Hypnopaedia Huxley’s message: a warning of where our world is headed and how really society should be working to fix it’s problems rather than advancing technology. Born in the World state
Raised under the World state education system
Was exposed to a high level of literature only after he became world controller
Compared to others in the world state, Mond is able to express his thoughts more clearly due to his high level of literature
High level of literature allows Mond to control the World State much easier due to him being able to compare the present to the past hallucinates and makes people feel good
government approved drug "Was and will make me ill, I take a gramme and only am." “A gramme is better than a damn” “Everybody’s happy nowadays” In Brave New World The state’s use of language plays an important role in manipulating the citizens towards certain social and economical goals. Huxley uses sleep-teaching/sleep therapy to implement a certain range of understanding in vocabulary from the individual through condition in their sleep. Sleep teaching happens in an individual's subconscious where the person connects words through images they have seen over a repetitive period of time creating a very easy way for the State to use propaganda through this sleep teaching in a subliminal way of controlling people. Johns the Savage’s character ends up representing the idea that an individual that is left alone to mature in a natural state is much more humane and less corrupted than a civilized individual in a consumerist World State society. The Brave New World society strives on stability through immediate gratification instead of self-actualization and and succeeds to do this through the creation of their individuals and the conditioning they face before they have entered society that forms their view on it. Through the various characters throughout the book, we see Huxley's warning/message of where our world is headed. We also see how language, media and propaganda has affected the lives of these characters in so many ways.
