Aldous Huxley, author of Brave New World, here discusses influence, controlling the public mind and government.

“There will be, in the next generation or so, a pharmacological method of making people love their servitude, and producing dictatorship without tears, so to speak, producing a kind of painless concentration camp for entire societies, so that people will in fact have their liberties taken away from them, but will rather enjoy it, because they will be distracted from any desire to rebel by propaganda or brainwashing, or brainwashing enhanced by pharmacological methods. And this seems to be the final revolution.”

“Facts do not cease to exist, because they are ignored.”

“All gods are homemade, and it is we who pull their strings, and so, give them the power to pull ours.”

~Aldous Huxley

26 July 1894 – 22 November 1963

    It’s been 12 years since I’ve read BNW and 1984… Maybe I’ll revisit them soon…

      I can attest that I am surrounded by walking zombies, a direct consequence of the big pharmaceutical corporations stronghold over society…kids these days are being drugged instead of educated…politicians are like schoolkids feenin for candy…indeed this is far more serious than I had previously imagined…i always “felt” I would “see the end” in my day, but now more than ever I do not wanna get left behind…please tell me there is HOPE…doesn’t anyone have a moral obligation to society or should those of us that are awake abandon any our our altruistic intentions????

    I read BNW about a year ago. Very prophetic although it isn’t a great book, not as good as 1984 although the former is an easy read the latter can be very depressing. I think 1984 is more useful when discussing the police state whereas BNW is good for looking at social engineering in the future.
