Books: “Brave New World”

Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World, written in 1932, is one of the most significant dystopian novels of the 20th centuries.  Along with Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451, George Orwell’s 1984 and Animal Farm, Huxley’s work warned against the rapid spread of government tyranny.

Huxley prophetically pictures a world dominated by social engineering, people “conditioned” to submit not think.  Obsession with entertainment and sex removes all critical thought and prescription drugs remove all remnants of resistance.

This is a required read for those concerned with the modern assault on individual liberty and government intrusion.
