No, I haven’t read Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World, but looking at this comic (Stuart McMillen’s illustration of the Neil Postman’s foreword of “Amusing Ourselves to Death: Public Discourse in the Age of Show Business”), his book was a prophetic message of today’s world.
Actually I wanted to buy another upsized EVM from McDonald’s today to get the Coke glass, but after reading this, I decided otherwise. I fear that I have succumbed to today’s trivial culture.
