The novel describes a single global religion of oneness that attempts to give the citizens of the scientific dictatorship a mystical experience of unity and spirituality.
In addition to “Community Sings,” there are smaller religious services called “Solidarity Services,” held every two weeks, which make use of the fictional drug “soma,” music, dancing, and sex (Chapter 5, Section 2) [6.1].
The intense, ritualistic experience is intended to achieve a mindless feeling of unity.
The unity the group tries to attain is personalized as a type of Savior, Messiah, or God.
Loud and pulsing synthetic music is applied to the room, music which affects the middle of the body directly. Along with a drumbeat and haunting melody, the lyrics of each hymn are repeated many times.
. . . The group was now complete, the solidarity circle perfect and without flaw. Man, woman, man, in a ring of endless alternation round the table. Twelve of them ready to be made one, waiting to come together, to be fused, to lose their twelve separate identities in a larger being. . . . [6.1]
Their drinking of the novel’s drug soma is almost like a mind-altering version of the Christian Communion ceremony.
However, in this case, each participant says, “I drink to my annihilation.”
One of the hymns they sing refers to this goal of annihilating the individual’s identity:
Come, Greater Being, Social Friend,
We long to die, for when we end,
Our larger life has but begun. [6.1]
The drug induces a feeling (not the reality) of universal benevolence. This orgy of drugs, frenzied slogans, and sex is a collectivist ritual that elevates the group “mind”–the non-thinking hive mind–while diminishing or switching off the individual mind.
The thinking ability of the participants is turned off and religion becomes all about an “experience” of unity that Bernard Marx, for example, struggles to achieve.
Huxley’s portrayal of his religion is realistic, because there is a predictable hypocrisy with at least some of the participants, at least with Bernard Marx, where he pretends to have a spiritual experience. I can’t blame him, because the context is authoritarian, considering that one of the others is sternly warned about being late [6.1]. Possibly it isn’t only Bernard Marx who has doubts.
Pretending not to have doubts while putting on a smiling face sounds very familiar to me and probably to many other people who have been mind-bombed by religions and cults of various kinds in addition to NLP techniques [6.2], positive thinking seminars, or fun, play-like-a-child, team-building sessions in the corporate workplace.
Bernard Marx is disappointed by the woman he has to be with even after consuming the drug:
“It’ll be a failure again,” he said to himself. “I know it will.” But he went on doing his best to beam. [6.1]
Then there is an incredible voice from on high speaking to them electronically so that they feel a warmth in their bodies and tears in their eyes. The voice announces that they should listen for the footsteps of the “Greater Being,” who is supposed to be coming:
The feet of the Greater Being are on the stairs.
Then each of them starts testifying to this supposed experience, many of the women jumping up first to make their pronouncements.
Feeling that it was time for him to do something, Bernard also jumped up and shouted: “I hear him; He’s coming.” But it wasn’t true. He heard nothing and, for him, nobody was coming. Nobody-in spite of the music, in spite of the mounting excitement. But he waved his arms, he shouted with the best of them; and when the others began to jig and stamp and shuffle, he also jigged and shuffled. . . .
Notice how the type of dancing is described as jigging and shuffling. Also, does the following dance seem familiar?
Round they went, a circular procession of dancers, each with hands on the hips of the dancer preceding, round and round, shouting in unison, stamping to the rhythm of the music with their feet, beating it, beating it out with hands on the buttocks in front; . . .
Then they go further and start singing:
Orgy-porgy, Ford and fun,
Kiss the girls and make them One.
Boys at 0ne with girls at peace;
Orgy-porgy gives release.
The dancing gradually stops and becomes an orgy.
