Huxley Warned Us: parts 1 to 16 complete

In answer to the request from Kenny's Sideshow (great blog, guys) I'm reposting this series as I gather quite a lot of folks have also missed the odd part or two from their archives...

Huxley Warned Us: Part 16
This, the final part of our examination of the key points arising out of Huxley's dire prediction of the future contains a vital warning message for us all. Calling out to us from a half a century ago, the great visionary wrote:

"The methods employed by orthodox educators were and still are extremely inefficient. Under a scientific dictator education will really work - with the result that most men and women will grow up to love their servitude and will never dream of revolution. There seems to be no good reason why a thoroughly scientific dictatorship should ever be overthrown.

"Meanwhile there is still freedom left in the world. Many young people, it is true, do not seem to value freedom. But some of us still believe that, without freedom, human beings cannot become fully human and that freedom is therefore supremely valuable. Perhaps the forces that now menace freedom are too strong to be resisted for very long. It is still our duty to do whatever we can to resist them them."

But sadly we haven't. Everything that makes us what we are has been and continues to be spirited away from us little by little. 50 years after Huxley's strident warning, we've continued to permit this situation to develop through our indifference and collective apathy. We've been too preoccupied - as Huxley observed - with our "endless appetite for distractions" - which Baywatch actress has the biggest tits; Britney Spears' antics, the NFL rankings, blockbuster movies, must-have gadgets, Beyonce's ass, Gerry Springer, Rikki Lake and Oprah Winfrey. We've been hypnotized by all these media rodeo clowns while the Zionist bull was busy trashing our cultural china shop.

Our enemies, that is to say, the traitors who make our laws and broker deals with foreign powers behind our backs; who sell our liberties and hard-fought freedoms for 30 pieces of Jewish silver are all part of the same poison pot, to wit: newspaper proprietors, magazine editors, TV studio executives, movie producers, advertising agents, talk-show hosts, Marxists, internationalists, Jewish bankers, Senior Freemasons, CEOs of global corporations and the One World Government in waiting: the Bilderbergers, the Trilateralists, the CFRers, AIPAC and all the rest of the lying, scheming, cheating scum.

There are some very smart people in the above list, however, make no mistake about it. Whilst you and me have been drunkenly slurring in some seedy bar over who the Red Sox's best ever pitcher was, the agents of our destruction were slowly but surely drawing their plans against us (to paraphrase Wells). They have researched with exquisite detail all our foibles and failings. They are master manipulators par excellence. If we continue with our blind indifference to our approaching fate, then we'll have fully deserved it. Huxley's final conclusion in the lines quoted above is:

"There seems to be no good reason why a thoroughly scientific dictatorship should ever be overthrown."

Think about that stark assessment for a moment. It's perfectly correct. Once they've finally got us, they've got us for keeps. Us, our children and our children's children's children. They'll have completely re-written history by then. As a people, we won't know who we are any more. We'll be whatever THEY tell us we are. This revisionism - the only kind permitted it seems - has ALREADY been underway in the West for some time, as you may be aware. In due course we will become irreversibly enslaved by these criminals for all time to come - just as their 'holy' book foretells. As Huxley states, it simply won't occur to our grandchildren to question their subservience, but even if they were to, the Jews would have ALL the answers. I don't know about you, but as far as this blogger is concerned, that's a prospect that's worth fighting to the last drop of blood to prevent. I WILL NOT BETRAY MY CULTURAL HERITAGE.

Huxley Warned Us: Part 15
Brave New World Revisited, 1958:

"We see, then, that the disease of over-organization has been clearly recognized, that various comprehensive remedies have been prescribed and that experimental treatments of symptoms have been attempted here and there, often with considerable success. And yet, in spite of all this preaching and this exemplary practice, the disease grows steadily worse.
We know that it is unsafe to allow power to be concentrated in the hands of a ruling oligarchy; nevertheless power is in fact being concentrated in fewer and fewer hands. We know that, for most people, life in a huge modern city is anonymous, atomic, less than fully human; nevertheless the huge cities grow steadily huger and the pattern of urban-industrial living remains unchanged. We know that, in a very large complex society, democracy is almost meaningless except in relation to autonomous groups of manageable size; nevertheless more and more of every nation's affairs are managed by the bureaucrats of Big Government and Big Business. It is only too evident that, in practice, the problem of over-organization is almost as hard to solve as the problem of overpopulation. In both cases we know what ought to be done; but in neither case have we been able, as yet, to act effectively upon our knowledge."

This situation of over-organization to which Huxley constantly returns during the course of his work is no accident, but has in fact arisen by design. Organizational complexity is an absolute NECESSITY for the Jew to carry out his plans; his machinations would be readily exposed without it. One thing Jews hate above all else is EXPOSURE. Hitler put it almost poetically in Mein Kampf. The exact quote - though quite well known - eludes me at present, but suffice it to say that it perfectly describes how the Jews desire as many walls of opacity to work behind as they can possibly erect. So the more complex and confusing our world is, all the better for them to work their evil against us. This is one of the primary driving forces behind the advent of Big Government, which the Jews are always so keen to promote (at OUR expense of course).

Things have since unfortunately deteriorated beyond the point where the author's proposed solution would be of any help to us. It was a constructive suggestion 50 years ago perhaps, but is no longer applicable. We didn't take the necessary action when we should have. Our parents let us down just as we are now letting our own children down; consigning them to a life of slavery as a result of our indolence and apathy. For it is undeniably true that "an ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure" - it's less messy for one thing. We didn't make the effort in prevention, so our only remaining option now is to CURE and that will be a much uglier job.

I believe it's fitting at this point to conclude this section with an apposite quote from Winston Churchill:

"If you draft 10,000 regulations, you destroy all respect for the law."

Too many laws, too much complexity. What are we going to do about it?

Huxley Warned Us: Part 14
Aldous Huxley:

"'Free as a bird', we say, and envy the winged creatures for their power of unrestricted movement in all the three dimensions. But, alas, we forget the dodo. Any bird that has learned how to grub up a good living without being compelled to use its wings will soon renounce the privilege of flight and remain forever grounded. Something analogous is true of human beings. If the bread is supplied regularly and copiously three times a day, many of them will be perfectly content to live by bread alone - or at least by bread and circuses alone. 'In the end', says the Grand Inquisitor in Dostoevsky's parable, 'in the end they will lay their freedom at our feet and say to us, "Make us your slaves, but feed us. '"

Isn't this closely analagous to the situation we find ourselves in today? In this couch-potato society, It certainly strikes Phaedrus that way. Though we expect rather more from life than just bread three times a day, it isn't THAT much more. The vast majority of people in the West constitute little more than a mindless peasant underclass that has resigned itself to the treadmill of daily life. People work for 50 years just to put food on the table and keep a roof over their heads, from what little they have left after the ravages of direct and indirect taxation and Jewish investment frauds like pension schemes.

Throughout history, it has regrettably proven to be the case that the peasants - in whichever country - will undergo the most dire privations at the hands of their exploitative masters before they are driven into taking effective action to overthrow the tyranny and oppression from which they suffer. They can be ground down by decades of maltreatment and forced almost to the point of starvation before they will rise up and overturn the established order of things. So the situation we find ourselves in today is entirely of our own collective making. We have what we deserve.

Of course this despairing assessment isn't the whole story. We have a peasantry of so many hundreds of millions of people in the West because the common people are kept in the dark as to their true potential by the omnipresent, Jew-controlled media which is keen to foster in them the idea that the status quo is beyond question and it's simply the way things are and have always been. This is the vital importance of 'entertainment' in the modern world. Every single minute we spend watching some trashy TV soap or reading some garbage newspaper is a minute taxed from our lives. It is a minute during which we simply do not question why the world is in such a dreadful mess and who is responsible for it.

The mainstream jewsmedia performs the role of the rodeo clown with impeccable aplomb. TV networks have developed highly successful techniques for ensuring that once we are watching a channel, we will continue to do so for far longer than we had intended and for far longer than is good for us. They've moved on quite a bit since the days of 'Don't touch that dial!' And all the while we are gawping at their mind-rotting drivel, the Jews know we are no threat to them. If we are ever to liberate our peasant classes from their servitude of the Jew and Jewish interests, then we must find a way to break the media's hold over enough of them for the bulk to follow. In short, we need to work towards achieving a critical mass of Jew-awareness.

Huxley Warned Us: Part 13
From Brave New World Revisited, 1958:

"In practice, as recent history has repeatedly shown, the right to vote, by itself, is no guarantee of liberty. Therefore, if you wish to avoid dictatorship by plebiscite, break up modern society's vast, machine-like collectives into self-governing, voluntarily co-operating groups, capable of functioning outside the bureaucratic systems of Big Business and Big Government. Overpopulation and over-organization have produced the modern metropolis, in which a fully human life of multiple personal relationships has become almost impossible. Therefore, if you wish to avoid the spiritual impoverishment of individuals and whole societies, leave the metropolis and revive the small country community, or alternatively humanize the metropolis by creating within its network of mechanical organizations the urban equivalents of small country communities, in which individuals can meet and co-operate as complete persons, not as the mere embodiments of specialized functions."

Note here that even in the America of the late 1950s, the author was already deeply suspicious of democracy and how it could be subverted by the interests of Big Business. We tend to look back misty-eyed on that seemingly halcyon era from our present standpoint and see it as the golden age of liberty, but it is evident from Huxley's concerns that it was already under threat. My personal belief is that the origins of this erosion of our freedoms had its seeds in our accepting large numbers of Jews fleeing the Nazis from 1930's europe. Something seems to have happened within a few years of the ending of WWII that vastly accelerated the cultural decline that had been simmering away since the 1920s when the numbers of Jews in positions of public influence (Hollywood excepted) was much lower.

