In Aldous Huxley’s dystopia of Brave New World, he clarifies how the government and advances in technology can easily control a society. The World State is a prime example of how societal advancements can be misused for the sake of control and pacification of individuals. Control is a main theme in Brave New World since it capitalizes on the idea of falsified happiness. Mollification strengthens Huxley’s satirical views on the needs for social order and stability. In the first line of Brave New World by Aldous Huxley, we are taught the three pillars on which the novels world is allegedly built upon, “Community, Identity, Stability" (Huxley 7).
Lily reflects upon her decisions and realizes that she was the one wrong and that nothing is worth losing a friendship that is this special. Life is not predestined.

Furthermore, the title “Brave New World” refers to the city. “Brave” and “New” offer positive connotations. But by reading the book, one can understand this is not a positive city at all.

(Huxley 130) Huxley wants again illustrates how Lenina is confused because she starts to feel a sort of love for John, but still recognizes her morals. She later tells John to "kiss me till I'm in a coma", which is against John's morals(Huxley 131). While Lenina has learned portions about John's culture, she still doesn’t fully understand John's convictions, and out of marriage John would not do such a thing. Her ignorance of John's culture is there to show how her lack of knowledge influences how she perceives her own morals compared to John's morals. She couldn't possibly fully understand John's ethics, because they are directly adverse to each other, and Lenina's conditioning was too strong to overcome.
Lennie had his friend to help him in this hard life. George, a man who is smart and fast at taking action, this friendship that they had, created a bond that nobody else had in this novel. They were like brothers who saved each other, they had dreams together that they wanted to reach. Although that most people at that time -The Great Depression- suffered majorly from and loneliness and despair, men had to leave their families -if they had any- just to get a minimum wage job; families had to live a life that was autonomous with no goal, just to feed their kids -George and Lennie were different. George and Lennie’s dreams saved them from loneliness.
Language as a form of mind control in 1984 and Brave New World Although one 's idea of Utopianism is unique to one’s beliefs, the genre of Utopian and Dystopian fiction is commonly tackled in novels, from which the authors convey the idea of a depraved society through detailing inhumane characteristics which would be seen unacceptable to any world citizen. In Brave New World by Aldous Huxley, and 1984 by George Orwell authors create tyrannical governments responsible for a set of callous actions such as the eradication of freedom of speech and ideological control over their population’s mentality. These wrongdoings are achieved through the application of methods that obligate people to act as machines, such as the ad campaigns in Brave New World and the implementation of the Newspeak dictionary in 1984. As Orwell creates the ministry of truth as a means to demonstrate the lack of ideological freedom in oceania, Huxley discusses the concept of World Controllers and the use of SOMA as examples of the alienated society of Brave New World. Winston Smith is the protagonist of Orwell’s dystopian novel and represents a non-activist oppressed citizen of Oceania who is unable to conform with the government’s inequitable principles.

No one is truly free, because everyone is a result of some sort of conditioning. Brave New World depicts a “perfect” society in which freedom is nonexistent, but stability and happiness are put at the forefront. Throughout the story of Brave New World, Huxley shows the audience how the new “World State” operates. Science has allowed for the creation of Hatchery and Conditioning Centres, which are able to control the entire birth process. As the babies are grow in the facility, they are conditioned for their roles in society; therefore, straight from the moment people of this society are conceived they are already being conditioned to do the roles they are assigned.
