The ending of the story In the second part of the book the author talks about an area, which has remained untouched by the state: it is set in Mew Mexico. There old values and freedom are kept alive.
The main character of this second part is John - the Savage. He grows up outside of the World State in New Mexico Savage Reservation. Lenina (Beta vaccination worker) and Bernard visit the Savage Reservation together and meet John, the son of director (Ford). He comes with them to London but there he gets rejected by the World State Society.
Once John's mother dies he experiences a mental breakdown. After he is denied to return to his society, he runs away in isolations. He lives like an outsider in a lighthouse and looks for God and poetry. John realises he will never have the freedom he is longing for and at the end he hangs himself.
Honestly, some of my predictions were true. Bernard was dismissed from the post he held. He, Alpha-Plus, to whom so much was given, and from whom, so much was expected, betrayed the trust of the community by his heretical views on solidarity and soma, by his refusal to obey the teachings of Ford.

The messages 1 3 The danger of technology Scientific adavances may give more power to states to control and change the way people think and act The cost of happiness In the era of new Ford feelings are refused. The only source of happiness is soma. And the price of it is sacrifice of family, love, and motherhood. The fear of losing Individual identity The World State depends on the idea that everyone works for everyone else. The society must have unity. 2
What the book made me think about The dystopia got me thinkimg about today's generation and all the advantages we have now. We do not have to hide our identity, behave like evryone else, and the most vital point is that our personal life and emotions are not controlled by anyone. At not time did people feel free and mobile. Besides, Aldous Huxley's idea was about how society would one day be taken over by technology. There is doubt that modern devices became a natural part of our lives. Speaking personally, science has not a negative impact on our humanity. Whether this will remain in the future or not is a matter of time.
