Aldous Huxley (1962 Lecture): The Ultimate Revolution - Getting People To Love Their Servitude
"...we are in process of developing a whole series of techniques which will enable the controlling oligarchy, who have always existed, and presumably will always exist, to get people to love their servitude...a method of control by which a people can be made to enjoy a state of affairs by which any decent standard they ought not to enjoy"

In 1962 Professor and Author Aldous Huxley (Brave New World) did a lecture at U.C. Berkeley entitled "The Ultimate Revolution". I figured I would re-share this lecture as I feel what is being said is may be more relevant today, then it has ever has been.

Aldous Huxley: The Ultimate Revolution (March 20, 1962)
Moderator: Aldous Huxley, a renowned Essayist and Novelist who during the spring semester is residing at the university in his capacity of a Ford research professor. Mr Huxley has recently returned from a conference at the Institute for the study of Democratic Institutions in Santa Barbara where the discussion focused on the development of new techniques by which to control and direct human behavior. Traditionally it has been possible to suppress individual freedom through the application of physical coercion through the appeal of ideologies through the manipulation of man’s physical and social environment and more recently through the techniques, the cruder techniques of psychological conditioning. The Ultimate Revolution, about which Mr. Huxley will speak today, concerns itself with the development of new behavioral controls, which operate directly on the psycho-physiological organisms of man. That is the capacity to replace external constraint by internal compulsions. As those of us who are familiar with Mr. Huxley’s works will know, this is a subject of which he has been concerned for quite a period of time. Mr. Huxley will make a presentation of approximately half an hour followed by some brief discussions and questions by the two panelists sitting to my left, Mrs. Lillian {garbled} and Mr. John Post. Now Mr. Huxley

Huxley: First of all, the, I’d like to say, that the conference at Santa Barbara was not directly concerned with the control of the mind. That was a conference, there have been two of them now, at the University of California Medical center in San Francisco, one this year which I didn’t attend, and one two years ago where there was a considerable discussion on this subject. At Santa Barbara we were talking about technology in general and the effects it’s likely to have on society and the problems related to technological transplanting of technology into underdeveloped countries.

Well now in regard to this problem of the ultimate revolution, this has been very well summed up by the moderator. In the past we can say that all revolutions have essentially aimed at changing the environment in order to change the individual. I mean there’s been the political revolution, the economic revolution, in the time of the reformation, the religious revolution. All these aimed, not directly at the human being, but at his surroundings. So that by modifying the surroundings you did achieve, at one remove an effect on the human being.

Today we are faced, I think, with the approach of what may be called the ultimate revolution, the final revolution, where man can act directly on the mind-body of his fellows. Well needless to say some kind of direct action on human mind-bodies has been going on since the beginning of time. But this has generally been of a violent nature. The Techniques of terrorism have been known from time immemorial and people have employed them with more or less ingenuity sometimes with the utmost cruelty, sometimes with a good deal of skill acquired by a process of trial and error finding out what the best ways of using torture, imprisonment, constraints of various kinds.

But, as, I think it was Metternicht said many years ago, you can do everything with bayonets except sit on them. If you are going to control any population for any length of time, you must have some measure of consent, it’s exceedingly difficult to see how pure terrorism can function indefinitely. It can function for a fairly long time, but I think sooner or later you have to bring in an element of persuasion an element of getting people to consent to what is happening to them.

It seems to me that the nature of the ultimate revolution with which we are now faced is precisely this: That we are in process of developing a whole series of techniques which will enable the controlling oligarchy who have always existed and presumably will always exist to get people to love their servitude. This is the, it seems to me, the ultimate in malevolent revolutions shall we say, and this is a problem which has interested me many years and about which I wrote thirty years ago, a fable, Brave New World, which is an account of society making use of all the devices available and some of the devices which I imagined to be possible making use of them in order to, first of all, to standardize the population, to iron out inconvenient human differences, to create, to say, mass produced models of human beings arranged in some sort of scientific caste system. Since then, I have continued to be extremely interested in this problem and I have noticed with increasing dismay a number of the predictions which were purely fantastic when I made them thirty years ago have come true or seem in process of coming true.

A number of techniques about which I talked seem to be here already. And there seems to be a general movement in the direction of this kind of ultimate revolution, a method of control by which a people can be made to enjoy a state of affairs by which any decent standard they ought not to enjoy. This, the enjoyment of servitude. Well this process is, as I say, has gone on for over the years, and I have become more and more interested in what is happening.

And here I would like briefly to compare the parable of Brave New World with another parable which was put forth more recently in George Orwell’s book, Nineteen Eighty- Four. Orwell wrote his book between, I think between 45 and 48 at the time when the Stalinist terror regime was still in Full swing and just after the collapse of the Hitlerian terror regime. And his book which I admire greatly, it’s a book of very great talent and extraordinary ingenuity, shows, so to say, a projection into the future of the immediate past, of what for him was the immediate past, and the immediate present, it was a projection into the future of a society where control was exercised wholly by terrorism and violent attacks upon the mind-body of individuals.

