A comparison of societies in 1984 by george orwell and brave new world by aldous huxley

We shall squeeze you empty and then we shall fill you with ourselves. They address many of the same issues—language, control, production, sex, and so forth—and simply treat them in quite different ways.

Individuals that are stuck in this illusion can no longer see reality.

A comparison of societies in 1984 by george orwell and brave new world by aldous huxley

For both authors, a necessary action in their future societies is the abolition of the past. Humans in both societies had no other role model but the regime in power; no god, no religion, not one outcast leader.

Just as history is effectively abolished in both societies, so is the family. Society is broken down into castes or social classes that in turn effects how people are treated.

To both authors, this lack of decent human feeling means the death of art. With a ban of creative or artistic activity, there will definitely be a change in society. The Savage is unable to understand the emotions he feels towards his mother's lover, until he reads the works of Shakespeare and learns the words with which to express himself. Ford was admired because of his improvement in mass production; an improvement that gave birth to this society of humans that were incubated in factories. While being guided around the island, the whole reservation has gathered for a ceremony in the center of the island, and Lenina sees sickness, age, scars, pain, and a woman breast feeding their children. Huxley portrays a nation of pleasure addicted, mindless beings merely existing. Grotesquely, young children are 'conditioned' by visiting wards of the dying and being fed chocolate eclairs afterwards. They do not strive. The style and presentation of these novels varies quite considerably.

In Brave New World Huxley shows that human can be tamed, and that control can be bought about through freedom rather than oppression. This keeps everyone focused on shallow things like physical pleasure without looking for a deeper meaning in life.

In Orwell's world the family is not obsolete, but it has been subverted. But it was all right, everything was all right, the struggle was finished. Buy this point is apparent that through the dehumanisation of an individual, control can be obtained.

Winston and John were forced to rebel in different ways based on the nature of the society they lived in.
