Perfection isn't practical.
"Every one works for every one else. We can’t do without any one. Even Epsilons are useful. We couldn't do without Epsilons. Every one works for every one else. We can’t do without any one. . . (74)"
True Life: Living in a Dystopia
I read another article called American Dystopia More Reality than Fiction, and something that really made me think was when I read about The Hunger Games and basically in the plot of The Hunger Games, teens-well mostly teens-fight each other to death, and I realized that this happens in our world as well. There are so many instances where teens are putting other teens down and it gets to the point where people are killing themselves because of what others say.
Basically, our world could be crumbling right in front of our eyes, yet we are too blinded by the present to actually look and see into the future. Yeah, dystopias may seem perfect and the right way to go, but it's not like the movies. We may not be here to expirience what could be the next depression, but do you really want your children or grandchildren going through that?
All we seem to do is talk about sex..
Shakespeare and Brave New World Collide
This quote comes from The Tempest by William Shakespeare. It is also scene in chapter 13, page 191 of Brave New World. In The Tempest, during this scene, Prospero is talking to Ferdinand about having his daughter, Miranda. He is saying that Ferdinand can marry her but they must remain abstinent, and if they don't, the heavens won't bless their relationship. In Brave New World, John agrees with abstinence and that is why he isn't having sex with Lenina when they aren't married.
