Aldous Huxley, author of the classic Brave New World, laid out his grim vision for the future of the human race 58 years ago in a television interview with Mike Wallace.

In the interview, Wallace introduces Huxley, as

“A man haunted by a vision of hell on earth. A searing social critic, mr. Huxley 27 years ago wrote brave new world, a novel that predicted that someday the entire world would live under a frightful dictatorship. Today mr. Huxley says that his fictional world of horror is probably just around the corner for all of us.”

Huxley’s message is more important than ever because it serves as a reminder that a critically thinking individual is a formidable weapon against tyrannical forces.

The extracts below are some of the predictions taken from this interview. The full article on intellihub.com is here:

1.) Technology, Bureaucracy and Television Would be Used to Enslave Us

Huxley: as technology becomes more and more complicated, it becomes necessary to have more and more elaborate organizations, more hierarchical organizations… it’s now possible to make organizations on a larger scale than it was ever possible before, and so that you have more and more people living their lives out as subordinates in these hierarchical systems controlled by bureaucracy, either the bureaucracies of big businesses or the bureaucracies of big government.

Wallace: …do you mean that we develop our television but we don’t know how to use it correctly, is that the point that you’re making?huxley: well, at the present the television, i think, is being used quite harmlessly; it’s being used, i think, i would feel, it’s being used too much to distract everybody all the time. But, i mean, imagine which must be the situation in all communist countries where the television, where it exists, is always saying the same things the whole time… drumming in of a single idea, all the time. It’s obviously an immensely powerful instrument.

2.) Advertising Will Bypass Rationality and Capture the Minds of Children

Huxley: …this whole question of children, i think, is a terribly important one because children are quite clearly much more suggestible than the average grownup; and again, suppose that, er…that for one reason or another all the propaganda was in the hands of one or very few agencies, you would have an extraordinarily powerful force playing on these children, who after all are going to grow up and be adults quite soon.

3.) The Rise of Dictatorship Based on Terrorism

Huxley: …take another book prophesying the future, which was a very remarkable book, george orwell’s “1984.”Well, this book was written at the height of the stalinist regime, and just after the hitler regime, and there he foresaw a dictatorship using entirely the methods of terror, the methods of physical violence. Now, i think what is going to happen in the future is that dictators will find, as the old saying goes, that you can do everything with bayonets except sit on them!

4.) The Pharmacological Revolution Will Make Us Love Slavery

Huxley: …this is the… the pharmacological revolution which is taking place, that we have now powerful mind-changing drugs which physiologically speaking are almost costless. I mean they are not like opium or like coca…cocaine, which do change the state of mind but leave terrible results physiologically and morally.…if you want to preserve your power indefinitely, you have to get the consent of the ruled, and this they will do partly by drugs as i foresaw in “brave new world,” partly by these new techniques of propaganda.they will do it by bypassing the sort of rational side of man and appealing to his subconscious and his deeper emotions, and his physiology even, and so, making him actually love his slavery.i mean, i think, this is the danger that actually people may be, in some ways, happy under the new regime, but that they will be happy in situations where they oughtn’t to be happy.…we know, there is enough evidence now for us to be able, on the basis of this evidence and using certain amount of creative imagination, to foresee the kind of uses which could be made by people of bad will with these things and to attempt to forestall this…

5.) Political Candidates Would Become Merchandise Marketed by Professionals

Wallace: you write in enemies of freedom, you write specifically about the united states. You say this, writing about american political campaigns you say, “all that is needed is money and a candidate who can be coached to look sincere; political principles and plans for specific action have come to lose most of their importance. The personality of the candidate, the way he is projected by the advertising experts, are the things that really matter.”Huxley: …this idea that the candidates had to be merchandised as though they were soap and toothpaste and that you had to depend entirely on the personality…

Wallace: and we’ll be persuaded to vote for a candidate that we do not know that we are being persuaded to vote for.

Huxley: exactly, i mean this is the rather alarming picture that you’re being persuaded below the level of choice and reason.

6. ) Evil People Will Take Advantage of Technology and Government to Gain Power

Wallace: …why is it that the wrong people will use these various devices [television, atomic energy] and for the wrong motives?

Huxley: well, i think one of the reasons is that these are all instruments for obtaining power, and obviously the passion for power is one of the most moving passions that exists in man; and after all, all democracies are based on the proposition that power is very dangerous and that it is extremely important not to let any one man or any one small group have too much power for too long a time.after all what are the british and american constitution except devices for limiting power, and all these new devices are extremely efficient instruments for the imposition of power by small groups over larger masses.