The result for Bernard Marx:
He was as miserably isolated now as he had been when the service began-more isolated by reason of his unreplenished emptiness, his dead satiety. Separate and unatoned, while the others were being fused into the Greater Being; alone even in Morgana’s embrace . . . [6.1]
So there are quite a few questions we can look into about how these aspects of the novel might be taking effect, or have already taken effect, in the real world since the novel was published in the 1930s:
- Goal of one world religion
- Goal of diminishing the individual’s identity and submitting each person to the collective will and identity
- Switching off rational thought
- Use of small groups for societal direction
- Ritual use of drugs, part of the larger topic of drugs in the novel
- Ritual use of sex, and the novel’s larger topic of the promotion of sexualization at an early age, sexual promiscuity, the use of pornography to tranquilize and neutralize opposition, to encourage non-reproductive sexual practices, and to undermine male-female relationships and the family structure–and this relates to the larger topic of distracting entertainment in the novel (amusement parks, elevation of sports, “feelies”)–which relates to the creation of a caste system of degraded lower classes
- Modern music, dumbed down or weaponized in other ways, as with education and the monopolization/suppression of real knowledge. The effect of music or possibly special technologies, if any, on the mind, on emotions, and possibly on the body [6.3]
- Modern, dumbed down dancing. Changes in clothing standards and possibly other methods of degradation could be explored that may not be explicitly mentioned in the novel
- Hypnotic techniques generally (bigger topic). Also see [6.2].
- The Charismatic movement, New Age ideas (which Huxley promoted), mysticism, the occult, and the idea of religion being all about sensations and experiences. This is on one “side” presumably, but on the other “side”, there is also the devious use of religion to create a false, pseudo-conservative opposition to Brave New World policies (e.g., abortion) that ends up being mainly about building support for the oligarchy’s destructive wars and high-tech war-related industries–along with apocalyptic messages, prophetic speculation and biased foreign policy [6.4]. I believe that Zbigniew Brzezinski refers to the creation of this type of compromised, government-contract-dependent, “conservative” movement in Between Two Ages [6.5]. If the wars are about monopoly control over resources, destroying traditional cultures, spreading cocaine and opium far and wide, and if they’re all about creating fear and terror, and causing trauma to civilians and soldiers and leaving them homeless, and separating soldiers from their families and turning women into soldiers instead of being mothers, then the wars are for the purpose of creating a globalized, Brave New World dictatorship–and there is nothing “conservative” about them.

In Part 6, I described the religious ceremonies in Aldous Huxley’s novel.
Social engineering in the field of religion or other areas relevant to Brave New World is a vast subject, so I plan to publish additional information, while switching between topics, on an ongoing basis.
I have been collecting examples to show that a ruling oligarchy, in addition to having expressed their clear intent, has taken real-world steps to implement the novel’s methods and doctrines of social control.
Showing that these methods have been carried out actually illustrates the existence of an oligarchy–a ruling elite that does what it wants without any democratic approval.
For example, as far as the reproductive topics in the novel, certainly real-life historical developments have included the birth control pill, in vitro fertilization (“test tube babies”) (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/In_vitro_fertilisation), and cloning (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cloning).
With respect to religion, examples would include the use of drugs combined with religion, the use of sex, the use of music, dancing and electronic technology. Also, examples would include modes of thought (or lack of thought, or mind control) such as the promotion of wishful or positive thinking (illustrated in Bernard Marx’s internal dialogue during the ceremony), and the suppression of the individual’s identity and will (very clearly described in the novel’s ceremony).
Also I am looking for connections between agencies of the oligarchy and religious movements and cults, or self-help, human potential, occult and esoteric concepts that are heavily promoted in books and other media. With an examination of Aldous Huxley’s life, some of these connections are found immediately.
“Agencies of the oligarchy” could refer to governments, corporations, banks, international institutions and public private partnerships. This term could also refer to media organizations in conjunction with government broadcast regulations which possibly facilitated some religious and cultural messages while suppressing others at different stages. Also, celebrities of different kinds (apparently backed by cults in some cases) are used in public relations for the advancement of agendas. I am also referring to academic elites (e.g. The Royal Society and Huxley family), universities and the organizations who fund their research. In addition, we need to look at the activities of foundations, NGOs, think-tanks, Agenda 21 / sustainable development groups, and “color revolution” activists. Government activities can also include the creation of many laws based on advocacy from private associations (such as the Huxley-created World Wildlife Fund), subsidies to arts and culture groups, subsidies to corporations and universities for specific technologies. Also included, of course, are military and intelligence agency activities and research (e.g., the CIA’s MKUltra program: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Project_MKUltra).
Brave New World and The Attack on the “Ego”
I wanted to express my thoughts about the suppression of the individual self. When listening to popular New Age-influenced radio programs, I have frequently heard the collectivist demonization of the ego, which I think refers to the individual, and what seems to be the advocacy of this state of mind as a worthy goal.
