Aldous Huxley letter to George Orwell


Different visions? The covers of these editions of Orwell's 1984, left, and Huxley's Brave New World, use similar imagery



Wrightwood. California.
21 October, 1949

Dear Mr. Orwell,

It was very kind of you to tell your publishers to send me a copy of your book.

It arrived as I was in the midst of a piece of work that required much reading and consulting of references; and since poor sight makes it necessary for me to ration my reading, I had to wait a long time before being able to embark on Nineteen Eighty-Four.

Agreeing with all that the critics have written of it, I need not tell you, yet once more, how fine and how profoundly important the book is.

May I speak instead of the thing with which the book deals — the ultimate revolution?

The first hints of a philosophy of the ultimate revolution — the revolution which lies beyond politics and economics, and which aims at total subversion of the individual's psychology and physiology — are to be found in the Marquis de Sade, who regarded himself as the continuator, the consummator, of Robespierre and Babeuf.

The philosophy of the ruling minority in Nineteen Eighty-Four is a sadism which has been carried to its logical conclusion by going beyond sex and denying it.

Whether in actual fact the policy of the boot-on-the-face can go on indefinitely seems doubtful.

My own belief is that the ruling oligarchy will find less arduous and wasteful ways of governing and of satisfying its lust for power, and these ways will resemble those which I described in Brave New World.

I have had occasion recently to look into the history of animal magnetism and hypnotism, and have been greatly struck by the way in which, for a hundred and fifty years, the world has refused to take serious cognizance of the discoveries of Mesmer, Braid, Esdaile, and the rest.

Partly because of the prevailing materialism and partly because of prevailing respectability, nineteenth-century philosophers
and men of science were not willing to investigate the odder facts of psychology for practical men, such as politicians, soldiers and policemen, to apply in the field of government.

Thanks to the voluntary ignorance of our fathers, the advent of the ultimate revolution was delayed for five or six generations.

Another lucky accident was Freud's inability to hypnotize successfully and his consequent disparagement of hypnotism.

This delayed the general application of hypnotism to psychiatry for at least forty years.

But now psycho-analysis is being combined with hypnosis; and hypnosis has been made easy and indefinitely extensible through the use of barbiturates, which induce a hypnoid and suggestible state in even the most recalcitrant subjects.

Within the next generation I believe that the world's rulers 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 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.

The change will be brought about as a result of a felt need for increased efficiency.

Meanwhile, of course, there may be a large scale biological and atomic war — in which case we shall have nightmares of other and scarcely imaginable kinds.

Thank you once again for the book.

Yours sincerely,

Aldous Huxley

"Infant conditioning and narcohypnosis" & "Suggesting people into loving their servitude"

 That seems to me a very good descriptor of modern western society


  1. Orwell and Huxley were both members of The Fabian Society, a satanic Freemasonry group with ties to Tavistock,both groups working to bring about a New World Order.They met one another in the early 1930's through the Fabian Society,in London.

    They both knew enough about the agenda of the ruling-class to be able to predict the future. They were used by the satanic banking-class that owns all of Freemasonry - including Tavistock and The Fabian Society - to inform us of the plans and goals the ruling-class has for us.

    It's called Revealation of the Method. It's important to satanists - especially the ruling-class satanists- to reveal to us their plans. It's a law in satanism ; It's a type of goading : "Well, we told them about our plans, and they didn't do anything to stop us, so they approve of our agenda". It's a way satanists justify their agenda. While they reveal to us their plans, they don't do it in a straight-forward,up-front manner,however. It's revealed to us in a rather under-handed manner.

    It doesn't mean Huxley and Orwell were satanists,necessarily. It means the satanists in The Fabian Society used Huxley's and Orwell's intelligence, and their concern about the future, to Reveal The Method to us.

    They were given enough information to be able to predict the future. I'm not sure if they themselves knew they were being used as a means of Revealation. I'm not sure. They're both complicated and mysterious figures in many ways.

    Still, they were both members of The Fabian Society. While they revealed to us a lot, they never got around to revealing to us they were members of Tavistock/The Fabians.

    They never revealed to us that the banking ruling-class in London and New York bank-rolled both the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany.They both worked to buttress the hegelian dialectic that was planned in the satanic Freemasonry Halls of London & Europe, and here in the US.

    In the Revealing of the Method, they both told us the truth about the plans of the satanic ruling class. It was presented to us as being "fiction", however, not "non-fiction" -which would have been the straight-forward,up-front way to tell us : A bit under-handed, as is the way with members of Freemasonry. We truly are ruled by satanists.

    I'm not sure how deeply they were involved in satanism. The higher one advances in Freemasonry, the more satanic it gets. That they were both members of Tavistock's Fabian Society is an historical fact.

    When Orwell's widow passed-away,for example, all of Orwell's personal papers,letters,etc was willed to The Fabian Society. The Fabians keep Orwell's personal letters,papers,etc, under-lock-and-key.

