Once the John the Savage came into Bernard's life, Bernard realized that his society would love to see the Savage, especially after they realize that the Savage is the Director's illegitimate son. The theme of selfishness in the novel can also be seen through the protagonists when they used each other to become accepted in the New World society. They didn't think about the effects they would cause on these women. Both John and Bernard treated Lenina horribly throughout the novel. The motives that they possessed in their lived showed how selfish they were acting. People thought she looked hideous and they often made fun of her. Even though Lenina was only interested in a good time with the two men she was effected immensely by their exploits. Also, when Bernard took Lenina over the English Channel in his helicopter, he tried to make Lenina think differently about things and this confused her immensely. Once she was taken out of this society and put into the society of the New World she was socially unaccepted. He felt that there were too many restrictions in this new society. By John and Bernard wanting the society of the New World to be the way they wanted, it shows how these two protagonists were being selfish. larly, John felt that the New World was to conformed and orderly. However, this theme can easily be linked to both of the main protagonists, and as the novel continues, the antagonists.
