Huxley portrays how brutishly selfish mankind is, and it is shameful. As Lewis would later say, we are far too easily pleased. While Orwell shows in 1984 how capably the State can control it's subjects through power, punishment, and fear, Huxley demonstrates how the State can enslave us by our own passions.
