A new animation from the PBS Blank On Blank series featuring an excerpt from a 1958 interview with the English novelist Aldous Huxley by Mike Wallace. To wit:
This is Aldous Huxley, a man haunted by a vision of hell on earth. Mr. Huxley wrote Brave New World, a novel that predicted that some day the entire world would live under a frightful dictatorship. Today Mr. Huxley says that his fictional world of horror is probably just around the corner for all of us. In this remarkable interview, Huxley foretells a future when telegenic presidential hopefuls use television to rise to power, technology takes over, drugs grab hold, and frightful dictatorships rule us all.
I came across this the other day. The official plot of this movie made me think it couldn’t possibly be a real movie. Then I watched the trailer… It’s like a Trump fever dream. Now I can’t wait to watch this piece of poo movie. A fictional depiction of a future wherein a globalist terrorist organization aligned with the United Nations to disable the United States’ power grid and institutes Martial Law. It will take a dedicated family of patriots armed with strong survival skills and the remains of the Second Amendment to save America and reclaim its freedom.
