About a year ago, Glenn Beck asked a guest who has written a book about society, "Are we in 1984 or Brave New World?" The author replied that our society is definitely characteristic of some elements of Brave New World, Huxley's concern that technology has superceded humanity.
Certainly, the concerns about the subtle conditioning of certain media and the programming of people's thoughts through selected sound bytes, biased reporting, etc. parallel the New World's society. The interest in consumerism and ignoring of Nature, too, is a relevant concern, as well.
Finally, the efforts of the society of the New World to keep everyone "happy" raises the question of the push in contemporary times to keep everyone from being depressed with Prozac, Zoloft, and other related drugs. The "everybody belongs to everybody" is not too far from the casual sex of many young people, as well.
