Quote of the Day
“There will be, in the next generation or so, a pharmacological method of making people love their servitude, and producing dictatorship without tears, so to speak, producing a kind of painless concentration camp for entire societies, so that people will in fact have their liberties taken away from them, but will rather enjoy it, because they will be distracted from any desire to rebel by propaganda or brainwashing, or brainwashing enhanced by pharmacological methods. And this seems to be the final revolution.”
— Aldous Huxley, Berkeley, March 20, 1962.
Found atop "What Huxley Knew About Drones And When He Knew It," at Michelle Obama's Mirror, via Legal Insurrection.
