(Revised: January 3, 2014)
In Huxley’s novel, the majority of female embryos are sterilized (p. 10). The remaining women, such as one of the main characters, are trained to follow a habitual routine of taking chemical birth control. Moreover there are glamorized abortion centres (p. 108) just in case.
This is not much different from the world we live in today, with all of us trained from a young age to think there are “too many people” and that children are burdensome–thanks to the controlled economy and our belief in it and the money/debt system–and that any kind of birth control is a good thing without even considering how the toxins involved may affect our health and ability to reproduce.
We should be examining these assumptions and doing our own research. Not enough of us are questioning the idea that it’s a good thing we’re having so few children.
Mostly our faith in these ideas and products–and in abortion/baby-killing–the clever enemy ploy of making us think it’s a wonderful “right” and “freedom” to kill our own babies–is carried along by repetitive propaganda and conditioned response training using television dramas and sitcoms, and religious-secular dialectics involving ridicule and accusations of backwardness.
How different is this from the type of training and indoctrination used in Brave New World?
Conditioning After Birth
From infancy, in Brave New World, children are trained like animals using neo-Pavlovian conditioning, or stimulus-response in other words (p. 45). For example, lower-caste infants are trained to dislike flowers and books by using loud noises and electric shocks to scare them when they approach those things in the nursery (p. 16,17).
Hypnosis and Repetition
Another featured training technique is called “hynopaedia” and it involves thousands of repetitions of various recorded slogans during sleep. These slogans become ready-made thoughts and attitudes for each individual to carry through the rest of their life: including class/caste consciousness (meaning that each is trained to be biased towards their own caste), collectivism, and sex instruction. No choices are encouraged (p. 41).
Sexualization from early childhood
In Huxley’s novel, training of children in sex begins upon birth (p. 23)–long before puberty. Part of this includes adult-supervised and encouraged sex games (p. 27). This is one of the most shocking aspects of Brave New World. Literally there are scenes in which adult officials are walking around observing children play with each other sexually.
Isn’t this already happening? Isn’t sex education plus the entertainment media pushing this kind of interference and conditioning of children further and further?
Have moral sensibilities been reduced so far, and has the acceptance of “authority” and government policies and elevation of corporate media gone so far that most people won’t care or notice as this agenda proceeds? When will people realize that the “authorities” and elites don’t have good intentions? At some point, I think many people will start to wake up to all of this propaganda, but it would be better if it happened sooner.
Reality television and other forms of entertainment are being ratcheted up to new extremes (e.g. scenes of torture in heavily promoted video games), so it’s hard to tell if people will be capable of any kind of discernment in a few more years.
Regardless of what we think of earlier religious rules on sex–and I think probably we’re given a distorted picture and we lose track of the reasoning behind these rules–religions don’t seem to help clarify this question at all because they’re part of the power structure and they don’t generally encourage thought; regardless of what we think about the old rules, all of this is part of what Huxley meant by “sexual freedom” in the Foreword. Does it seem like “freedom” to you? “Freedom” for pedophiles.
As Huxley explained, the encouragement of “sexual freedom” or promiscuity is part of the totalitarian slave system he describes in his novel. My interpretation of this (part of the picture anyway) is that in a culture of promiscuity, people cease to bond, so they cease to create families. So there are no independent sources of support, comfort and loyalty any longer–and so they fall prey to direct dependence on and control by government.
Welcome to 2014! Is there anyone out there who doesn’t know what I’m talking about, who isn’t being affected by this right now? Am I judging anyone? No I’m not. I’m explaining. We’re being hit hard–chemically and culturally. It’s a form of warfare. And when the war is all over, if it goes their way, we have Brave New World and everyone’s going to “love” it–with the right medication, video games, pocket money, etc.
We have to find new ways to deal with life–or combinations of new or old ways that work for us–so that we survive and thrive independently. We need to stop going along with the propaganda being pumped into our heads. Everyone should find the answers for themselves. I’m just raising the questions.
Earlier we touched on the origin of sex education and the subject of UNESCO policies on sex education and how they are being pushed on governments and schools worldwide. As we know, one of the founders of UNESCO was Huxley’s brother Julian.
As should be obvious to anyone who observes what is happening culturally–but I guess not–sexualization of children is carried out as a public-private effort by elite bureaucrats and corporate change-agents. The infiltration of public school systems even seems to lag behind the complete saturation of almost every child’s mind by music television, TV shows, video games, movies, and the fashion industry. For an example of this public private partnership effort, see my post: Population Media Center and the open funding of population control brainwashing via entertainment worldwide.