I don’t see the individual and concern for others (the family, group, or community) as opposite ideals that contradict each other. In nature, both of these are important to being human.
See the Wikipedia article on “Ego Death” (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ego_death), which includes information about Huxley’s interest in this concept, among others:
Ego death is a “complete loss of subjective self-identity.” The term is used in various intertwined contexts, with related meanings. . . .
. . .
In the death and rebirth mythology ego death is a phase of self-surrender and transition, as described by Joseph Campbell [7.1] in his research on the mythology of the Hero’s Journey. . . .
This doctrine seems to be tyrannical in its motivation because it would seem to lead to people going along by default with the day to day propaganda and pressures of an increasingly monopolized and centralized society instead of facing up to the greater evils directly and deciding, using independent thought, OF THEIR OWN ACCORD, what actions are really the best ones to take in their lives.
The “hero” as defined by who? The “hero” who switches off his conscience and just does what he (or she) is told for money, or obeys based on blind oaths of loyalty made when he was young and stupid, or obeys from fear of punishment or poverty, or obeys out of mindless indoctrination. How about that kind of “hero” or “knight”?
What kind of outrages do such mercenaries commit when they “surrender” themselves to a human authority? This is the world we live in. This is our day to day lives in which we admire power and “success” and ruthlessness, even if it’s just something we see in entertainment. It is truly a world of daily obedience. And yet, the elite want to make this kind of world one hundred percent in charge of everything, with God or personal conscience removed from the picture altogether.
Think about it. Obey what? Surrender to what? Give up what? Why? For who and what? Transition to what? For power and wealth, for its own sake? I can’t help questioning the motivations of mythological heroes such as Jason https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Golden_Fleece. Does he go too far? Does he cross moral boundaries? Are his motivations sound? Should his friends just go along with whatever he does?
What about right and wrong? Are you stealing someone’s property because you are “authorized” to, or because you are part of a hierarchy that just follows instructions? Are you going along with dubious food and water ingredients, and dubious drug prescriptions, because of economic pressures and because it’s your “job”? Are you bombing and killing because it’s your “job,” because you have a “license” to kill from some government, because they declared a “war” that was sold with some story presented in the media which someone else made up because it’s their “job”?
What kinds of heroes do we have? Maybe they’re brave, some of them, OK, but brave about doing the wrong thing? Maybe they get the job done, that’s a good trait, but doesn’t it matter whether their actions are just or unjust? Maybe these “heroes,” including the ones in movies, are more like machines, more like slaves. Maybe the “heroes” who have surrendered their egos are contributing to a society of utter corruption.
Christians are also affected by these teachings, and although traditional religion and scriptures have some of the same problems, I believe this development is another step further removed from traditional and rational moral rules that require self-control and empathy for others, and which also condemn cruelty, oppression and bloodshed.
See, for example, Matthew 7:12 (https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Matthew+7:12&version=KJV, Mark 12:31 (https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Mark+12%3A31&version=KJV), 2 Timothy 3:2-4 (https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=2+Timothy+3%3A2-4&version=KJV), Proverbs 11:17 (https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Proverbs+11:17&version=KJV), Proverbs 16:32 (https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Proverbs+16:32&version=KJV), Isaiah 59:7 (https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=isaiah+59%3A7&version=KJV), Jeremiah 22:17 (https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Jeremiah+22:17&version=KJV) [7.2].
Christians, New Agers and others should read through these verses and then explain why they do not oppose government policies of cruelty, death and looting, along with corporate attacks of degradation on normality and family via their “entertainment” industry.
On the so-called right, we have torture, wars of aggression and lies, propaganda stories that are full of contradictions and obvious lies, surveillance grids enhanced with advanced technology, and airport security (privacy invasion).
Judge these people by the results.
On the so-called left, we have mandatory “education” that now includes sexual “education” (also called “interference”), the suppression of freedom of conscience and speech through social engineering and legislation in many countries, the legalization and pushing of euthanasia (the new function of Canadian government-funded hospitals and doctors dressed up very cleverly as a “right”), the effective confiscation of resources in the name of bugs and trees (taking from private individual and family-controlled hands, or from local, publicly accountable hands), the monopolization of nature in the name of saving nature, the imposition of “carbon taxes” in the name of fake, “scientific” declarations about the climate “changing” because of harmless life-sustaining gases from human activity, even though the climate has always changed and the poor are the ones going to be hit the hardest.
