Brave New World by Aldous Huxley audiobook
Brave New World is a dystopian social science fiction novel by English author Aldous Huxley, written in 1931 and published in 1932. Largely set in a futuristic World State, whose citizens are environmentally engineered into an intelligence-based social hierarchy, the novel anticipates huge scientific advancements in reproductive technology, sleep-learning, psychological manipulation and classical conditioning that are combined to make a dystopian society which is challenged by only a single individual: the story’s protagonist.
Many are warning we are fast approaching George Orwell’s dystopian 1984 world, others warn of Aldous Huxley’s hideous Brave New World.
It’s looking like the authoritarian biosecurity state will be a mix of both.
“Brave New World is a study of the future as it may be unless we are extremely careful. It depicts a society in which man has replaced nature by science, morality by drugs, individuality by total conformity. it is a hideous prospect, yet we seem determined to follow this path of self-destruction but Brave New World need not be our future, the choice after all is always in our own hands”Aldous Huxley
