Primarily based on the highly-conditioned, managed, and warped inhabitants in Huxley’s 1932 novel, this society is a tragic one in want of resistance. So why not John? And, as the brand new posters for the collection declare, “everyone blissful now.” The grammar could be somewhat unusual however the sentiment is obvious: this dystopia thinks emotional issues have been solved because of some helpful prescription drugs.
