Book Review: Brave New World

  I'm usually not one for fictional books because they always seem so elementary to me, especially when juxtaposed with the plethora of riveting nonfiction books available in this day and age generally anywhere. That's not to say they don't have their place, but I'm not a fan of them. I'd much rather have a nonfiction book with information that is new (to me, anyways). With that being said, I picked this book up with the knowledge that it was an allegorical & classic novel; it's subtle message hinting at society, science and life at large (or whatever you interpret it to be). Moreover, it seems to be a common name for those interested in society & history. I gave in somewhat reluctantly and somewhat curiously, and read Mr Huxley's novel.

How We Are Imprisoned Today (A Poem)


  The following is a poem written Mike Adams of NaturalNews, entitled "To Imprison Us All."

"To imprison our memories, they gave us revisionist history.

To imprison our present-day minds, they made us drink fluoride.

To imprison our biology, they gave us prescription medications.

To imprison our ideas, they created intellectual property laws.

To imprison our legal identities, they created social security numbers.

To imprison our children, they gave us vaccines.

To imprison our mental health, they gave us psychiatry.

To imprison our agriculture, they created genetically modified seeds.

To imprison our soils, they created chemical pesticides.

To imprison our sense of self worth, they created fashion and cosmetics.

To imprison our speech, they created SOPA.

To imprison our persons and effects, they created the TSA.

To imprison our protests, they created the NDAA.

To imprison our productivity, they created the IRS.

To imprison our money supply, they created the Federal Reserve.

To imprison our financial future, they created endless debt.

To imprison our consumption habits, they created television advertising.

To imprison our perspective, they created television news.

To imprison our medical professionals, they created medical schools.

To imprison scientific truth, they created science journals.

To imprison our teenage boys, they created violent video games.

To imprison our teenage girls, they created Gardasil.

To imprison our online interactions, they created search engine profiling and tracking technology.

To imprison our sex, they created sexual dysfunction diseases.

To imprison our foods and farms, they created the Health Department.

And then,

To secure the prisons against resistance, they passed gun restriction laws.

To quell dissent, they taught the masses to be dehumanized and dumbed-down.

To solidy their arrogance over the masses, they erected a scientific dictatorship.

To ensure blind obedience, they positioned government as savior.


While the prisons were numerous and carefully constructed,

No matter how hard they tried,

They could not imprison our souls.

And once we recognized the prisons,

And identified those responsible for building them,

We rose up against them,

Setting free our minds,

Our bodies

Our children

Our productivity

Our liberties

And our futures.

We are Americans. To imprison us all...

Is inconceivable."
