The World State uses hypnotic practices to educate the society on how to live just like how technology always feeds us with information. In hypnotic practices, a voice under the pillow constantly feeds information into the ear of the person sleeping telling them how to live life. This relates to how the high-speed technology today always bombards us with new information. Advertisements constantly feed us with information on how to live our lives to ensure that we spend money on their products. By presenting us a perfect world, we crave to live like that; therefore, we buy their products. Because of the hypnotics, the society in Brave New World lives life the way government wants them to live it. We strive to live in the most perfect way possible, just like in Brave New World. Hypnotics taught people how to live life in Brave New World, and in our society, advertisements and television have shown us how to live life.
Even though social discrimination may not seem as prominent in our lives as it does in Brave New World, it still exists. The society in Brave New World consists of 5 distinct social classes: Alphas, Betas, Gammas, Deltas, and Epsilons. Higher castes look at lower classes in disgust. They do not appreciate all the hard work that the working class does because hypnotics has taught them not to.