The Jews we were foolishly good-hearted enough to welcome to our shores repaid our kindness by proceeding to gnaw away at this once-great country from the inside. They quickly wriggled their way into powerful positions of public influence and seized control of the mass media, and by so doing, the government itself. They enriched themselves at our expense and funneled huge amounts of our tax-dollars to that cancerous, running sore of the Middle East, Israel. Additionally, their appetite for blood had to be satiated by the sacrifice of great numbers of our young people in fighting foreign adventures that were of no benefit to us whatsoever. But with their guile, their determination and their self-belief in their "entitlement" to call all the shots, they somehow got away with it – and still do.

I can almost hear the call of every great civilization in history crying out to America in the late 1930: "Please, please, don't let these Devils in! Afford them no sanctuary! They may look like you and talk like you - they're very good at that - but they're evil! You let them into your great country and within 100 years it'll be nothing but a rotting corpse. These parasites will have eaten away everything you have worked for and totally destroyed your wealth, your way of life and cultural heritage. We beg you from our bitter experience of 3,000 years of dealings with these nomadic parasites: slay them while you still may, for if you fail, then in time they will lay your country waste! Take heed, America! Take heed!"

Pity we couldn't hear them.

Huxley Warned Us: Part 12
Aldous Huxley:

"Under the relentless thrust of accelerating overpopulation and increas­ing over-organization, and by means of ever more effective methods of mind-manipulation, the democracies will change their nature; the quaint old forms - elections, parliaments, Supreme Courts and all the rest - will remain. The underlying substance will be a new kind of non-violent totalitarianism. All the traditional names, all the hallowed slogans will remain exactly what they were in the good old days. Democracy and freedom will be the theme of every broadcast and editorial ­but democracy and freedom in a strictly Pickwickian sense. Meanwhile the ruling oligarchy and its highly trained elite of soldiers, policemen, thought-manufacturers and mind-­manipulators will quietly run the show as they see fit."

Once again, time has proved the great visionary spot-on. The maintenance of these 'props of democracy' is simply a sham which purports to confer some legitimacy to what is wholly illegitimate. The US and many other Western countries are run on behalf of, and in the interests of, World Jewry. However it may appear and whatever our so-called 'leaders' tell us, that is what is ultimately behind the elaborate charade that democracy has become. The interests of you and me and our people count for nothing. We're just here to be taxed and to furnish them substance. Our so-called 'leaders' make promises they never keep just to get elected. Once elected, they get back to serving their true masters for their own naked self-enrichment and aggrandizement - and the rest of us can go to hell in a handbasket:

"How can we control the vast impersonal forces that now menace our hard-won freedoms? On the verbal level and in general terms, the question may be answered with the utmost ease. Consider the problem of overpopulation. Rapidly mounting human numbers are pressing ever more heavily on natural resources. What is to be done? Obviously we must, with all possible speed, reduce the birth rate to the point where it does not exceed the death rate. At the same time we must, with all possible speed, increase food production, we must institute and implement a world-wide policy for conserving our soils and our forests, we must develop practical substitutes, preferably less dangerous and less rapidly exhaustible than uranium, for our present fuels; and, while husbanding our dwindling resources of easily available minerals, we must work out new and not too costly methods for extracting these minerals from ever poorer and poorer ores - the poorest ore of all being sea water. But all this, needless to say, is almost infinitely easier said than done. The annual increase of numbers should be reduced. But how? We are given two choices - famine, pestilence and war on the one
hand, birth control on the other"

Of course the overpopulation problem has grown very much worse since Huxley wrote these words fifty years ago. A population reduction in the order of perhaps as much as 80% is now required. That's BILLIONS of people we're talking about. And this is what the agents of the NWO are secretively working towards. Clearly they're not interested in Huxley's birth control solution, as the flagrant encouragement of casual free sex and racial interbreeding in the popular media attests. That leaves us with famine, pestilence and war. No big surprise here! For a race of people that has always found the stench of rotting goyim flesh appealing, I think we could have seen it coming.

Phaedrus does not wish to appear like some Bible-thumping religious nut, but there is something disturbingly similar between Judaism and Satanism. Harold Rosenthal breezily admitted over 30 years ago (somewhat ill-advisedly in hindsight given the advent of the Internet) that the God of the Jews is actually Lucifer. When we see the works of these people given free reign, as in Palestine, it isn't difficult to form the view that there's something distinctly evil about them and their mindset. How the hell we permit such entities to have vast and over-arching influence in our day-to-day lives is one of world's great mysteries. THEY MUST BE STOPPED BEFORE THEY KILL US ALL.

Huxley Warned Us: Part 11
Aldous Huxley, 1958:

"Is individual freedom compatible with a high degree of individual suggestibility? Can democratic institutions survive the subversion from within of skilled mind-manipulators trained in the science and art of exploiting the suggestibility
both of individuals and of crowds? To what extent can the
inborn tendency to be too suggestible for one's own good or the good of a democratic society be neutralized by education?"

Critical questions indeed! To anyone listlessly surveying our contemporary scene of a half century later, it must appear at first sight that the battle for free thought and independent Will has already been lost. Such vast numbers of people appear to have permanently succumbed to the barrage of incessant propaganda that has crashed through our lives for so many decades. The masses really do appear to be completely brainwashed. However, we shall see that this bleak assessment is overly pessimistic by some considerable measure - thank God!

In Phaedrus' very extensive personal experience, the Politically-Correct quickly have their erroneous paradigm of the world shattered for good once confronted with the bare and unadulterated FACTS. The reason for this is that Politically-Correct dogma is grounded in falsehoods. It is a CONTRIVANCE. It is unable to stand up to any level of scrutiny and reason and quickly crumbles to pieces in the face of it. Thanking God, I can honestly state here that of the scores of persons I have confronted one-to-one personally, NOT A SINGLE ONE has left my presence still clinging to their former ideological baggage. NOT ONE!

It is remarkable but true. Notwithstanding the decades of non-stop propaganda through every conceivable Jewish-controlled medium both overt and subliminal; notwithstanding indoctrination by left-wing libertine perverts in our schools; notwithstanding lectures from appointees in our local and national government - notwithstanding all of this, the dogma of the United Nations, the politically-correct and the social engineers for all their exquisite research and ingenuity - for all that - the depth of penetration of this poisonous mindset on the average citizen is is little more than skin deep and as fragile as an eggshell!

I propose to go no further in this article to explain my favored technique for getting people to see sense (it was published here around last June and I will repost it again for those who cannot find it) as it is off-topic for this discussion on Huxley. Suffice it say here, that propaganda alone, unassisted by drugs, has never permanently damaged anyone's thinking beyond repair. Give me no more than one hour with 80% of people and I'll easily have them unplugged from the Matrix. But having said that, complacency will kill us. Though it IS a simple matter to free the minds of the people, this is dependent on us REACHING them in mass numbers. Until and unless we can get that vital message out, we still remain at grave risk of the permanent, blind enslavement Huxley foresaw:

"The nature of psychological compulsion is such that those who act under constraint remain under the impression that they are acting on their own initiative. The victim of mind-manipulation does not know that he is a victim. To him, the walls of his prison are invisible, and he believes himself to be free. That he is not free is apparent only to other people. His servitude is strictly objective." - AH.

Huxley Warned Us: Part 10
In this extract, Huxley addresses one of the Biggest Lies of the 20th Century - that all men are created equal.

Aldous Huxley, 1958:

"...The orgy of spying, lynching and judicial murder, which these wrong views about magic made logical and mandatory, was not matched until our own days, when the Communist ethic, based upon erroneous views about race, commanded and justified atrocities on an even greater scale. Consequences hardly less undesirable are likely to follow the general adoption of a Social Ethic, based upon the erroneous view that ours is a fully social species, that human infants are born uniform and that individuals are the product of conditioning by and within the collective environment. If these views were correct, if human beings were in fact the members of a truly social species, and if their individual differences were trifling and could be completely ironed out by appropriate conditioning, then, obviously, there would be no need for liberty and the State would be justified in persecuting the heretics who demanded it..."

Here the esteemed writer and visionary takes a distinct swipe against the founders of the United Nations. We have only this (presumably censored) Jewish version of his words from Random House Publishing to go by, but nevertheless it clear that Huxley had no time at all for Communist dogma and rounded repudiated it. It is only sad that we cannot study his original manuscript, for it is highly likely that he would have spelled out in no uncertain terms the inferior forms of life to which he merely alludes here in this 'sanitized version' - for it was written many years prior to the advent of political-correctness and has presumably been 'cleaned up' to avoid offense.

Huxley vehemently eschews the doctrine that all men would be equal in later life if they were each given the same opportunities from birth. Naturally, he tacitly refers to the Negro races here, to whose shortcomings Communism was intentionally blind. The UN/NWO official line is that all extended genetic phenotypes are essentially identical in all but superficial appearance. But we all - those of us in the REAL world that is - know as well as Huxley that there is a striking correlation between IQ and race, with the southern African Bantu coming out bottom of the pile. No amount of preferential, special schooling or 'positive discrimination' can make a silk purse out of a pig's ear. It's an uncomfortable FACT for our white Liberal friends that whilst nurture IS important, NATURE predominates and cannot be denied. A southern African Bantu (or one of its descendants now in Europe or America) can no more become an accomplished scientist, artist or writer, than can a mongrel puppy born in a stable can grow up a racehorse.

If we wish to learn the intrinsic capabilities of ANY race, we need merely to examine their cultural heritage; there's no need to make up stupid lies to pretend things are otherwise. The Negro, like the Jew and the Gypsy, have NOTHING to show for their much-vaunted cultures. They are all incapable of surviving by themselves. The Negroes are simply useless AT BEST, the Gypsies are mostly harmless but can be a dang nuisance at times, and the Jew..... Well, for the Jew I think we need a rather more exhaustive and intensive examination than this study of Huxley's prophecies allows!

