Transcript of Brave New World: Class Conflict

Class Conflict
By Definition rebellion is an act of violent or open resistance to an established government/ruler.
Civil Disobedience
Class Separation in Our Own Society
Prejudice and Racism
Social hierarchy in Brave New World
The Reservation-
Savages believe in marriage and families. They do not have babies in test tubes but they do it the natural way.
Future Class Separation
There will always be class separation
People are beginning to be more accepting towards others, as we accept the more merging there will be
Clearly we are never going to be a world where everyone is equal but we are getting closer
People need to realize that no one is better than anyone else
It would be nice if we could become a class separation similiar to Brave New World in a way that people would appreciate where they are on the social hierarchy
Heirarchy is determined from conditioning
Everyone is condition to be happy with their caste
Each caste wears a different colour

What is Civil Disobedience?
• The refusal to comply with certain laws or to pay taxes and fines, as a peaceful form of political protest.
We determine our hierarchy though the amount of wealth one has
Hierarchy is also determined through popularity and race
We have the upper class, the middle class, and the working class
Brave New World
Connections relate to the refusal to comply with the laws of the their Society

Most common subjects of Civil Disobedience lay within Bernard and Helmholtz
They are both considered as individuals
Think beyond the rest of the Community and beyond the Society's ultimate standards

John the Savage also a example
Refuses to join their Society
What is Racism?
Upper Class
Middle Class
Working Class
Make the most money
Live a luxury life
Usually have their own company
Have more than what they need
Make enough to survive but nothing very luxury
Making a little more than average
Usually have office job or teaching
Barely making enough to survive
Working really hard to make the little amount that they do make
They are very poor
Usually working in industrial work, factory work, fast food chains
Connection between Brave New World
Future of Civil Disobedience
Civil Disobedience will continue to exist as we continue to think freely and be individuals

If we see something is wrong we protest by duty in order to bring an end to it

People will soon begin to realize the advantages and disadvantages of the effects of the Government

As we move towards the supposed "New World Order" people will free themselves from the Goverment

Civil Disobedience will soon be at its prime
Racism is a belief that a certain race is superior than other races, therefore causing inequality, prejudice, and injustice.

Our World Today
Civil Disobedience is far more common than one would think

Past examples include the fall of the Berlin Wall
People protesting against the Government for their better well being

Protests Worldwide

Thinking like individuals
By: Michelle, Shakilla, Sammy, Kun Hee
"The belief that all members of each race possess characteristics, abilities, or qualities specific to that race, especially so as to distinguish it as inferior or superior to another race or races."
Oxford dictionary definition of racism
The End
Brave New World
Rebellion is very rare in this society (result of soma and conditioning)

Bernard Marx, Helmholtz Watson and John the Savage were the only characters that opposed the structure of this society

Bernard refusing to engage in group activites, to take soma and bringing Linda and the Savage to the Director are all examples of this.

Helmholtz thrives freedom, bored of the typical activities the others engage in, he wants a change.

John's refusal to conform to the societies standards as it goes against his morality.
Present Examples of Rebellion
Revolutions have made significant impacts globally.

Examples of rebellion currently happening include Syria, Ukraine, Bosnia & Herzegovina.
Future Predictions:
Rebellion will always be a possibility.

To ensure citizens keep/create rights that their government has taken away from or refuse to give.

Possibility of overthrowing an authoritative figure is highly likely in the future as people are becoming more aware of the new world order.
Would racism, prejudice continue forever?
Brave New World, everyone is satisfied and happy. Racism and prejudice exists in Brave New World.
"Indeed, a faint hypnopædic prejudice in favour of size
was universal." - Bernard Marx
“I’m really awfuly glad I’m a Beta, because I don’t work so
hard. And then we are much better than the Gammas and Deltas. Gammas are stupid." - Elementary Class Consciousness
Quotes from Brave New World
Racism, Prejudice today
Racism, prejudice exists even today
In Schools, job interview, public areas.
Racism and prejudice will never disappear because we are not identical human beings.
Respect, individuality, equal opportunities and non-violence
It can be decreased by education
Everyone can not be millionaires, some will have more benefits than others.
Removing individuality, promoting community, identity, and stability.
Social Hiearchy = Inequality
Nazis, KKK, Rwanda
