Brave New 1984 World... (walk with me)
Although in 1958 it did seem that Huxley was correct that things overall seemed to be heading more in the direction of events described in his book Brave New World rather than Orwell's vision of the future in his book 1984, It seems to me that Both books have been studied as much as any religious text by the powers that be (PTB).
I would describe the current assault on humanity by PTB as an "Over and Under Shotgun" approach which uses elements of Both control strategies strengths while seeking to minimize their relative weaknesses. This picture will give you the, ahem, basic idea:
PTB is aiming (pun intended) for total spectrum control.
Which puts us presently in Brave New 1984 World.
Today, we look at Huxley's view... with my added comments noted as RM >>>
From the Foreword to Brave New World Revisited (written 27 years After Huxley wrote Brave New World in 1958).
But liberty, as we all know, cannot flour ish in a country that is permanently on a war footing, or even a near-war footing. RM >>> check. Permanent wars going now since Gulf War #1. Permanent crisis justifies permanent control of everybody and everything by the agencies of the central government. RM >>> Check. Patriot Act in Place.
This blind biological enemy of freedom is allied with immensely powerful forces generated by the very advances in technology of which we are most proud.
RM >>> Technology has made the world smaller. All the better for PTB to control the growing population. Got a smart phone ? Onstar? GPS knows . Netflix?

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 si lenced 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 per fect adjustment to that abnormal society is a measure of their mental sickness.

Here, Huxley quotes Fromm: 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 indi viduality," but in fact they have been to a great extent deindividualized. Their conformity is developing into something like uniformity. But "uniformity and free dom 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."
- philosopher-psychiatrist, Dr. Erich Fromm

Liberalism 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.

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 demo cratic 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 some where 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.

As the art and science of manip ulation come to be better understood, the dictators of the future will doubtless learn to combine these tech niques with the non-stop distractions which, in the West, are now threatening to drown in a sea of irrele vance the rational propaganda essential to the mainten ance of individual liberty and the survival of demo cratic institutions.
Today the art of mind-control is in the process of becoming a science. The practitioners of this science know what they are doing and why. They are guided in their work by theories and hypotheses solidly established on a massive foundation of experimental evidence. Thanks to the new insights and the new techniques made possi ble by these insights, the nightmare that was "all but realized in Hitler's totalitarian system" may soon be completely realizable.
RM >>> Check. Remember Huxley said this in 1958! You've Come a long way
The dema gogic propagandist must therefore be consistently dogmatic. All his statements are made without qualification. There are no grays in his picture of the world; everything is either diabolically black or celestially white. In Hitler's words, the propagandist should adopt "a systematically one-sided attitude to wards every problem that has to be dealt with." He must never admit that he might be wrong or that people with a different point of view might be even partially right. Opponents should not be argued with; they should be attacked, shouted down, or, if they become too much of a nuisance, liquidated. The morally squeamish intellectual may be shocked by this kind of thing. But the masses are always convinced that "right is on the side of the active aggressor."

As the Buddhists insist, most of us are half asleep all the time and go through life as somnambulists obeying somebody else's suggestions. Enlightenment is total awakeness. The word "Buddha" can be translated as "The Wake.")
RM >>> NUFF SAID.
If hu man 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 persecut ing the heretics who demanded it.
RM >>> Check. Patroits are to be cast as Extremists. Liberty as a Threat to Security.
Democracy and freedom will be the theme of every broadcast and editorial -- but democracy and free dom in a strictly Pickwickian sense (intended or taken in a sense other than the obvious or literal one). Meanwhile the ruling oligarchy and its highly trained elite of sol diers, policemen, thought-manufacturers and mind-manipulators will quietly run the show as they see fit. The underlying substance will be a new kind of non-violent totalitari anism. All the traditional names, all the hallowed slo gans will remain exactly what they were in the good old days.

By the end of the present century, there may, if we try very hard, be twice as much food on the world's markets as there is today. But there will also be about twice as many people, and several billions of these people will be living in partially industrialized countries and consuming ten times as much power, water, timber and irreplaceable minerals as they are consuming now. In a word, the food situation will be as bad as it is today, and the raw materials situation will be considerably worse.
RM >>> Check. Georgia Guidestones Constructed. Depopulation Meme is in play.
At this point we find ourselves confronted by a very disquieting question: Do we really wish to act upon our knowledge? Does a majority of the population think it worth while to take a good deal of trouble, in order to halt and, if possible, reverse the current drift toward totalitarian control of everything?
RM >>> ??? Remember when Huxley said at this point it was 1958! It is my opinion at this point in 2011 that Universal Earth Changes are more likely to reverse this clear TOTALITARIAN DRIFT THAN ARE THE PERCENTAGE OF AWARE PEOPLE , EVEN THOUGH THE NUMBER OF AWARE PEOPLE IS INCREASING. Hopefully, a sufficient remnant of these aware people will survive such earth changes.
This is just my opinion, I could be right...