Final Thoughts

  1. “UNIVERSAL HEALTH CARE,” ANYONE? DEEP SLEEP?
    Wikipedia CIA mentions the career of Aldous’s late son Matthew. He worked for the National Institute of Mental Health in USA.

    “Matthew Huxley (19 April 1920 – 10 February 2005) was an epidemiologist and anthropologist, as well as an educator and author. His work ranged from promoting universal health care to establishing standards of care for nursing home patients and the mentally ill to investigating the question of what is a socially sanctionable drug.”

    Compare Dr Dax at the front of our Port Arthur book.

  2. 58 years ago. Works out at about late 60’s, early 70’s a few years when or after Dr. Day’s adress to his paeodtrician colleagues in March 1969.
    See ‘NWO exposed by insider’ 1969, Dr, Dunegan”s recollections recorded 1988 to about 1991.
    Our msm and politicians have planned their fascism enslavement of us for decades. TRAITORS!
    Huxley was on the ball.

    • Ned, your math is not quite as excellent as you spelling. If the show was 58 years ago, it was in 1958.

      I agree that what Huxley is warning about here is in the same league as what Dr Day said in 1969. But Dr Day used a private audience of doctors and claimed to be giving them the scoop on things that would simply “come about”.

      Huxley pretends to be aghast at this stuff yet he was creating it. Undoubtedly Huxley was totured as a chld and “didn’t know any better.” I mean I think he actually was under a spell.

        • Ned, I see Aldous was at Balliol College. i think Dee siad that was a setting for the Milner Kindy. Probably Robin Brown’s book does not go back far enough.

          The Rhodes scholars were meant to bring English and German boys into the network. But the Russell Trust at Yale was also doing that, hence Skull and Bones. We’re looking at 1830s for Bones I think.

          Can’t stop to research it as am working on the essay that you have goaded me into re the Crow situation.

        • I guess there are so many secret societies… (Centuries back) with details that haven’t come out. They would morph with the times… and as new blood get drawn into the gangs… Rhodes just didn’t want to be left out.

      • As for ‘come about’, they had previously been planned ‘to come about’, that needed prior planning,……. go back to 1954.
        As for the theory about an alleged ‘spell’, try an informed knowlege as an alternative speculation.

        • No, no, Ned, these poor babies never had a chance.. Ask Fiona. Ask Trish. They get you at birth. Wendy Hoffman says they get you before birth, they electro shock the fetus in utero.

          Everyone should read Wendy Hoffman’s “Enslaved Queen.”
          Oh I’m just SURE they will be selling it at Adelaide Writer’s Week, not.

          • Mary,
            Evidence for Huxley to be under a spell?
            Versus he be just informed/astute?
            If he was under a spell, does that distract from his assesment/predictions.

  3. […] …” Mr. Huxley 27 years ago wrote Brave New World, a novel that predicted that someday the entire world would live under a frightful dictatorship.

  4. I’ve been telling Dee that her articles are getting sharper all the time. I mean there is real intellectual progress going in at Gum, as we have uncovered this and that bit of data, and so feel freer to declare what we think is going on.

    The above admissions by Huxley are phenomenal. Just imagine Mike Wallace having the chutzpah to ask those qq and then take the pose that he and Huxley were somehow looking at the work of OTHERS when it was their own diabolic shite that was being discussed.

    I make the following humble request to readers. Please choose a fave phrase from Huxley (or Wallace) above and put it in this thread. Here’s my fave:

    “[People] will be happy in situations where they oughtn’t to be happy.”

    Kee-rist!

    • “Within the next generation I believe that the world’s leaders will discover that infant conditioning and narco-hypnosis are more efficient, as instruments of government, than clubs and prisons, and that the lust for power can be just as completely satisfied by suggesting people into loving their servitude as by flogging them and kicking them into obedience”
      Letter to George Orwell 21 October 1949

      Just like Orwell the guy was a font of both pertinent remarks and critical errors: Important to remember that guru-itis is also a form of slavery.

