The novel a Brave New World and a major issue taking place in third world countries both explore a dystopian element of restricting human rights and individuality. Individuality is what causes people to invent things or come up with other new ideas. Without it, society wouldn’t be where it is. In the novel, Brave New World, the human population is separated into separate groups of different classes, the individuals within these groups may not change who they are or have their own ideas due to “conditioning” at birth, “...what would it be like if I could, if I were free—not enslaved by my conditioning.” (91) Bernard explains how he feels contained, due to his previous conditioning which caused him to turn out a squirmy, awkward man. He has had his individualism taken away from him against his will. When people have their individuality taken away, it lowers their overall view on life and it causes issues within the future. In third world countries, there are people whose individual liberties are being taken away against their own wishes, “These liberties… are commonly known as fundamental rights… are limited”. In conclusion, to suppress one’s individuality is to take away their freedom against their wishes.
