I’m reading Postman (again!) for a different class, and I went back and read the Huxley (again, because I have just so much free time on my hands).
And I’m just going to dump this here, while I let some of these ideas about cultural symbols and democracy and changing norms and reality tv and fractionalization and narcissism and even maybe that crisis of selection roll around in my head:
I think it’s telling that Idiocracy (a movie, look at that) takes aim a Huxleyan future, and gained popularity without commercial support.
Maybe a little like Daggett?
Will ponder and return.
