Or, at least, that's my opinion. Huxley decided, in the late fifties, to "revisit" his work and comment on it, in order for a better understanding.

He did a really nice job in this.. He explained some things about it and he made an apology for other things that he thought were not good enough, or should have been written better about. He was just too young to know.

This explanation of his was a good way for me of finding some new things about this world and starting to think about new ideas that didn't occur to me before. He did a lot of comparisons with Hitler's regime, but I think that's because Hitler had just gone out of our world for a bit more than 20 years and everything about that tragedy was still recent in the minds of the people living then.

Fukuyama does not dispute that psychiatric drugs can bring great benefits, but he is concerned over the increasing 'medicalization' of human personality. Another challenge is the prolongation of life.

Whether or not new technologies such as stem cells further increase lifespan, the populations of many industrialized countries are aging dramatically. The economic dangers are widely acknowledged, and everyone agrees that treatments to preserve mental powers in old age are urgently needed.

However, such treatments may lead to other problems that are less widely discussed.

For example, if the elderly remain active, they will be reluctant to concede power to younger people, who will increasingly see their ambitions being thwarted by the generations preceding them. The third and perhaps most threatening challenge is eugenics. Its current low reputation rests on two criticisms: that it is scientifically unfounded, and that it is associated with a history of governmental coercion.

In Fukuyama's view, however, both arguments are collapsing.

Many human attributes, including cognitive abilities, clearly have a hereditary component, and identification of the genes responsible will raise the possibility of effective intervention. Although germ-line modification does not seem imminent and may never be widespread, pre-implantation screening is already happening. It will spread, not through government policy but through the choices of individual parents, likely accelerating as the technology becomes cheaper and more efficient.

The wound was still open and, apparently, it didn't want to close up. I liked a lot of things that he said about our world and I do find it strange or, to say, kind of amazing that what he wrote in was available in and is available now, and what he wrote in is also true for nowadays. The same thing Orwell did in , when he spoke of this idea - the ability of the rulers of our known little world called Earth to kill freedom before it is born.

Now I'm not sure which of them did it better, because even though they are based on the same principles and mainly the same big idea, the details are very different and it doesn't come at all as a surprise that I can't pick my favorite.
