Brave New World discussion

As I wrote before, I have become rather fascinated by the Brave New World story.  I spent time on it yesterday, and a little more time on it this morning.

Every society must have a moral system, for man is a moral being.  Even the World State of the Brave New World has its own brand of morality.  What happens to those who deviate?  They are banished or executed.

John Savage, a major character in the story, was executed as was his mother, Linda.  Both were too deviant to be acceptable to the World State's norms.

If every society must have a moral system, then what is ours?
