Reflection of Brave New World
After reading Brave New World I am left with several feelings. I will start with the bad feelings. One feeling that stuck with me was a feeling of disgust. To be honest this book pissed me off. I understand what Huxley is trying to do in this book, but why in this fashion? To begin with I hated the plot. The characters, the events, and the society itself made me furious. I didn’t enjoy the story at all. I thought it was a waste of a beautiful forming plot. The ending is what really ticked me off. I cannot believe Huxley would do such a thing and end his book on such a ghastly manner. But with all this hate comes joy and acceptance.
I believe the reason Huxley wrote such a horrible story was to show the horrible things he was trying to get his readers to see. We see that Huxley made a society where some of humanity’s ills are present even though everything bad was supposed to be already eliminated. I understand that Huxley was trying to open his reader’s eyes so they can do what he did, which was question society. I highly praise Huxley for doing this and opening my eyes a bit wider than they already were.
Another of the things that really stuck on to me was the fact that Huxley saw the government and society as brainwashers. I used to be like most people and just accept things as they are, but then something hit me one day and I realized I was living in a pile of crap known as our beautiful United States. Huxley didn’t open my eyes but as I said before it sure did help reinforce my theory on life. Huxley’s views may or may not be as extreme as mine but I see why he wrote this horrible beautiful novel. I loved the fact that he sees society as brainwashed people in his book and in his own society and ours also. I can honestly say that our society is somewhat o a brave new world. Try it. Question any person in our society about delicate yet firm believes our society has and see the rejection of the idea. One example I always use...