Huxley Warned Us: Part 9
Aldous Huxley, 50 years ago in Brave New World Revisited:

"...That a dictator could, if he so desired, make use of [certain psychotropic chemicals] for political purposes is obvious. He could ensure himself against political unrest by changing the chemistry of his subjects' brains and so making them content with their servile conditions. He could use tranquillizers to calm the excited, stimulants to arouse enthusiasm in the indifferent, hallucinants to distract the attention of the wretched from their miseries.

"But how, it may be asked, will the dictator get his subjects to take the pills that will make them think, feel and behave in the ways he finds desirable? In all probability it will be enough merely to make the pills available. Today alcohol and tobacco are available, and people spend considerably more on these very unsatisfactory euphorics, pseudo­stimulants and sedatives than they are ready to spend on the education of their children."

We now know from secret experimental data released by Russia following a series of experiments carried out in the 1960s that adding fluoride to water supplies in concentrations of as little as 1ppm induces in subjects enhanced levels of susceptibility and compliance - a very useful tool indeed for any wayward government. Our so-called 'leaders' are still toying with the idea of introducing it into our drinking water on the grounds of improving dental health, notwithstanding that its psychotropic effects are becoming increasingly known.

So the big question is: could the dental health motive have been a mere pretext all along? Given that the discussion over fluoride remains on-going long after its mind-altering properties have been publicized, it seems quite likely. If there is one thing Huxley told us that we must never forget it is that our real enemies in the West are our governments. They are infinitely more dangerous to us than all the world's disparate terrorist groupings put together. Do we really know what they're injecting our kids with? Could there be more to it than simple vaccination?

Huxley Warned Us: Part 8
In Part 7, we were able to see how blanket control over the media had enabled the Jews to become the only game in town when it came to dissemination of information and that the alphabet soup of TV channels on offer that suggest the availability of free choice is simply an illusion. Virtually ALL the networks are pushing forward the NWO agenda by promoting the idea that free-trade, globalization and mass movements of peoples between countries is a Good Thing which brings jobs and prosperity. And whilst we dive headlong into embracing this cultural suicide, the really big gainers, as always, are the Jews. By acting as intermediaries, agents and obstacles between parties in international trade (a core business of this parasite going back Millenia) they can ALWAYS make a good living, regardless of how impoverished those poor fools competing for ever worsening living standards consequently become.
Huxley, 1958:

"In the West, democratic principles are proclaimed and many able and conscientious publicists do their best to supply electors with adequate information and to persuade them, by rational argument, to make realistic choices in the light of that information. All this is greatly to the good. But unfortunately propaganda in the Western democracies above all in America, has two faces and a divided personality. In charge of the editorial department there is often a democratic Dr Jekyll - a propagandist who would be very happy to prove that John Dewey had been right about the ability of human nature to respond to truth and reason. But this worthy man controls only a part of the machinery of mass communication.

"In charge of advertising we find an anti-democrat because anti-rational, Mr Hyde - or rather a Doctor Hyde, for Hyde is now a Ph.D. in psychology and has a master's degree as well in the Social Sciences. This Dr Hyde would be very unhappy indeed if everybody always lived up to John Dewey's faith in human nature. Truth and reason are Jekyll's affairs, not his . Hyde is a Motivation Analyst, and his business is to study human weaknesses and failings, to investigate those un­conscious desires and fears by which so much of men's conscious thinking and overt doing is determined. And he does this, not in the spirit of the moralist who would like to make people better, or of the physician who would like to improve health, but simply in order to find out the best way to take advantage of their ignorance and to exploit their irrationality for the pecuniary benefit of his employers."

Here again, Huxley re-affirms his conviction that the mass media is working AGAINST the best interests of the people. His 'Dr. Hyde' character is alive and with us in the West today, too. Yet since we are now 50 years down the road from when Huxley penned his observations, the new Dr. Hyde of today has infinitely more techniques for deception in his armory. Fifty years of endless studies into what makes people tick in the most microscopic areas of their lives has yielded hundreds of thousands of documents and reports detailing every gleanable fact from the human psyche and how it may be ruthlessly and cynically manipulated to ensure that the naked greed of the Jew is to some extent at least satiated. And all this goes on with the full backing of Western governments, the leaders of which have become phenomenally wealthy for their tacit assistance in selling out the true interests of the people. So much for 'democracy.' So much for 'public service.'

Huxley Warned Us: Part 7
Aldous Huxley, 1958:

"Mass communication, in a word, is neither good nor bad; it is simply a force and, like any other force, it can be used either well or ill. Used in one way, the press, the radio and the cinema are indispensable to the survival of democracy. Used in another way, they are among the most powerful weapons in the dictator's armory. In the field of mass communications as in almost every other field of enterprise, technological progress has hurt the Little Man and helped the Big Man. As lately as [1910], every democratic country could boast of a great number of small journals and local newspapers. Thousands of country editors expressed thousands of independent opinions. Somewhere or other almost anybody could get almost anything printed.

"Today the press is still legally free; but most of the little papers have disappeared. The cost of wood-pulp, of modern printing machinery and of syndicated news is too high for the Little Man. In the totalitarian East there is political censorship, and the media of mass communication are controlled by the State. In the democratic West there is economic censorship and the media of mass communication are controlled by members of the Power Elite. Censorship by rising costs and concentration of communication-power in the hands of a few big concerns is less objectionable than State ownership and government propaganda; but certainly it is not something of which a Jeffersonian democrat could possibly approve.

"In regard to propaganda, the early advocates of universal literacy and a free press envisaged only two possibilities: the propaganda might be true, or it might be false. They did not foresee what in fact has happened, above all in our Western capitalist democracies - the development of a vast mass communications industry, concerned in the main neither with the true nor the false, but with the unreal, the more or less totally irrelevant. In a word, they failed to take into account man's almost infinite appetite for distractions."

Here we are, half a century on and this situation has, as one might reasonably expect, grown worse still. There was always some element of propaganda in Western media, even pre-Huxley, but it was nothing as remotely unremitting and omnipresent as it is today. Governments and large media organizations (increasingly one and the same entity) could have used their influence to bring about a better society, but they chose, by accident or design, to do the opposite. And the only place where genuine freedom of expression yet survives in on the Internet - and that may not be for very much longer if the powers that be have their way.

The media of today serves - almost without exception - the interests of 'Big Business' with its free trade and globalization agenda; selling out the interests of hard-working people for the VAST self-enrichment of what Huxley calls the 'Power Elite'. Eye-wateringly large sums are made by big business interests (read "Jews") which have asset-stripped this nation and others on an epic scale. The demise of the manufacturing heartlands of the northern midwest attest to this. Ruin, decay, family breakdown, drugs and crime have replaced ordered and prosperous communities. This is all solely due to the Jews' internationalist, borderless world where decent Americans are forced to compete with Chinese peasants and the like who sell their labor for little more than a bowl of rice a day.

The advertising element of the popular media has gotten totally out of control, too. Rather than satisfying consumers' genuine needs and desires as was once the case, it has become a dragon of a business model that festers on our worst fears and anxieties. We no longer buy useful products or services because we NEED them, we buy junk, mass-produced garbage by the shed-load in order to prove to our friends and neighbors that we're 'doing well' and have a 'comfortable lifestyle.' Every advertisement screams out to us that we're missing out on something; if we don't constantly and wantonly consume, there must be something fundamentally wrong in our lives.

Advertising media attempts to make us feel rotten and inadequate and instills in us a a sense of permanent dissatisfaction with every aspect of our existence. The impetus from this form of madness comes from the craven greed of a race of beings who can NEVER have enough and don't care what damage they do in going after it. The American dream was never about having a driveway stuffed full of sports utility vehicles. It was never about having a glamor model for a wife. It was never about taking 4 holidays a year. It was never about having a widescreen TV in every room spewing out its garbage. It was never about so much stuff that the Jews have convinced us, through their stranglehold over the mass media, is what we should be striving for.

If we could only break away from this madness, en-masse, and adopt the kind of lifestyle advocated by the likes of Emerson and Thoreau, the Tribe of Satan would be out of business in a flash. They'd never make a single cent out of us, just as they can't make a penny out of the Amish community. Maybe one day soon when the dollar collapses to Absolute Zero and folks wake up to the reality of the lies, the distortions, the fraud and deceit that's been perpetrated against us for decades, there'll come a realization that all the junk that the Jews told us was so desirable and indispensable wasn't worth jack. Then perhaps we can re-establish this broken, fucked-up society along decent lines. Until that happy day, keep those guns oiled.

Huxley warned Us: Part 6

Aldous Huxley writing in 'Brave New World Revisited' exactly 50 years ago:

"Jefferson said: 'If a nation expects to be ignorant and free
it expects what never was and never will be ... The people cannot be safe without information. Where the press is free, and every man able to read, all is safe.'"

He continues:

"Across the Atlantic another passionate believer in reason was thinking, about the same time, in almost precisely similar terms. Here is what John Stuart Mill wrote of his father, the utilitarian philo­sopher, James Mill: 'So complete was his reliance upon the influence of reason over the minds of mankind, whenever it is [attention-grabbing] distractions of the most fascinating nature are deliberately used as instruments of policy, for the purpose of preventing people from paying too much attention to the realities of the social and political situation.

"The other world of religion is different from the other world of entertainment; but they still resemble one another in being most decidedly 'not of this world'. Both are distractions and, if lived in too continuously, both can become, in Marx's phrase, 'the opium of the people' and so a threat to freedom. Only the vigilant can maintain their liberties, and only those who are constantly and intelligently on the spot can hope to govern themselves effectively by democratic procedures.

" A society, most of whose members spend a great part of their time not on the spot, not here and now and in the calculable future, but somewhere else, in the irrelevant other worlds of sport and soap opera, of mythology and metaphysical fantasy, will find it hard to resist the encroachments of those who would manipulate and control it."

