Brave New World

I have covered George Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-Four before, although perhaps not in a really deep way, but here I am going to go into another 'prophetic' work written on similar lines - Brave New World by Aldous Huxley. This book takes a very different stance, and is clearly based upon the creation of a 'World State'. The following statement by Huxley sums up his ideas -

"...If you want to preserve your power indefinitely you have to get the consent of the ruled, and this they will do partly by drugs...partly by new techniques of by-passing the rational side of man and appealing to his subconscious and his deeper emotions and his physiology...and so making him actually love his slavery...people may be in some way happy in the new regime."

Aldous Huxley in an interview.

Orwell saw this as a tyranny based upon the 'boot stamping on the human face, forever', whereas Huxley foresaw that the ultimate means was through the use of drugs which dumbed down the feelings of the people and through propaganda which by-passed the rational mind. I say 'ultimate means' because Huxley does say that before this state of affairs came about there was a more violent approach to this. Another difference is that whereas Orwell's propaganda and tyranny was there to keep the 'Party' members in order, Huxley's was aimed at the masses as a whole - everyone. 

Brave New World is far nearer today than is Nineteen Eighty-Four, although some of the remnants of the latter still form part of the structure of society - the 'Thought Police', the 'CCTV' surveillance, 'Newspeak', the crushing of opposition, even though perhaps not always in a violent manner, but nonetheless designed to strike terror (*) into anyone who 'bucks the system'. I will now show how Huxley's Brave New World has come about today. I feel that the best way is to break this down with 'bullets' -

(*) The definition of 'terror' is to strike fear into someone, so any act of making people fearful, like the 'Dawn Raid' and the use of 'The Mob' is by definition 'terrorism', or in this case 'State Terrorism'. 

