What Orwell feared....what Huxley feared.

I've been meaning to post a link to Stuart McMillen's excellent Amusing Ourselves To Death, a brief illustrated breakdown of Orwell's ideas about the future vs. Huxley's (based on a book by Neil Postman). 1984 tends to get mentioned far more frequently in discussions of the future (or present), I think--but the vision in Brave New World looks mighty familiar.

Hrmm that was bizarre, my remark bought eaten. Anyway I needed to say that it¡¯s nice to know that someone else also mentioned this as I had trouble finding the same information elsewhere. This was the first place that told me the answer. Thanks.
