The Use of Technology to Control Society

Brave New World warns of the dangers of giving the state control over new and powerful technologies. One illustration of this theme is the rigid control of reproduction through technological and medical intervention, including the surgical removal of ovaries, the Bokanovsky Process, and hypnopaedic conditioning. Another is the creation of complicated entertainment machines that generate both harmless leisure and the high levels of consumption and production that are the basis of the World State s stability. Soma is a third e!ample of the kind of medical, biological, and psychological technologies that Brave New World critici"es most sharply. #t is important to recogni"e the distinction between science and technology. Whereas the State talks about progress and science, what it really means is the bettering of technology, not increased scientific e!ploration and e!perimentation. $he state uses science as a means to build technology that can create a seamless, happy, superficial world through things such as the %feelies.& $he state censors and limits science, however, since it sees the fundamental basis behind science, the search for truth, as threatening to the State s control. $he State s focus on happiness and stability means that it uses the results of scientific research, inasmuch as they contribute to technologies of control, but does not support science itself.
The Consumer Society

#t is important to understand that Brave New World is not simply a warning about what could happen to society if things go wrong, it is also a satire of the society in which 'u!ley e!isted, and which still e!ists today. While the attitudes and behaviors of World State citi"ens at first appear bi"arre, cruel, or scandalous, many clues point to the conclusion that the World State is simply an e!treme(but logically developed(version of our society s economic values, in which individual happiness is defined as the ability to satisfy needs, and success as a society is e)uated with economic growth and prosperity.
The Incompatibility of Happiness and Truth

Brave New World is full of characters who do everything they can to avoid facing the truth about their own situations. $he almost universal use of the drug soma is probably the most pervasive e!ample of such willful self*delusion. Soma clouds the realities of the present and replaces them with happy hallucinations, and is thus a tool for promoting social stability. But even Shakespeare can be used to avoid facing the truth, as +ohn demonstrates by his insistence on viewing ,enina through the lens of Shakespeare s world, first as a +uliet and later as an %impudent strumpet.& According to -ustapha -ond, the World State prioriti"es happiness at the e!pense of truth by design. he believes that people are better off with happiness than with truth. What are these two abstract entities that -ond /u!taposes0 #t seems clear enough from -ond s argument that happiness refers to the immediate gratification of every citi"en s desire for food, se!, drugs, nice clothes, and other consumer items. #t is less clear what -ond means by truth, or specifically what truths he sees the World State society as covering up. 1rom -ond s discussion with +ohn, it is possible to identify two main types of truth that the World State seeks to eliminate. 1irst, as -ond s own past indicates, the World State controls and muffles all efforts by citi"ens to gain any sort of scientific, or empirical truth. Second, the government attempts to destroy all kinds of %human& truths, such as love, friendship, and personal connection. $hese two types of truth are )uite different from each other. ob/ective truth involves coming to a definitive conclusion of fact, while a %human& truth can only be e!plored, not defined. 2et both kinds of

truth are united in the passion that an individual might feel for them. As a young man, -ustapha -ond became enraptured with the delight of making discoveries, /ust as +ohn loves the language and intensity of Shakespeare. $he search for truth then, also seems to involve a great deal of individual effort, of striving and fighting against odds. $he very will to search for truth is an individual desire that the communal society of Brave New World, based as it is on anonymity and lack of thought, cannot allow to e!ist. $ruth and individuality thus become entwined in the novel s thematic structure.
The Dangers of an All-Powerful State

,ike 3eorge Orwell s 1984, this novel depicts a dystopia in which an all*powerful state controls the behaviors and actions of its people in order to preserve its own stability and power. But a ma/or difference between the two is that, whereas in 1984 control is maintained by constant government surveillance, secret police, and torture, power in Brave New World is maintained through technological interventions that start before birth and last until death, and that actually change what people want. $he government of 1984 maintains power through force and intimidation. $he government of Brave New World retains control by making its citi"ens so happy and superficially fulfilled that they don t care about their personal freedom. #n Brave New World the conse)uences of state control are a loss of dignity, morals, values, and emotions(in short, a loss of humanity.
Motifs Motifs are recurring structures, contrasts, and literary devices that can help to develop and inform the texts major themes. Pneumatic

