“Anyone concerned with preserving the human spirit must read and comprehend Aldous Huxley’s timeless masterpiece now more than ever.
One of the most foreboding dystopian masterpieces, a masterpiece. The Wall Street Journal
The profoundly significant literary classic Brave New World by Aldous Huxley paints a sobering picture of an unequal, technologically advanced future in which people are genetically engineered, socially brainwashed, and drugged to maintain an authoritarian social order at the expense of their freedom, humanity, and perhaps even their souls. Huxley, who was described as “a genius who spent his life denouncing the forward march of the Machine,” was a man of unmatched abilities, an artist, a spiritual seeker, and one of history’s most important astute observers of human nature and civilization. Millions of people have read his masterwork, Brave New World, which continues to be urgently relevant today as both a warning to be heeded as we go into the future and as a thought-provoking, gratifying work of literature. Brave New World, written in the 1930s as fascism was on the rise, also relates to the 21st-century world, dominated by mass entertainment, technology, medicine and medicines, the arts of persuasion, and the covert power of elites.”
