With this method, the Japanese, just like the party in 1984, was able to keep everyone under control. Before long, people began to not care about their own personal freedom. For example, Winston gets upset with Julia because he saw that she really did not mind because she has no idea how freedom would feel. "History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right."
You talk. But you can’t even build huts – then you go off hunting and let the fire out”. Had the fire been going the ship might have seen the smoke and rescued the boys. This makes Ralph very angry and a clear division is made between Jack and his hunters and Ralph. Because of the savage nature brought out from within the boys, they make an irrational choice to hunt rather than the reasonable choice of keeping the fire going.
There are many ways to compare the similarities between “The Charmer” and “The Gospel of Luke”. The short story “The Charmer” and the parable from the “Gospel of Luke” revolve around greed and the ability to take advantage of others. Each involved a son who did not treat their family very well and showed a great deal of disrespect. Both of the sons were very demanding and also knew how to charm their way out of a difficult situation without facing any discipline. They knew by acting this way, they would never face any consequences and would be treated like they had done nothing wrong.

Things worsened due to lack of restrictions: “Roger, with a sense of delirious abandonment, leaned all his weight on the lever… the rock struck Piggy a glancing blow from chin to knee…” (181) Lack of authority severely triggers the boy’s transition. Hence, if there were more authority the boys could not stand a chance for such dreadful change.

Or rather, stay, that I may trample you to dust!
Although the drug soma is used to keep everyone happy and prevents rebellion, the State should not take away family, love and most importantly take way their free will. In the book Brave New World, the subject universal happiness comes into play throughout the story. The State thinks that in order to maintain its stability, they make sure that all its citizens get exactly what they want all the time. In other words, the State is designed to make people happy. According to Tom Stewart, this universal "happiness" is achieved in three ways: “The first is, the State uses biological science and psychological conditioning to make sure that each citizen is not only suited to its job but actually prefers that role to anything else.
Has Huxley written a book about what a perfect society is, or has he written about degradation humans? The society in Brave New World is functional, it protects it's people everyone is happy, and it keeps people safe. The lives of the people seem to be horrible because they have no individuality.
