Humans love distraction. Is this how democracy will be lost? Huxley may be more important than Orwell. "Brave New World " vs "1984"

Interesting book.

As an admirer of Orwell, I have always maintained that when it comes to politics, no book is as sacred as 1984, or Animal Farm. But for a short time now, I am being aware of the great book "Brave New World" by Huxley. As I have read the reviews of both books, and have grasped 1984, I am in no doubt that Huxley's book is more closer to reality than our beloved Orwells'. I will start reading it soon. But I like the terminology Orwell used in the book.

In either case, dependency on government, rather than ourselves, leads to a bad end for all of us.
