The novel “Brave New World” and the image of Teddy Roosevelt’s election of 1904 campaign propaganda both explore the dystopian element that individuality and dissent are bad. In Brave New World the World State follows by the slogan, “Community, Identity, Stability” (1). Everyone lives by this motto, and of course is conditioned to memorize and follow by it. This is a very straightforward saying that gets to the point of individuality being something people do not want to have in their lives. Community is something that combines with identity to create a stable and happy life that everyone wants to live. Prosperity is another thing they condition everyone into thriving for. The other thing they condition everyone to believe is that, “Everybody’s happy nowadays” (29). Being happy means never having any pain in your life or troubles to live through. This seems like it should be in a utopia but in reality, never feeling pain means everyone is the same and there are no individuals. Individuality is built through struggles, pain and hardships and if you have none of that then there is no individuality in the world. With everyone identifying the same, the community is more stable making for happiness and no individuals. In the image of Roosevelt’s 1904 propaganda you can see a similar pattern with his slogan of, “National Unity, Prosperity, Advancement”. He used this slogan to “brainwash” people into voting for him because it is promised that this is what will continue if they do vote for him. His words are less straightforward and more pathos driven because that is how our world is ran. These words are also very promising to hear as a nation. National Unity is similar to everyone being equal and becoming one, otherwise known as having no individuality. This is like Community in the fact that everyone comes together and individuality is bad. Prosperity was another part of his campaign because happiness and success is always something people want. He said he would, “...assure continued prosperity”. This is very similar to the phrase the World State conditions people to believe that everlasting happiness is the best way to live life just like living prosperously.
