  • Amusing ourselves to Death Relevance lost in a sea of irrelevance
  • -Neil Postman, Amusing ourselves to death “What Orwell feared were those who would ban books. What Huxley feared was that there would be no reason to ban a book, for there would be no one who wanted to read one. Orwell feared those who would deprive us of information. Huxley feared those who would give us so much that we would be reduced to passivity and egoism. Orwell feared that the truth would be concealed from us. Huxley feared the truth would be drowned in a sea of irrelevance. Orwell feared we would become a captive culture. Huxley feared we would become a trivial culture, preoccupied with some equivalent of the feelies, the orgy porgy, and the centrifugal bumblepuppy. …..! In short, Orwell feared that what we hate will ruin us. Huxley feared that what we love will ruin us.! ! This book is about the possibility that Huxley, not Orwell, was right.”
