This book is about only getting your information from one source and being happy with the information they give as long as it sticks to your beliefs never looking out side the bubble of possibility, never stepping into the sea of doubt, being happy with claims that are being told as long as they never deviate from your ideals. "Soma is Christianity without the tears".

Book recommendation - Simulacra and Simulation by Jean Baudrillard He explains how post modern America became what it is. The rise of social media has destroyed our social nature The increased access to knowledge hides what is true 24-hour news creates no news The rise of the anti-racist has created more racism The rise of gender equality destroys the nature of gender and equality

Trump: Being more authoritarian and calling the media, the democratic measures of free press, the enemy of the people. Firing people who investigate him. And also making policies that widens income inequality such as tax cuts. PragerU: Critiquing authoritatian and the manipulation of human thought via dystopia novel. Also, stuffing soma in their videos. By the way, isn't one of the themes about caste and systemic inequality?

Had to read this for Assigned Summer Reading between my Freshman & Sophomore years of high school. It was this and The Once And Future King. I loved Arthurian Legend, so I decided to read Brave New World first to get it out of the way. End up reading it 4 or 5 times that summer and never touched T.H. White.

Another classic dystopian novel that was frightening accurate in its predictions; especially relevant for a population glued to their smartphones and obsessed with social media. Up until recently I would have said Huxley's vision was more accurate than Orwell's, now it appears we're drifting into a combination of BNW and 1984.

madwtube clearly you didn’t pick up the sarcasm in my comment. The current upper limit for abortion in New York is above the 24 weeks, meaning that human beings like myself born premature at 7months or my friend born at 6 (!!!!) are legally killed. It’s many 10 of millions of human lives terminated in the last 50 years only in the US. Of course, given the despicable morals of the Leftists, abortions is currently allowed up to birth with cases of babies still alive and left to die. Pro-abortion and the ‘right to kill a baby’ goes with the wider enabling approach to paedophilia and child trafficking that the Marxists condone and push for, like the vile Nazis that they are. There will be a time in History when the vile Leftists scum bags will be judged, right now they are the authoritarian vile establishment.

madwtube I literally said in my comment you can criticize what I said... I never denied that what you said was a criticism... I never said “PragerU, do this”, I just told them about a problem I personally had with their content, they can take that advice or leave it. I don’t understand how I am entitled for trying to help them make their content better, nicely, mind you. The fact that you’re criticizing me for criticizing them is also hypocritical. If you can call me a brat for critiquing them, then I can just as easy call you a brat for critiquing me. I’m very confused as to what your argument is as I was trying to help out. Channels love constructive criticism because it allows them to better themselves. I was not rude, nor entitled. I don’t even get how I could be entitled for asking nicely to consider thinking about changing something. It wasn’t a command, nor even a request. Just a suggestion. If as a country we are no longer allowed to voice opinions to HELP someone without being criticized, we truly have lost free speech on a human level. Please help me understand your problem with what I said, because so far it truly makes no sense, and to call some random guy on MNpost an entitled brat is okay how?

Kids that don't have on next to nothing and everything out in the open back during said PB's decedent teens and 20's in the 90's and 2000's.

Coming from a liberal so take that how you want, but I think this is much better idea. I can see Brave New World being grossly misinterpreted in so many ways. Yes, the book is about the cost of a Utopia, but that can be viewed through so many lens. Huxley was an atheist, who experimented with drugs, etc. before there was even really such a thing. I would also suggest not staying in one lane and get to know the other side. People today straw man the other side so much mainly because they don't have clue about other party's arguements. So read more non-fiction conservatives, but also be brave and try to understand your neighbor. The opposite side can alway make great points as well. We all have to stop living in the echo chamber.
