Comment: On Orwell's 1984 and Huxley's BNW...

On Orwell's 1984 and Huxley's BNW...

I read both long ago, and I have fuzzier memory of 1984 vs. BNW...

Now, just opinion but, besides the character plots themselves, and rather more on the general setting:

In all sincerity:

1984 ... is a forgiving parody of what we ALREADY have today.

It's just more subtle: they use the alienating power of ignorance and TV addiction in lieu and place of cell walls and chains...

BNW, on the other hand, is probably the dearest secret wish of our today's evil for their future of enslaving us.

Their plans have glitches, though. They didn't expect grasses of Liberty such as the WWW, that we should protect DEARLY, nor did they expect Righteous like Ron Paul to be so resilient.

Again, just my feeling.

"Cyril" pronounced "see real". I code stuff.
