This is a great strip about the difference between the 2 great writers and society. Worth a laugh.... or maybe a cry :-/

Very interesting and made me realize how long it's been since I read either of those books.
I can remember reading Brave New World as a young teenager and asking my English teacher what pneumatic meant in the context Huxely used it lol

Unfortunately, Orwell and Huxley were both correct.
