In Aldous Huxley’s book, Brave New World, an unimaginable dystopia has been created. The World State was formed on three principles: community, identity, and stability. These three principles dictate how members of this society live and interact with one another.

In Aldous Huxley’s dystopia of Brave New World, he clarifies how the government and advances in technology can easily control a society. The World State is a prime example of how societal advancements can be misused for the sake of control and pacification of individuals. Control is a main theme in Brave New World since it capitalizes on the idea of falsified happiness. Mollification strengthens Huxley’s satirical views on the needs for social order and stability. In the first line of Brave New World by Aldous Huxley, we are taught the three pillars on which the novels world is allegedly built upon, “Community, Identity, Stability" (Huxley 7).
Huxley’s main argument in Brave New World is if the human race continues to allow science, technology, and material objects control our lives, society will lose a reasonable and moral lifestyle. Huxley’s argument is well-presented because Huxley executes the creation of a dystopian world in which tyrannical leaders are able to control the consumption, emotions, and fears of the entire population through the use of technology. In the novel World State uses technology to make citizens simple-minded and controls every aspect of their lives. To readers the practices of World State might be unjust but many aspects of the novel relate to the real world. In order to address the increasing dependence on technology, Huxley incorporates satirical elements in Brave New World.

Following this further, Brave New World is also more contemporary as it is a spitting image of the modern world’s hyper consumerism, while 1984 fails to fully address this part of society. The society Brave New World, like the modern world, relies heavily on the consumption of goods to keep their economy afloat. However, in the novel the emphasis on consumption is pushed almost to a hysterical effect, in the conditioning center the Director explains, “We condition the masses to hate the country…But simultaneously we condition them to love all country sports. At the same time we see to it that all country sports shall entail the use of elaborate apparatus. So they can consume manufactured articles”( Huxley 36).
