Amusing Ourselves To Death

Stuart McMillen represents, via a comic representation, the competing views of George Orwell (1984) and Aldous Huxley (Brave New World) on the end of a productive, beneficial civilization.  I’ve read neither book, but based on this, I think Aldous wins, doing a pretty fine job of representing our world as we know it today.

Or, as R.E.M. sang…

It’s the end of the world as we know it, and I feel fine.
