How George Orwell Of 1984 Differs From Aldous Huxley's Vision

  • Orwell feared those who would deprive us of information. Huxley feared those who would give us so much that we would be reduced to passivity and egoism.
  • Orwell feared that the truth would be concealed from us. Huxley feared the truth would be drowned in a sea of irrelevance.
  • Orwell feared we would become a captive culture. Huxley feared we would become a trivial culture, preoccupied with some equivalent of the feelies, the orgy porgy, and the centrifugal bumblepuppy.
  •  In 1984, people are controlled by inflicting pain. In Brave New World, they are controlled by inflicting pleasure.
