Every society strives to be perfect, but the truth is most cannot make the sacrifices necessary to achieve perfection. Every society contains too much conflict since different people's’ views and emotions are constantly clashing with each other. These conflicts are the reason why a utopian society cannot be created. In order to have a perfect society, everyone in that society has to have similar motives to eliminate conflicting ideals. Societies have to be willing to sacrifice certain traits, such as emotions and the truth to obtain perfection, but first, they must ask themselves, “is it really worth giving up these traits?” In Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World, he uses Christian symbolism and Shakespearian allusions to portray to the reader that it is not worth sacrificing the truth for a “happy utopian society”.

First of all, Lewis elucidates that some Christians scorn others for not devoting all their time to religious activities, and that to answer bad philosophy there must be knowledge of what constitutes as good philosophy.

His dread of what his past meant for him and his relationship with Miss Penbrook was eventually overpowered by his courage to find the truth to these questions. Courage gained by truth and change can seem unlikely, but it sometimes holds the answer to
In “Waiting for Godot”, written by Samuel Beckett, absurdism is a major theme within the play as an existentialist view of human reality is hugely reflected. The play revolves around the mocking of religion and faith in regards to futility. Ironically, however, the play would not exist without this idea that life has no meaning.
