Brave New World vs. 1984
Transcript of Brave New World vs. 1984
- Aldous Huxley by: Sarah Patton 1984 by George Orwell The Governmental Structure PEACE TRUTH LOVE PLENTY Entire government is focused around four main ministries
Big Brothers and Ministries are the controllers
-Promote the idea of social order to generate "sheeple" Tools of Enforcement War Never ending
War effort is a devised plan by the world government to eat up resources it doesn't actually need: they use labor and fear as a method of control.
NewSpeak Only Purpose: Removal of words= removal of thought= removal of conflict with government authority Thought Police/ Telescreen Direst forms of submission
Cause paranoia among citizens and creates a safety net to block forms of rebellion. Big Brother He doesn't exist. He is the symbol of eternal government
Creates a blanket of comfort for the citizens of Oceana.
"He (Winston) loved Big Brother." Brave New World by Alduous Huxley Community, Identity, Stability. Tools of Enforcement Hypnopædia (sleep learning)
Serves purpose of: Government ideas become actual thoughts ("Yes, and civilization is sterilization.")
"Conditions" to create machine like entities
No rebellion/ no individual thoughts Soma "No social stability without individual stability" Government strongly supports the idea of Soma because it creates stability= uniformity= happiness. The citizens see life as only maintaining well being. "Oh Ford!", "For the love of Ford!" Technology has replaced any need for God as a means for living.
The creation of the Model T= changing the Christian Cross to that of a T.
People are created in the form of an assembly line, which Ford created.
Henry Ford is omniscient. Ford and the Model T: Sex Citizens see themselves as a commodity; see themselves as a product
There are no other forms of expression for anything, so sex is what citizens resort to.
It is possible that the citizens were taught the theory by Freud that says: sexual activity= human happiness What These Books Have in Common By installing a rigid social system, it can be assured that creativity, individuality, curiosity, and defiance will be destroyed. The protaginist tries to search for something with deeper meaning. 1984: Winston Smith- "If you are a man, Winston, you are the last man."
Brave New World: John- "I want God, poetry, real danger, freedom, goodness, and sin." Desensitizing of human emotions is huge. 1984- "I like to see the victims of the gallows kicking...and the tongue... that's the detail that appeals to me." Brave New World- "Lenina was a popular girl, and at one time or another had spent a night with almost all of them." Both are warnings to what could become. "I believe in the spirit of man." -1984
