  • review: An excellent and astute observation from the mind that wrote Brave New World, the Revisited can be interpreted as a collection of essays on the reflection of that book's topics to the functioning in real world. It is quite sobering, and astounding, if not merely depressing - to realise that this book was written 60 years ago (from today) and yet the words are eerily accurate and applicable to the current times. Whether to call people like Huxley and Orwell is an understatement. The fact that we did not course-correct is more telling that whether they were accurate. Because we could have decided not to let them be accurate. And yet here we are two generations later, seeminly worse than ever.,
