First published in 1931, Huxley’s dystopian novel predicted a seemingly fantastic future: a world of globalization, commercialism, genetic engineering, mass use of anti-depressants, commercial space travel, virtual reality entertainment, hero-worship of technologists, nearly complete disinterest in history and literature, and deep distraction. It was a world very different from his own, but with many similarities to ours. And it was a warning: that the distractions, pleasures, and technological advances we love could potentially infringe our freedom and distort our humanity.
We think you’ll find this classic and compelling work well worth pondering, and an impetus to reflect on the means of resisting the consumerism, sensationalism, and distraction that characterize our own time.
