The article “A culture of oppression: The Hindu caste system” and the book “Brave new world” reveal the sometimes harsh realities of being subjected into a caste system no matter how high or low a person is. For some like Bernard who is in a higher caste (Alpha male) one would think he would have it made. Being higher in the caste system doesn't always mean more happiness. Bernard’s physique “was hardly better than that of an average Gamma” and “the mockery always made him feel like an outsider”. Huxley is showing that even when one is at the top, it doesn't always necessarily mean that everything is perfect and how it should be. According to the caste system Bernard should be well respected but instead “he found himself looking on the level, instead of downward into a Delta’s face”. Simply because of his height he is seen as lower or less than others. Which is something that Bernard has absolutely no control of. Huxley is revealing that the caste system has nothing to do with something that one has ever done, but with what one was born into. Just as the article “A culture of oppression: The Hindu caste system” says “When your oppression is determined before your birth, your vulnerability will always hold you captive”. Meaning that one’s life has already practically been decided without them even being born. The level of the caste completely controls lives in most aspects. In the article it is revealed that “The strict hold the caste system has on the people limits their opportunities and perpetuates their vulnerabilities”. There are essentially limits on lives based on what they were born into. The potential of people are being restricted and the quality of lives are being purposely made worse. As a society we can’t just take a large amount of people and expect them to fit a certain mold. It’s important that we don’t suppress people from reaching their full potential.