    From : Joe

    1. Hey Joe

      that sounds odd, thinking of Jimi Hendrix, of course

      Orwell and Huxley:

      doesn't it appear to you as if both were in the employ of some think tank, like Tavistock, projecting possible ways to move the future society 'forward' and I use that term very loosely because we would have to define "forward" for who?

      I recall putting up a very old post, put forth by some think tank group
      where they had scenarios for different worlds
      there was fortress world and enviro controlled word etc
      here it is

      Market World, Fortress World, or Transformed World?

      Private think tanks plot course for humanity

      anyway..... this is how I see Orwell and Huxley
      putting forth possible future versions of the world, for the elites of course, and it is in our face

      so you might be right on that this was presented for mass consumption as "fiction" but it was really some sort of study, for lack of a better term

      Aldous was far more connected to the elites, to my knowledge then Orwell, but I could be wrong
      Jan Irvin at Gnostic media has done much work connecting Julian and Aldous and Darwin and many others all together
      Scary shit

    2. @ Penny

      You're right :It's "Scary shit".

      I'm not an expert on Huxley and Orwell,still I know enough about them to agree with you in that they both worked - albeit in an under-handed way - "to move society forward", as you say. Forward to the New World Order that the rulers of this world want so desperately.

      WW2, for example - the set-up between Communists vs Fascists --was planned by the banking ruling class to greatly weaken Europe and help usher in the NWO. It's scary shit, all right. Orwell and Huxley - especially Huxley - worked to move the NWO forward, in their own unique,individual way. The US/UK sided with the Soviet Union ; Not that the Nazis were any better. It was a real no-win situation for the West, meant to weaken the West and make us more accepting of the NWO.

      I learned a lot about satanism and how satanists think and plan and work from Michael Hoffman at his "revisionisthistory" website. He has an excellent bookstore about the topic of satantic Freemasonry, as well as articles one can read online. That's where I learned about The Revealation of the Method. An important law in satanism.

      I think Huxley was much more deeply involved in the Fabian Society than was Orwell.Huxley was much more connected to the elites, as you rightfully point out.

      Orwell is more enigmatic to me. While a member of the Fabian Society, his life story indicates a certain naivete at the same time. I don't think Orwell truly knew how much he was being used by the leaders of the Fabian Society, though perhaps he vaguely sensed he was being used.From reading his life story, I sense he wanted to break free from The Fabian group, but didn't know how, or maybe, they wouldn't let him. Again, all of his personal papers and letters are under lock-and-key.

      The topic of satanism is a hard subject - very ugly - but I find studying it helps me understand better how we're ruled, and helps me understand where all the filth in our culture emanates from. I use the knowledge I glean about the topic of satanism to protect my heart, my mind, my spirit, from all the filth coming out of Washington, Madison Ave, and Hollywood. All 3 are connected through Freemasonry.

      Thank you for your time and work. I appreciate it. I will go to Jan Irvin's Gnostic Media. Thank you for suggesting that. I had forgotten about Gnostic Media. There's so many websites, I sometimes have trouble keeping up. But, it's a challenge I enjoy, and learn alot from.

      I will read your article about "private think tanks". Thank you for bringing the info to my attention. As far as I know, all the think tanks are connected to very big-money, like the Rockefeller Fund and others of that ilk.

      It's all "Scary shit". That's how it feels to me too.

      From : Joe

    3. And overwhelming also.

      But you know what Joe, as much as it is all scary, I try to stay out of that fear
      Because that is what these elite psychopaths want..Fear makes us easier to control
      And getting informed and sharing that info is what empowers us all.
      So stay out of fear, ok?
      Oh and non participation
      I like that. Don't let them 'move you along'
      Don't eat the garbage food and as you rightly say don't take the garbage media into your brain

      "Thank you for your time and work. I appreciate it"

      I cannot tell you how happy that makes me! And I do mean that with all sincerity.

      I have always felt the blog is a learning place for me and those who read along
      Speaking for myself, since I have had this blog going I have taken in an enormous amount of information that I would not have otherwise been exposed to
      And it really gives me much to ponder, while being a definite eye opening experience

      Did you take in Jose Berarra's presentation that i had posted
      It was most excellent
      If you didn't I would suggest you do.

      Regarding Aldous Huxley as Jan Irvin points out he advocated/initiated the transhuman movement
      The ultimate control of humanity
      that should be rejected as a matter of course

      I appreciate you reading, thanks so much Joe :)

    4. The 'Revelation of the method' is not about goading us as you suggested. 'They' are aware of the FACT that human thought/consciousness literally creates reality. The more of us thinking about and imagining this doomed future, the more likely it is to happen. So wake up, be aware, and then move up and beyond. Have faith and focus on love.

    5. Thanks for this post - great blog here, thank you Penny. It is interesting how Huxley appreciated the way that both works were slightly different blueprints but the end results would be a combination of the two. I think 1984 would be better called 2084 and Brave New World is the part of the plan we are currently in.

