Default George Orwell vs. Aldous Huxley

BTW Huxley got his ideas for "Brave New World" from the Fabian Socialists.
And Hillary's "It Takes a Village" resembles it.

Huh. I did find one part very interesting, Jason.

There was something called liberalism. Parliament, if you know what that was, passed a law against it. The records survive. Speeches about liberty of the subject. Liberty to be inefficient and miserable. Freedom to be a round peg in a square hole.
Time to GBTW now though!
