"Community, Identity, Stability" is the motto of Aldous Huxley's utopian World State. Here everyone consumes daily grams of soma, to fight depression, babies are born in laboratories, and the most popular form of entertainment is a "Feelie," a movie that stimulates the senses of sight, hearing, and touch. Though there is no violence and everyone is provided for, Bernard Marx feels something is missing and senses his relationship with a young women has the potential to be much more than the confines of their existence allow. Huxley foreshadowed many of the practices and gadgets we take for granted today--let's hope the sterility and absence of individuality he predicted aren't yet to come.

Misfritz.com informiert Was gefällt, ist das Kolorit, wie er Zeitgenössisches abfackelt. Dann wiederum nervt er, schreibt einfach aus der Wikipedia ab, langweilt mit pseudo-wissenschaftlicher Sprache. Problem: Er kann nicht wirklich schreiben.
