The article “Caste is Not Past” and the dystopian novel “Brave New World” both explore the dystopian element of bureaucratic control and how your standing in society can affect your quality of life. The different castes in “Brave New World” are Alphas, Betas, Gammas, Deltas, and Epsilons. They use “Elementary Class Consciousness” to teach the children that “Alpha children wear grey. They work much harder than we do,” (27). Huxley explains how each caste is different from one another and how some are better and some are worse. The Alphas are at the top and are treated like the hardest workers and bottom class epsilons are treated as “worse” than everyone else or the “untouchables”. Rather than all being clumped into one social status, we are all better or worse than each other. Huxley portrays the differences between the five classes to warn us about the different social castes people get put into and how it affects lives. According to the article “Caste is Not Past,” India also has a caste system that was, “divided into four main castes”. Politics and higher social powers are keeping this caste system alive even when it is trying to be broken down. Each caste is different and the lower caste is viewed as the “untouchables” and less working class. The author, Sankaran, wants the social statuses to be broken down and for everyone to be treated equally. Life right now is split into different classes such as upper, middle and lower and these classes can sometimes affect how your life is. The world needs to decide on a balance between being treated equally and split into social standings.
