies. The biological technology allows the state to have rigid control over reproduction. The World State also has the ability to control the opinions and morals of the people through conditioning. Also, the creation of harmless leisure and soma keeps the society members happy and stress free. These inventions allow the society to remain stable because everyone is kept happy and individualism is taken away.
  • The technological advances in America allow for easier communication. Many people in America rely on technology to make their lives easier. Technology is also used to influence other people. Our society allows us to perform tasks much more efficiently. However, the increasing use of technology leads to the decline of exercise and love of nature.
