Summary Chapter 16

  • Bernard, John and Helmholtz are brought to Mond's office and Mond assumes that John doesn't really like the civilization
  • John agrees but also states that he does like some things in the World State (the sound of music for instance)
  • Mond quotes a line from Shakespeare's The Tempest and John is pleasantly surprised
  • however, Mond points out that Shakespeare is forbidden for several reasons
    • literature tends to last and in a world of consumerism, people constantly need new things; thus, newness is valued above literary or moral value
    • people in the World State are not capable of understanding Shakespeare because his storylines revolve around happenings that the citizens of the World State have never experienced
    • John suggests to create something new with the passion and intensity of Shakespeare, but about topics that these people could understand
    • Helmholtz chimes in that this is exactly what he has been wanting to write
    • but Mond is adamant that this just isn't possible because the people wouldn't understand it
  • John asks why they can't all be Alphas
  • Mond explains that the government needs people who happily perform the tasks they are required to do; hence, real Alpha's would be degraded and made stupid in order to do trivial tasks
  • he underlines that with an experiment that took place on an island a while ago: only Alphas populated it and a civil war broke out because people weren't happy with the tasks they needed to do
  • also, Mond states that the people are happy doing their menial jobs because they find them comforting
  • taking this away from them would result in chaos
  • even science is a possible enemy, although no one really knows what science is except for Mond
  • Mond postulates that he knows what science is; however, he does not explain it to his audience
  • he used to be a scientist and he invented something that got him into trouble - because of that he was offered the choice between being exiled and becoming a World Controller
  • however, one can conclude that science does not really exist in the World State because the search for truth interferes with happiness
  • Mond then tells Helmholtz and Bernard that they are going to be exiled: Bernard begs and pleads to not being sent away
  • three men take him away and sedate him
  • Mond tells the others that exile is actually a reward because those islands are inhabited by interesting people who all do not fit into the World State society
  • Mond actually envies Helmholtz and Bernard
  • Helmholtz wonders why that is and why Mond did not choose exile when offered the choice
  • upon that, Mond states that he rather manages the happiness of others
  • in addition, Mond explains that people like Bernard or Helmholtz would have to be killed if it weren't for the island
  • when asked if he would like to go to a tropical island, Helmholtz says he'd rather go to an island with bad climate as this might help with writing
  • Mond suggests that he should go to the Falkland Islands and Helmholtz accepts

Function

  • consumerism as central piece of Brave New World
    • Shakespeare does not contribute to consumer behavior
    • shows a mirror of our world: the ever-increasing value of consumerism
    • consumerism as the consumer's drive to gratify his or her appetites
    • consumerism according to Huxley is infantile
    • Mond equals happiness to stability
    • stability means economic stability - the continuous cycle of production and consumption
