Above is a 1958 Mike Wallace interview with the author of Brave New World, Aldous Huxley. I find this conversation to be extremely interesting. Mr. Huxley discusses the detriments of big business and big government, which we are encountering today. He also talks about the development of new technologies that distract and train us to think a certain way (Facebook? Twitter, anyone?). Even though it’s a little stuffy, I miss this type of media. Intellectualism has been played down for many decades now, and I think it would be very beneficial for all of us to make a resurgence.
