Anti-Manipulation manual

The recent years have been a period of changes. But I think the time of collapsing scyscrapers, open wars and tortures is now over. Now you will have to defend yourself against more subtle dangers. Manipulation by companies, but also by radical extremist groups may be an increasing danger. So be prepared! To protect individual freedom, mind and personality I have written the following manual.

"You can't make flivvers without steel and you can't make tragedies without social instability. The world's stable now. People are happy; they get what they want, and they never want what they can't get. They're well off; they're safe; they're never ill; they're not afraid of death; they're blissfully ignorant of passion and old age; they're plagued with no mothers or fathers; they've got no wives, or children, or lovers to feel strongly about; they're so conditioned that they practically can't help behaving as they ought to behave. And if anything should go wrong, there's soma. Which you go and chuck out of the window in the name of liberty, Mr. Savage. Liberty!" He laughed. "Expecting Deltas to know what liberty is! And now expecting them to understand "Othello!" My good boy!"

Aldous Huxley, "Brave New World"
