I''m not going to lie. That's terrifying.

The scary thing is that we're closer to either of those futures now than when they were written.

I dont understand. explain how too much pleasure will could lead to my downfall?

By having too much pleasure, the rest of your life (which is mostly non-pleasurable) becomes undesirable. Subjects like the economy, politics, and just generally thinking for yourself become too difficult. In addition, you become desensitized to the world around you, so as the rest of the world suffers, you blindly enjoy your orgy of passivity and entertainment.

The writing style was intended to reflect the society it documented, and the book came out in 1932, far before the sci-fi dystopian craze.

I read Nineteen Eight-four, and it was fucking great
the guy banged a girl he didn't want to

then he was tortured

I liked it.

It's not that huxley is right and orwell is wrong. It's that Brave New World's characteristics are more closely observed in free media countries (USA, UK) while 1984 represents what Nazi Germany and Stalinist Soviet Union were and what North Korea is now.

What isn't mentioned and I think is the most important principles of the two books is that choice is completely removed from the two worlds. Ignorance is strength. In 1984 the ministry of truth controls everything you know and knowing anything that disagrees with the ministry of truth is wrong. In Brave New World you are indoctrinated from Birth with all your beliefs and feelings so you inherently have no choice as to what you like or dislike.

For more legendary books on the subject of dystopia, see We by Yevgeny Zamyatin and A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess

I live in China.
I guess both depict everyday's life, here.

Two incredible novels. If you haven't read both, I highly recommend it.
#24 - mrknownothing (10/30/2012) [-]
Both books are good reads. The words "Orgy Porgy" still got a chuckle though

i'd rather die in a sea of sick hedonistic pleasure than be shot by a modern-day nazi stormtrooper.

Little confused. Is it saying that Orwell is wrong, because he seems to have hit the nail on the head for me
User avatar #5 to #4 - thegamegestapo (10/29/2012) [-]
It appears, after all, they both were

Yes i realize there is a problem, yes i realize that i may be able to do something about it, and yes I realize that others do not give a fuck about anything... but even if i could do something i don't even know what i would do.

Fuck neil postman, both men were right not just one.

People are preoccupied with meaningless (or nearly meaningless) fluff in the world produced by people that want to make money the easiest way possible. theres endless censorship and coverup of the things that matter (I also allow myself to be distracted too)

OMFG my last name is McMillen! I've basically never seen anyone with that name, and never spelled that way!

I loved the book 1984.

Picture completely unrelated.

I still liked 1984 better though. I found the writing style superior.

I didn't really like Brave New World. Maybe it was just because I was younger when we had to read it in school.

Ray Bradbury shows both aspect pretty well in his novels.