  • The World State was based upon the idea that everyone should be 'happy', a state induced by drugs which caused the individual to feel 'high' at different levels through different doses - the drug Soma was compulsory for everyone. We can, of course, see this today in the use of psychotropic drugs which are freely distributed for 'depression' and other 'illnesses'. The thing to remember here is that there are levels of 'depression', some which are so bad as to need help, some that are diagnosed as such but are nowhere near this level of a problem. Younger and younger people are today being prescribed such drugs. The drug Soma is one that has no side effects at all, and this would be the aim of the scientists today, to produce such a drug. 'The World Controllers encouraged the systematic drugging of their own citizens for the benefit of the state.'
  • The society envisioned by Huxley was a multi-racial society, as seen from the use of certain names, as well as outright classifications of certain individuals. But it was not based upon 'equality', rather upon a strict caste-system; however, this was not a caste-system based upon the Natural Order (as in ancient Teutonic Society) but on one designed to fit the Consumer Economic Society that formed the basis of the World State. This caste system was in fact more or a class-system, a strict hierarchy where children were selectively bred in order to do certain work within the society, each class happy in what it was doing. It also parodied the idea of eugenics in that selective breeding was used to breed individuals (or rather groups of individuals) to fit the needs of the Consumer Society. 
  • When the Federal Reserve Board in the US started to allow the masses to use credit, it allowed many, many more people access to the 'pleasures' that they never had before - travel, holidays, cars, etc. This happened on a world-wide scale, and thus plunged the world into a crisis we see today because of the vastness of the mass-production which rapidly uses up the planet's resources.This, added to the 'world consumerism' where everyone has a vast variety of choice, say in the foods that are available, where the shelves are stacked with endless 'global foods' from every corner of the world. In reality these are the same old mass-produced junk-foods but based upon various different cultures around the world. This is the society envisaged by Huxley, a society where 'pleasure' was the only thing left to man - the pursuit of 'happiness'. 
  • In Huxley's society there are no families, children are produced artificially; before birth their make-up is changed by the use of chemicals, altered in order to create individuals of each 'caste'. Then, through infancy and childhood they are indoctrinated through 'sleep-conditioning', whereby they are subjected to the repetition of certain phrases that naturally, in sleep, are fed straight into the subconscious mind. They are, throughout life, then fed the drug Soma which keeps them in complete subjection through dumbing down any strong emotions. Sexual promiscuity was the very basis of this society, where 'everyone belongs to everyone else'. Hence the abolition of the family unit, the very basis of a natural society. 
  • Like our own society today, this society was based upon the use of 'non-stop attractions of the most fascinating nature' that distract the minds of the masses, especially the young people, because they become tomorrow's society. Technology has provided these 'non-stop attractions' as we can clearly see today, and I feel no need to detail this subject. One of the most powerful of these was through the film-world, where they had invented 'Feelies' which are movies having both sight and sound, but also feeling added to it. Modern 'Smart TVs', especially those with very large screens, appear to the viewer as if they were actually in the film. I have only looked at these in stores, but just looking at these large TVs puts we off because of the reality that they have. No wonder the masses actually believe much of the rubbish put out through propaganda. The mass-media and the internet are today very powerful tools; indeed the idea of 'everyone belongs to everyone else' is coming about through 'social media' which operates on a world-wide scale, thus making the masses feel part of a 'World State'. 
  • The 'god' of this society was Henry Ford, since he was the first to use the idea of mass-production; the term 'Our Ford' was used for mechanisation. At the other level 'Our Freud' was used for their psychological programming methods. The whole of this society was based upon mass-production and mass-consumerism - as is today's global society. 'We condition the masses to hate the country..but simultaneously we condition them to love all country sports. At the same time we see to it that all country sports shall entail the use of elaborate apparatus. So that they consume manufactured articles...' We do not have this in quite the same way, since it is urban sports that dominate, whilst rural sports are being slowly banned, or like hunting are being seen as 'wrong' in some way. Nevertheless, Huxley is spot-on with his idea that every sport and pleasure activity (which there are more and more of springing up) is based upon the use of expensive equipment and thus keeps the needs of the ever-producing Consumer Society going at the right pace. The 'gym' is a typical example where 'elaborate apparatus' is needed, as are the sports that are today prominent, including boxing, martial arts etc. which use more and more elaborate equipment. Typical is the simple leisure-pursuit of 'jogging' which should be a matter of putting on a set of loose clothing and then doing a run around the block. No, what are needed is a set of fashionable jogging clothes, a 'heart monitor' for god-know's what', expensive and fashionable jogging shoes etc. etc. Everything in Huxley's society was based upon produce-and consume, as we see clearly in today's society. 'The machine turns, turns and must keep on turning - for ever. Machines worked by sane men, obedient men, stable in contentment'. And this was compulsory - 'Every man woman and child compelled to consume so much a year, in the interests of industry.'
  • Solitude in any form was not allowed in the 'World State'; to be alone was something that the masses never thought of - 'Everyone belongs to everyone else'. Solitude allows thinking and this forms no part of such a society. There was also a 'Superintendent of Psychology' for anyone who did not conform, to see if there was anything 'abnormal' about them. Witness today how many times our enemies call us 'abnormal' or having some form of 'illness' if we do not conform to their idiotic ideas. And here is something we should take deep note of, for today there are more and more 'illnesses' being diagnosed, especially in the realm of the mind, and this leads to normal behaviour being classed as 'abnormal' just because it does not fit in with the society that we see being created around us. Just the idea of wanting to be alone sometimes, wanting solitude, is today seen as 'abnormal'. The individual was nothing in this World State, 'The Greater Being' was the only thing that mattered (shades of Hot Fuzz). 'Twelve-in-One, the incarnation of the Greater Being', this was one of the songs used to indoctrinate, for music was a great tool used for this purpose, community songs, and synthetic voice and music. 'We make them hate solitude, and we arrange their lives so that its almost impossible for them ever to have it.'
  • The core of this 'World State' was a society in which the masses were completely enslaved, but in being so they were never aware of this - they were 'happy slaves'. Unfortunately, this is the state of many of the broad masses today - they are in fact 'happy slaves'. 'I am free. Free to have the most wonderful time. Everybody's happy nowadays'. But this 'happiness' was drug-induced all of the time, and thus artificial in every way. 
  • Of course, although Huxley's society appears at first to go against the agenda for 'equality', this is only on the surface - 'In a properly organised society like ours, nobody has any opportunities for being noble or heroic'. Noble and heroic qualities have no part in this World State, the caste-system is there merely to further the eternal running of the Economic Consumer Society.

'The twentieth century could be seen as a race between two versions of man-made hell - the jackbooted state totalitarianism of Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-Four, and the hedonistic ersatz paradise of Brave New World, where absolutely everything is a consumer good and human beings are engineered to be happy.'

Margaret Atwood.

The thing is that this does not appear to be a 'race' between these two, since Huxley's 'World State' came about after the 'jackbooted state totalitarianism' period he outlined in the book. It would seem, from past history, that Huxley's 'World State' is the next stage of the Global Agenda. There is a change from the violent, oppressive regime of 'negative reinforcement' to that of one of 'positive reinforcement' in which the controlled actually feel that they are free, they feel they are doing what they want to do, not what they are forced to do - 'By a careful design, we control not the final behaviour but the inclination to behave - the motives, the desires, the wishes. The curious thing is that the question of freedom never arises.' With such powerful indoctrination from birth, and with the used of psychotropic drugs, the masses become 'consumers' in the Economic Consumer World State, and every facet of their lives is carefully controlled. The masses willingly accept total slavery simply because they do know what it is like to be free, they have no concept of freedom at all. 

