On the Reservation, Lenina and Bernard are shocked to see its aged and ill residents; no one in the World State has visible signs of aging. Its technological wonders and soulless consumerism are no substitute for individual freedom, human dignity and personal integrity. Chances are that you have. The Alphas wear gray, while the Betas wear mulberry, or maroon. Foster, and you will see that no offense is so heinous as unorthodoxy of behavior. This allows people to instantly know whom they are dealing with when they meet someone on the street.
You can't make flivvers without steel—and you can't make tragedies without social instability. He feels unfulfilled writing endless propaganda doggerel. Alphas and Betas At the top of the caste hierarchy in Brave New World are the Alphas and the Betas. Sophisticated and good-natured, His Fordship is an urbane and hyperintelligent apologist for Brave New World and its velvet-gloved totalitarianism. After the ritual they meet John, a fair-skinned young man who is isolated from the rest of the village.
Success goes to his head. The Head Nurse, who was standing by a switchboard at the other end of the room, pressed down a little lever. While Lenina, disgusted with the Reservation, takes enough soma to knock her out for eighteen hours, Bernard flies to Santa Fe where he calls Mustapha Mond and receives permission to bring John and Linda back to the World State. He doesn't enjoy communal sports, solidarity services, or promiscuous sex. The roses flamed up as though with a sudden passion from within; a new and profound significance seemed to suffuse the shining pages of the books. And, lifting his hand, he gave the signal. He tries to convince them to revolt, throwing the soma out the window, and a riot results.
Oh no, I don't want to play with Delta children. And now expecting them to understand Othello! Eighty cots stood in a row against the wall. What is the plan for her? After his spontaneous bid to stir revolt among the lower castes has failed, the Savage retreats to an old abandoned lighthouse, whips himself in remorse for his sins, and gloomily cultivates his garden. The very top castes receive extra attention, while those at the bottom find their growth stunted. She ages and grows fat in the medically primitive conditions of the Reservation. Stability is the highest social virtue because it leads to lasting happiness.
Meanwhile, inside the Hatchery, Lenina chats in the bathroom with Fanny Crowne about her relationship with Henry Foster. Between the rose bowls the books were duly set out—a row of nursery quartos opened invitingly each at some gaily coloured image of beast or fish or bird. His manner is charmless, self-important and didactic. They're too stupid to be able to read or write. At the time, the class system in Britain was very divisive, though people were born into their castes rather than conditioned into them. And then we are much better than the Gammas and Deltas.
The students and even the Director himself rose automatically to the tips of their toes. As a result, while Alphas and Betas are genetically unique individuals, Gammas lack that individuality. In the process, he also confuses Lenina, who wonders why John does not wish to have sex with her. Somewhat quirky - she normally dates only one person at a time - Lenina is basically happy and well-conditioned. Gammas wear green, Deltas wear khakis, and Epsilons wear black. It is better that one should suffer than that many should be corrupted.
But then most historical facts are unpleasant. After his mother Linda's death, the Savage becomes ever more disillusioned with utopian society. The Epsilons, stunted and stupefied by oxygen deprivation and chemical treatments, are destined to perform menial labor. Helmholtz is ultimately exiled to an Island - a cold asylum for disaffected Alpha-plus non-conformists - after reading a heretical poem to his students on the virtues of solitude. The highest levels in the society are the Alphas and Betas, who are not cloned and are conditioned to feel superior to the lower castes.
Unorthodoxy threatens more than the life of a mere individual; it strikes at Society itself. John and Mond continue their conversation. They are highly intelligent, extremely refined, and very good looking. Gammas The Gammas, on the other hand, feel much more disconnected from the higher castes. Plot Overview The novel opens in the Central London Hatching and Conditioning Centre, where the Director of the Hatchery and one of his assistants, Henry Foster, are giving a tour to a group of boys.
