Technology in the Brave New World mirror our own life in America today
How does the use of technology in the Brave New World mirror our own life in America today (Drugs/ life-enhancing medicines for health and youth/ genetics in human creation/entertainment and recreation) Use 5 quotes w/ analysis as the center of your argument in the essay.
More Details;
Brave New World warns of the dangers of giving the state control over new and powerful technologies.
One illustration of this theme is the rigid control of reproduction through technological and medical intervention.
This includes the surgical removal of ovaries, the Bokanovsky Process, and hypnopaedic conditioning.
In addition, another is the creation of complicated entertainment machines that generate both harmless leisure.
The high levels of consumption and production that are the basis of the World State’s stability.
Soma is a third example of the kind of medical, biological, and psychological technologies that Brave New World criticizes most sharply.
Whereas the State talks about progress and science, what it really means is the bettering of technology.
Not increased scientific exploration and experimentation.
The state uses science as a means to build technology that can create a seamless, happy, superficial world. Through things such as the “feelies.”
In addition, the state censors and limits science.
However, since it sees the fundamental basis behind science, the search for truth, as threatening to the State’s control.
The State’s focus on happiness and stability means that it uses the results of scientific research, inasmuch as they contribute to technologies of control, but does not support science itself.
