"..there is always soma, delicious soma, half a gramme for a half-holiday, a gramme for a week-end, two grammes for a trip to the gorgeous East, three for a dark eternity on the moon..."
"In the end John was forced to give in. Linda got her soma. Thenceforward she remained in her little room on the thirty-seventh floor of Bernard's apartment house, in bed, with the radio and television always on, and the patchouli tap just dripping, and the soma tablets within reach of her hand - there she remained; and yet wasn't there at all, was all the time away, infinitely far away, on holiday; on holiday in some other world, where the music of the radio was a labyrinth of sonorous colours, a sliding, palpitating labyrinth, that led (by what beautifully inevitable windings) to a bright centre of absolute conviction; where the dancing images of the television box were the performers in some indescribably delicious all-singing feely; where the dripping patchouli was more than scent - was the sun, was a million saxophones, was Popé making love, only much more so, incomparably more, and without end."

this goes hand in hand with MAKING people think they want to submit to this tyranny
You said well. Perfect.
I wonder how Huxley and Orwell could be so visionaries about the future. It seems PTB have prepared the battlefield to their advantage by passing totalitarian laws nowadays.
Perfect example of the Brave New World in action. The "arab spring" and this Kony crap are govt psy ops, all the way. You think you are gaining "knowledge at a speed undreamed of by our parents' generation". HA. You are being PROPAGANDIZED at a speed undreamed of by your parents' generation. Yet you THINK you are free and know what's going on. You are falling right into the honeypot.
