    Brave New WorldBrave New World Revisited) [Pdf Read] ☆ Aldous Huxley What I like most about Brave New World is that it centers on the disease of human passivity as it's controlled by the higher ups in society With 1984 there is the possibility for consciousness of the inherent evil of the subversive

The nature of psychological compulsion is such that those who act under constraint remain under the impression that they are acting on their own initiative The victim of mind manipulation does not know that he is a victim To him the walls of his prison are invisible and he believes himself to be free That he is not free is apparent only to other people His servitude is strictly objective While its illustrious counterpart Orwell s 1984 has entered our cultural lexicon in significant ways who doesn t know about Doublethink Newspeak Memory Hole or The Ministry of Truth Huxley s concocted fable of a scientifically authored future for mankind remains the most clinically rationally approached and thus prescient one In a far off future this vision penned down in 1931 could very well prove to be correct making the noble attempt of his former student Orwell seem almost crude and laughable in comparison Indeed in 2017 a Brave New World scenario is near than we d like to imagine All the technical tools even if still primitive are available all that need be added are the right circumstances and a powerful unopposed group strong willed enough to bring it into realityYet for all its prophetic potency at the same time this is exactly where the issue lies with Brave New World as a work of art it doesn t cleave to you It s a novel almost solely composed of ideas And so judged purely as a novel it shows itself to be rather threadbare in its construction offering up little than a dry summation of what are admittedly intriguing concepts but ultimately showing an acute deficiency in its ability to evoke any deep emotion This primarily is the fault of its underdeveloped two dimensional characters and a lacklustre almost lazy plot that doesn t necessarily invite further contemplation by the reader on the intricacies of what by all rights should be a richly textured world or on its history for that matter It s mind bogglingly restricted superficial and how ironic sterile One wouldn t be wrong in asserting this might have been Huxley s exact intention so as to make the future all the devoid of humanity and thus frightening to us but that shouldn t serve as an excuse for tedium All good fiction does need to have these emotional anchors in place Here sadly it falls short in that regard A historically significant work to be sure but aesthetically lacking Brave New World Revisited 1958 however Huxley s later commentary on the viability of the future he envisioned I found to be much preferable Dispensing with characterization or concern for plot Huxley can engage at heart s content in some intellectual freestyling ruminating extrapolating pursuing various strands of thought etc His comparision of the different techniues of mind manipulation both of individuals and of crowds employed by the authoritarian regimes of Nazi Germany and Soviet Russia were particularly insightful I could have tolerated it being lengthy than it is actually In essence it is both a sobering account of how malleable and indeed easily influenced human beings in the main really are when put in the right conditions and a manual on how to counteract the ambitions of those in possession of the vulgar will to power A vigilant defense of freedom in all its forms education and a deep awareness of our inherent corruptability and faults Huxley argues are still our best bulwarks against further encroachment by budding tyrantsIn this case prophesy for all intents and purposes thankfully remains a mug s game

Prophetic Well Aldous Huxley 1894 1963 tried to predict what would happen probably during our time now up to the 26th century or 632 AF Anno Ford with Year 0 being 1908 when Model T was introduced He wrote this novel Brave New World in 1931 and first published in 1932 Fifteen years after in 1949 George Orwell did a similar thing when he published his social science fiction 1984 Both Huxley and Orwell were like Nostradamus but without the dreams or visions Huxley came from the famous Huxley family with outstanding scientific medical artistic and literary talent Orwell on the other hand was said to possess a keen intelligence and wit a profound awareness of social injustice an intense revolutionary opposition to totalitarianism a passion for clarity in language and a belief in democratic socialismIMO let s see what happened so far after almost 80 years At least with some semblance Huxley s prophesy Babies are mass produced in laboratories Take note that Watson and Crick only discovered the DNA helix structure in 1953 So this was a good guess by Huxley Reality Dolly the cloned sheep 1996 2003 Huxley s prophesy Soma readily available all around upper that make you feel better Reality Ecstasy etc although they are not readily available and expensive Huxley s prophesy Overpopulation Reality Correct But that should be easy Huxley s prophesy Free sex Reality Marry your wife get sex free Huxley s prophesy No religion no God no concept of the family no mama no papa Reality think that this has not changed so muchSeriously this is a well written dystopian novel and is now top of my list of favorite sci fi novels relegating 1984 to second place Reason this came before that Orwell s book and this is written in a funny way that I think even children can appreciate John the Savage for example seems like Tarzan the first time he sees the World State aka The Brave New World and also his elouence and mastery of Shakespeare s verses is just so funny Why Shakespeare Because Huxley and The Bard were both British Well I should have added that In a way Huxley also indirectly prophesized that children of the 21st century would still study Shakespeare in school Huxley and Shakespeare are both genius anyway So let their books live forever Thanks to my reading buddies Bea Angus and Tintin for reading this book with me Whoever thought of suggesting this book for us to read should have some potential to be a future genius too Excellent choice for a book
