Chris Hedges' Columns: 2011: A Brave New Dystopia

Quote:

2011: A Brave New D;ystopia

By Chris Hedges'

The two greatest visions of a future dystopia were
George Orwell’s “1984” and Aldous Huxley’s
“Brave New World.” The debate, between those
who watched our descent towards corporate
totalitarianism, was who was right. Would we be,
as Orwell wrote, dominated by a repressive
surveillance and security state that used crude and
violent forms of control? Or would we be, as Huxley
envisioned, entranced by entertainment and
spectacle, captivated by technology and seduced
by profligate consumption to embrace our own
oppression? It turns out Orwell and Huxley were
both right. Huxley saw the first stage of our enslavement.
Orwell saw the second. (more).
