Although some people favor the idea of community in our society, many tend to disregard, and in fact are concerned only about themselves.
Huxley's concept of community is nearly non-existent today, and could never function in our world.
Conformity is also reached through body function surrogates; citizens must consume artificial substances that regulate body functions. People are made into different levels of intelligence Aldous Huxley wrote Brave New World in the 1930's.
Women feeling below par are prescribed a "Pregnancy Substitute" to regulate hormones. During this time the world was making its first steps in scientific and technological advances.
The importance of individualism is satirized through exaggerated psychological and physical training, the implementation of an austere caste system, and the censorship of literature and religion by a controlling government in Aldous Huxley's futuristic novel, Brave New World.
The government in Brave New World uses many techniques to ensure that the citizens of the World State are kept in conformity.
The World State's motto emphasizes the importance of the group and the subsequent unimportance of the individual.
The community of the "Brave New World" stresses the importance of society, and to the individual, the importance of contributing to its happiness, "Everyone belongs to everybody else." The idea of community is rarely implemented in modern society today.
Those who fail to conform are banished to remote locations.
Before a child is born it has already received conditioning to make certain that it each individual conforms, as the Director of Hatcheries and Conditioning explains, "All conditioning aims at that: making people like their inescapable destiny." People love their menial jobs and superficial lifestyles because they are programmed before birth to do so.
