Community, Identity, Stability In The Brave New World By Aldous Huxley

Good Essays
A motto is a motivational principle that drives one to achieve their own goal. It basically consists of short words that give a gigantic meaning to the person. In the Brave New World by Aldous Huxley, the society uses “Community, Identity, Stability” as their motto. I find that this motto is quite interesting because all those three words have similar rhymes at the end. There are several ways shown in the novel on how the society lives based on the motto. For ‘Community’, the society in the World State uses caste system to differentiate each other. There are five castes – Alpha, Beta, Gamma, Delta and Epsilon. As stated by the Director when he repeats this phrase for countless times, “Alpha children wear grey. They work much harder than we do, because they’re so frightfully clever. …….. And Epsilons are still worse. They’re too stupid …show more content…
I personally believe that community means a group of people who live under a government which does not discriminate their own people. Without being brainwashed and influenced by any aspect, people should accept each other regardless of their statuses and races. Classification among people occurs when the authority gives different treatment based on their spectrum of likeness towards them. For identity, I think it should be portrayed on the individual; not on the caste or on the group of people. Everyone is born with diverse abilities and talents. If we were to live the same way as in the World State, there will be no competition at all among each other as everyone is the same. Consequently, the world will be a boring place to live in. Lastly, I am certain that having emotion actually stabilizes the community. There will be no happiness if one does not understand the meaning of love. Having real family, friends and significant other makes one appreciate the meaning of life, hence they will not be lonely and their lives will ultimately be

    In the society of Brave New World, marriage and fidelity are foreign concepts, yet Bernard begins to realize that true love and happiness come to those who value each other for who they are and not based solely on sexual impulses. Another reason why relationships in this society do not produce true happiness is because relationships and life in general are completely self­centered. In the society of Brave New World, people don’t help other people. They are conditioned to work for themselves, eliminate sorrow for themselves, and use others for self satisfaction.

    The motifs in The Color Purple help build up the main idea or theme because they are happy and positive. Being sad, angry, or negative, hasn't gotten anybody anywhere, so it wouldn't build a story. Friendship is included because people can't do everything by themselves. Sometimes people just need someone they trust to help them, friends are needed by everyone, even if they don't realize it. Next, nothing could be accomplished without hope.…

    The veil of ignorance would mean that no one could be held back by any predestined misfortune he or she may suffer from. Behind the veil of ignorance, every person in society would be equal because they would not be aware of their class status, social position, wealth, attributes, gender, or race, although this is a completely hypothetical society. This can also be considered as the original position, similar to but still different from, the human state of nature. Since no one would know all of these circumstances, no one would be able to determine where they will end up in society, and that would result in everyone making decisions, which would be fair for all. This society would be much more generalized, rather than being catered to each individual’s own situation.…

    With this in mind there needs to be a hierarchy structure in society that is as egalitarian as it is accepting of new members. On that first point gender and race equality should be a non issue. As for the second point all levels of society should be accepting to members, whether they pull themselves up or fall down. More that point, position in society should be earned not inherited to a degree, particularly with regards to money. So long as everyone is offered a base level of opportunities any further opportunities and the individual 's position in society should be based on the individual effort and initiative one puts into their life.…
