In today’s society the misuse of technology is very important. It changes the way people live and how some people view the world today. Brave New World is a novel based on the misuse of technology, in the novel they made humans in a lab and that’s how the world worked. Aldous Huxley the author of the novel wrote this book in 1931. Huxley wrote this book to show the change in society and show the manipulation that was going on during that time period. This issue personally is huge mainly because it affects people’s lives every day. With technology growing more and more each day of course it is going to be hard to try keeping an eye on all of today’s new technology but this problem could be solved by testing the new products to make sure they are safe.
Aldous Huxley’s message in Brave New World is that the misuse of technology is wrong and that it was still misused during his time period. During this time they tried to use reproductive technology, sleep learning, and psychological manipulation. Huxley was correct to believe the misuse of technology, which was a significant issue during the 1930s and today, and can be solved by limiting the technology that can be used.
In the novel Brave New World one of the main issues that is addressed is the misuse of technology. For example “Reducing the number of revolutions per minute” Mr. Foster explained. “The surrogate goes slower; therefore passes through the lung at a lower intervals which gives the embryo less oxygen. Nothing like oxygen shortage for keeping an embryo below par” (Mr. Foster 1.14). This shows that Mr. Foster gives the embryo less oxygen to make them not be able to breathe as much as the others which will harm the embryos and make them not as smart as the others.
Furthermore, another line explains “we also predestine and condition. We decant our babies as socialized human beings, as alphas or epsilons as future sewage workers or future directors of hatcheries” (The Director 1.13). They trick them into thinking that they have a choice with what they want to do with their lives. When really they don’t and their life is already planned out for them and the Director just uses them.
The director programs the embryos to where they like certain things by the time they are born. For instance in this quote “we condition the masses to hate the country” Concluded the Director. “But simultaneously we condition them to love all country sports. At the same time, we see to it that all country sports shall entail the use of elaborate apparatus. So that they consume manufactured articles as well as transport. Hence those electric shocks” (The Director 2.23). They torture the people by making them like outside sports but not liking the country and they practically control them that way.
Also, one excerpt asserts “observe” said the Director triumphantly, “observe” “books and loud noises, flowers and electric shocks. Already in the infant mind these couples were compromisingly linked; and after two hundred repetitions of the same or a similar lesson would be weeded indissolubly. What man has joined, nature is powerless to put asunder” (The Director 2.21). The Director in this quote shows his use of technology by them inserting things into the minds of babies when they are born, this is how he shows his power.
In addition, one excerpt declares “one egg, one embryo, one adult normality. But boanovskified egg will bud, will proliferate, and will divide. From eighty to ninety six buds, and every bud will grow into a perfectly formed embryo, and every embryo into a full sized adult. Making ninety six human beings grow where only one grew before. Process” (The Director 1.6). With this process instead of one baby being born from a fertilized egg ninety six will be born. Which would speed of the process of creating Alpha’s, Beta’s, Gamma’s, Delta’s, and Epsilon’s for The Director.
Above all, in this last quote they show how they misuse technology and how they only use it for their good. “The lower the caste,” said Mr. Foster, “the shorter the oxygen. The first organ affected was the brain. After that the skeleton.

Social ControlSocial Control Both Michel Foucault and Truffaut's depiction of a disciplinary society are nearly identical. But Truffaut's interpretation sees more room for freedom within the disciplinary society. The difference stems from Foucault's belief that the social control in disciplinary pervades all elements of life and there is no escape from this type of control. Foucault's work deals mostly with power and his conception of it. Like Nietzsche, Foucault sees power not as a fixed quantity of physic
