Transcript of Brave New World and Fahrenheit 451

Brave New World and Fahrenheit 451
Fahrenheit 451
Fahrenheit 451 is a dystopian novel by Ray Bradbury
The novel presents a future American society where the public is basically brainwashed by the government to believe that there world is perfect and nothing is wrong.
Books are outlawed and there are "fireman"
The Family
Characters
-Guy Montag is the protagonist who is a fireman
-Mildred Montag is guys wife who is mentally unstable
-Captain Beatty is Guys boss and is completely loyal to his job

Brave New World
Brave New World is a novel written by Aldous Huxley.
Set in London of AD 2540 (632 A.F. – "After Ford" – in the book), the novel anticipates developments in reproductive technology, sleep-learning, psychological manipulation, and operant conditioning that combine to create a "perfect" society.
books and arts are banned
soma
social classes
Characters
John is a “savage” because he was raised on a reserve
Bernard is an "alpha" who doesn't seem to fit in with his society and gets curious of the outside world
Lenina is a nurse who joins Bernard on his journey
Watson is a lecturer at the college of emotional engineering and a friend of Bernard

Comparison #1
Perfect societies just aren't possible without some sort of government control like communism
In Fahrenheit 451 the government advertises that everybody should be the same and makes them feel similar so they have no issues with each other and don't argue too much
In Brave New World they do a very similar thing but the difference is that they don't make everybody feel the same they divide them into groups at birth and are conditioned to stay in these groups not causing problems with other groups
Reflection Time
Reflections
-think of something today that happens that you don't question in society, are you right in doing so? or should you stand up and be the one who asks “why”
Comparison #2
Happiness is not always from truth
Brave New World happiness is artificially created by soma
Fahrenheit 451 it is also artificially created by The Family (T.V program)
Comparison #3
Things fade with time
Brave New World shows that things can change and be altered by chance of human nature who doesn't want to just be another bee in a hive but a queen among bees
Fahrenheit 451 shows this by having one person stand up for what they believe in whether it be illegal or not which creates a massive chain of events
