Doub Doub Doublespeak Ya'll

Amusing Ourselves to Death, a rad comic by Stuart Mcmillen

"Orwell warns that we will be overcome by an externally imposed oppression. But in Huxley's vision, no Big Brother is required to deprive people of their autonomy, maturity and history. As he saw it, people will come to love their oppression, to adore the technologies that undo their capacities to think.

- Neal Postman, "Amusing Ourselves to Death"
