” Family In the totalitarian society of Brave New World, the development of human beings is completely controlled by the World State. Each person is raised in a hatchery, where the government controls every stage of their development until maturity, a process that takes Two-hundred and sixty-seven days. The embryos’ DNA is controlled chemically to stimulate or to retard their physical and mental growth to create a biological class structure. The human’s placement into a certain class, such as Alpha, Beta, etc. , depends on their level of physical and mental! SS perfection. ! ” The very notion of human reproduction without genetic purity (regular human birth) is viewed as dirty and illegal.
The hatcheries, including the use of hypnopaedia to teach and build! SS values, ! ” have done away with the traditional nuclear family. The strict biological class structure, which influences the behavior and intellect of the humans within those classes, and psychological messages that are broadcast continually, replace the same process done by the parents of children of centuries past with a system of development that is faster and more efficient. Hypnopaedia also instills the people of the state with the knowledge of the different classes in the world and why it is best to be in the class you are in, guaranteeing that the masses comply with the situation they are placed in. Thinking as a whole class, rather than as individuals, eliminates overachieving and striving to better their lives so the State can better control the populace.

Because of the birthing system and views towards biological reproduction, marriage is not practiced. Since everyone! SS belongs! ” to everyone else within a class, sexual coupling is encouraged without fear of commitment to any one individual, and it even helps the society prosper according to the World State.” Education The entire educational process is provided by the World State during the period where human beings are developing within the hatcheries. This is mostly performed through Hypnopaedia, ! SS sleep-learning. ! ” By repeating phrases over and over while the children sleep, the State can condition each person to accept his role in the world around him and to behave in what is deemed as ‘safe.’ Other forms of education include sessions that are much like behavioral training of laboratory animals.
For example, the dislike of roses and books is enforced through electric shock while they are still babies. Even sexual promiscuity is regular education for humans as soon as they reach puberty. Besides a specific class’ regular education, every person is conditioned to love Henry Ford, Soma, and sex above all else. The knowledge of the different classes in the world and why it is best to be in the class you are in is implanted in the child’s mind through hypnopaedia. Through the suggestions that make up the childhood of the adults in this society, the adults are ‘raised’ by the leaders of the World State to think and act as they are told.
This creates a society full of human clones, completely devoid of personality but ultimately viable members of the World State’s society.” Religion The World State’s society pursues no spiritual experiences or joys, preferring carnal ones. The eternal search for joy that transcends the body, a search that many never reach the end of, has been replaced by the ease of physical pleasure that comes from uninhibited sexual freedom and Soma. The lack of a religion that seeks a transcendental understanding of existence ensures no one has a reason to rebel. If there is a central! SS god! ” of the World State, then that deity is Henry Ford, father of the assembly line.

Without him, no such automation or efficiency could have been possible without his invention. He is revered so much that the love of Ford is taught to all humans during Hypnopaedia and the World States’ calendar is marked A. F. (After Ford) for the time after the development of his assembly line.
The only rituals they do have, if that, are orgies. What begins as an attempt to reach a higher level of understanding as a community quickly turns into a chance to please their carnal nature.” Politics Ten World Controllers are the totalitarian rulers of the World State. These Alpha Plus humans have something that a great majority of the population do not: freedom of choice, normally a characteristic eliminated during development in the hatchery. Like Controllers before them, they chose to become apprentices of the World State Controlling Council, eventually becoming Controllers themselves, rather than face exile once their genetic! SS defect! ” has been discovered.
These ten are the only ones who have complete control over the destiny of the World State. Their goal is to make a stable society that they control without question. Rather than do this through shear force and intimidation, they do so through the conditioning and development of the general populace to depend on the government completely and happily. The humans within every class in the State’s society has been mentally engineered and hypnotically taught that the social situations they are brought into are the best possible to them. The Predestinators, a bureau of the State government, determines the number and class of human needed in various positions and in various parts of the world. Since people have been conditioned to perform the specific tasks that the State needs to be filled, they function happily in that capacity, knowing that they would not be happy anywhere else.

This coupled with the provision of physical desires such as promoting sexual promiscuity and Soma has guaranteed the populace’s dependency on the State.” Economics The goal of the World State is to have a stable society where the populace is completely happy and obedient. A person’s happiness is defined as the ability to satisfy needs, and success as a society is equated with economic growth and prosperity. To fulfill both needs, engineers at hatcheries develop high class humans to have the need to consume products developed by the state even if they do not need them through Hypnopaedia. Then, they develop low class humans with the need to perform their menial tasks that include working in factories that continually manufacture the products that the high class humans will buy. Thus, creating a continual cycle of producing and consuming that is genetically inherent in the society that bodes well for the World State’s economy. Besides this cycle, further Hypnopaedia is also meant to influence high level humans to throw out material objects that are not new enough and enjoy amusement that requires complex machinery that have to be manufactured and replaced once they break down.
Lower humans are also conditioned to have an interest in the countryside so they make use of the State’s transportation system.