Consider for a moment the incisive nature and power of this simple observation. Huxley at once within one and the same sentence correctly identifies the fundamental reasons behind the way we live today: a disingenuous, Jew-controlled media, an utterly corrupted government, and the masses of idle, ignorant, gullible propaganda-consumers.

Thankfully, you and I, Gentile reader, are not among this class of the intellectually impoverished. We have awoken to the threats that surround us. We are wise to the motivations of those behind it. It is our DUTY to ensure everyone else is likewise made aware of exactly what has been going on now for many decades. The only 'free press' today is the Internet. Out the Liars and murderers! To hell with them! Expose them all!

Huxley Warned Us: Part 5

Aldous Huxley, 1958:

"No people that passes abruptly from a state of subservience under the rule of a despot to the completely unfamiliar state of political independence can be said to have a fair chance of making democratic institutions work. Again, no people in a precarious economic condition has a fair chance of being able to govern itself democratically. [true freedom] flourishes in an atmosphere of prosperity and declines as declining prosperity makes it necessary for the government to intervene ever more frequently and drastically in the affairs of its subjects. Overpopulation and over-organization are two conditions which, as I have already pointed out, deprive a society of a fair chance of making democratic institutions work effectively. We see, then, that there are certain historical, economic, demographic and technological conditions which make it very hard for Jefferson's rational animals, endowed by nature with inalienable rights and an innate sense of justice, to exercise their reason, claim their rights and act justly within a democratically organized society. We in the West have been supremely fortunate in having been given our fair chance of making the great experiment in self-government. Unfortunately it now looks as though, owing to recent changes in our circumstances, this infinitely precious fair chance were being, little by little, taken away from us. And this, of course, is not the whole story. These blind impersonal forces are not the only enemies of individual liberty and democratic institutions. There are also forces of another, less abstract character, forces that can be deliberately used by power-seeking individuals whose aim is to establish partial or complete control over their fellows. Fifty years ago, when I was a boy, it seemed completely self-evident that the bad old days were over, that torture and massacre, slavery, and the persecution of heretics, were things of the past. Among people who wore top hats, traveled in trains, and took a bath every morning such horrors were simply out of the question. After all we were living in the twentieth century. A few years later these people who took daily baths and went to church in top hats were committing atrocities on a scale undreamed of by the benighted Africans and Asiatics. In the light of recent history it would be foolish to suppose that this sort of thing cannot happen again. It can and, no doubt, it will. But in the immediate future there is some reason to believe that the punitive methods of I984 will give place to the reinforcements and manipulations of Brave New World."

Huxley initially points out that democracy as it once was, in the long golden period following Independence in 1776, delivered the goods. The monolithic tenants of the Constitution had only recently been formulated and were at that time entirely safe from the kind of revisions and attacks from Jewish shyster lawyers for whom the sight of a successful, prosperous and peaceful country was to become simply unacceptable.

Hard working European people, their strong, principled leaders and 24 karat gold governance based on openness, integrity, free speech, individual liberty and carefully-drafted legal framework guaranteed the stunning success of young America. It swiftly rose to become the world's richest and most powerful country thanks entirely to the vision of the founding fathers and the hard work, honesty and enterprise of the northern European settlers who built a paradise on earth the like of which the world had never before seen.

Obviously, we all know what has happened since and who exactly it is that is responsible for our collective demise. Huxley in his day correctly predicted that the age of the 'social engineer' was about to commence. Out of the two great dystopian paths, it was more likely that in the drive to gain total control of the masses, the forces of darkness would opt for subtle mind-manipulation rather than outright physical brutality. And for many decades, this was indeed the way of things.

However, whilst social engineering (such as political-correctness and massive immigration, the encouragement of inter-racial breeding and the destruction of the family unit (and through this, society as a whole) have been the core techniques for the implementation of these changes, we have lately seen very much more ruthless methods coming into play which if permitted to continue, will eventually see the infinitely more menacing methodology of Nineteen Eighty-Four coming to fruition.

In fact we have already seen Orwellian developments growing at a pace - since Washington's NeoConmen took the helm 8 years ago. Extraordinary rendition, torture, pre-empitive strikes, the silencing of dissenting voices, the massive increase in the prison population, the use of agencies like the ATF and their sibling clone agencies to act as stormtroopers against America's own citizens. The entire process is now taking on a far more baleful dimension. Legislation is already on the shelf which would - at a stroke - turn America into a clone of 1930s Stalinist Russia. And all that is required is one single precipitating event to bring this about...

We will not have long to wait, either. The trigger might be a genuine external threat, it may be another false flag operation, or it may come from America's repeated provocation of Russia. Either which way, when it happens (and it WILL - and soon) we will have our remaining (already weakened) rights whisked away in the blink of an eye. What happens next will not be pretty. Untold thousands of good men will die and our lives will never be the same again. Our freedoms will be history - at least for a while - and if we do not prevail, our children and their children will be slaves in perpetuity.

But you know what? Maybe we deserve such a future, for we did NOTHING to nip this situation in the bud when the possibility to seize our country back without bloodshed was within our grasp. Now it's probably too late, without considerable loss of life, to do so. Our collective inaction means that when the day of reckoning comes, we'll have a FAR higher price to pay because we didn't act at the outset. it all points to an unavoidable blood bath in which very many of us will perish. Such is the price of early inaction.

The joke of modern 'democracy'...

Aldous Huxley, Brave New World Revisited, 1958:

"In a capitalist democracy, such as the United States, [the entire economic process] is controlled by what Professor C. Wright Mills has called the 'Power Elite.' This Power Elite directly employs several millions of the country's work force in its factories, offices and stores, controls many mil­lions more by lending them the money to buy its products and, through its ownership of the media of mass communication, influences the thoughts, the feelings and the actions of virtually everybody. To parody the words of Winston Churchill, never have so many been manipulated so much by so few. We are far indeed from Jefferson's ideal of a genuinely free society composed of a hierarchy of self ­governing units - 'the elementary republics of the wards, the county republics, the State republics and the Republic of the Union, forming a gradation of authorities.'

"We see, then, that modern technology has led to the con­centration of economic and political power, and to the development of a society controlled (ruthlessly in the total­itarian states, politely and inconspicuously in the democ­racies) by Big Business and Big Government. But societies are composed of individuals and are good only in so far as they help individuals to realize their potentialities and to lead a happy and fruitful life. How have individuals been affected by the technological advances of recent years? Here is the answer to this question given by a philosopher-psychiatrist, Dr Erich Fromm: 'Our contemporary Western society, in spite of its material, intellectual and political progress, is increasingly less conducive to mental health, and tends to undermine the inner security, happiness, reason and the capacity for love in the individual; it tends to turn him into an automaton who pays for his human failure with increasing mental sickness, and with despair hidden under a frantic drive for work and so­-called pleasure.' "

Well, nothing much has changed in the intervening 50 years, we can plainly see - save perhaps the intensity of this on-going manipulation.

Huxley correctly identifies that Big Government and Big Business are working hand-in-hand in a manner that brings nothing but ill for the broad mass of the population. Though purportedly working in OUR best interests, it is increasingly clear, even to those of little perception, that the government is doing quite the opposite and this outrageous state of affairs has been the norm for very many decades. Yet every few years, we shuffle like battery chickens into the polling booths in the delusion that our wishes and needs count for anything. We are simply rubber-stamping the authority of enemies who would happily throw our children into the jaws of ravenous wolves if it served their purposes. No one gets nominated for a shot at the presidency who isn't already pre-approved for the post by Jewish-controlled entities. Come November, we will be presented with the usual choice: a candidate who is slavishly pro-Israel (Obama) or one who is actively so (McCain). Either way, WE THE PEOPLE (for whom it's all supposed to be about) LOSE. Our democracy has been stolen. We get the last word; the final say; but it's meaningless because whoever wins, it's only ever another sock-puppet of Israel - then it's swiftly back to business as usual.

Huxley Warned Us: Part 3

In this 3rd part of this series on the predictions of Aldous Huxley, the great visionary bemoans the fact that in our increasingly overpopulated world, the people who constitute the principal component of the problem by producing the most children who will themselves go on to reproduce prodigiously; propagate poor quality genetic material and turn out huge numbers of biologically-inferior offspring. One can safely infer here that Huxley is referring to the Negro races. When you read the text below it leaves little room for doubt, in fact.

Common sense observations like this could be made freely 50 years ago at the time Huxley was writing, but just imagine the difficulty a professional person would encounter in re-iterating these simple truths today. They'd be branded as a Nazi or a eugenicist and God only knows what else. The result has been that the issue of differential breeding rates between the races and the population explosion cannot even be discussed! A time-bomb is ticking away that could eventually destroy the planet, yet political-correctness dictates we must remain silent on this, one of the most pressing of current issues.

Huxley, 1958:

"In the second half of the twentieth century, we do nothing systematic about our breeding; but in our random and unregulated way, we are not only overpopulating the planet, we are also, it would seem, making sure that these greater numbers shall be of biologically poorer quality. In the bad old days children with considerable, or even slight, hereditary defects rarely survived. Today, thanks to sanitation, modern pharmacology and the social conscience, most of the children born with hereditary defects reach maturity and multiply their kind. Under the conditions now prevailing, every advance in medicine will tend to be offset by a corresponding advance in the survival rates of individuals cursed by some genetic insufficiency. In spite of new wonder drugs and better treatment (indeed, in a certain sense, precisely because of these things), the physical health of the general population will show no improvement, and may even deteriorate. And along with a decline in average healthiness there may well go a decline in average intelligence. Indeed, some competent authorities are convinced that such a decline has already taken place and is continuing. 'Under conditions that are both soft and unregulated,' writes Dr W.H. Sheldon, 'our best stock tends to be out-bred by stock that is inferior to it in every respect ... It is the fashion in some academic circles to assure students that the alarm over differential birth-rates is unfounded; that these problems are merely economic, or merely educational, or merely religious, or merely cultural or something of the sort. This is Pollyanna optimism. Reproductive delinquency is biological and basic.' And he adds that 'nobody knows just how far the average IQ in this country (the USA) has declined since 1916, when Terman attempted to standardize the meaning of IQ 100."