It should be recalled that George Orwell did not have the 'World State' but a world of continual conflict; Huxley's 'World State' had become a reality and this conflict was in the past. We are thus, as yet, not in the actual era of the 'World State' which has not as yet come into being, except as an 'agenda', a 'blueprint'. The United Nations and all of its various offshoots is the basis for the World State, and its Agenda 21 and Agenda 2030 are the next stages of the creation of the World State. These agendas outlined at 'world summit conferences' outline what they term 'Sustainable Development' which is double-talk for their agenda of world control by using ecology, and the 'global crisis of climate-change' in order to create a Global Order which will tackle 'global problems'. These people are totally dishonest, and further their aims of total world control through deceit and lies. 

This seems to me the crux of the matter, for, in the Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion (*) we find this World State outlined as a clear agenda. At the end of this agenda the World State is seen to be ruled as some form of 'paradise-on-earth'. But are we truly to believe that such people, those who have fomented wars, conflict, revolutions, and mass-murders under their financed and backed totalitarian regimes, and endless misery due to their policies of total control, will suddenly morph into benevolent and decent rulers with a concern for people and all life upon this Earth? Their agenda is put into place through lies and deceit, of a complete disregard for all life on Earth, and solely for the total control of everything. 

(*) Whether this is a 'forgery' or not, or whether the agenda is that of the 'Freemasons' or the 'Illuminati' etc. really does not matter one bit. The essence of this has come about and the truth can be seen in the past history and the present state of the world. Those who are evil enough to put into place such an agenda will not suddenly turn into good rulers when this World State is finally set up.

Modern society is based upon the idea of produce-and-consume; this is the fusion of Capitalism (Money) and Marxist Socialism (The Social Consumer). The phrase 'communitarianism' has been banded about for a few years now, and expresses the next stage of the Global Agenda. This is the collectivism needed to create this World State. The other 'wing' of this has to be done through mind-control, and to do so the System Psychologists come into play, since there is a need to understand the mind in order to control it. Psychology is neutral, and can be used for good or bad purposes, but its use for mind-control is what we are here looking at. 

I read a book that was given to my late mother by a society based upon the family name; this book was about a distant relative (long departed) who was a psychologist who decided to use his 'talents' in the advertising industry. He was employed by one of the large chocolate companies, and his whole approach was to sell the masses what they really did not need nor want. This was done through advertising and through the 'visual appeal' of careful packaging. This is indeed the basis of today's consumer society - advertising. Consumer goods are 'presented' or 'packaged' to appeal to the broad masses; it is the visual appeal that sells consumer goods. But when we look closely we find the whole thing is based upon deception; take a packet of washing powder, for instance, which comes in a large box that is always half full. And chocolate bars, which grow smaller and smaller, often in a larger wrapping to make them look bigger. The price still goes up now and again, but it is not noticed. Petrol and diesel prices shoot up drastically, go down a bit for a while, and then shoot up to a higher level still. Due to the change from Imperial to Metric (due to the 'Common Market', now the EU) petrol and diesel are measured in litres, so when the price goes up 3p a litre this does not look much; in regard to the older gallons this is a hype of 15p a gallon. In years gone by there would have been an outcry by motorists over this - now no-one realises what has been done. Another type of deception used in this Consumer Economic Society. 

The 'World Wide Web' has accelerated the process of advertising since we are today bombarded with adverts from all sides; 'cookies' ensure that if we look at something we may want, decide not to get it, and are then presented with this again and again through whatever sites we look at online. It does not matter what sites you visit, up comes the same adverts for goods we looked at. Everything is now based upon our being the 'consumer' and there only to buy the goods made by the Global Corporations. How far we have fallen from the Spiritual Man of very ancient times! 

In neither Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-Four nor Huxley's Brave New World do we find any place for the Spirit of Man, everything is dumbed down to the material and physical world. And this is where we should all have an interest in what is going on, because only a Spiritual Movement can awaken those who are still loyal to the Spirit of Man. Whether Orwell and Huxley were 'prophets', or whether they had access to information that we are not supposed to have, I really do not know. Were these works a warning, or were they a subtle means of conditioning people for what was to come? Both of these works end on a negative note, as if their respective tyrannies will last for ever. But there is one man - a true philosopher and prophet - who long before these two recognised the pattern of events that was enfolding - Friedrich Nietzsche.

