Epigraph to Huxley's
Brave New World:
"Utopias appear to be
a good deal more realizable
than was previously thought. And today we are faced with an alarming
question of a different nature: How to avoid their complete realization?
Utopias are realizable. Life moves towards utopias. And perhaps a new
century is beginning, a century when intellectuals and the cultured class
will dream of ways of avoiding utopias and of returning to a non-utopic
society, less "perfect" and more "free."
