Aldous Huxley – The Ultimate Revolution 1962


Aldous Huxley – The Ultimate Revolution 1962

Aldous Huxley author of Brave New World speaking at U.C. Berkeley in 1962. in which he admits that dystopic novels “Brave New World” and “1984″ were not just fiction, but blueprints for two types of controlled and enslaved societies!

Huxley uses this speaking opportunity to outline his vision for the 'ultimate revolution', a scientific dictatorship where people will be conditioned to enjoy their servitude, and will pose little opposition to the 'ruling oligarchy', as he puts it. He also takes a moment to compare his book, "Brave New World," to George Orwell's "1984" and considers the technique in the latter too outdated for actual implementation.

"There will be, in the next generation or so, a pharmacological method of making people love their servitude, and producing dictatorship without tears, so to speak, producing a kind of painless concentration camp for entire societies, so that people will in fact have their liberties taken away from them, but will rather enjoy it, because 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." -- Aldous Huxley, Tavistock Group, California Medical School, 1961

“The prophetic Aldous Huxley, author of Brave New World, speaks to an audience at University of California, Berkeley, surrounding the use of terrorism and pharmaceuticals to create willing slaves out of the population.”

– Aldous Huxley

“And it seems to me perfectly in the cards that there will be within the next generation or so a pharmacological method of making people love their servitude, and producing ⦠a kind of painless concentration camp for entire societies, so that people will in fact have their liberties taken away from them but will rather enjoy it, because they will be distracted from any desire to rebel by propaganda, brainwashing, or brainwashing enhanced by pharmacological methods.”

I always love to listen to Aldous Huxley. I don't believe that Huxley wanted these drugs and other medical advances to be used to the enslavement of humanity. He says several times that it would be terrible if a dictator should acquire this power. Huxley says that these new drugs could make us desire things that we rationally ought not to desire, and that we could be made to feel 'happy' while living the most miserable existence. He is warning us, so that these new advances should not take us by surprise. He says that we should see where science is headed, and that we should use our imaginations to figure out how to avoid the worst applications, and thus spare ourselves misery. These discoveries should be used "for the benefit of human beings and not for their ultimate degradation."
