As in a transcendental utopian society, there is no way to seek out medical help, as you are out by yourself, with whatever you need as a necessity. This is not only dangerous, but can also be fatal, as if you injure yourself badly when alone and do not seek proper medical help, you can die easily. Also, an extreme isolation from any human can be dangerous. As Donald Hebb stated, “that merely taking away the usual sights, sounds, and bodily contacts from a healthy university student for a few days can shake him, right down to the base,” (Hebb, American Psychologist). This came after a controversial study by McGill University, where they separated University students from the outside world, by putting them in soundproof rooms for as long as they could stand it.

(BS-1) Montag’s society is deliberately controlling and manipulating the citizens, for the purpose to gain control, even at the expense of stripping their ability to have
In "Brave New World", conditioning is the biggest form of censorship. "One believes things because one has been conditioned to believe them. "(Huxley, page ##) This quote shows that by conditioning all of society, no one can really be their own person and they just accept everything the way it is because there was never another way of thinking. You can find the same issue in North Korea, where people have propaganda forced into their daily lives and aren 't allowed to have any individuality. One way the World State uses propaganda in the book is with hypnopaedia.

The quote accumulates a great spectrum of the real world in which most things are driven with the motif of money that
The citizens in Brave New World are under total control since everything is censored from what they read, to what they see, and how they react. (Ch.2 Pgs. 28-36) Unlike the people in Brave New World, today's people are told we have the rights to basic things such as our bill of right’s which highlights key things that America needs in order for it to have it’s freedom and help us not get to the point we’ve seen in Brave New World. The American people unlike the people in Brave New World aren’t taught in their sleep through the process of hynopædia,(Pg. 33-36) leaving their people not able to think for themselves or think for themselves.

Throughout the novel loneliness and isolation both serve as the places and reasons for immoral or evil acts. The most impactful action of the novel, the creation of the Monster results because of Victors isolation at university without a family or friend to temper his madness. Again, isolation plays a role in the Monsters ultimate scorn of humanity when he finds that only another monster will grant him companionship. Ultimately in his pursuit to destroy the Monster, Victor falls in total isolation, only ever encountering other people in the twilight moments of his life. This isolation was a fear of the materialism that was sweeping society at the time, creating a sense that possession and wealth took over the life of most people.

The critical flaw in the collective state that Equality capitalizes on to escape lies within its very foundation. Anthem best exemplifies this flaw through Equality’s escape from the Palace of Corrective Detention, as he describes “It was easy to escape the Palace of Corrective Detention. The locks are old on the doors and there are no guards about. There is no reason to have guards, for men have never defied the Councils so far as to escape from whatever place they were ordered to be” (66-67). The Council believes the fallacies it espouses, making it easy for Equality to escape.

All of this pushed 12-year-old Jonas to the limit. It pushed him so much that he had to escape his community and leave.

He did not agree or like his community for the same reason he left it because the community had a communistic government that controlled everything and
Many communities tend to feel closed off, however none of that feeling was present at the powwow. The importance of culture and community can often be overlooked, but especially in a modern world where there has been massive globalization and a melting pot self-identity can feel missing.

In terms of how my work in the future may be affected, I feel as though I have added a valuable experience to my life. I think I can make decisions based less on myself and more on others.
