11) How does Bernard take advantage of John?

When he hears John and Linda’s story, Bernard realizes “who the ‘father’ of this young savage must be.” Bernard invites John and Linda back to London in order to get back at Bernard’s enemy—the D.H.C. Back in London, Bernard saves his own position by revealing the secret of John’s parentage and disgracing the D.H.C. After that, Bernard becomes a minor celebrity as John’s “accredited guardian.” The tactic backfires after John revolts against the World State, dragging Bernard down with him.