Do you really think everyone, especially the elderly, are going to receive better medical care under a full-blown carbon tax regime? Do you really think they and many others are going to keep their homes? Are we still going to be able to afford cars? Are we still going to afford to have children? Do you really think we’ll be healthier and wealthier? We’ll be under the elite’s thumb more than ever.
And this “environmentalism” is actually from the same interests who run the mercenary-generated wars. These interests run the big foundations who fund the social engineering, the depopulation programs and “free trade” agreements. The same big corporations develop and actively promote the new, mind-altering drugs and “vaccines” and the new forms of chemical-laden genetically modified “food”.
Whether “left” or “right”, it is all about white-washing realities, it’s all about divide and conquer, it’s all about erasing boundaries and cultures, and it all comes from the same operation at the top. It all mixes together at the public level, because there is no logical consistency there, or with “left” and “right”.
At the top, it’s about paving the way for arbitrary power and criminality through disabling the minds (or souls, or spirits) of the people, which is what Brave New World is all about. Most people of all stripes seem to be going along with what is presented to them to one degree or another, because they exert almost no resistance to propaganda techniques and seem to have no doubts or suspicions about what they are living under. They’re trained to blame themselves for everything bad that happens (which is another delusional, mind control doctrine). Compounding all of this, they do nothing to protect their children from these influences.
. . . During his interviews with Bill Moyers [see http://powerandreality.com/analysis-letters-of-marshall-mcluhan-part-5-bad-boy-at-bilderberg/], Campbell discusses the way in which Lucas used The Hero’s Journey in the Star Wars films (IV, V, and VI) to re-invent the mythology for the contemporary viewer. Moyers and Lucas filmed an interview 12 years later in 1999 called the Mythology of Star Wars with George Lucas & Bill Moyers to further discuss the impact of Campbell’s work on Lucas’ films. . . .

Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets.
And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.
2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,
4 Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
The merciful man doeth good to his own soul: but he that is cruel troubleth his own flesh.
He that is slow to anger is better than the mighty; and he that ruleth his spirit than he that taketh a city.
Their feet run to evil, and they make haste to shed innocent blood: their thoughts are thoughts of iniquity; wasting and destruction are in their paths.
But thine eyes and thine heart are not but for thy covetousness, and for to shed innocent blood, and for oppression, and for violence, to do it.
Policy Themes of Brave New World Part 8: Religion, public relations, drugs, transhumanism, evolution doctrine implies inevitability of developments instead of their being the result of planning

Charles Galton Darwin: Religious Doctrines as a Policy Tool
In his book, The Next Million Years, Charles Galton Darwin, Fellow of the Royal Society, physicist, grandson of Charles Darwin, and close relative of the Huxley family, refers to the use of religious creeds–not sound facts and reasoning–as policy tools:
They serve to give a continuity to policy far greater than can usually be attained by intellectual conviction.[8.1]
Referring to the potential goal of creating a biological change in humanity (using the word “man” collectively), Darwin states:
. . . a creed gives the best practical hope that a policy will endure well beyond the life of its author, and so it gives the best practical hope that man can have for really controlling his future fate. [8.1]
So, the purpose of a religious belief in his view is to produce a result. It’s not about truth.
Transhumanist Religious Agenda: Huxley Family, Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, Terence McKenna
Celebrities are used to promote agendas and belief systems that lead society in particular directions. Celebrities are not just actors and musicians, but can include, for example, spokespersons for the scientific, literary and academic elite.
In the fields of religion, occultism and philosophy, many Esalen Institute speakers have been prominently featured in the media over the years. See the Wikipedia article on the Esalen Institute [8.2] for a list of such speakers. Also, some general information on the Esalen Institute is collected in my post On the Esalen Institute: deep change in self & society [8.3].
One example of an Esalen speaker is Terence McKenna, who was featured repeatedly on The Art Bell Show in the 1990s before he died in 2000. I enjoyed listening to McKenna because of his compelling manner of speaking about some amazing subjects, including his alleged encounters with “machine elves” while under the hallucinatory influence of DMT [8.4].