$he word pneumatic is used with remarkable fre)uency to describe two things. ,enina s body and chairs. Pneumatic is an ad/ective that usually means that something has air pockets or works by means of compressed air. #n the case of the chairs 4in the feely theater and in -ond s office5, it probably means that the chairs cushions are inflated with air. #n ,enina s case, the word is used by both 'enry 1oster and Benito 'oover to describe what she s like to have se! with. She herself remarks that her lovers usually find her %pneumatic,& patting her legs as she does so. #n reference to ,enina it means well*rounded, balloon*like, or bouncy, in reference to her flesh, and in particular her bosom. 'u!ley is not the only writer to use the word pneumatic in this sense, although it is an unusual usage. $he use of this odd word to describe the physical characteristics of both a woman and a piece of furniture underscores the novel s theme that human se!uality has been degraded to the level of a commodity.
ord! "#y ord!$ "%ear of &ur ord!$ etc'

$hroughout Brave New World, the citi"ens of the World State substitute the name of 'enry 1ord, the early twentieth*century industrialist and founder of the 1ord -otor 6ompany, wherever people in our own world would say ,ord& 4i.e., 6hrist5. $his demonstrates that even at the level of casual conversation and habit, religion has been replaced by reverence for technology( specifically the efficient, mechani"ed factory production of goods that 'enry 1ord pioneered.
Alienation

$he motif of alienation provides a counterpoint to the motif of total conformity that pervades the World State. Bernard -ar!, 'elmholt" Watson, and +ohn are alienated from the World State,

each for his own reasons. Bernard is alienated because he is a misfit, too small and powerless for the position he has been conditioned to en/oy. 'elmholt" is alienated for the opposite reason. he is too intelligent even to play the role of an Alpha Plus. +ohn is alienated on multiple levels and at multiple sites. not only does the #ndian community re/ect him, but he is both unwilling and unable to become part of the World State. $he motif of alienation is one of the driving forces of the narrative. it provides the main characters with their primary motivations.
Se(

Brave New World abounds with references to se!. At the heart of the World State s control of its population is its rigid control over se!ual mores and reproductive rights. 7eproductive rights are controlled through an authoritarian system that sterili"es about two*thirds of women, re)uires the rest to use contraceptives, and surgically removes ovaries when it needs to produce new humans. $he act of se! is controlled by a system of social rewards for promiscuity and lack of commitment. +ohn, an outsider, is tortured by his desire for ,enina and her inability to return his love as such. $he conflict between +ohn s desire for love and ,enina s desire for se! illustrates the profound difference in values between the World State and the humanity represented by Shakespeare s works.
Sha)espeare

Shakespeare provides the language through which +ohn understands the world. $hrough +ohn s use of Shakespeare, the novel makes contact with the rich themes e!plored in plays like The Tempest. #t also creates a stark contrast between the utilitarian simplicity and inane babble of the World State s propaganda and the nuanced, elegant verse of a time %before 1ord.& Shakespeare s plays provide many e!amples of precisely the kind of human relations(passionate, intense, and often tragic(that the World State is committed to eliminating.
Symbols Symbols are objects, characters, figures, and colors used to represent abstract ideas or concepts. Soma

$he drug soma is a symbol of the use of instant gratification to control the World State s populace. #t is also a symbol of the powerful influence of science and technology on society. As a kind of %sacrament,& it also represents the use of religion to control society. 8ori9ten/e tehnologi/e "a kontrolu dru9tva :rli novi svi/et upo"orava na opasnosti od davan/a dr;avnu kontrolu nad novim i mo<nim tehnologi/ama . +edan prim/er ove teme /erigidna kontrola reprodukci/e kro" tehnolo9ke i medicinske intervenci/e , ukl/u=u/u<i kirur9ko odstran/ivan/e /a/nika , u Bokanovsky proces, a hypnopaedic ure>a/ . ?rugi /estvaran/e kompliciranih "abavnih stro/eva ko/i stvara/u oba be"a"lenu ra"onodu i visoke ra"ine potro9n/e i proi"vodn/e ko/i sutemel/ stabilnosti Sv/etske dr;ave .
