In the novel Brave New World, Aldous Huxley was trying to convey the message that a perfect world could never exist despite any effort to control not only society, but all aspects of the lives of human beings. Utopian societies often result in totalitarianism because rulers are so consumed with making a perfect society that they are too controlling. The demolition of a dystopian society is quite inevitable because of human curiosity, which ultimately ends in the uncovering of the lies that a government attempts to communicate. In this novel, the government in London controls the lives of the people by making a perfect human race, and outcasts are exiled to another place outside of the State. First, totalitarianism is a branch of dictatorship that is ruled by one central power that attempts to control the lives of their victims. It can be dated back to the Maurya dynasty of India from 321-185 B.C. Throughout the history of totalitarian governments, the victims are often oppressed. A few common totalitarian rulers include Adolf Hitler from Nazi Germany, Benito Mussolini from fascist Italy, and Joseph Stalin from the Soviet Union. In the time period when these rulers were in power, it was illegal for anyone to stand up for their rights or express their negative beliefs on the government. In the novel, many pastimes have been prohibited by Mustapha Mond, their ruler. Books on religious teachings, dictionaries, novels, poems, and any books used for information or entertainment