McKenna promoted hallucinogenic drugs as a type of religious experience [8.4], and also as a past driver in the evolution of human mental capacity (the “stoned ape” theory [8.4]). McKenna thought of the Internet as the “global mind” [8.4]. He also promoted “novelty theory,” “timewave zero,” and the “technological singularity”:
McKenna saw the universe, in relation to Novelty theory, as having a teleological attractor at the end of time, which increases interconnectedness and would eventually reach a singularity of infinite complexity. [8.4]
Cyber + Spiritual
All of this promotes the thinking that human society and technology just naturally develop in the particular directions we see around us because nature supposedly just works that way, and humans are therefore a product of nature and evolution along with everything we produce.
McKenna can be heard publicizing the idea that modern technology is a natural stage in evolution in some of the podcast episodes at psychedelicsalon.com, for example, the series entitled “Our Cyberspiritual Future” [8.5].
How can “cyber” and “spiritual” be combined? I don’t believe the technological and the spiritual should ever be confused, but this is an example of the use of religious terminology for the promotion of technology, combined with the idea of evolution.
Instead of the truth that our lives are being planned, directed and interfered with by human agencies (governments, foundations, corporations, think-tanks, etc.), we are supposed to believe that the technology around us–the technology that surveils us, distracts us and modifies us–is just popping out of the ground like some inevitable process of nature.
That concept, as dubious as it is, helps to sell us on the legitimacy of the technology–smart phones for example–and leads us to neglect to investigate its actual legitimacy in terms of its intended purpose, its moral implications, its health implications, also its production in terms of how workers are treated and how pollution is dealt with. If we perceive the technology as being part of an inevitable process of natural development, we don’t see the need to even question it, let alone refuse to participate in it.
The same applies to every historical and media event that occurs or is said to occur. Instead of trying to understand events for whatever they really are–possibly the results of deliberate planning, such as politically sanctioned crimes or even hoaxes–the public is encouraged to perceive such events as random happenings, or even as meaningful steps in a back and forth dialectic conflict, or as part of an inevitable social development as history just “progresses” due to “evolution.”
Even more than that, it’s possible that we are watching others–celebrities–take opposing sides and do all the questioning instead of us. For example, a celebrity, or an alternative media broadcaster or writer (even like me for example) may question genetic modification or test-tube babies, or climate change doctrine, or abortion, or the wars, so that the viewers or readers don’t feel the need to even open their mouths, never mind lift a finger. Someone else has said what they were thinking, so they’re content and placated to some degree, even though the technology, message or policy has not been stopped at all! I think this process goes on all the time, even if it’s unintentional. The question is how can we turn what seems to be a pacifying experience in alternative media into some type of more active opposition.
What was Terence McKenna all about? Who was he? Researcher Jan Irvin has pointed out an Esalen session audio recording in which McKenna admits to being “recruited” to an “organization”, and working in “deep background” and “public relations” [8.6]. If you want to believe a mystical interpretation of McKenna’s confession, you can do that, but you can also be more realistic about it.
Regardless of your interpretation, notice the connection between McKenna’s public relations activity (whoever it’s for) and the religious concepts he promotes. He spreads a kind of religion that makes use of drugs (as in Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World religious ceremonies), and that makes use of technology (also in the novel’s religious ceremonies–I’m thinking of the sound system). It is a religion that purports to tell us our future in terms of drugs, technological enhancement and some kind of mysterious mechanism of “evolution” that goes beyond the biological theory. That means it also purports to tell us our origins as intelligent beings in terms of drugs and evolution. So, this is clearly a religious belief system that this public relations professional wants us to adopt. Based on his statements, in my view, he was working for an organization that interferes with and manages the beliefs, attitudes and direction of society.
Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
In addition to being influenced by Aldous Huxley, Terence McKenna admired the scientist and Jesuit priest Pierre Teilhard de Chardin [8.7], whose ideas about the universe and human society evolving are similar to McKenna’s.
Teilhard de Chardin promoted the Omega Point Theory. According to Wikipedia:
Like Kurzweil, Teilhard predicts a period of rapid technological change that results in a merger of humanity and technology. He believes that this marks the birth of the noosphere [very similar to McKenna’s idea of the Internet being a “global mind”] and the emergence of the “spirit of the Earth,” but the Teilhardian Singularity comes later. [8.8]
Notice the religious terminology, including the fact that Teilhard de Chardin was a (heretical) Catholic priest.
