"...Within the next generation I believe that the world's leaders 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 them 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."
From a letter to George Orwell, dated 21 October 1949; from Letters of Aldous Huxley, ed. Grover Smith; Harper & Row, 1969. (My italics. jc)
Makes me want all the more to avoid the H1N1 vaccine, amongst all the popular narcotic and other drugs the FDA makes readily available to an unwary public. Do you trust your government to inoculate and medicate you? Have they safeguarded things so well that you feel the US government is trustworthy? If so, might I interest you in a deal on some lovely swampland in Florida?
On an Astrology note: on Oct 21, 1949 at 10:22:47 pm UT in London, England there occurred a New Moon 28Lib09; the Sabian Symbol for '29Lib' is "Humanity Seeking to Bridge the Span of Knowledge."
And back in 1949, that bridge was often crossed by sending a letter. Psychological discoveries and new methods may also be indicated by this symbol, and I feel that perhaps the 'collection' of knowledge (information; 'truth' serums?) and/or scientific trials and experiments may be indicated on other levels as well.
Of course, Huxley's letter could have been written earlier that day during the Balsamic phase of the Moon prior to the evening's New Moon, which would put in within the prophetic phase, the dark of the Moon.
Plus, the Pre-Natal Eclipse of this letter's date is the 5 North Series which manifested @ '8Taurus' on Apr 28, 1949...paraphrasing Brady's Predictive Astrology: an unusual Saros Series involving sudden flashes of ideas that have a psychic or unconscious flavor; hunches, visions, and propehtic dreams as its essence; a very creative Series.

Update 9.28.09: a watchful reader has thoughtfully sent along a link to the Assassination Archives and Research Center where a variety of links lead to many discoveries about the America we think we know, including CIA covert missions and use of tactics that sound suspiciously similar to what Aldous Huxley envisioned as written above.
Among many other subjects in the Archives, you'll find Bush Sr's critique of "conspiracy theorists" concerning the JFK assassination (when Poppy Bush himself was 'on protection duty' as CIA director) while he spoke at the funeral services of Gerald Ford. Yuh, that's what you would say, NWO man.
For as they say in Washington, You lie. They just don't say it to each other often enough because then they'd for once be telling the truth.
