    Brave New World

    Hi Mike and friends!

    Well.. I finished Brave New World yesterday. It was an astonishing read and quite a literary piece to think about afterwards.

    I don't know if A. Huxley was saying he preferred liberalism over socialism or any other political branch? What do you guys think?

    I got the impression that he was after our mental ability to think for ourselves and not fall into a trap of just "being happy and content, all the time". I got that impression even before i read this book that people fall into a trap of acceptance and not growing as people to understand other people fully.

    Or was it just a view on Modernism?

    Animal Farm and 1984 are next!..

    Huxley wrote several philosophy books in his day, and was a major influence in many circles. You might wish to seek out some of these works if you enjoyed Brave New World. Still one of my favorites.
