However, we are not really safe, every day there is a new threat against America and we should be terrified of this. The government creates this façade that we can withstand anything; when that is far from the truth. How can the government promise us safety from the outside, when they cannot provide us with safety on the inside?
The utilize of technology in Brave New World highlights the theme of control because of the way Huxley presents the advanced technology. The residents of the World State are dependent upon artificially stimulated happiness or entertainment, and this “addicting mass culture” prompts the government’s desired impact for stability; as much as the World State agrees with science and advancement, the more they bastardize it because of its impacts of the soul and mind. Science can prompt humanity’s primordial need for individuality, and Mustapha Mond, the State Controller, believes individuality prompts instability. According to the World State, stability is the “primal and ultimate need” (Huxley 43). The World State utilizes what is useful from science but does not agree with science itself; it uses what it can to promote the stability it craves.

When the Constitution of the United States was written, the Founding Fathers were very careful to create a government that will not dominate and obliviate the local governments.

In the Novel Fahrenheit 451, one way that the government controls their society is by outlawing owning and reading any type of literature. There are a couple reasons why the government does this.

The Declaration itself states, “-That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it” (Lines 22-25).

Thus, the government can maintain its legitimacy and domination while pursuing policy that it favors.