In Phaedrus' opinion, the scientists who sit down and systematically analyze the result of various studies and reach conclusions which they KNOW will not be well received, must proclaim them honestly and fearlessly nevertheless. Not to do so would be a crime against Truth and another victory for the shadowy plotters behind the New World Order, AKA Jewish global domination and our continued, collective enslavement.

Huxley Warned Us: Part 2
Second in the series; to be read in conjunction with Phaedrus' Preamble of Part 1 published here on February 13.

Aldous Huxley:

"...Meanwhile impersonal forces over which we have almost no control seem to be pushing us all in the direction of the Brave New Worldian nightmare; and this impersonal pushing is being consciously accelerated by representatives of commercial and political organizations who have developed a number of new techniques for manipulating, in the interests of SOME MINORITY [my emphasis] the thoughts and feelings of the masses. The techniques of manipulation will be discussed in later chapters.

"For the moment let us confine our attentions to those impersonal forces which are now making the world so extremely unsafe for democracy, so very inhospitable to individual freedom. What are these forces? And why has the nightmare which I had projected into the [26th century], made so swift an advance in our direction? The answer to these questions must begin where the life of even the most highly civilized society has its beginnings - on the level of biology.

"On the first Christmas Day the population of our planet was about two hundred and fifty millions - less than half the population of modern China. Sixteen centuries later, when the Pilgrim Fathers landed at Plymouth Rock, human numbers had climbed to a little more than five hundred millions. By the time of the signing of the Declaration of Independence, world population had passed the seven hundred million mark. In 1931, when I was writing Brave New World, it stood at just under two billions. Today, only twenty-seven years later, there are two thousand eight hundred million of us. And tomorrow – what?"

Huxley's "tomorrow" is of course our today. And the current population of the world is (if I recall correctly) approximately six-and-a-half BILLION! In his sequel to Brave New World, Huxley goes on to describe how better and better drug treatments and cleaner water supplies and more effective disinfectants will only exacerbate the problem of gross human overpopulation (we'll see in detail what he has to say about this later). So when we read the widely-circulated reports about the agents of the New World Order planning to wipe out over 4 billion of us, perhaps we can see that there's some method in the madness, even though some of us reading these lines may be among the masses to be eliminated. Quite what the selection criteria for this future Cull comprise one can only speculate, as myself and others have done elsewhere.

However the fact remains that the world IS grossly overpopulated and far more precariously so now than when the aging Huxley observed it in 1958. In fact we are just starting to see now the onset of widespread food shortages he predicted elsewhere in BNWR. This has shown up in recent steeply rising food prices world-wide, and shortages of basic staples in places such as Africa and the far east. The author is also quite correct to refer to these mysterious forces as "impersonal" - for those behind them care not one jot about you or I, but only their own survival and enrichment. As we saw in Part 1, we have to wake up to the fact that our so-called 'leaders' are in fact our REAL enemies, and far more dangerous than any creation from their feverish collective imagination that they might, from time to time, conjure up to threaten us with.

Finally, note Huxley's supposed use of the term "some minority" in the first paragraph. I think we can all guess to whom he is referring here and I believe it is unlikely (having read much of the man) that he was quite so diplomatic in this original manuscript. However, the text we are studying here is sourced from the Random House edition of BNWR - and like most other publishing houses, Random House is totally owned and controlled by the Jews. I believe therefore that the temptation to tone down the original text was probably too much for them. Heaven knows how many other original manuscripts have been given the same treatment in the course of history in order to stifle the warnings they contain.

Huxley Warned Us: part 1

Aldous Huxley was one of the most outstanding visionaries of the 20th century. His predictions of the direction in which the world was heading have since been proven to be breathtakingly accurate. In 1932 Huxley penned his seminal masterpiece, 'Brave New World' - a novel depiction of a 'dystopian utopia' where the vast majority of the world's populace were genetically and socially-engineered slaves who labored quite contentedly in their ignorance, under the direction of a class of persons described as 'World Controllers' - an unelected elite who kept their underlings in willful subjugation via a combination of relentless subliminal propaganda, free sex, mindless, meaningless, undemanding entertainment and the distribution of a rewarding, 'feel-good' psychotropic drug.

This futuristic novel was set in the in the 26th century, by which time Huxley envisioned his predictions would most likely become reality. However, alarmed by the speed at which the dystopia he had described was coming to fruition, he was forced to accept that the likely arrival of Brave New World (for real) would in fact be much, much sooner than he had ever imagined. In1958 he wrote a sequel entitled: 'Brave New World Revisited'. In this reflective and recondite essay, he held up his prophecies to the transparent scrutiny afforded by the intervening 26 years of socio-political change. He concluded, much to his despair, that the nightmare world he had foreseen in the distant future was in reality "only just around the corner."

Now, fast-forward a further 50 years to 2008. Phaedrus herewith examines a series of extracts from Huxley's 1958 sequel to see exactly how far down the road to outright totalitarianism and slavish subservience we have traveled. The conclusions drawn are as alarming as one could possibly imagine and beg the questions: has a Brave New World been the agenda all along? Did Huxley merely PREDICT its inception? Or did he rather go no small way towards INSPIRING it? Perhaps some clues to this enigma will hopefully arise in the course of this series. Huxley wrote BNWR in the late 1950s - in a matter-of-fact style that was in those days refreshingly free from political-correctness. If you're queasy at the thought of Plain Truth, the best thing to do is shut down your computer and get back to Fox News. For everyone else, however, here we go with our first extract...

"...Omitted from the picture (not as being unimportant, but merely for convenience and because I have discussed them on earlier occasions) are the mechanical and military enemies of freedom - the weapons and gadgets which have so power­fully strengthened the hands of the world's rulers against their subjects, and the ever more ruinously costly preparations for ever more senseless and suicidal wars.

"The chapters that follow should be read against a background of thoughts about the Hungarian uprising and its repression, about the H-­bombs, about the cost of what every nation refers to as 'defense', about those endless columns of uniformed boys, white, black, brown, yellow, marching obediently towards the common grave..."

Much of the above requires no elaboration, but it is interesting to note that Huxley refers to weapons and gadgets that have strengthened the hands of the world's rulers AGAINST (their own) subjects. How much more true is this today than it was 50 years ago? I think we can safely say the drive towards subjugating the world's populations has continued unabashed. Out of a combination of apathy and ignorance, we have permitted this process to be carried out against us. We COULD have stood up against it, but we didn't. We were warned. We have no excuses. And now the situation is worse than ever, and shows no sign of any immediate improvement. If Americans put McCain in the White House, then expect a Draft to follow shortly afterwards and we can once again kiss another generation of our kids goodbye. Someone once said (I believe it was Jefferson) that "The price of freedom is eternal vigilance." Regrettably, that price is one that collectively we have been unwilling to pay. In failing in our duty to ourselves and our children, therefore, we have created a situation in which the only way back to peace and normality is through bloody revolution, for it certainly cannot be achieved through the ballot box, as we all now know only too well, when the only voice of common sense and reason, Ron Paul, was quietly silenced by the crooked, Jew-controlled mainstream media.

Thanks for the repost of the series.

I consider it an important addition to understanding our present conditions plus insight into who I consider an invaluable historical figure.

"Brave New World" was required reading when I was in high school in the late 60's and Huxley left an lasting impression.

I don't know but tend to think that Huxley is not on the reading list of too many schools these days.

"I don't know but tend to think that Huxley is not on the reading list of too many schools these days."

I think 'Harry Potter,' 'Anne Frank's Diary,' 'Schindler's Ark' and the homo-erotic 'Journals of Anais Nin,' are the type of writing now considered as "essential" reading for our young volk.

Unusually, there is a very good biography of Huxley available to all on Wikipedia, however, with your permission, I'd like to supplement this wonderful essay: "Huxley Warned Us: parts 1 to 16 complete" with this biography entry from 'The Oxford Dictionary of National Biography.'

Unlike Wikipedia, the online edition of 'ODNB' is only available to subscribing institutions and individuals, so I thought that readers who had appreciated and enjoyed the "Huxley Warned Us" piece, might also enjoy
reading this scholarly biography.

Huxley, Aldous Leonard (1894–1963), writer, was born at Laleham, a house near Godalming, Surrey, on 26 July 1894, the third son of Leonard Huxley (1860–1933), an assistant master at Charterhouse School and subsequently editor of the Cornhill Magazine, and his first wife, Julia Frances Huxley (née Arnold) (1862–1908) [see under Huxley, Leonard], an educator and daughter of the literary scholar Thomas Arnold (1823–1900), granddaughter of Dr Thomas Arnold (1795–1842) of Rugby School, and niece of Matthew Arnold (1822–1888). As a grandson of T. H. Huxley (1825–1895) and great-grandson of Dr Arnold, Aldous Huxley inherited a passionate interest in science, education, and human psychology. Mrs Humphry Ward [see Ward, Mary Augusta], the novelist, was his aunt; Julian Huxley (1887–1975) his eldest brother.

