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.

I signed no contract and will not be held to one.

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.

Marvelous! The super-user's going to boot me! What a finely tuned response to the situation!
