Orwell vs. Huxley: Which Dystopia Will It Be‪?‬ The Boom Clap Podcast

    • Christianity

Orwell feared a world of external oppression, and Huxley a world of internal oppression. Orwell feared the things we hate would rule us, Huxley feared it would be the things we love.


In this episode, we dissect the 2 different visions of a dystopic future. We chat about the influences of each that we see in our current culture, & consider whether a utopia could ever be achieved using either of these methods.


What does it really take to hold people captive? Fear? Or ever-growing passivity?
