In the text there is a saying that is brought up by Mustapha Mond “sacrificing real feelings and emotional attachments is the price the society has to pay for stability.”.Mustapha Mond had experienced feelings and real emotions that aren’t given when given their daily soma. He had gave up those feelings to keep the their social stability on track. While living in World State individuals who work against the society and threaten to have the stability of society ruined by introducing any feelings, or anything from outside are immediately banished and outcasted onto a island as a punishment. In their society there is a process known as Bokanovsky Process. This process is a genetic science that they use to make their 100 sets of babies. “One egg, one embryo, one adult-normality. But a bokanovskified egg will bud, will proliferate, will divide. From eight to ninety-six buds, and every bud will grow into a perfectly formed embryo, and every embryo into a full-sized adult.
How it works
Making ninety-six human beings grow where only one grew before. Progress. “ In this text form the book it shows how they genetically create babies, place them in bottles and take them through different processes to make them grow as if a normal child would naturally.. While making these genes they create multiple babies of the same genes sometimes more than 100’s. As young children they are introduced into one another and are taught to experiment and learn through touch and looking while being naked. They are taught that being sexual is healthy and good,and that to get people to feel a certain way such as “orgy porgy” or pleasure during intimacy was an very high goal and success. Soma was their daily medication they had to take that allowed them an specific amount of emotions, that only World State directors thought would keep them stable, and also worked as a birth control to avoid unnecessary pregnancies.
When a woman turned out to have been pregnant they had a clinic the society has and have an abortion. After that their they take their soma and don’t remember their tragedy of losing their child. When it comes to people making bad decisions throughout their lives, or someone experiences anything that has to do with what’s outside World State like non-soma emotions which in a way they find as a threat to their society, they find it a danger to their stabilized society. Those who put the society in danger are immediately outcasts and are sent to an island. The book Brave New World is telling about a society that is based upon social stability called World State, and the sacrifices they grow through to stay stable. They are cutting out all natural life experiences and making it a constant system of living, sex and dying. While reading the book you will learn that their society is restrained and kept from the real purpose of human life. What World State is willing to sacrifice to have a stable community doesn’t give them a purpose it’s an endless system with no purpose to the world but to keep running and never stop.
