Huxley vs. Orwell

Aldous Huxley (writer of Brave New World) and George Orwell (writer of 1984) have written great books about the dystopia of the future and how we should always be on the lookout for conformity.  Two great authors that should still be read today.  What’s interesting is how these two approach the world in totally different ways which you can see here.

In my opinion, Huxley’s world is far more dangerous and harder to fight than Orwell’s.

This blog will sometimes pertain to what I'm learning in my classes, but it will occasionally deal with non-classroom issues that I'm thinking about as well.

    Damn, Huxley’s world is way harder to fight than Orwell’s world. Eerily familiar too.

    cool, I’m a big fan of Huxley. Doors of Perception is one of the most honest things I’ve ever read.