In terms of sources of celebrity opposition, possibly false opposition to the Brave New World agenda, I remember first reading about Teilhard de Chardin in Malachi Martin’s book, Hostage to the Devil. Martin was also a Jesuit priest, featured on The Art Bell Show (just like McKenna!), and many of Martin’s positions resonated with me, including his opposition to abortion. However, in retrospect, he was a dubious [8.9] character with a dubious agenda, telling dubious stories. Martin helped to build up the false left-right paradigm so that even more propaganda victims, believing in an “end-times” apocalypse [8.10], can fall into their appropriate slotted categories as supporters of the fake “right-wing” of the power structure.
Julian Huxley, Fellow of the Royal Society and brother of Aldous Huxley [8.11], was one of the originators of transhumanism [8.12], a new version of eugenics and a humanist, technological substitute for religion and religious ideas such as immortality. Note that Huxley wrestles with how to proceed with eugenics in one of the essays in Man Stands Alone [8.13].
Despite his being referred to as an “agnostic atheist” [8.11], Julian Huxley also directly promoted the work of Teilhard de Chardin and his social evolutionary, mystical doctrines.
According to Wikipedia:
In the 1950s Huxley played a role in bringing to the English-speaking public the work of the French Jesuit-palaeontologist Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, . . . Both men believed in evolution, but differed in its interpretation as de Chardin was a Christian, whilst Huxley was an unbeliever. [8.11]
Notice how Huxley plays the public relations role of promoting a fellow social revolutionary to celebrity status, along with his religious and social ideas.
Since Huxley’s grandfather, T. H. Huxley, was instrumental in the promotion of Darwin’s theory of evolution [8.15], this is another overlap with the Huxley family as far as Teilhard de Chardin’s professional activities as a palaeontologist and geologist who promoted Darwin’s theory of evolution. According to the Wikipedia article on Teilhard de Chardin:
In June 1912 he formed part of the original digging team, with Arthur Smith Woodward and Charles Dawson at the Piltdown site, after the discovery of the first fragments of the (fraudulent) “Piltdown Man”, with some even suggesting he participated in the hoax [8.7].
(Research question: How long did the Piltdown missing link hoax information remain in school texts unchallenged?)
As with Terence McKenna, we should notice the public relations aspect in promoting certain scientific discoveries in the media such as the Piltdown missing link fraud. Is it objectively news? Or is there an organization very actively pushing the public to adopt the belief system of evolution (religious or not, scientific or not), a theory that purports to tell us our origins and our future, and about our place in the world–in the same way that religion does, except that our status and value as individual human beings and families becomes much less significant.
The extension of the concept of evolution into the social sphere by people like Julian Huxley is intended to lead us to believe that everything that happens in modern human society, such as the proliferation of laws (written by private interests called “lobbyists” like the World Wildlife Fund), the centralization of government, the creation and maintenance of global institutions (not even democratic ones), the debt-based fractional reserve monetary system and international banking institutions that lend to governments, the disguised and not-so-disguised population control policies, the creation of new technologies, various social revolutions of all kinds that attack family life–all of this is implied to be an inevitable result of nature and evolution (whether random or purposeful in some natural sense).
Are the old values of the sacredness of human life replaced with new values? Are scientific “experts” more valuable than we are? Are the fittest the ones who survive? Are the rich and powerful more valuable and important and better than people who have less? Are animals and bugs of equal value to humans? Are there “too many” of us, or too many of the “wrong sort”? Is technology, pharma, mass surveillance, interference with genetics, and global imperialism (rule by international banks, international organizations and the U.S. military) just a natural evolution of society? Has God been replaced by the State and corporate powers? Should we be sacrificing the lives and health of young people in every last war as long as the staging and marketing by the new sources of “truth” is believable? Is morality relative—in other words, can the powerful do whatever the hell they can get away with, and hoax whatever they want, as long as they have permission from their gang bosses? Is this “progress”?
There is a clear pattern that develops in Julian Huxley’s promotion of eugenics, which becomes transhumanism, along with attempts to control education, his heading of UNESCO, and his and his brother’s promotion of the concept of “overpopulation” and birth control [8.11], chemical birth control being sold as something unquestionably good.
