Stand up for his beliefs to Mond. Chooses to leave. Society follows him. Still cannot reform. Commits suicide. Huxley's BNW society places the good the majority over the good of the individual. In order to have a society of stability and happiness, the people there had to sacrifice individual liberties and personal freedoms. These include: religion, family, love, art, literature and most importantly, the freedom of thought. They gave up truth for constant happiness. When happiness goes astray, the citizens resort to soma and everything is forgotten. The people of the BNW society sacrificed their freedom to society and in this way they conformed to it. They follow the rules and do so obediently as society wishes to maintain stability and happiness. Those who did not conform or could not conform died.