  5. It is difficult to know if Dr Day is correct on population control through cancer? other methods of killing people is to use air conditioning and ensuring maintenance is over looked and the use of Golden Staph can be useful for the same program and other procedures.
    I suggest the Hippies were seen as a threat to establishment? although part of their philosophy was suspect other parts were a problem such as support to end war such as Vietnam, here we see the CIA, infiltrating those who are suspect as being individuals who were threatening to the establishment, the CIA operating MKULTRA from the Tavistock, also financed in part by Rockefeller in the late 1940s, for mind control, whether Laing was complicit as he was head of this institute in the late 1950s, I am uncertain certainly the cronies protected Laing in the 1960s, and no voices I heard would dare to question the Messiah? also his experiment in Kingsley Hall? seemed to fade as did any memory of Laing and his support group dissipated, incidentally we can also see Rockefeller within the institute that Day was connected with.
    In the video of Aldous Huxley it was refreshing that he seemed to be a speaker who is relevant today within the political context, ha also having experienced drugs such as LSD, the conditions of LSD he would have taken this drug would have been in a different context to the CIA involvement of LSD and also the covert operation of whether the CIA used cocktails.
    Today instead of Huxley’s interpretation of capitalism and communism we have capitalism and terrorism, although terrorism is largely run today by the capitalist system, this requirement serves in a number of ways to divert public attention to a largely criminal establishment can exist and thrive with a constant erosion of the individuals rights and diminished power and the uncertainty of ones identity is? such symbols of the search for identity is tattoos and slogans to give the beholder a identity and the compensation of no longer having any sense as to who one self is? as a contrast to the elite who having a quest of increasing their wealth and power and the bestowing of power to there own and to destroy the health and quality of life to the mass of the planets inhabitants.

    • Don, you’ve got me thinking back to my university days when it all seemed so fitting that RD Laing knocked “authority” off its pedestal. He proclaimed that the mentally ill were really the straight ones and the conservative types were neurotics – or at least that’s the way it sounded to me (to you, too?)

      Knocking authority was a biggie. The Second Vatican Council in the 1960s kept coming out with new ways to take the uppityness out of the Church.

      But now, having read about the cabal, I would suspect that those two approaches were part of the Huxley-type plan to make us lose our moorings. No more church authority, no more standards of normalcy.

      (There are grade schools in Oz where 8-year-olds call the teacher by her first name, I kid you not.)

      I see what you mean about tattoos – an important way to belong – for many. I saw a girl yesterday in Adelaide who sure was covered with them (though maybe only decals?)

      Don, of course the cabal would protect Laing. But more than that they could have set him up to do his thing, just as they let Dax do his art-therapy thing. From Dax’s obituary:

      “Eric Cunningham Dax graduated from London University in 1932 with honours in medicine. …. The 1930 British Mental Treatment Act made provision for voluntary treatment and significantly encouraged community-based, psychiatric treatments…
      “In 1941, Dax was appointed Superintendent of Netherne Hospital in Surrey…. He set about revolutionising the approach to mental illness through the active endorsement of new treatments as cures, and treating the patients humanely rather than as incarcerated criminals.”

      Of course it also made many mentally ill people homeless.

  6. Ran out of space below, Ned. I didn’t mean Huxley was under a spell as such. But he must have received amazing training that would limit his thought processes later. I feel sure that Kim Beazley, Jr must also have a restricted mind (because of what his Dad did). Listen to Cisco Wheeler and Fritz Springmier, only a tiny bit of article: [go to whale.to for more]

    “The proper training of a person for this role would be long and tedious, but once he was trained, you would have a super spy compared to which any creation in a mystery story is just plain weak. This is what the Illuminati have done. They create good Christian fronts, with Illuminati dark alters who can see what the Christians are doing.

    “My super spy plays his role as a communist in his waking state, aggressively, consistently, fearlessly. But his PB is a loyal American….

    “Here is how this technique would work ….We choose a good subject and then let him in on the plot. We disclose to him that he is an excellent hypnotic subject and we wish to use him for counterespionage. We suspect that in the near future someone is going to try hypnosis on him. He is to bluff, to co-operate to the very best of his ability, fake every test that is made and stay wide awake all the time.

    “The test we fear most is that of an analgesia–insensitivity to pain. So we coach him carefully with posthypnotic suggestions to the effect that even when wide awake and bluffing he will be able to meet every test which may be made here, be it with ammonia under the nose, a needle, or worst of all, the use of electricity, which can be made extremely painful and is easy to use.

    “Under these circumstances it will be virtually impossible to tell whether this man is bluffing or really in trance.”
