I think Huxley and Orwell both have a point, different means to the same end, and we see both systems active in our world. Orwell's is more in line with dictatorial regimes while Huxley seems to describe the western world.I do think that freedom of information leads us closer to freedom, period. Many people take this freedom for granted though, it's a shame.
And there's a certain degree of overlap between the two as well. We might not have a miniluv who inflicts physical pain on us ons such a large scale but you don't have to look far for incessant fear-mongering in our media or from our politicians either.
That was awesome. Thanks for sharing it. I read Postman's work and it was brilliant. His point is hammered home even more with the illustrations. Very nicely done.

thanks for sharing that!
bless i appreciate it bruhthe funny thing is that I see this same shit happening in my own community. Hella Church's, Hella Liquor Stores, Hella Bums pushing carts of can's, hella Black folks losing their lives at a young age and yet right down the street I see a "liberal" community that don't give a damn about it.Cheeba, Orwell, and Pink Floyd used to go hard back in the day.
awesome, babylon ain't paradise.
No matter what, we will be the cause to our own ultimate downfall. I'm going to go to bed and cry now. Anyone who hasn't done it yet owe it to themselves to read at least 1984 and Brave New World.
