↠´ Read º Brave New World Revisited by Aldous Huxley À Authors such as George Orwell, Margaret Atwood and Aldous Huxley scare me How can these authors who write dystopian fiction or social commentaries 30, 40, even 50 years ago be so accurate in what is going on in today s society This book is no exception Huxley is basically summarizing the first book in this collection Brave New World of which was published over 15 years before this one Some quotes that I ve extracted from this book which ring true for today are If over population should drive the underdeveloped countries into totalitarianism, and if these new dictatorships should ally themselves with Russia, then the military position of the United States would become less secure and the preparations for defense and retaliation would have to be intensif I fucking hate politics It s only useful in a very small amount of cases and in the rest of the time it s just a big pile of bullshit that is fed to people in order to keep them at their lower level I don t like governments and people that run countries and I really really don t like them in countries like mine or in countries like USA Somewhere in this world there must be a good president or a nice prime minister but in my country, that doesn t happen and in the USA it s all just a big scam Or, at least, that s my opinion Huxley decided, in the late fifties, to revisit his work and comment on it, in order for a better understanding He did a really nice job in this essay, let s call it, on commenting his book He explained some things about it and he made an apology for other things that he thought were not good enough, or should have been writte A leitura de Admir vel Mundo Novo foi fabulosa, mas arrisco a dizer que a leitura do Regresso ao Admir vel Mundo Novo foi ainda mais O ADM j um livro que nos faz pensar, se gostar amos de viver ou se nos adaptar amos vida naquele mundo controlado de uma forma que parece eficiente O RAMN faz nos pensar e reflectir ainda mais, sobre a inspira o, o que levou escrita da hist ria e situa o em ambas as pocas dos livros e o que se passa nos dias de hoje Esta dist ncia temporal intrigante, genial e assustadora ao mesmo tempo e faz me pensar em qual seria a opini o do AH se vivesse at aos dias de hoje Ser que estamos longe ou perto, como sociedade, de nos tornarmos algo parecido ao mundo do AMN Ou ser que temos a capacidade de mudar de estrat gia e evitar a desgra a Sem resposta obviamente S o futuro o dir , tal co

I picked up Huxley s classic dystopian utopia Brave New World as part of my ongoing pursuit of the classics His analytical non fiction follow up some thirty years after the novel was included in the back of the paperback version I was reading, and it immediately piqued my interest, in some ways even than the novel Although I ultimately disagree with much of Huxley s worldview, this collection of essays which analyzes the possibility and probability of the events in the novel is fascinating, both as a glimpse into his writing process and from the hindsight viewpoint of a still further sixty years into his future.
I am pleasantly surprised This book was a series of essays about certain social institutions that are slowly making the world closely align with the future Huxley predicts in Brave New World I am not sure why Huxley is trying so hard to prove that his predictions are likely to come true than George Orwell s 1984 Here are some of the main ideas that I thoroughly enjoyed That so many of the well fed young television watchers in the world s most powerful democracy should be so completely indifferent to the idea of self government, so blankly uninterested in freedom of thought and the right to dissent, is distressing, but not too surprising To be under no physical constraint and yet to be a psychological captive, compelled to think, feel and act as the representatives of the national State, or of some private interest with the nation, want him to think, feel and act Most men and women will No doubt about it, Brave New World is an important book When I first read it in high school it was a revelation and a lot accessible than 1984, which seemed kind of dark, dreary, and difficult at the time Twenty years later, I find myself rereading 1984 almost annually because it does what great literature can do so well get under one s skin in a way that is uncomfortable yet illuminating The world Orwell creates in 1984 is somehow consistent and believable, the characters real and sympathetic, their motives and fears palpable I picked up BNW for the first time since high school and found it unreadable after a certain point The characters are caricatures, the situations absurd, and the stabs at humor stilted and unfunny in that way only a towering intellect can be When I was younger I didn t understan If you can get past the first couple of chapters, where Huxley s remarks about Africans, Asiatics and the illiterate masses leaves me thinking he was a pretty big jerk, you ll proceed through some fascinating and fairly spot on commentary about totalitarianism and propaganda and democracy, to a final paragraph that bemoans kids these days and their lack of dedication to freedom So, it s overall a useful and interesting read, while being the product of its time.

But is Utopia truly the antithesis of Dystopia, and is it really an egalitarian society possible From Thomas More to Karl Marx and H G Wells and many others, this perfect society generally abides by some rigid, unimaginative and sometimes implausible rules, the main one being the austerity caused by the absence of personal property But, as it has already been seen in all Communist countries, this invests the State with an incredible power over the individual, denying the latter its importance whilst overstressing the importance of the community And because there is nobody left to sanction its act
