Huxley uses satire in many ways throughout the novel to make his point. In the section addressing Bernard's Solidarity Service, they are almost too many to count. Start with the name: it is a solidarity service, joining with people, not a worship service, joining with God. The clock rings "Ford," counting off their assembly line prophet. They sing hymns, but to Ford, not God, and they evoke the "Flivver," a kind of car. All in all, the satire comes from substituting the human for the divine, the commercial and technological for the sublime.