On education, birth control and population, also see Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World Revisited [8.16]. Also, in Aldous Huxley’s novel, Brave New World, entertainment and so-called education is highly sexualized from early childhood onwards—to prevent family production and family life—for the purposes of control. The population is controlled directly through cloning and other reproductive technologies in addition to birth control.
Agenda 21, Climate Change and Other Abuse
Julian Huxley’s involvement in conservationism and the creation of the World Wildlife Fund [8.11] is consistent with an effort to monopolize resources. That is exactly what environmentalism is really about. It’s the ultimate feudal system. It’s for control over human society so that the international banks and corporations can manage the planet’s resources through the ultimate private-public partnership created through the United Nations. The Agenda 21 plan was published [8.17] in 1992 at the Rio Earth Summit. Yes, I have read it and am interpreting it based on what I have read. It is a plan to monitor and create an inventory of EVERYTHING. You can see (if you look) the “sustainability” organizations all around you that are implementing it [8.17].
Agenda 21 went hand in hand with a climate change treaty [8.17], which is another example of a policy being established by making it a religious doctrine. The most recent climate conference (when this was originally written) was in November, 2016 in Morocco [8.17].
It’s all about CONTROL over population and all human activity. The oligarchy is packaging the so-called scientific information about the “climate” in guilt-tripping mind-control psychology and religious terminology that sets up an earth-worship religion that supposedly puts nature above our interests and values (not the elite’s interests), thus demolishing whatever concepts of privacy rights, property rights and individual human value we have been lucky enough to gain throughout all these years of trying to escape abusive, feudal lords. “Abusive” is what I think of when I hear “climate change” threats of alleged catastrophe, carbon taxes and Brave New World policies such as the sexualization of children. It’s the same with the wars. We should consider the potential for abuse of all kinds.
For example, recently, a major high-level U.S. child trafficking scandal has broken in alternative media called PizzaGate [8.18]. The “mainstream” corporate media has suppressed this scandal and its implications.
Many masses of brainwashed propaganda victims out there think what they are presented with is true, but it’s just abuse. On the war side, 9/11 and all those other false flag events, and the stories about torture and detention, and much of the entertainment, it’s all lies and abuse by those in power. On the environmental side, it’s lies and abuse. It’s all about monopoly control of resources and totalitarian power. What do you think the wars are for? People are being used and abused.
Even zoologist Julian Huxley could not have agreed with the blame-human-carbon-emission climate change doctrine because he clearly expressed the view that there are natural cycles of climate change, observed back in his time, and still observed now, of occasionally very cold winters and animal die-offs, caused by regular changes in the sun’s activity, which is likely caused by the interaction of planetary orbits with the sun. See the relevant essay in Man Stands Alone [8.13]. The Sun and planetary interactions with the Sun over the millennia can lead to all sorts of variations with the Earth’s climate.
Climate change, originally called “global warming” was one of the Club of Rome’s stated excuses for uniting the planet by making humanity into an enemy of itself. See The First Global Revolution, page 115, which I’ve quoted here [8.19].
Climate change doctrine, as with “free trade” agreements, is about monopolists shutting down wealth-generating activities for the majority. It provides a reason for shutting down factories, the coal industry, and jobs, and for making peoples’ lives harder by applying carbon taxes to fuel and everything else they need to survive. Think of all the “anti-poverty” talk by governments being nullified by carbon taxes! But most people just think this is all about good intentions! I would refer you to PizzaGate (above) and many other terrible things, such as human experiments with mind control, syphilis and radiation!
The climate change religion is for control. That’s why the drugs are promoted by people like Aldous Huxley and McKenna. Control. That’s what they see as the purpose of religion–even if it’s Julian Huxley’s humanism or transhumanism. That’s also the purpose of what they call “science,” as Julian Huxley repeatedly states in another essay in Man Stands Alone. He states that science is for both knowledge and control [8.13].
The transhumanist story being sold about inevitable human societal evolution—backed by T. H. Huxley’s biological doctrine of evolution–temporarily but effectively reinforced by hoaxes such as Piltdown Man–and backed by science fiction such as Brave New World—and the science fiction of H. G. Wells, and much of the science fiction that has followed–is a way of trying to justify the imposition of a global, Brave New World-style technological dictatorship. This is my interpretation of the basic theme of The Net documentary by Lutz Dammbeck [8.20], which includes many of the same topics.
