Aldous Huxley and George Orwell – Knowledgeable Visionaries or Coincidence?
Two names that come up regularly these days are Aldous Huxley and George Orwell and a phrase named after Orwell: ‘Orwellian’ or ‘Orwellian Vision’.
Both wrote books, that unerringly depicted a future world – a world that spookily mirrors our own world in 2020. Although Orwell was a few decades out with the cover title of 1984, you can forgive him for that, as he died in 1950. However both books are incredibly accurate in their depiction and prophesy of what we could expect to see at the end of the 20th, and beginning of the 21st century. Amazingly, the threshold of those visions are with us right now.
They may have been incredibly keen observers, and been able to predict the outcomes of what they observed in context with the general character of human nature. However that is unlikely, given the time span between the publishing of their books and the era we now live in. Most of the technologies they described would not even have been thought up at the time of their writing. On the other hand, they may both have had separate access to information that has been kept hidden from mankind. A knowledge of what was a planned agenda for the ‘end days’ for free humans.
Both were born into and educated within classes that might certainly have mingled with powerful and influential circles. Circles that were closely associated with a power behind the governments, and who had a plan for mastery of the earth. Circles that have guided the way that humans have been manipulated up to this day. I err on the side of the second theory. The saying “Know the outcome SEE the journey” could have great relevance in the way they so accurately wrote of the future.
Apart from the gullible and malleable ‘Sheeple’ on this earth, who do not question anything and believe everything they are fed, the more astute and critical thinking among us would immediately recognise that we are being guided by an evil nucleus of people that do the work of their masters, the Cabal’s henchmen. Gates, Musk, Sorros etc. etc. These are the ones often referred to as the 1%, then there’s a 1% of the 1% – the trillionaires, we don’t even know their names, what we DO know is that there is an elite 1% that own 50% of the world’s wealth – as I write this post. When you have more money than hundreds, possibly thousands of your future generations can squander, what is left to achieve? Power, control and rulership of course.
Aldous Leonard Huxley (26 July 1894 – 22 November 1963)
Was an English writer and philosopher. He wrote nearly fifty books — both novels and non-fiction works—as well as wide-ranging essays, narratives, and poems.
Born into the prominent Huxley family, he graduated from Balliol College, Oxford with an undergraduate degree in English literature. Early in his career, he published short stories and poetry and edited the literary magazine Oxford Poetry, before going on to publish travel writing, satire, and screenplays. He spent the latter part of his life in the United States, living in Los Angeles from 1937 until his death. By the end of his life, Huxley was widely acknowledged as one of the foremost intellectuals of his time.He was nominated for the Nobel Prize in Literature seven times and was elected Companion of Literature by the Royal Society of Literature in 1962.
Huxley was a humanist and pacifist. He grew interested in philosophical mysticism and universalism, addressing these subjects with works such as The Perennial Philosophy (1945)—which illustrates commonalities between Western and Eastern mysticism—and The Doors of Perception (1954). In his most famous novel Brave New World (1932) and his final novel Island (1962), he presented his vision of dystopia and utopia, respectively.
Eric Arthur Blair (25 June 1903 – 21 January 1950), better known by his pen name George Orwell.
Was another earlier English novelist and essayist, journalist and critic. His work is characterised by lucid prose, biting social criticism, opposition to totalitarianism, and outspoken support of democratic socialism.
As a writer, Orwell produced literary criticism and poetry, fiction and polemical journalism; and is best known for the allegorical novella Animal Farm (1945) and the dystopian novel Nineteen Eighty-Four (1949). His non-fiction works, including The Road to Wigan Pier (1937), documenting his experience of working-class life in the north of England, and Homage to Catalonia (1938), an account of his experiences soldiering for the Republican faction of the Spanish Civil War (1936–1939), are as critically respected as his essays on politics and literature, language and culture. In 2008, The Times ranked George Orwell second among “The 50 greatest British writers since 1945”.
Orwell’s work remains influential in popular culture and in political culture, and the adjective “Orwellian”—describing totalitarian and authoritarian social practices—is part of the English language, like many of his neologisms, such as “Big Brother”, “Thought Police”, “Two Minutes Hate”, “Room 101”, “memory hole”, “Newspeak”, “doublethink”, “proles”, “unperson”, and “thoughtcrime”.
Have You Personally Read Their Books?
Probably not, most of us would be familiar with their names and the titles of their books. Many have a scrappy knowledge of what’s in their books, but relatively few have read them, even less have digested and thought deeply about their contents, and then put that information in context with the world we are currently living in.
Let Me help You Out With These Two Videos
Below are two videos that quickly précis the contents of the two books in comic book illustration fashion. Whilst they do not show the full contents of the books, they give you a precise story line that’s contained in the books. Perhaps they’ll encourage you to read tyhe books in their entirety and let you telve a little deeper into the warnings they contain.
First ‘Nineteen Eighty Four’ by George Orwell:
And second ‘Brave New World’ by Aldous Huxley:
Sobering aren’t they? Now if you can’t see the incredible similarities of the contents, and the world we are currently living in, during this ‘Scaredemic’ and later, post the ‘Scaredemic’ – after the scaremongering and panic have done their job, as it herds us to a place we’ve never been before; or you think it’s coincidence or the mutterings of derogatory termed ‘conspiracy theorists’ then I fear you have been hypnotised into a world of slumber and eventual slavery.
