The title of this set pretty much says it all.
We had forgotten that alongside Orwell’s dark vision, there was another – equally chilling : Aldous Huxley’s BRAVE NEW WORLD. Orwell and Huxley did not prophesy the same thing. Orwell warns that we will be overcome by an externally imposed oppression. But in Huxley’s vision, no Big Brother is required to deprive people of their autonomy, maturity and history. As he saw it, people will come to love their oppression, to adore the technologies that undo their capacities to think.Neil Postman, Amusing Ourselves to Death