All of these celebrities (Huxley brothers, Teilhard de Chardin and McKenna) are the promoters of quasi-religious or quasi-scientific belief systems, whether or not they believe in a spiritual reality. In these examples, we are talking about the promotion of belief systems that relate to the “inevitable” CHANGING of society into a dictatorship–a “better”, more evolved world–without saying it explicitly—through bypassing and diminishing our critical faculties with religious creeds, drugs, technology and propaganda, and through promoting values that diminish our view of human life and the value of others’ lives, and our willingness and capacity to think rationally for ourselves and to make our own decisions.
The technique includes beating us over the head with guilt about how we allegedly misuse the earth’s resources and the effect we have on wildlife—with or without evidence, with or without any right to judge and interfere actually!—and we become the bad and ignorant people who need to pay more taxes to employ more bureaucrats and “scientists” and mercenaries to rule over us and “educate” us about how we don’t need families and freedom of speech and conscience and privacy rights and private property for ourselves, and how we don’t need to protect our cultures, and we don’t need to protect ourselves and family members from predators. Get it? There’s nothing to worry about. Cancer’s normal. Autism is normal. War is normal. The sexualization of children in the fashion industry is normal. You have the “right” to die now. And you’re just a “conspiracy theorist” if you think something’s wrong.
The non-human (the fictional portrayal of the earth to be worshipped) is raised above the human—which corresponds completely with bombing the hell out of innocent people all over the world, and terrorizing them endlessly with mercenaries—and no climate treaty is putting a stop to all of these atrocities–while elevating in our minds the importance of the public-private World State above God Himself. That’s what it’s all about. God has been replaced, and you are to accept your role as a commodity, as a slave of Man with a capital ‘M’, to be modified and groped and disposed of according to some special “values” which slavers and supremacist gangsters have always had for thousands of years.
The methods described in the novel Brave New World, include the use of religion, drugs, sexualization, entertainment, the dumbing down of intellectual capacity via a caste system based on cloning and the selective poisoning of embryos, technology, censorship, mind control, propaganda, slogan repetition, hypnosis, etc.
Religion is not seen by the oligarchs as relating to truth except to the extent that the technology and methods are tested to see if they work on our attitudes and behavior to produce effective results—namely control over everybody and everything.

He was the religious editor for National Review:
During that decade, Martin also served as religious editor for National Review from 1972 to 1978, when he was succeeded by Michael Novak. He was interviewed twice by William F. Buckley, Jr. for Firing Line on PBS. . . .

It is clear that National Review editor William F. Buckley was a CIA agent: see http://powerandreality.com/power-reality-journal-issue-3/.
His Roman Catholic version of apocalyptic warnings: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Malachi_Martin:
Martin said concerning the three secrets of the Virgin Mary as Queen of Heaven in Fátima in 1917, she mandated the Pope of 1960 to consecrate Russia to her Immaculate Heart. The Russian Orthodox Church would then convert to Roman Catholicism. If the mandate were not followed, devastating war in the world and destruction inside the church (The Great Apostasy) would follow.

In the relevant essay, “Mice and Men” (not “Climate and Human History”), zoologist Julian Huxley explains the cycles of animal die-offs in terms of the Sun and climate. For example, p. 172:
That important biological and meteorological effects are exerted by sun-spot cycles is rendered certain by corroborative evidence from other quarters.
For other information on solar cycles and historical variations in climate, see the main article (on Carbon Tax) in Issue 1 (including the “Additional Information” section: http://powerandreality.com/power-reality-journal-issue-1/
Science is for Control
In his essay “Eugenics and Society”, he repeatedly makes the same type of statements. For example (p. 68-71):
. . . Science is simultaneously both theory and practice, both knowledge and control. . . .
. . The experiment is both an attempt to gain knowledge and an effort to realize a wish, a desired control. . . .

Quoted by me: here http://powerandreality.com/quotations-1/ and here https://canadianliberty.com/?p=864:
The Common Enemy of Humanity is Man: In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like would fit the bill. In their totality and in their interactions these phenomena do constitute a common threat which demands the solidarity of all peoples. But in designating them as the enemy, we fall into the trap about which we have already warned, namely mistaking symptoms for causes. All these dangers are caused by human intervention and it is only through changed attitudes and behaviour that they can be overcome. The real enemy, then, is humanity itself.
