Brave New World

I recently read this book and it made me think. I would love to live in a world without families. No parents, no children, no significant others. Never get attached to anyone, never feel any misery or pain. And if something goes wrong, there’s always a miraculous drug to make you happy again. But what did they sacrifice for this? Love, art, everything beautiful we now experience and admire. Without pain, happiness is taken for granted; without misery there can be no art; without love you cannot truly know any other person. As the book says, everybody belongs to everybody else. Good thing? Who knows. It might be scary to us now, as we think we are free, but if we had to choose, what would we do? Blue pill or red pill, the question strikes again…
