In a grim city and a terrifying country, where Big Brother is always Watching You and the Thought Police can practically read your mind, Winston is a man in grave danger for the simple reason that his memory still functions. He was different from other people of the organization. He was completely against the prospective of big brother. Though he suppress his emotions when he used to attend the meetings of the organization.
The novel Brave New World represents the similar prospective of the totilarism government. "Community, Identity, Stability" is the motto of Aldous Huxley's utopian World State. Everyone consumes daily grams of soma, to fight depression, babies are born in laboratories, and the most popular form of entertainment is a "Feelie," a movie that stimulates the senses of sight, hearing, and touch. Though there is no violence and everyone is provided for, Bernard Marx feels something is missing and sometimes feels that he does not belong to this society. Bernard was thinking against the society`s prospective. Bernard used to think differently from D.H.C and Mustapha Mond. He was not contented with their decisions. In this society as mention above, consumption of soma is common, but Bernard was against it and never used to take it until he is forced by the people. From the above explanation of the life of the protagonist, the observed result is that they are facing the similar political condition, which is totilarism.

Drawn into a forbidden love affair, Winston finds the courage to join a secret revolutionary organization called The Brotherhood, dedicated to the destruction of the Party. Together with his beloved Julia, he hazards his life in a deadly match against the powers that be.
The main character of the novel Brave New World is facing internal conflict that he should be social or not. Bernard was isolated by society and senses his relationship with young women has the potential to be much more than the confines of their existence allow.
