It's nice to have someone recognize its origin. I can't count the times I've been attacked as a "filthy Marxist" by knuckle-draggers here. I re-read the book recently and was struck by Huxley's prescience.
I don't know if I should laugh at that or go into the face palm.
I've read BNW twice. The first time was in high school and during those strange times of the 1990's cloning, virtual reality, conditioning and the velvet gloved despotism of the prozac/soma nation seemed far closer to reality than what Orwell had suggested. These days, however, I'm not as sure.
I think I'll re-read it pretty soon. It is truly a masterpiece.
