The book Brave New World written by Huxley is about the World State, a society with a unique system. Huxley indicated several ways of how the World State works in which shares some similarities and several differences to our world. It is very different from our world in terms of how people are born, educated, and segregated in social classes. However in some circumstances it also shares some similarities on how people are taught and how people are divided in social classes in our world. In the World State, people are created and born very differently from our own world.
One piece of evidence to support my claim/theme is, according to 2BR02B, by Kurt Vonnegut, it states, “The law said that no newborn child could survive unless the parents of the child could find someone who would volunteer to die. Triplets, if they were all to live, called for three volunteers.” This evidence supports my claim/theme which is life isn't always happy and amazing because how would you feel if you had to die for a baby you didn't even know and they didn't even know you? If no one dies for the baby, then the baby has to die and they can't even experience life. So, either way someone still has to die, the newborn or a volunteer.
Edward, the father-to-be, was having triplets, and discovered that three people would have to die on the day of the baby’s delivery. On the line 102, in says, “And then he shot himself, making room for all three children.” This shows that Mr. Wehling was heroic enough to take his own life in order to keep his children alive and America’s population steady. Also, in the text, Mr. Wehling said
King Lear did basically the same this but in this case since he was the king he was aloud to give it to who ever he chooses. The amount of power king lear has, isn 't a lot by the end of the book because he has given everything away to his daughters. In conclusion the book King Lear is a book that keeps you in suspense the whole time “ The excitement overwhelms him and he dies” (Page 283/ William Shakespeare/ King Lear). This is one of the many examples that this book gives us. Everyone at the end died and the kingdom was held in the hands of the husbands of the daughters killed.
“Literature is thought provoking; it allows us to raise questions and gives us a deeper understanding of issues and situations." The novel Jasper Jones allows us to raise questions about today 's contemporary society. It mirrors issues in a certain historical context but also issues which are evident today. The novel not only portrays abuse of power as being one of the most important issues in the 1950’s to the 1960’s but also in the 21st century. In the 1900’s, there was a hierarchy in the families as well as the town people were living in.
Both Fahrenheit 451 and The Giver, contain the point of comparison, equality. Similarly, both stories are based upon a utopian society where they are controlled by the government. The government controls the people in these societies by forcing equality. Beatty illuminates, “We must all be alike. Not everyone born free and equal, like the Constitution says, but made equal.
Should individuals submit to their government or to society? Is it worth losing their self-determination? In both Aldous Huxley’s, Brave New World, and Anthony Burgess’s, A Clockwork Orange, the objectives of the government to maintain power and stability are alike, while its methods of upholding such rigid control over the people are different. The government’s authority has a profound effect on society that is apparent in both novels when assessing the value of free will to an individual. The government’s predominant presence in society is evident in both novels as it uses technology to control the people.
The Maze Runner series demonstrates the idea of totalitarianism throughout the everyday lives of these individuals by representing WCKD as a group that controls, restricts individuals’ rights, the understanding that such procedures being followed were just and vital for the greater good. Totalitarianism is a political and social concept that explains a form of government where the state has all control over the civilians. Such government assumes full power, without any limitations. As put by Juan Linz, a totalitarian scholar, the three main factors of a totalitarianism government are “a monistic center of power; an ideology developed, justified and pursued by the leadership; and mass participation in political and social goals encouraged and even demanded by that same leadership” (Silberstein 42). Throughout the 20th century the manifestation of totalitarianism was an extreme measure of harsh political occurrences.
Emile Durkheim and Karl Marx had different ideas on what held society together but in ways their ideas were also similar. Emile Durkheim thought that society was multifaceted system of consistent and co-dependent parts that work together to maintain stability. One important thing that Durkheim believed held society together was social facts. He thought that social facts consisted of feeling, acting, and thinking externally from the person and coercive power over that person. These things could include social institutions, rules, values, and norms.
Mass media play a very significant and determinant role in the contemporary world, by broadcasting and communicating information in fast pace and at the same time entertaining vast audiences. Mass media have a tremendous impact on the structure and history of our society due to the fact that they can influence and shape public opinion, determine political agendas, affect socialization and create a relationship between people and government. They consist of television, press, internet, radio and books and they became one of the main sources of popular culture in the modern capitalist society. Media’s role, however, is not only to offer news and entertainment but also to transfer and cultivate a variety of social stereotypes, beliefs and values of the society in order to reproduce the order and the already existing formation of social life. In this paper, I shall examine the notion, the types and some important theories on stereotypes as well as their dependable relation with media.
“And it was in that clammy month the H-G men took George and Hazel Bergeron’s fourteen year-old son, Harrison,away”. (Vonnegut 1) This quote shows how in their society they were aloud to have families but they took away their children. This is different because in Anthem Equality 7-2521 discovered what a relationship was and in Harrison Bergeron they had families which meant they had relationships. The comparison between Harrison Bergeron and Anthem is the same in equality but different in relationship. In both dystopian novels they prove their points on how their society is different in relationship but the same in the concept of equality.

The ability to research a potential rule requires significant resources – time, money, information and expertise (Murphy, 2012). Having substantial resources provides a great advantage for interest groups. They can utilize media to express their opinion and sway policymakers. They have the ability to hire professional staff that can dedicate time and effort to the regulatory work involved with the rulemaking process. This allows them to seek professionals with great experience (Natow, 2015, p. 377).
These specific philosophers believed that people should have individualism and be able to take control of the things that was part of their life. The philosophers specify if the people in the society have the right to take control of important aspects of their lives, like the government, will make the society a better place. John Locke was a philosopher that acknowledged the ability of the people of the society to take control of the government like a democracy. He also says that people have the right to be able to leave a government that is doomed to fail