Nietzsche foresaw such a society in his 'Ultimate Man' who was the 'herd-animal', 'the mob' and who was a happy and contented slave, those of whom he termed 'slave-morality'. But he did not stop there, because he saw the 'Ultimate Man' as merely one form that future man could take. He saw mankind as breaking into two distinct forms - the Ultimate Man (The Slave) and the Overman (The free noble man). The Ultimate Man would be made up of the teeming millions, whereas the Overman would be the individual 'solitudes' or 'hermits' forced to break free of the yoke of collectivism by working alone. This whole scenario appears to be some form of challenge for mankind, a challenge whereby the best and most noble rise above the inert 'mob'. As we see in Huxley's work the 'masses' or 'the mob' are not merely a lower class or caste, but are made up of all castes or classes alike. All castes are created for the purpose of the World State, and all of them fit into the category of the 'Ultimate Man'. This is indeed how society is today, since the better off are merely more affluent and are able to 'consume' more goods. 

There are still challenges for the creators of the World State, since there is a need to make the 'developed' countries worse off, whilst making the 'underdeveloped' countries better off. History shows us how communism actually aided this agenda in that it took hold of the more peasant societies, where it forced the rural peasants into the large urban areas as 'workers' for the growing industrialisation. Millions of people were murdered in the process, particularly in Stalin's 'Soviet Union' and Mao's China, and we can see in China how there is a Communist Dictatorship ruling over a Capitalist Society, where the people can be seen very much in the light of Huxley's work. China is a typical produce-and-consume society, the blueprint for the World State. 

Nietzsche did not stick to the negative aspect of what he saw was happening, he declared to mankind an alternative, the creation of a better and more noble Man. But part of this, the first stage, was that the 'solitaries' would have to break free from this type of society in order to be able to pave the way for a time when these 'solitaries' would become a New Race of Man - the Overman. Man would have to overcome himself in order to rise above the limitations set upon us. The 'limitations' at this particular time are those that strive to force this 'World State' upon us; we should see this not as a tragedy but as a challenge. Miguel Serrano dubbed this 'The Lead Age', the most horrendous age of the Great Cycle; this is one way to look at it in order to see how low we have fallen. I also see this as the Age of Heroes, an era in which the Folk-Heroes arise above the mass of consumers, an age in which the 'solitaries' separate out from the collective. 

Afterthought - 

I have referred here to 'totalitarianism', the 'totalitarian state', etc. which infers the 'dictatorship' over a people. There are, however, vast differences between an individual whose dictatorial rule is necessary in order to save a people whose nation is in a state of total disorder, chaos, and is in the process of decay and death, and the 'totalitarianism' that seeks power for the sake of power, and complete control over everyone and everything for the sake of total control. The individual that truly rules on the strength of the 'Will of the Folk', in order to avert the destruction of the nation, and to bring that nation from the depths of despair and degeneracy to a healthy and natural nation once more is very different than the power-hungry 'controllers' in both Orwell's and Huxley's works. 

If the type of society envisioned here becomes a reality, its very foundations being based upon unworkable principles (**), it may well collapse into some form of tribalism. At present some form of tribalism would be the best way forward to those who value their freedom. But looking at the state of society here in England, and how far down the road to decay and destruction that we have gone, the arising of a 'strong man' would be inevitable. Since the coming of an 'avatar' is prophesied then this seems to strengthen this idea. 

Some Odinists have pointed out that this form of individual, strong leadership is 'un-Germanic' and was never known in ancient times. History proves this to be untrue, since we have the case of Arminius (Hermann) who was elected to lead a Teutonic Confederation of tribes against the Romans. After the defeat of the Roman Legions under Varus, these tribes rejected his leadership which proved to be a mistake in that the Romans gained further incursions into Germania because the Germanic Tribes were divided. Had they allowed Arminius to continue as the sole leader this would not have happened. And in the case of the Gaulish leader, Vercingetorix, this was proven further; he was elected as leader in the rebellion against Rome, united the Gaulish, Aquitanian, and Belgic Tribes, some through violently imposing his rule, and then became the sole war-leader. Such leaders were elected by the people, but they first stepped forward to show their leadership, they were not chosen before doing so. In times of war, and times when a tribe or nation's freedom is threatened, such a leader arises naturally and fulfils the role allotted to him by Wyrd.
