The article “India’s Caste System” and the novel “Brave New World” both delve into the idea of predetermined social status is dystopian societies. In “Brave New World”, each civilian is “conditioned” to fit their social class. The society is made up of five classes: alphas, betas, gammas, deltas, and epsilons. Each caste has a color, certain likes/dislikes, and job quotas. For example, gammas “all wear green” and “[are] conditioned to like flowers” so they feel connected to nature. Aldous Huxley is drawing attention to the lack of freedom among the people. Everything is pre-chosen and limits the individuality and uniqueness. He shows that when people are not allows the freedom to choose what they want, everyone is the same. It is not as ideal of a society as it appears to be. In India, each person is “born into their caste”. It can affect opinions on one another if an individual is ranked socially higher and limit jobs or colleges for those in castes looked down on. One is essentially stuck in the class they’re born in and is “definitely not changeable” in the same way the society in “Brave New World” runs. The idea of a population being assigned into classes of a social hierarchy can restrict one’s potential as far as education or career. Individualism is nonexistent and as an affect, citizens are outraged. They feel the extremes being either a lack of motivation or anger to the point of being motivated enough to defy the rules of society. Caste systems can do the opposite of what they intend to, which is to keep everyone in their respected social class.
