You say twinkle when you get the phone call, people drink water to get rid of their stresses and you become friend with blue or pink colored person. Is it weird? Why do you think so? As humans, we have been extremely conditioned as well in our lives by various experiences. The past with its experience and knowledge and memory informs us how to react to present situations. In several ways, people! s behaviors are conditioned by society ignoring their interests. Use of drugs, racial slurs and conversation in daily life are the evidence of conditioning by the world. One of the conditioned behaviors is consuming drugs and alcohols.
These days we visit many clubs and bars to drink alcohol, so we can get rid of our stressful and gloomy life. ! ^0 I drink so much beers and vodkas to escape from my stress in company and in relationship with people. ! +/- (… ).
People usually consume alcohols to break away from the reality that annoys them physically and mentally. For example, a person gets divorce with his / her partner, then he / she looks for drugs to excite depressed feeling.
Furthermore, people in Brave New World take soma as alcohol or drugs in our world. ! ^0! (R) why you don! t take soma when you have these dreadful ideas of yours. You! d forget all about them. And instead of feeling miserable, you! d be jolly. So jolly. ! ! +/- (p 82, BNW).
They encourage soma each other to believe they are always happy with the drugs. (Closing statement) On the other side of people! s conditioned behavior is a racial and ethnic slur. We feel fear that we are not familiar with, especially in appearance; races. Through the time we have not recognized, we have programmed to get along with same races and ethnics. It is not hard to see that students with same race associate with easily. But, it is not racism, it is the way we have been living and feel like naturally.
Did you know that nine out of every ten adults say that teachers should inform students about drugs in school? Drug addiction is becoming a major problem amongst teenagers. Many people don't even realize that they use drugs. Alcohol is a drug. It is the most popular drug in America. People also don't realize that alcohol is addictive until it's too late. Alcohol is also very dangerous. On ...
To express my opinion more socially, ! ^0… doing well in schools is disdained as white thing, and doing time in prison is widely accepted as black thing. ! +/- (New York Times).
In the same way, in Brave New World, people feel sickness and are disgusted with looking Linda. Contrast to people in Brave New World, Linda! s aging, senility and ugliness makes her dismissed in the new society. ! ^0…
the strongest reason for people! s not wanting to see poor Linda… fat; having lost her youth… ! +/- (pg 139, BNW) People in the Brave New world does not get old, so as they see the Linda who gets old, it is same as they see another race different from them. (Closing Statement) Lastly, the ways of we have a conversation have been programmed by society. From the introduction, why do we think it is odd, saying twinkle other than hello? It proves how strongly we have been conditioned. It is not a rule or a law to say hello, that! s the way we should do and feel like.
Why do you say excuse me after coughing or to try to across people? You do not have to say it and can just across and ignore people in front of you. However, that is the way we have learned to speak language politely and usefully. That is the manner we have been conditioned and programmed. In brave new world, people are conditioned by hypnopaedia to say particular sentences regularly. ! ^0… everybody! s happy now, ! echoed Lenin a.
They had heard the words repeated a hundred and fifty times every night for twelve years. ! +/- (p 67, BNW) By hearing repeated sentences, they say the sentence naturally during the conversation. For example, ! ^0! (R) oh Ford, Ford, Ford, ! (p 74, BNW) These words that express one! s feeling of shocking or astonishment, can be said by controlling people saying Ford rather then God. (Closing Statement) Consequently, consuming drugs to escape from depressed feeling, racial slurs and conversation habit in every day! s life are stereotypes that society have created by controlling people! s thoughts for a long time. Thus, our behaviors are one of the facts that society have conditioned. It is interesting that how our conditioning exists in many forms and reactions, some of which we are not even aware of..
