It is through this conditioning that humans are placed in specific castes. Their concept of self is reduced to them being a pawn in the World State’s economy and how well they behave in their castes. “‘All conditioning aims at that: making people like their inescapable social destiny’” (17).

The Irony is that America has been, and continues to, use the earth harshly and abuse animals, environments and countries through its overuse of resources.
The class struggle between the aristocracy and the peasantry was a big issue during this time, and if you think about it, that issue still remains even up to this present day. This struggle has been worldwide and the root of it is selfishness. Selfish individuals think about what’s best for them, or what they can enhance from. If people would think a little less about themselves and more about the community and helping others less fortunate, the world would be a better place.
