When one thinks of a revolution usually thinks of slaves revolting against dictators or masters.
On the contrary, Aldous Huxley, speaking at U.C. Berkeley in 1962, outlines his vision for the ‘ultimate revolution’, a scientific dictatorship where people will be conditioned to enjoy their servitude.
“There will be, in the next generation or so, a pharmacological method of making people love their servitude, and producing dictatorship without tears…they will be distracted from any desire to rebel by propaganda or brainwashing, or brainwashing enhanced by pharmacological methods. And this seems to be the final revolution.”
If that were to happen today, how would it be possible?
NIDA-funded researchers have conducted a successful in vitro demonstration of a prototype programmable medication skin patch.
As envisioned by developers Drs. Bruce Hinds and Audra Stinchcomb of the University of Kentucky, the smart patch will enable physicians to schedule transdermal medication doses that vary dynamically to match patients' fluctuating needs.
Doctors in the addiction field will tailor personalized nicotine replacement and other relapse prevention therapies—for example, to program dose increases when stress, metabolic cycles, or environmental exposures may increase cravings. Dr. Hinds, a chemist, and Dr. Stinchcomb, a research pharmacologist,
developed the innovation that makes the patch possible: a membrane
containing billions of carbon nanotubes, each 10,000 times thinner than a
Or: No, we've been in that world Huxley described since the time he described it.
He wasn't describing the future; he was articulating the present. It's gotten worse since then.
Right now more than half of Der Homeland is medicated with some consciousness altering drug, legal or illegal programmable medication skin patch.
Got a job, mortgage, credit card debt, car payment?
Own property? Got NetFlix? Got cable?
Got a Smart Phone tracking device?
They're way better than any medicated patch.
"The western world resembles Brave New World (and BNW Revisited) so closely, that the only explanation (for me) is that Huxley was hanging around with the designers"
Huxley was sharp enough to perceive what was happening around him and smart enough to envision where it might ultimately lead.
He wrote that story as a cautionary tale but words have power, and once you unleash an idea - regardless of your intent - your vision can be corrupted and taken advantage of.
It's not that BNW is prophetic...it is self-fulfilled prophecy, manifested by those who stood to gain the most by the creation and implementation of such a system.
Soma could be anything that distracts you from the truth which is all around you, though I believe that we are beginning to recognize the man behind the curtain for who and what he truly is.
As the world around us becomes smaller and more transparent, it will become increasingly difficult for those pulling the strings to hide the existence of those strings.
When (not if) we are finally able to collectively see the world through an open and honest lens, it will force us to reevaluate our priorities and the systems through which we govern and guide.
Aldous Huxley was indeed one of the elite designers of a New World.
His book is NOT a warning, it's a blueprint.
Investigate brother Julian Huxley and his deep connection to british eugenics. Aldous was describing and creating a "scientific dictatorship" that would allow the royal elites to control the common man on an unprecedented level.
If you listen to the "Ultimate Revolution" lecture and pay attention, his intentions are quite clear.
The ultimate revolution is when a man has total control over another man's perception, or mindbody as Huxley says.
When the State incorporates changes that will closely resemble Brave New World, the ultimate revolution will be close at hand.
"The older dictators fell because they could never supply their subjects with enough bread, enough circuses, enough miracles and mysteries.
Under a scientific dictatorship, education will really work.
With the result that most men and women will grow up to love their servitude and will never dream of revolution.
There seems to be no good reason why a thoroughly scientific dictatorship should ever be overthrown."
