Fiction Recommendation: Brave New World


Neil Postman was right, and Huxley is more interesting. This book is very very good.

The idea Huxley presents is a totalitarian government who rules by maintaining their highest priority, to make everyone “happy.” They do this through genetic engineering, conditioning, sexual freedom, and diversion. The thing I think the book illustrates so well is how easy it is to see that American culture is slavishly dominated by triviality. It’s also easy to see how the troubles and difficulties of living as a Christian witness can attain a far greater joy. I would recommend the book.
