'brave new world' has the populace mood-alteringly drugged into apathy. sound familiar? also, in brave new world, there is a quote, 'if i was going to have a totalitarian system, i would disguise it as a democracy'. sound familiar?
Brave New World is next on my list.............

I not long ago listened to Brave New World in the form of an Audio Book.
As usual I now can't find the link to give you, but will keep trying.
While it was great to listen to, I found it a little scary as it parrallels,
to an extent what is going on today, and whats to come in the future.