Education and early career

Huxley attended Prior's Field in Surrey, a school founded by his mother on a progressive-education model. He continued at Hillside, a preparatory school adjacent to Charterhouse, where his father taught. The four children (Julian, Trevenen, Aldous, and Margaret) grew up in the shadow of Thomas Henry Huxley, ‘children from whom nothing but the best would be tolerated’ (Clark, 130). Huxley's arrival at Eton College in autumn 1908 coincided with the first of the great traumatic experiences which marked his life and work: the unexpected death of his mother, Julia. The pale, blue-eyed boy with the oversized head had been very close to her; his devastation was complete, ‘as if a great explosion had taken place in the family’, according to Juliette Huxley (Julian's wife): ‘it was to Aldous the irreparable loss, a betrayal of his faith in life’ (Hunt. L., Huxley, 1985). Then in 1911 Huxley was struck down by a staphylococcic infection in the eye (keratitis punctata) untreated over term-break at Eton. It left him purblind for eighteen months. A central theme in Huxley's writing flowed from this disaster: sight and insight, light and shadow, transcendent vision and human opacity. At home Huxley taught himself to read Braille, to touch-type, and to play the piano. His eyesight improved to one-quarter of normal vision in one eye (he spent half a century experimenting with alternative therapies and surgery). With tutoring, he won a scholarship to Balliol College, Oxford, to read English language and literature. By dilating his eyes with drops and using a large magnifying glass, Huxley was able to read sufficiently to win a first and the Stanhope prize in 1916.

Huxley later noted that his adolescent near-blindness precluded his chosen career: ‘I had of course before I went blind intended to become a doctor but I couldn't go on with that kind of scientific career because I couldn't use a microscope’ (University of California, Los Angeles, Huxley, 1957). A few weeks after the outbreak of the First World War his older brother Trev, having failed to win a place in the civil service list, succumbed to a cyclical depression and committed suicide. In a letter Huxley reflected that it was the highest and best in his brother which caused his downfall: ‘his ideals were too much for him’ (Letters, 68). These tragedies left Huxley detached from the world; in time detachment turned to cynicism: few of his characters shared his brother's idealism.

Huxley's Oxford career was characterized by intellectual jousting and the discovery of the French symbolist poets, particularly Mallarmé. Rake-thin and 6 feet 4½ inches tall, Huxley became a university character. His steps had the tentativeness of the ill-sighted. According to the fashionable journalist Beverley Nichols, ‘Quantities of Aldous Huxley reclined on my sofa, spreading over the cushions, and stretching long tentacles to the floor’ (Nichols, 136). Despite this imposing physical presence, Huxley exuded a quiet charm. He had an unforgettably mellifluous voice, and exhibited a formidable mental archive. Bertrand Russell—an occasional fellow guest with Huxley at Garsington Manor, home to Lady Ottoline Morrell—said he could tell which volume of the Encyclopaedia Britannica the student Huxley was reading by the prominence of subjects with that letter in their conversation. At Garsington, Huxley consorted with the Sitwells, Lytton Strachey, Maynard Keynes, and others in the Bloomsbury circle. In his writings—he started writing poetry but also short stories at Oxford—and often in person, Huxley managed controversy without belligerence. He had an unending, gentle curiosity which endeared him to most.

After Oxford, Huxley moved briefly to London for a secretaryship at the Air Board, then taught at Repton School and at Eton, where among his students were Harold Acton and Eric Blair (George Orwell). By twenty-six Huxley's poetry had matured into four volumes: The Burning Wheel (1916), Jonah (1917), The Defeat of Youth (1918), and Leda (1920), arguably his most powerful poetic statement. Virginia Woolf praised the ‘high technical skill and great sensibility’ of his writing, while Proust placed him in the first rank of young British authors. But Huxley's need to finance a family drove him to work as a literary journalist for John Middleton Murry at The Athenaeum. On 10 July 1919 in Bellem, Belgium, he married Maria Nys (d. 1955), a Belgian refugee who had lived at Garsington. They had one son, Matthew, born in April 1920. They set up in a small flat in Hampstead, London, as Huxley moved on to the Westminster Gazette and Vogue; New York's Century magazine published his short story ‘The Tillotson Banquet’. Huxley was proud of living by his pen.

Early fiction

Huxley's first extended fiction—a novella, ‘The Farcical History of Richard Greenow’ (in Limbo, 1920)—echoes his years of pacifism and a brief stint as a Fabian at Oxford. It was his first novel, Crome Yellow (1921), based on goings-on at Garsington, which brought instant fame. This novel is the first of three ‘house party’ society novels, followed by Antic Hay (1923) and Those Barren Leaves (1925), which satirized social behaviour in post-war Britain using friends and family as fodder for incisive characterizations. The Morrells were particularly offended by their thinly disguised portraits in Crome Yellow; these led to a rift between Lady Ottoline and Huxley lasting for many years. Of Crome Yellow, F. Scott Fitzgerald wrote that ‘this is the highest point so far attained by Anglo-Saxon sophistication’; Huxley was ‘the wittiest man now writing in English’ (Watt, 73). The comic lightness of the novels was undermined by much wider social concerns. In Crome Yellow, Mr Scogan imagines the creation of ‘an impersonal generation’: ‘in vast state incubators rows upon rows of gravid bottles will supply the world with the population it requires’ (p. 28), a theme developed in Brave New World (1932). Moreover, a dark thread runs through Huxley's musings on corruption in the smart set; his characters are torn between pleasures of the flesh and an austere dedication to the spirit, and Huxley was willing to expose human frailty, to illuminate hypocrisy. We have in us a higher essence, Huxley suggested, but it is understood by apes. The early novels were interspersed with brilliant collections of short stories, including Mortal Coils (1922), Little Mexican (1924), and Two or Three Graces (1926). In Point Counter Point (1928) Huxley turned his friendship with D. H. Lawrence into an international best-seller, and in Proper Studies (1929) he abandoned social satire and took a more didactic direction. In these years Huxley found his three-a-year contract with his publisher Chatto and Windus (usually a volume of essays, short stories, and a novel) daunting.

Huxley moved in a world of wit and erudition, ‘yet wore his learning lightly, with an off-hand, man-of-the world air which was disarming’ (Brooke, 6). Gertrude Stein considered him part of the ‘lost generation’, a group made cynical and numb by human suffering in the First World War. Yet Huxley's own life in the mid-1920s was harmonious and satisfying. A round-the-world tour in 1925 brought him before readers in Bombay, Kyoto, and Los Angeles. With his royalties he purchased small villas in southern France (first in Bandol, then in Sanary) and a Bugatti convertible for Maria, specially stretched to accommodate his huge height. The Huxleys summered in Italy, at Forte dei Marmi, and in France. The period 1921 to 1933 was the most productive and perhaps the happiest of his life.

As the 1930s opened, the Huxleys lived outside Paris in Suresnes, visiting London for the production of his plays, such as The World of Light (1931). Huxley published an enormous number of articles for the Hearst newspaper group and elsewhere, only recently collected (Sexton, Bradshaw). Key themes of the later, socially conscious Huxley, such as population control and the psychological roots of fascism, appear in these essays, and in publications such as Nash's Pall Mall Magazine, Time and Tide, and The Star. He also worked on Now More than Ever (1931), a play based on the notorious Swedish financier Ivar Kreuger, which was his most explicit attack on the evils of free-market capitalism. In summer 1932 Huxley published Brave New World, which enhanced his fortunes and reputation as the best-known British novelist between the wars. It was an international best-seller, particularly in paperback editions in the 1950s, and was translated into twenty-eight languages. The novel, the first about human cloning, is a dystopia set five centuries in the future, when overpopulation has led to biogenetic engineering. Through computerized genetic selection, social engineers create a population happy with its lot. All the earth's children are born in hatcheries, and Soma, a get-happy pill, irons out most problems. Huxley wrote to George Orwell suggesting that Nineteen Eighty Four's vision of governmental autocracy was less likely than Brave New World's society amusing itself to death: owing to infant conditioning and drugs ‘an all-powerful executive of political bosses and their army of managers control a population of slaves who do not have to be coerced because they love their servitude’ (Letters, 604). In a new foreword written in 1946 Huxley had second thoughts. His original vision denied the possibility of social sanity, which in 1946 he considered the book's ‘most serious defect’. He went on to catalogue the possibility of sanity, ‘the conscious and intelligent pursuit of man's Final End’ (Brave New World, iii), and ‘unitive’ spiritual knowledge in his commentaries in the anthology The Perennial Philosophy (1946).

In winter 1934 Huxley returned to England from France and took a seven-year lease on a flat in the Albany, Piccadilly, London, where he worked on Eyeless in Gaza (1936). This novel catapults the reader and its hero, Anthony Beavis, across time periods, a structure Huxley found both troubling and challenging. Like the chorus in Greek drama, the effect of this time-shifting is fatalistic and oddly moving. The book's message, ‘I know what I ought to do, and I do what I oughtn't’, is articulated repeatedly. This was Huxley's most autobiographical fiction; upon publication, friends and family were again furious at their characterizations.

Crisis and emigration

Toward the end of 1934 Huxley suffered a severe writer's block. He had hoped that London would inspire him, but its grey, sooty skies dimmed his vision. Maria Huxley wrote to friends of insomnia and ‘gloom, irritation, lack of work’ (Letters, 392). A niece recalls him as ‘stooped, intense, sort of tortured’ (private information). After fifteen years as England's cynic, Huxley had exhausted his stock-in-trade. Physically and spiritually he sank to his nadir; bright, fishy eyes peered out from black-rimmed bottle-glass lenses, his face lined with worry. Pressures from his multi-book contract mounted. According to Sybille Bedford, the Huxleys' house guest at Sanary and the Albany, and later Huxley's biographer, Brave New World had become a burden to live up to.

