The novels Brave New World and 1984 have many similarities as well as differences in their systems of government. The way the government views people as humans, life, and families are similar. Both governments do not want their people to be very smart. The differences in the governments are how people are born, how they maintain control, and how they keep people from rebellion. Brave New World is more scientific and uses more religion.1984 on the other hand is more political and uses force, power, fear, and anger to keep people in line. Both governments do not view people as important individuals. The governments do not care whether they live or die. The governments use the majority of the people for their own benefit. The governments don't do much; they get everyone to do it for them.

Both governments use brainwashing to keep people in line. 1984, rewrites history and makes everyone believe that the government is always right. They have "wars" against other countries so the people will support their government and hate the other countries. This gives the government more power because the people are angry towards the other countries, and feel the government will take care of them. In Brave New World, from the day that they are born, they are watched over. The people are never alone when they are babies.

Both forms of government do not want the people to be very smart. If the people had free thought they would rebel against the government because they would realize they were being taken advantage of. In 1984 they would use telescreens and war to put fear into the people so that no one would even think about wanting to learn. In a Brave New World, the government starts very young, from whispering in ears when they are sleeping to drugging them with soma.
