Ebook ´ Brave New World ì Aldous Huxley

Hological manipulation and classical conditioning that are combined to make a dystopian society which is challenged by only a single individual the story's protagoni This set the stage about what a dystopian story should be or not be “But I don't want comfort I want God I want poetry I want real danger I want freedom I want goodness I want sin”First published in 1932 this is timeless and is as relevant today as when it was first written Sixteen years before Orwell's 1984 but eleven years after We by Yevgeny Zamyatin this is a high water mark for the genre many of its themes could be told today Truth be said this could be published today and would be just as good it rises to the challenge and then towers above it“If one's different one's bound to be lonely”Everyday life makes me think of this book all the time Huxley does than describe a bleak and cynical post apocalyptic or dystopian world he looks a dystopian resident in the eye and puts before him a mirror to flesh out what is real and unreal Further Huxley has turned that same mirror on the reader and we see in his far future fantasy a reality that could be today Huxley reveals that the seeds of Mustafa Mond and his ilk have fertile ground in our culture and in our souls“No social stability without individual stability”Finally Huxely provides a glimpse behind the curtain we see the false wizard in his machinations The world that has been crafted for the denizens of Huxley's nightmare landscape is explained fully and matter of factly by Mond Huxley's sermon is delivered as stoically and deterministically as Jonathon Edwards Sinners in the Hands of an Angry GodYou all remember I suppose that beautiful and inspired saying of Our Ford's History is bunkA must read 2020 Re readReading this brilliant work after a few years only just reminded me of not only what an exceptional book it is but of also how important it is in literature“In 1999 the Modern Library ranked Brave New World as #5 on its list of the 100 best English language novels of the 20th century In 2003 Robert McCrum writing for The Observer included Brave New World chronologically at #53 in the top 100 greatest novels of all time and the novel was listed at #87 on The Big Read survey by the BBC” WikipediaHuxley was greatly affected and influenced by economic events in the England of the 1920s and of the need for stability but at what cost? A trip to America and an exploration of Henry Ford’s autobiography My Life and Work further led him towards the centralized and industrialized world that he created in BNWHuxley perhaps so than Orwell has crafted a domain wherein the individual has succumbed to the will of the state But Huxley’s vision is subtle and therefore insidious – the citizens of Huxley’s dystopia are brainwashed and seem genuinely happy The dehumanizing automation of births and families as well as the somnambulist hypnotic effects of Soma further create a scenario where out traditional attitudes of right and wring have been displacedMost of all in this reading is the characterization of John and of his juxtaposition with him as a product of the savage reservation and of his alienation in the London of the brave new world In John Huxley has created a shadow of Miranda from The Tempest and the civilization he finds is one that he ultimately rejects in favor of the most extreme form of individual choiceTimeless and important

Brave New WorldBrave New World is a dystopian novel by English author Aldous Huxley written in 1931 and published in 1932 Largely set in a futuristic World State inhabited by genet Warning The following review contains humor If you read it and actually think that I'm being critical of Huxley try reading it again Here's a hint Look for the irony of the italicized parts when compared to the previous statements If you post a comment that asserts that I'm wrong stupid crazy for this andor try to lecture me on all the points you think I missed then I'm going to assume that you read it literally missed the joke didn't read the other comments where I've already answered this about a dozen times and I will delete your post I have to apologize for this review The concept of this book was so outlandish that I think it made my mind wander and you may find some odd random thoughts scattered in it Anyhow this book was so silly and unrealistic Like any of this could happen In the far future the babies are genetically engineered and designed for certain stations in life with a large workforce bred to be happy with menial jobs that don’t stress them physically or mentally I really should look into getting that data entry position I saw in the job postings It’d be a lot less stressful than what I‘m doing now In addition to all the genetic modifications the children are raised by the state and words like ’father’ and ’mother’ are considered obscenities Subliminal messaging through infancy and childhood also condition people to repeat idiotic platitudes as if they are genuine wisdom I’ve been in a bad mood today I need to turn that frown upside down And since the world economy depends on constant consumption by the highest classes they’re encouraged to be wasteful The collars on a couple of my shirts are a little frayed I should go buy some new ones and throw the old ones out and to engage in activities that demand spending and resource use Should I get a new set of golf clubs? I lost my old ones when we moved but I hadn’t played in a long time But would I play if I got new clubs? There‘s that really nice looking course right down the street I don‘t know how they keep the grass that green in this heat The population even gets to zip around in their own private helicopters rather than cars Man when are they going to come out with jet packs for everyone It’s 2011 and I’m still driving around in a car like a chump I want my jet packCasual sex is actively encouraged Wow These condom commercials on TV have gotten really racy The population is also programmed to be constantly partaking of some form of entertainment and to never just sit uietly and think I’m bored Writing is boring or to be alone Let’s check Facebook and see what all my friends are doingOne of the sillier ideas is that the foundation of this society is Henry Ford’s assembly lines and that Ford has become the most revered figure in history Like a businessman could ever become that popular Is Steve Jobs making any announcements this week? I get itchy when there‘s no new Apple products While everyone seeks to be constantly entertained all of the entertainment panders to the lowest common denominator Hey Jersey Shore is on and the emphasis is on presenting it with gimmicks to engage the audience like ’the feelies’ movies that the audience can also smell and feel the sensation from I wonder if they’ll re release Avatar at the movies so I can see it in 3D again like James Cameron intended? At one point a character complains about the feelies “But they’re told by an idiotworks of art out of practically nothing but pure sensation” I should go see that new Michael Bay Transformers moviePerhaps the most far fetched idea in this is that the population has been trained to sedate themselves with a drug called soma that relives any potential anxieties and keeps people from thinking about anything upsetting I want a beerI guess this Huxley guy might have gotten lucky and predicted a few things but he was way off base about where society was going
