Even the use of the word "propaganda" seems quaint. People today talk about nothing substantive. Nothing deep, no analysis of our country, or any kind of high level ideas. People today would find this show incredibly boring. Yet Huxley wrote some very prescient things (or were they) about eugenics and bioengineering that seem timely now. Is now the brave new world he wrote about? We're these things planned and blueprinted long ago? [/quote] All very true. Notice the nature of the men back then as well. Full of dignity, character, energetic, anchored in the conversation, oozing masculinity. [/quote] We're there and way beyond Huxley's wildest dreams. Soma. "All of the benefits of Christianity and alcohol without their defects." The [i]religion[/i] of science and medicine comes to mind. Pharmaceuticals.... "Fluoride added for strong, healthy teeth." I saw this advertisement on jugs of water made for babies while combing the grocery isles for un-fluoridated water. :bump: [/quote] I went to buy salt at the supermarket the other day here in Colombia and I couldn't find any without fluoride added. Now they're putting the shit IN THE FUCKING SALT. At least the last time I was in Uruguay they were selling fluoridated and non-fluoridated salt, so you could choose whether to condition your brain for further brainwashing or not. I dare say that if Huxley and Orwell were alive today, they would be stunned by the efficacy of those in control on this planet. Even in their wildest, Fabian-society fueled nightmares, they could scarcely have imagined what this gulag of a planet has become. [/quote]
Aldous Huxley, social critic and author of Brave New World, talks to Wallace about threats to freedom in the United States, overpopulation, bureaucracy, propaganda, drugs, advertising, and television.
