We discuss this quite often in my Senior Lit. class. The students themselves concluded that while we are not there yet, that America is definitely moving toward the world Huxley envisioned. Here is their reasoning.
Soma: Pot smoking is the highest its been since the early 80's and is on the increase whereas alcohol is on the decrease among young people. It seems more and more teens want to block out the hard stuff through self medication.
Sex: In our district kids as young as 6th and 7th grade are experimenting with sex. There is little doubt that premarital and extramarital sex is more accepted than just a decade ago, much less a generation ago.
Cloning: We all know about Dolly the sheep. And there is further experimentation along these lines for disease alleviation and such.
Government control: Spurred on by the fear of terrorism, and laziness, our government (more than ever under Obama) is slowly grabbing control of all aspects of our lives from mandatory seat belt and no smoking laws, to socialized medicine.
Those of you in my age group (born in the 60's). Could you even imagine we would be where we are at today?
