The Criticism Behind 'Brave New World"

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

In the book 'A Brave New World', Huxley has created a hypothetical world where problems do not exist. However to eradicate all problems in the world, some changes had to be made in the lives of every human being and in how the world was governed, such as, substituting families by fertilization clinics where human beings are created and brought up by a group of inspectors, which are responsible for teaching every child that everyone is happy in whatever job the have and that every person is responsible to buy and produce as much as possible for the world to by a happier and better place to live in. ...read more.

Conclusion

I believe his intention is the criticize the world in which we are living today and to make us reflect in how we shouldn't allow materialism to take over our lives and replace our feelings of love to a cold and relentless idea that "a consumer world is a better world".
