Brave New World: The Liberal Vision

Posted by Tony Listi on August 2, 2008

What would the world be like if liberals took over the world? What would happen if they really could have all the CHANGE they wanted? What would life be like if all their HOPE and dreams were fulfilled? What if communism actually “worked” the way it was supposed to? What if we could see Alexis de Tocqueville’s “soft despotism” first hand? What if science finally triumphed over religion? What if we finally freed ourselves from all the “quaint” traditional moral norms, especially regarding sex?

It would be the cold, mechanical, perverse existence of Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World. Have you read this book? If not, I urge you to watch it here. Everyone should read or watch it; only then may they realize the hell that liberalism wishes for us all. There is no better depiction of the liberal vision that conservatism opposes.

We must all watch it soon, for if we don’t, the sharp and grotesque satire of this story will slowly grow familiarly dull to us such that even this rich, powerful portrayal of our doom cannot reach our numbed souls.

    Great post.

    And the reason we need all of this change and hope that HE can bring us is because he is a narcissist. I found a great article explaining the characteristics of one. You can read it on my blog at:

    Why, yes…anyone who wishes for civil, social and economic equality surely is up to no good!

      Derrick (above) was trying to be sarcastic but in essense, hit the nail right on the head when he said, “anyone who wishes for civil, social and economic equality surely is up to no good!”

      I can’t think of anything worse than being forced to be equal. Equality is antithesis of free will. Man has been enslaved in the name of equality for ages, long before Obama, Saul Alinsky, Karl Marx, and so many other who pushed these same ideas…

      Some naively see Obama as the main threat but he is just the current figurehead for a much more evil, ancient ideology of “Collectivism”. Communsim, Socialism, and all the others are all branches of this tree.

    Hmmm, do I detect sarcasm?

    I guess you’re one of those numbed souls who idolizes a base and boring equality. I have no problem with equality before the law, equality of opportunity. But equality of condition and an equality of all philosophies and moral systems only lead to misery and impoverishment.

    Tell me, who will equalize the equalizers?

      Oh really? haha. Do explain how Brave New World is a “conservative” vision of utopia rather than a liberal vision. I need a good laugh.
