-->I feel that the nightmare of Nineteen Eighty-Four is destined to modulate into the nightmare of a world having more resemblance to that which I imagined in Brave New World. The change will be brought about as a result of a felt need for increased efficiency. Meanwhile, of course, there may be a large-scale biological and atomic war --- in which case we shall have nightmares of other and scarcely imaginable kinds.

-->I -->Within the next generation I believe that the world's rulers will discover that infant conditioning and narco-hypnosis are more efficient, as instruments of government, than clubs and prisons, and that the lust for power can be just as completely satisfied by suggesting people into loving their servitude as by flogging and kicking them into obedience. In other words, I feel that the nightmare of Nineteen Eighty-Four is destined to modulate into the nightmare of a world having more resemblance to that which I imagined in Brave New World. The change will be brought about as a result of a felt need for increased efficiency. Meanwhile, of course, there may be a large-scale biological and atomic war --- in which case we shall have nightmares of other and scarcely imaginable kinds.

* After Creator/GeorgeOrwell published ''Literature/NineteenEightyFour'', he had his publishers send a copy of it to Aldous Huxley, the author of another significant dystopian novel, ''Literature/BraveNewWorld''. After Huxley read Nineteen Eighty-Four, he wrote a letter to Orwell to share his thoughts. The letter ends this way:
-->I feel that the nightmare of Nineteen Eighty-Four is destined to modulate into the nightmare of a world having more resemblance to that which I imagined in Brave New World. The change will be brought about as a result of a felt need for increased efficiency. Meanwhile, of course, there may be a large-scale biological and atomic war --- in which case we shall have nightmares of other and scarcely imaginable kinds.

-->Thank you once again for the book.

* While most of Joan Cornellà's surreal visual strips rely on the "TomatoSurprise" trope to act as a punch line, sometimes they use this trope as one. In one strip a man in a red coat shakes hands with a man in a white shirt, who has a needle stuck in his arm and pisses all over the man in the suit's pant's leg. It doesn't phase him at all...[[spoiler:until he see's the other man works in ''marketing''.]]