Whereas my own book which was written in 1932 when there was only a mild dictatorship in the form of Mussolini in existence, was not overshadowed by the idea of terrorism, and I was therefore free in a way in which Orwell was not free, to think about these other methods of control, these non-violent methods and my, I’m inclined to think that the scientific dictatorships of the future, and I think there are going to be scientific dictatorships in many parts of the world, will be probably a good deal nearer to the brave new world pattern than to the 1984 pattern, they will a good deal nearer not because of any humanitarian qualms of the scientific dictators but simply because the BNW pattern is probably a good deal more efficient than the other.

That if you can get people to consent to the state of affairs in which they’re living. The state of servitude the state of being, having their differences ironed out, and being made amenable to mass production methods on the social level, if you can do this, then you have, you are likely, to have a much more stable and lasting society. Much more easily controllable society than you would if you were relying wholly on clubs and firing squads and concentration camps. So that my own feeling is that the 1984 picture was tinged of course by the immediate past and present in which Orwell was living, but the past and present of those years does not reflect, I feel, the likely trend of what is going to happen, needless to say we shall never get rid of terrorism, it will always find its way to the surface.

But I think that insofar as dictators become more and more scientific, more and more concerned with the technically perfect, perfectly running society, they will be more and more interested in the kind of techniques which I imagined and described from existing realities in BNW. So that, it seems to me then, that this ultimate revolution is not really very far away, that we, already a number of techniques for bringing about this kind of control are here, and it remains to be seen when and where and by whom they will first be applied in any large scale.

And first let me talk about the, a little bit about the, improvement in the techniques of terrorism. I think there have been improvements. Pavlov after all made some extremely profound observations both on animals and on human beings. And he found among other things that conditioning techniques applied to animals or humans in a state either of psychological or physical stress sank in so to say, very deeply into the mind-body of the creature, and were extremely difficult to get rid of. That they seemed to be embedded more deeply than other forms of conditioning.

Mike Wallace: The question of course that keeps coming back to my mind is this, obviously politics in itself is not evil, television in itself is not evil, atomic energy is not evil, yet you seem to fear that it will be used in an evil way. Why is it that the right people will not in your estimation use them. Why is it the wrong people will use these various devices and for the wrong motives.

Huxley: Well I think one of the reasons is that these are all instruments for obtaining power and obviously the passion for power is one of the more moving passions that exist in man and after all, all democracies are based on the proposition that power is very dangerous, and it's extremely important not to let any one man or any one small group have to much power for to long a time, as what are the British & American constitutions except devices for limiting power, and all these new devices are extremely efficient instruments for the imposition of power by small groups to the larger masses.

Aldous Huxley also took LSD more than once with Bill Wilson, founder of Alcoholics Anonymous (Bill Wilson was more than 20 years "sober" when he decided to ingest hallucinogenic drug LSD to discover a cure for alcoholism. Huxley also loved the substance.)

I do not want to derail this thread: But I often wonder, if psychadelic substances are the key to peace, understanding, and realizing human potential.

Re: Aldous Huxley (1962 Lecture): The Ultimate Revolution - Getting People To Love Their Servitude
In 1962 Professor and Author Aldous Huxley (Brave New World) did a lecture at U.C. Berkeley entitled "The Ultimate Revolution". In light of the recent Sandy Hook event (attacks on the 2nd amendment) and the subsequent MSM aftermath (coming attacks on the 1st amendment via the PLANNED scapegoat of mental health/illness due to what they term as "conspiracy theories"), I figured I would re-share this lecture as I feel what is being said is may be more relevant today, then it has ever has been.

First of all allow be to explain insanity. Insanity as all things, comes in degrees, but here is the simple definition of insanity “Knowing right from wrong”; push it up a notch: in all its many degrees and variations.

You all are insane.

Look at this word, and then see if you can see what I see:

Masochism

Now tell me, please, what is so “new” about that.

In other words the Titile of this thread shouldhavebeen:

“Masochism and the Dominatrix”

See that?

Now youall are backto sane again, but the problem is that it is only fleeting, because you are only sane when iam here. Bubye

Those substances are quite illegal in every way, shape, and form. They are the quickest way to a felony and a very long stay in a maximum security prison.

There is nothing more on this matter that should be discussed. Leave it be.

There is no way of revealing truth without pain for both of us, because itis quite true that "truth hurts", and there doesnot seems to be any anesthesia for it.

First of all allow be to explain insanity. Insanity as all things, comes in degrees, but here is the simple definition of insanity “Knowing right from wrong”; push it up a notch: in all its many degrees and variations.

You all are insane.
Look at this word, and then see if you can see what I see:

Masochism
Now tell me, please, what is so “new” about that.
In other words the Titile of this thread shouldhavebeen:
“Masochism and the Dominatrix”
See that?