Huxley's depression yielded to various therapies, including F. M. Alexander's spine-straightening exercises. He also underwent a near-religious conversion to pacifism, a cause sweeping America in the early 1930s and England with the ‘Oxford oath’ against participation in armies. ‘The thing finally resolves itself into a religious problem’, he wrote to a friend (Letters, 398). Pacifism (and his new friend Gerald Heard) inspired him to give public lectures, which initially terrified him. Publication of Eyeless in Gaza (1936) did little to improve Huxley's situation. His hankering after physical and spiritual re-education, and through these transcendence, was not well received by colleagues. C. Day Lewis called him ‘the prophet of disgust’, while Stephen Spender was unconvinced: ‘we had to wait for Aldous Huxley to propose that prayers are an exercise for the soul, like an elastic exerciser or a dose of Eno's fruitsalts’ (Spender, ‘Open letter to Aldous Huxley’, Left Review, June 1936). Fellow pacifists, by July 1936 abandoning the creed in defence of Republican Spain, attacked the novel as muddled thinking.

Finally in spring 1937 the Huxleys (with Gerald Heard and his friend Christopher Wood) sailed for New York and began a five-week car journey across the United States, summering in San Cristobal, New Mexico, where Aldous Huxley finished a volume of metaphysics and pacifism, Ends and Means (1937). Promised sales of his books to Hollywood studios—a promise never fulfilled—he continued west to Los Angeles and planned a speaking tour on pacifism around the country with Heard. At the end of this tour in January 1938 the Huxleys returned to California, attracted by its isolationism, its interest in Hinduism and Buddhism, and its clear, bright air which aided Huxley's vision. Huxley, who had been an atheist in his youth, and who in his early fiction had derided Catholicism, protestantism, and Indian religions, became a Hindu Vedantist (with Buddhist leanings), along with Heard and Christopher Isherwood, whom he met in California. Huxley had been interested in religious mysticism from the mid-1930s but this interest was strengthened by his move to California and a study of the Veda. His most extensive writings on this are found obscurely in essays in Vedanta for the Western World, a magazine co-edited by Isherwood (1945), and in an introduction to Isherwood's translation (with Swami Prabhavananda) of the Bhagavad Gita in 1944 (published in 1954).

Screenwriting in Hollywood

Though hoped-for sales to Hollywood film studios did not materialize, screenwriting jobs came through the assistance of Anita Loos. The Huxleys were soon enmeshed in Hollywood's new immigrant community, which included Bertolt Brecht, Thomas and Heinrich Mann, and George Cukor. Huxley's films were on topics of great personal interest: Madame Curie, a bio-pic drafted in 1938 (and later rewritten by F. Scott Fitzgerald); Pride and Prejudice also for Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, (1940) and Jane Eyre (1943), whose screenplay Huxley wrote with the director Robert Stevenson and John Houseman. But Huxley found himself tethered to writers' buildings and awaiting contract renewals. Disaffected by his meetings with studio executives, he wrote to his brother Julian that they ‘have the characteristics of the minds of chimpanzees, agitated and infinitely distractible’ (Letters, 439). Huxley, who worked as an active screenwriter for five years, was also derisive of Hollywood film, considering it a soporific, a bone to the poor, the powerless, and the plain who ‘are themselves and not somebody else’: ‘hence those Don Juans, those melting beauties, those innocent young kittens, those beautifully brutal boys, those luscious adventuresses. Hence Hollywood’ (The Olive Tree, 1936, 38–40).

In the early 1940s the Huxleys settled into Santa Monica canyon, where many European expatriates lived, including Isherwood. The Huxleys were delighted by the oddities of California, such as what Maria called ‘its fancy un-dress costume’. The tide of screenwriters from abroad (H. G. Wells, P. G. Wodehouse, and Anthony Powell, among others) washed up in the banquet hall at W. R. Hearst's San Simeon castle, the backdrop for Huxley's After Many a Summer (1939; published in the United States as After Many a Summer Dies the Swan). Here Huxley satirized a classic American tycoon, while insisting that the quest for immortality by physical means is as pointless as the quest for fulfilment by possessions. Huxley's first full-length biography, Grey Eminence (1940), was a study of Père Joseph, Cardinal Richelieu's aide. This neglected work shows a cinematization of Huxley's prose and some parallels with his own search for transcendence, as Père Joseph opens himself ‘to its purifying transforming radiance’ (p. 12). In 1942 Huxley used savings from his screenwriting work to buy a cottage in Llano del Rio in the Mojave desert. He wrote for the screen until America's involvement in the Second World War, at which point the pacifist Huxley could not find (and was not asked to write) patriotic, win-the-war films.

Later years

In the midst of petrol and tyre rationing Huxley, in isolation, produced three extraordinary volumes as he approached his fiftieth birthday. The Art of Seeing (1942) is an autobiographical study of the physical rehabilitation methods of D. W. E. Bates, which greatly improved his vision. Huxley had practised the Bates method of visual re-education avidly throughout the war years and after, with regular tutorials. In January 1940 he wrote to Julian of a breakthrough: ‘Yesterday for the first time [since childhood] I succeeded, for short stretches, in getting a single fixed image from both eyes together’ (Letters, 450). But opinions in his circle of friends differed as to the effectiveness of this treatment. In The Art of Seeing, however, Huxley suggests that there is a parallel in the way physical discipline could perfect vision while spiritual discipline could perfect insight. Meanwhile The Perennial Philosophy (1946) was an effort to find common ground among the world's religions in mysticism, and Time Must Have a Stop (1945), Huxley's response to a world at war, took his concerns with spiritual discipline into fiction.

The post-war years alternately haunted Huxley with visions of devastated cities and populations and hope that humanity might triumph over its increasingly potent weaponry. In Science, Liberty, and Peace (1946) and Ape and Essence (1949) he offered twin visions, light and dark, of humanity's future. The former is a hopeful appeal to scientists to consider humane values in research. Ape and Essence, Huxley's second novel of science fiction, is a darkly comic satire, in the form of a screenplay, of life in a post-apocalyptic Los Angeles. His play The Gioconda Smile (1948) was adapted for the screen as A Woman's Vengeance, but except for fanciful projects such as Walt Disney's Alice in Wonderland and an adaptation of Cervantes for the cartoon character Mr Magoo, his film-writing career was firmly at an end. He was satirized as the ineffectual scriptwriter Boxley in F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Last Tycoon (1941).

In June 1948 the Huxleys left America for Europe for the first time since 1937. In England they found a warmer reception than earlier headlines in the press, such as ‘Gone with the wind up’, might have suggested. Many critics dismissed Huxley's writings in America, considering him Barmy in Wonderland, as P. G. Wodehouse entitled one of his Hollywood novels. In a symposium organized by the London Magazine in 1955, of the work he had published while living in America only After Many a Summer was discussed, and that was roundly attacked. Huxley the Vedantist, the pacifist, the experimenter in education, health, and psychoactive phenomena, was disregarded. The Huxleys returned to the United States in autumn 1950. In the following spring Huxley had a recurrence of iritis following a bout of influenza, which may have shaped perhaps the darkest of his writings, The Devils of Loudun (1952), a historical recreation of a story of demonically possessed French nuns and exorcists. The depression which accompanied his physical illness only increased alongside Maria Huxley's half-acknowledged cancer. Searching in May 1953 for personal balance, and for new ways of seeing, Huxley took a tablet of mescaline, the laboratory-synthesized derivative of the peyote cactus used for centuries by native Americans, which produced effects similar to those of LSD. Humphrey Osmond MD guided him through an odyssey which culminated in Huxley briefly retrieving the stereoscopic vision which had eluded him since his teenage years. Huxley had sought clear sight through pills, operations, visual retraining, and spiritual disciplines; it eluded him. Under the influence of mescaline he ‘saw as painters see’, as he wrote in an autobiographical account, The Doors of Perception (1953). A similar theme—the universality of transcendence—appears in Heaven and Hell (1956), while the quest for physical sight and vision (which characterized his American period), recurs in Themes and Variations (1950), in Tomorrow and Tomorrow and Tomorrow (1956), and Brave New World Revisited (1958), as well as in major essays in American publications such as Esquire, in which he had a monthly column from July 1955 to April 1957, and World Review, in which he published the two-part essay ‘The double crisis’.

Just over a year after Maria Huxley's death on 12 February 1955, Huxley married Laura Archera, an Italian violinist, writer, and psychotherapist, on 19 March 1956. They moved into the Hollywood hills. Huxley had begun his last novel, Island (1962), an earnest, overlong story of an American cynic plane-wrecked on an island, and his recovery through participating in the island society's unorthodox health and educational practices.

In his last half-dozen years, Aldous Huxley—who twenty-five years before could barely be persuaded to speak in public—earned his living principally as a lecturer, including at the University of California, Berkeley, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Menninger Clinic in Topeka, Kansas. In 1960 a dentist in Kansas removed a pre-cancerous lesion incompletely, failing to stop what developed into cancer of the tongue. By 1962 this had metastasized throughout his body. Huxley refused surgery for the cancer because it would have impaired his speech. His declining health only increased the fervour with which he finished Island—‘this is what Brave New World should have been, and wasn't’, his son Matthew said (private information)—although Huxley found a utopia far more difficult to write than a dystopia. His valedictory sense was hastened in May 1961 by a fire which destroyed his home in the Hollywood hills along with his manuscripts. Huxley was stoically detached about this. His stepdaughter Ellen Hovde described his final mood: ‘He is one of the few people who got more open and available as he grew older. I think by the time he died, he was very young’ (Hunt. L., Hovde, 1986). News of his death at his home, 6233 Mulholland Highway, Los Angeles, on 22 November 1963 was lost in coverage of John F. Kennedy's assassination. Huxley was cremated in Los Angeles on 23 November 1963, and in 1971 his ashes were returned to England and interred on 27 October in his parents' grave at Compton cemetery, Surrey.

