Here, each person is genetically engineered to be a certain caste of an ideal member: Alpha is beautiful, brilliant leadership. Epsilon are naive manual workers. The rest fall somewhere in between. Each performs a vital function rank, has met his material needs and conditioned their lot in life above all others prefer. Family and monogamy are illegal. Pregnancy is obsolete. And to control the X-factor of brain chemistry, there is soma, a drug that change their mood forces (depending on dosage) is like Xanax or ecstasy.
