Huxley actually was an insider - he and his brother. I haven't researched him enough to know why he exposed the plan to the general populace, I can only assume he was genuinely against it. I've got the follow up book to Brave New World but haven't read it yet. I think Orwell was just very observant. Again, I need to research the author to be sure. In both cases the authors did a great job of putting out warnings for the rest of us.

I used to say the U.K. was getting 1984 while the U.S. was getting Brave New World. I've decided it a blend for both.

As soon as a system exist people look to exploit it. Why create the tools of our own enslavement? I am a voluntarist. I look to enslave no one and I don't want a master. I believe in equality, as soon as systems exist those who run them become masters.

At the source of every error which is blamed on the computer you will find at least two human errors, including the error of blaming it on the computer.
