The power to controlothers is the power to make the society happy Personal identity is lostwhen social class is predetermined. Character development of John "I was wondering," said the Savage, "why you had them at all-seeing that you can get whatever you want out of these bottles. Why don't you make everybody an Alpha DeltaPlus while you're about it." double click to change this header text! John's views contradictthe reality of the World State and results to his asking questions like the example above as well as questioning everythingthis "brave new world" does in society. He is unable to connect with others and has a hard time being himself in this new world. The predetermined social class causes people to only interact with others like them and no one is like John. His eventual suicide develops thistheme because it shows that he lost himself because society was one rather than individuals and one could not function in a society without personal identity. "And that is the secret of happinessand virtue-liking what you've got todo. All conditioning aims at that: making people like their unescapable social destiny."-the Director This shows how both the themes are relatedbecause the World State has controlled theirsocial caste, taking away their personal identity, while also controlling the way they think of themselves to make them "happy". "It makes me feel as though...I were more me, if you see what I mean. More on my own, not so completely a part of something else. Not just a cell in the social body." The theme is revealed through the authors use of synecdoche to refer to Bernard as only a part of the society because he has been controlledto live a certain life based on his social caste,but he is going against those ideasto show that he has his own personal identity that he has not been able to express because it has been lost by the government. "Everyone belongs to everyoneelse, after all." The repetition of "everyone belongingto everyone" helps develop the theme in that it emphasizes that everyone gets what anyone needs and everyone does whatever they have to to please others and that is what makes society happy. Huxley's word choice of the repeated terms condition and teach, for example, "..teach them tolove it."imply that the government is forcing ideasinto everyone's mind to make them do what the"society needs" and believe they are happy. Huxley repeats those words and develops the themeof controlling people to get the end result of community happiness.
