Every community strives for stability and civilized behavior from their citizens. Stability and community both play a very big roll in a civilized society. In Aldous Huxley's Brave New World, the state motto: "Community, Identity, Stability" encompasses not only the state goal, but also the techniques needed to reach these goals. Community is the first part of the Brave New World's state motto. Community is also the first technique used to achieve the state motto. States dividing their castes into separate communities that are dependent on each other helps to reach a world community. All clones are separated into many groups by their caste to work as one organized community. Every caste works to benefit each other, bringing them all together as a stable community. "Every one works for every one else. We can't do without anyone. Even Epsilons are useful." (Huxley 74) This action of community helps to enable the identity and stability part of the state motto. Identity is also a very affective technique used to achieve and encompass the state's motto. Again, the caste system makes up a part of the state motto by giving each caste a separate identity. The lower castes of clones are conditioned to identify with a specific job and all the aspects of that job. The Alphas are also conditioned to identify with only one specific job. Each caste can be identified by the specific color that they are assigned to wear. "Gammas are stupid. They all wear green, and Delta Children wear Khaki" (Huxley 27). The lower castes are all clones, but each caste has a separate identity. The identities of each caste helps to keep them separate but also helps to keep them a stable community. Stability is the last step in the process to reach the state's motto. Stability is ultimately achieved through community and identity. The state achieves stability by creating a stable environment for the people of the Brave New World. Through conditioning, the clones are adjusted to the conditions of their jobs, making them satisfied with their jobs, causing stability in the work environment. By making everyone in each caste type equal, they also create a kind of stability. Soma is also a very big part of the stability in the Brave New World. The awareness of each caste knowing that every other caste is dependent of each other enforces stability as well. "No civilization without social stability. No social stability without individual stability" (Huxley 42). Totalitarian government also enforces their stability. The stability is achieved successfully through the environment that they have created for their world. By using community, identity, and stability as techniques they reach the Brave New World's state motto. The Brave New World strives for, and achieves, stability and civilized behavior from their citizens by enforcing the states motto. Stability, community, and identity are the biggest part of the Brave New World's society.
