Brave New World 3: What is "culture"?
People live in an environment that dictates what behaviour and language is acceptable. There are norms that dictate our lives, for the most part. Currently, we understand these norms by living in a culture and absorbing what's understood to be correct behaviour. In Brave New World, much of the culture is communicated by conditioning. We are supposed to feel repelled by this deliberate fixing of culture. But is it worse than what parents and teachers do to children, or what advertisers and journalists do to adults? Are outlets such as Fox News and Tribune similar vehicles for the imposition of culture?
