“I am I, and I wish I wasn’t”. Bernard Marx and John Savage are both dissatisfied with the society of the New World. To what extent do you agree?

I would strongly agree. Bernard is short and physically inadequate for the status of Alpha-Plus, and therefore has an inferiority complex. He dislikes the superficiality of relationships and ideas of society. John falls in love with Lenina and imagines his love for her as that of Romeo and Juliet. He soon has trouble conforming to the ideals of the Utopian world and strikes out in an effort to assert his individuality. John finally runs away from the society but cannot avoid a mob of sightseers. In the end, he commits suicide.