Now youall are backto sane again, but the problem is that it is only fleeting, because you are only sane when iam here. Bubye

mas·och·ism [mássə kìzzəm]

1. sexual pleasure through humiliation: sexual gratification achieved through humiliation and physical and verbal abuse
2. psychological disorder: the psychological disorder in which somebody needs to be emotionally or physically abused in order to be sexually satisfied
3. search for abusive sexual partners: the active seeking out of sexual partners who will dominate, humiliate, and physically and verbally abuse
4. enjoyment of hardship: the tendency to invite and enjoy misery of any kind, especially in order to be pitied by others or admired for forbearance

I guess this guy works for CNN or something because he sure is following the line that is currently being made popular by the (controlled) MSM, that questioning anything = mental illness (and therefor a danger to others).

You obviously didn't listen to the videos, but thanks for proving my original statement with your ignorance.
In light of the recent Sandy Hook event (attacks on the 2nd amendment) and the subsequent MSM aftermath (coming attacks on the 1st amendment via the PLANNED scapegoat of mental health/illness due to what they term as "conspiracy theories")...

What a disgusting piece of garbage this guy was. It is people like this that has really screwed the world up.

Just look on his wikipedia page:
[link to en.wikipedia.org]

He was a satanist which explains why he was allowed to teach and run in those elitist circles.

Aldous Huxley was a humanist, pacifist, and satirist, and he was latterly interested in spiritual subjects such as parapsychology and philosophical mysticism. Aldous was the grandson of Thomas Henry Huxley, the zoologist, agnostic and controversialist ("Darwin's Bulldog").

He felt that he was superior and other human beings on this earth needed to "serve" his sorry ass. No matter is the herd of sheeple had to be terrorized, forced with a gun to their head or conned.

And what a coward this satanist was. He hob knobs around the elite and when WW1 comes along he conveniently goes blind for those years and then miraculously can see again after the war. Nice to know people in high places that can write you a note so you do not have to put your ass in peril. I guess as a satanist then you like to see others in pain and misery but not yourself. And look where he spent his time during WW1, working as a laborer on the farm and manor of some elitist. How can you be a laborer when you are blind?

And to further prove what a disgusting coward he was look what happened after WW11. He refused to say he would take up arms to defend the U.S. but yet he wanted to become a citizen of the U.S.?


he suffered an illness (keratitis punctata) which "left [him] practically blind for two to three years".[4] Aldous' near-blindness disqualified him from service in the First World War.

During the First World War, Huxley spent much of his time at Garsington Manor, home of Lady Ottoline Morrell, working as a farm laborer.

After the Second World War, Huxley applied for United States citizenship. His application was continuously deferred on the grounds that he would not say he would take up arms to defend the U.S.

Mr Huxley has recently returned from a conference at the Institute for the study of Democratic Institutions in Santa Barbara where the discussion focused on the development of new techniques by which to control and direct human behavior.


Oh thats nice.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 32381683


Aldous Huxley also took LSD more than once with Bill Wilson, founder of Alcoholics Anonymous (Bill Wilson was more than 20 years "sober" when he decided to ingest hallucinogenic drug LSD to discover a cure for alcoholism. Huxley also loved the substance.)

I do not want to derail this thread: But I often wonder, if psychedelic substances are the key to peace, understanding, and realizing human potential.

TPTW are extremely afraid of people's consciousness expanding and seeing through the matrix. This is also a reason as to why they made having many native plants on your property illegal in Australia. Because so many plants have trace elements of DMT. This is what TPTW fear most! Our awareness growing - which is why they put rat poison in our drinking water and try to get the population on mind numbing drugs and declare a large percentage of the population as mentally ill. They even have 'mental health screening' for children to start and compound the numbing and dumbing down process.

Next book on the list to read. This post to me seems as an introduction to the book. I may understand better, what he is saying ater reading, "A Brave New World."
 Quoting: DA 32039557


Yup. That one is a must read.

Considering he wrote it in 1932, and how much he has hit the nail on the head, if we compare the book to what we see now, it is indeed extremely scary.

Aldous Huxley: The Ultimate Revolution (March 20, 1962)


It seems to me that the nature of the ultimate revolution with which we are now faced is precisely this: That we are in process of developing a whole series of techniques which will enable the controlling oligarchy who have always existed and presumably will always exist to get people to love their servitude. This is the, it seems to me, the ultimate in malevolent revolutions shall we say, and this is a problem which has interested me many years and about which I wrote thirty years ago, a fable, Brave New World, which is an account of society making use of all the devices available and some of the devices which I imagined to be possible making use of them in order to, first of all, to standardize the population, to iron out inconvenient human differences, to create, to say, mass produced models of human beings arranged in some sort of scientific caste system. Since then, I have continued to be extremely interested in this problem and I have noticed with increasing dismay a number of the predictions which were purely fantastic when I made them thirty years ago have come true or seem in process of coming true.

A number of techniques about which I talked seem to be here already. And there seems to be a general movement in the direction of this kind of ultimate revolution, a method of control by which a people can be made to enjoy a state of affairs by which any decent standard they ought not to enjoy. This, the enjoyment of servitude. Well this process is, as I say, has gone on for over the years, and I have become more and more interested in what is happening.
