You didn't read the book. It's more like "Pleasure bad when it distracts you from a tyrannical caste system".

Nobody here seems to have understood Brave New World so I’ll explain the themes to you OP.

The main theme is of course the danger of a mass humanity created and designed in the same style of our mass manufactured goods. Hence the references to Henry Ford. Of course the technology is only one side of the problem as the other highlighted theme is of course the inability of utilitarian and materialistic philosophy to fulfill the higher aspirations of man for transcendence and purpose.

Important sub points are obviously the isolation of those who think different. The nature of sex and human pair bonding. The perverse nature of insecurity and jealousy. Finally there is a funny maybe not intentional point about women being totally incapable of being independent of society.

The point of BNW is that people become so infatuated with meaningless entertainment that they lose the ability to question their surroundings. Marvel is soulless fucking brain rot designed by committee to keep you distracted with pretty colors and meaningless quasi-drama. You have fallen for the trap of corporate art, either renounce your desire for neatly packaged platitudes or kill yourself.
>>
>>20364799
it's less about pleasure being good or bad and more about suffering being abolished to create good goy cattle drones like you
>>
>>20364799
Bnw is 1984 if George Orwell had any political ideas other than "state bad, freedum gud"
>>
>>20367734
1984 is a victim fantasy where the state can be whatever ideology you dont like and winston is you.
Its a political rorsharch test
>>
Like The Handmaid's Tale, I failed to see how the world this book portrayed was meant to be a dystopia. I especially liked the calming drugs the police shot out of firehoses at people who got too emotional and caused a scene. Tell me that wouldn't be a great solution for BLM rioters.

Not a single woman character in the book ever showed any personal growth, introspection, or attempt to question the norms of society. This maybe a simple over sight but it also might be a point about women generally being unable to question the prevailing beliefs of their group.
