As the chapter dissolves into a verbal montage, Mond lectures on history — and its suppression —  beginning appropriately with Henry Ford's adage: "History is bunk!" Mond recalls a world ravaged by  anthrax bombs and poison gases in the Nine Years' War, followed by the great Economic Collapse,  and finally the "choice between World Control and destruction." As Mond notes,  soma,  the ubiquitous  drug of choice in this brave new world, brought an end to worry, while "stability" proved to be the  keystone to social control — the "primal and ultimate need." The montage becomes more surrealistic as the chapter draws to a close, jumbling mottoes of the  World State with snatches of dialogue. For example, it fuses Ford and Freud (in psychological  matters), listens in on Lenina chatting with her friend Fanny, and introduces Bernard Marx, who will  emerge in subsequent chapters as a major character.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