Subsequent reputation

During his lifetime Aldous Huxley had two distinct audiences: first, a largely European and British one, for his potent satires of his social milieu; second, the audience created by the didactic writings of the 1950s, particularly The Doors of Perception, which, with Island, heralded the youth culture of the 1960s. For the second audience, Huxley's appeal was social and philosophical, rather than literary. Later this audience gave way to a third, that was interested in his social prophecy, distanced from the bitter response to his experiments with psychedelics, which in England was extreme. ‘The Witch Doctor of California produces another prescription for his suffering tribe’, wrote Alistair Sutherland in typical response (Twentieth Century, May 1954). As late as 1989 the Oxford Companion to English Literature disregarded the work of his American years.

The Aldous Huxley Centenary Symposium in 1994 in Münster, Germany, and the International Aldous Huxley Society which emerged from that gathering, reflect a continuing and widespread interest in Huxley, with two or three volumes of criticism appearing each year. Recent Huxley scholarship has made available new, and more complete, texts of his writing and has diminished the gap between appreciation of his early English (and European) years and his last quarter-century in the United States. Brave New World has returned to popular culture as the first novel about human cloning. Public radio in the United States and the BBC produced features and documentaries on him in the 1990s. Today Huxley is an icon of the avant-garde, a development which began with his friend Stravinsky composing the Variations for orchestra, subtitled ‘In Memory of Aldous Huxley’ in 1963–4 (also known as the ‘Huxley Variations’). In 1968 Huxley appeared on the cover of the Beatles' Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band: ‘we came up with a list of our heroes’, remembered Paul McCartney; ‘it was about time we let out the fact that we liked Aldous Huxley’ (Associated Press, 1 June 1987). This second audience bought sixteen printings of Island and twenty-three of The Doors of Perception. Huxley's name has been memorialized in the name of a street in Los Angeles, and his life-size image commercialized in an advertisement for Bass ale in 1999. In forthcoming decades Huxley may be read not primarily as a novelist but as a metaphysical savant open to the psychological dimensions of healing and the psychic capacities of human intelligence.

Displaying an honesty that a plagiarist, like Einstein, could never bring himself to use, Sir Isaac Newton famously remarked, that if he'd seen further than other men, he'd done so only by "standing on the shoulders of giants."

Remembering Newton's words and reading "Brave New World Revisited." One cannot help but think of Huxley.

Standing 6' 5'' - Aldous Huxley was certainly a physical giant. And while Huxley, the great visionary, could barely see past the end of his nose, he still fits the bill perfectly as its obvious Newton did not have 20/20 vision in mind when he coined his great metaphor.

We might think of Aldous Huxley as one of nature's great contradictions. A paradox, perhaps?

The loss of his beloved mother when he was 14, gifted him the essential key of cynicism, armed with this, all free thinkers are able to release themselves from the shackles of this materialistic hell. Then, three years later, at the age of 17, he was struck by more fortuitous-misfortune (sic) when his eyesight was all but destroyed due to neglect of infection. This saved Huxley from almost certain death in the bloody slaughterhouse, laughingly called: The Great War, forcing him to develop an insight, so perceptive, so penetrating, that it might be fair to say, that far from being "disabled" by his condition, he had in fact been "enabled" and was now fit and ready to view the world as it truly was, and predict with uncanny accuracy; just what it would soon become.

His early physical and emotional trauma could have ruined him. Instead, by arresting the process of development which society deems normal, but is in fact abnormal, he avoided the conditioning process that brings a child to adult maturity, devoid of spirit and accepting of a life held in check, working as a willing tax slave and always ready to do their duty as patriotic cannon fodder. These are what George W. Bush calls: "freedom loving people."

Those other "citizens" who fail this rite of passage often live out their days as "misfits and "trouble causers" hamstrung in life due to a myriad of "neuroses" and "personality disorders." Fortunately, Huxley's genius, fortitude and dogged determination were enough to keep him from the scrap heap, and we should all give thanks for that.

In chapter III of BNWR, Huxley quotes the eminent philosopher and psychiatrist Dr Erich Fromm, in support of the notion that societies invert the truth about mental illness, and what actually causes it:

"...We see, then, that modern technology has led to the concentration of economic and political power, and to the development of a society controlled (ruthlessly in the totalitarian states, politely and inconspicuously in the democracies) by Big Business and Big Government. But societies are composed of individuals and are good only insofar as they help individuals to realize their potentialities and to lead a happy and creative life. How have individuals been affected by the technological advances of recent years? Here is the answer to this question given by a philosopher-psychiatrist, Dr. Erich Fromm:
Our contemporary Western society, in spite of its material, intellectual and political progress, is increasingly less conducive to mental health, and tends to undermine the inner security, happiness, reason and the capacity for love in the individual; it tends to turn him into an automaton who pays for his human failure with increasing mental sickness, and with despair hidden under a frantic drive for work and so-called pleasure.
Our "increasing mental sickness" may find expression in neurotic symptoms. These symptoms are conspicuous and extremely distressing. But "let us beware," says Dr. Fromm, "of defining mental hygiene as the prevention of symptoms. Symptoms as such are not our enemy, but our friend; where there are symptoms there is conflict, and conflict always indicates that the forces of life which strive for integration and happiness are still fighting." The really hopeless victims of mental illness are to be found among those who appear to be most normal. "Many of them are normal because they are so well adjusted to our mode of existence, because their human voice has been silenced so early in their lives, that they do not even struggle or suffer or develop symptoms as the neurotic does." They are normal not in what may be called the absolute sense of the word; they are normal only in relation to a profoundly abnormal society. Their perfect adjustment to that abnormal society is a measure of their mental sickness. These millions of abnormally normal people, living without fuss in a society to which, if they were fully human beings, they ought not to be adjusted, still cherish "the illusion of individuality," but in fact they have been to a great extent deindividualized. Their conformity is developing into something like uniformity. But "uniformity and freedom are incompatible. Uniformity and mental health are incompatible too. . . . Man is not made to be an automaton, and if he becomes one, the basis for mental health is destroyed."
"Brave New World Revisited," Chapter III.

Later, another psychiatrist, R D. Laing, would say much the same thing when he challenged the right of Society to define its self as, collectively "sane" while imposing its will on those individuals it deemed to be "insane."

Laing focused his thinking on the disturbed individual in relation to his/her family. Families, of course, are components of society - Microsocieties, if you will. As pressure from the controlling elite is channelled through their proxy Governments, it then comes to bear directly upon individuals who in the main, gather together in intimate groups, which we call “family." It is here, in this closed environment, that the destructive effects of our abnormal society are most often revealed.

It's no coincidence, that the "lone nut" who shoots dead a dozen school kids on his way to Macdonalds, is in fact, just that; a "lone nut" living alone deprived of family contact, In being isolated, he’s been denied the control and containment of the family unit. He has no "pressure cooker" in which to stew.

Therefore, unlike the majority of "nuts" who let of steam in domestic privacy - the loner tends to blow his lid in public.

The strength of freedom in Laing’s personality was undermined by his own demons. He was a rebel, but he was a boorish, boozy rebel, reduced to displaying himself to poor effect on late night chat shows. His brilliance and independence of mind were often upstaged by his own uncontrollable ill discipline, and his message would often be lost due to the tragic clown on display.

When R D. Laing collapsed and died on a tennis court, it wasn't just the coronary heart disease cited on his death certificate that had brought him to his knees.

It was the years spent resisting the weight of Western society bearing down upon a man, who, though ill suited to the task, had chosen to promote the controversial truth: That modern society, is in fact; the cause of our ills and not the remedy. And, despite all his faults, we should remember Laing for that if nothing else.

The real genius of Huxley's "Brave New World Revisited” isn’t the message that it contains. For in giving you the message, he is in fact only stating the truth. The fact that 99% of people cannot see the truth for themselves does stand as a shocking indictment of our fellow man, but not as evidence of Huxley's genius.

His genius is evident in his coruscating prose. The text of his great work is as beautiful as it is convincing. How could you not believe what he was saying was the absolute truth?

His work should stand on its own without any need for examination of meaning or explanation as to relevance. However, Mr Huxley did say that, matters, already bad in the 1950's would continue to deteriorate markedly over the forthcoming 50yrs. And, so now, in 2008, we have on display here his masterpiece, dissected, section by section and explained, step by step - albeit brilliantly by "phaedrus" - simply because; due to the decline in education and intelligence, as predicted by Huxley, many people now need a guiding hand in order to understand what couldn't be more obvious.

The fact that this most brilliantly simple of essays has to be published in this form only goes to prove that Huxley was again, right on the money, when he wrote:

"And along with a decline of average healthiness there may well go a decline in average intelligence. Indeed, some competent authorities are convinced that such a decline has already taken place and is continuing. "Under conditions that are both soft and unregulated," writes Dr. W. H. Sheldon, "our best stock tends to be outbred by stock that is inferior to it in every respect. . . . It is the fashion in some academic circles to assure students that the alarm over differential birthrates is unfounded; that these problems are merely economic, or merely educational, or merely religious, or merely cultural or something of the sort. This is Pollyanna optimism. Reproductive delinquency is biological and basic." And he adds that "nobody knows just how far the average IQ in this country [the U.S.A.] has declined since 1916, when Terman attempted to standardize the meaning of IQ 100."

Aldous Huxley was friends with Bertrand Russell and H G. Wells. This must have made for some lively conversations, as both Russell and Wells favoured World Government and NWO elitism. Despite this, I would recommend to your readers: “The Impact of Science on Society” by Russell and H G. Wells: “New World Order” which can be read online here:

If only Huxley had had use of Mr Wells “Time Machine” By taking his clever but arrogant friends forward in time, he’d have surely convinced them as to the folly of their beliefs. However, I’m sure any satisfaction gained by Huxley, would have been offset by the dire confirmation of his own bleak predictions.

In closing, might I thank whoever it was that laboured so brilliantly over this seminal work. This is the standard of work that should be the norm, rather than the exception to the rule. Sadly, this is seldom the case.
