Brave New World: Draft Huxley’s: Brave New World takes into consideration so much of what really goes on in the world now. From the separation of the sexes to the, still in progress, cloning of the new millennium. Today regardless of all the women’s rights acts and laws against discrimination due to race or sex, women still seem inferior in some ways. There are still housewives, while not as many as there were say fifty years ago, as well as women still found stuck in the kitchen cooking dinner for the husband as oppose to the husband taking hold of the kitchen and other household duties.
Women, more commonly years ago, are often time s thought of as nothing more than a way to make a baby. In older times women were nothing, but the mere way of bearing a child. While male condoms are widely available and used, it is often times the responsibility of the woman to keep up with other birth control methods such as birth control, Depo-Provera shots, abortions and other forms of birth control. From a political standpoint, there has yet to be a female president in the United States of America. In fact male politicians out weigh the number of female politicians hands down.
There are only males in charge of everything throughout Brave New World. All of the power is left to men to distribute. In fact, most directors or supervisors of big, major companies and firms are usually male. Not that a woman couldn’t perform the same duties just as efficiently, women are just more commonly found lower down the working scale. In addition to the majority of higher positioned workers being men, there are a number of cases where men and women may perform equal jobs, yet the men still earn a higher salary.
... , terrific looks or money coming out your ears.Most women love a man who loves them and knows how to treat them ... . Well...almost anything. LOL Men and women think, feel and act differently. Have you read, "Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus" by ... . Did you ever look around and wonder why a woman will chose another man over you? Maybe you are more handsome, intelligent ...
Another stretch of the world we live in today is the explicit use of drugs. In America there are a ridiculously high number of people who use or abuse drugs. I compared a commonly used drug such as ecstasy, sh rooms or even alcohol to the very frequently used drug, soma that was used in Brave New World. Alcoholics who drink a lot here in the United States sometimes beat their wives (husbands), children or drive drunk.
Sometimes people simply drink socially, such as many college students are known to do, but still get a false since of happiness that exists only while they are drunk. It seemed like in the novel people used the drug, soma, as like their ticket to a different place. It was bad, and virtually everyone knew it was bad, but it was still so commonly used. That aspect reminds me of drug dealers. Many drug dealers don’t use drugs themselves, but since it brings in money they have no problem selling them to the crack head in the project. They can see that the drugs are tearing their families apart and even are killing them, but they still sell them because people continue to buy them.
The doctors in Brave New World could see the drugs killing people, but these ‘cloned’ people were basically ‘a dime a dozen.’ Which is basically saying that the people weren’t really treated like people. They were treated more like simply employees.
