The novel “Brave New World” and the article “Imagine a Perfect World. . .and Wake Up” both explore the dystopian element of having an illusion of a perfect utopian world. Every person in this world today is striving for a perfect world. Bernard is getting sick of the government controlling everyone and states, “I’d rather be myself, he said. Myself and nasty.” (89). Rather than, “I was unhappy; that was another reason not to follow.” (138). Bernard is pointing out how being yourself is a more important trait than having someone else control your feelings in a perfect world. Nobody else should tell you what makes you happy and unhappy. According to Chris Campbell in “Imagine a Perfect World...and Wake up”, he’s pointing out how you have control over your life and the government should never take it over. He explains, “And governments exert no control whatsoever over your assets.” and “Alas, dear reader, there’s no such thing as a perfect world.” which is announcing that nobody lives in a perfect world, but you can always strive for it and continue to do what makes you the person you are and what makes you happy. In conclusion, there are 2 worlds, dystopian and utopian worlds. There is no such thing as a perfect world and there are many things in this world today that causes a dystopian world. Being yourself and being happy though, equals a perfect utopian world.
