Brave New World

 


Visitors: 203

Back in nineteen thirty two, Aldous Huxley, one of the most prominent English writers, wrote a book ‘The Brave New World’ in which he made an attempt to predict the prospect of our world six hundred years into the future. Later on it became clear that this attempt of his actually depicted real life future less than fifty years after the book was published.

Indeed most of the aspects described in the book depict the present life we’re living today. But I will go deeper into that later. Now let us see how ‘The Brave New World’ depicts future.

People are described as happy creatures that don’t get sick, that are born in test tubes and are taught everything while they sleep. There is no emotion or privacy, human life is controlled by the government. Everyone looks young until they are sixty years old. After they rich that age people are sent out to hospital to die there.

The main Entertainment for people is to visit feelies and enjoy looking at pictures and also, no matter how weird it will sound, smell them. Another great entertainment is sex. But people of the future don’t get married, they don’t have love. People take a drug called soma when they hang out with friends, and go to sleep for two weeks instead of going on vocations.

People are divided into five classes. The higher class travels everywhere on helicopters, while a rocket can take you from London to the US in only five-six hours. Doesn’t this remind you something?
