Summary
  • Brave new world: Far in the future, the World Controllers have created the ideal society. Through clever use of genetic engineering, brainwashing and recreational sex and drugs all its members are happy consumers. Bernard Marx seems alone harbouring an ill-defined longing to break free
  • Brave new world revisited: The author examines the prophetic fantasy of his novel Brave new world and compares his predictions for the future with our actual world