    6. Yes, this is a 'brave new world' but I often ask for who?

    7. Actually, George Orwell met Huxley long before he had contact with him in the Fabians. Huxley was one of his teachers when he was at Eton.

  2. Narco-hypnosis works very well via heterodyne 'piggyback' EM waves from satellites, which log on to any subject's (dissident's) EEG while they sleep and entrains their mind. Also called brain-washing and mind-control.

    This process is occuring to tens of thousands of people around the world every single night. I am one of them.

    Dr. John Hall wrote a basic book on this subject in 2011/2012.

    1. Anaughty Mouser
      what book would that be?


      A New Breed - Satellite Terrorism


      If you want to read more about the development of electronic hypnotism you may read:!topic/alt.mindcontrol/vFkv5lMxKQE


    3. I was thinking of narco hypnosis as being more involving drugs ie antidepressants etc
      really being pushed with the "mental health agenda"
      which has nothing to do with the mental health of anyone
      Then the hypnosis comes in via the msm, movies,tv and celebrities
      Many people are definitely hypnotised by these things

    4. Dr John Hall and John Allman - IMHO the jury is still out.

      I will not go further than that at this time.


  3. Love your work, first time commenter.
    Just today I read something which dovetails with this. In my Midwestern city in the US the Dali Lama is planning a visit/conference for May.the conference will be called "Change your mind, change the world" and will be led by people who are called "thought leaders" (not making that up!). Many of Dali's friends here are University professors involved in brain/emotion science and many of them are vivisectors. That is they make up chilling experiments where they torture animals, then they meditate, then they dissect the animals and then extrapolate all the bullshit to humans.

    1. Kitty!
      Hi and thanks

      "change your mind, change the world"
      Oh that just sounds evil!

      I find the Dalai so repulsive. He is such a tool of the elites.

      "Unsustainable consumption of natural resources now threatens the health of our planet and, subsequently, our human species," says Jonathan Patz, director of the Global Health Institute. "Attendees will be challenged to explore new and interconnected solutions to global health problems. The complexity of these issues requires it"

      sounds like Agenda 21.. and I think they have drug taking as a big part of that Agenda no?
      Like a rehash of the psychedelic sixties stuff
      Perhaps using other drugs this time

      and I can't help but notice the over representation of business interests

      Don Berwick, national leader on health care quality, former CEO of the Institute for Healthcare Improvement

      Lord Richard Layard, professor, economist

      Jonathan Patz, whose work on global climate change...(the lie of man made global warming)

      Arianna Huffington- media whore

      that really warms my heart..not

      "professors involved in brain/emotion science and many of them are vivisectors. That is they make up chilling experiments where they torture animals, then they meditate, then they dissect the animals and then extrapolate all the bullshit to humans."

      nightmarish, truly

      thanks for letting us know about that Kitty

    2. So you don't believe there is a hole in the ozone layer, or that the industrial revolution and huge pollution outputs have any issues on our planet's ecosystem??

    3. Did anyone say that anywhere?

  4. Yeah, thanks, Mouser, I'm going to check those out. BTW, I've also been a targeted victim of that EMF/Microwave crap. I'm not sure how they deliver the waves -- I'm sure one could use satellites -- but I talk about the general idea here:

    Jesse Ventura dedicated a TV episode of "Conspiracy Theory" to the "Brain Invaders," you can watch it here:

    1. Hi Jody, i saw that episode - i would say it is another 'Rules of Engagement' job. It is not the real deal. They are just trying to get the limited hangout in there first. Basically i would not recommend any kind of simple focus on the Gwen towers - that avenue is the 'thermite' of mind control if you get me. I checked your post out. A large part of the basis is brain entrainment - agreed on that. I then followed your link to:

      That is an impressively brave post from back in '04. I saw you noticed it beginning in Nov '01. i've posted this:

      Hope this link works - the page is being ignored by google

      Come by to my place I would appreciate a chance to compare notes.

      Best wishes,

  5. Aldous Huxley, Bertrand Russell, Sigmund Freud and the Frankfurt School all descended upon America and Hollywood in particular around the same time. No coincidence - the start of the modern counter-culture revolution.

    The Age of Aquarius

  6. Huxley is turning in his grave nearly 100 years after his visionary prophecies began to form into his own mode of fiction. He is one of my favorite authors and raised serious issues and made world-wide breakthroughs in the research of psychedelics as well as our cognitive liberties. I drew a portrait as homage to the man and his works. See the him roll with the mushrooms, the pills and the doors of perception at

    1. HI Brandt

      I actually don't think he would be rolling in his grave
      I suspect he would be disappointed at the lack of progress made towards his 'utopian' vision of the world
      Using the term utopian with the utmost sarcasm

  7. Hey Penny,

    Well they say great minds think alike. Good post.

    I have not seen that letter before, it definitely does give more insight into Huxley. Mesmer is a very interesting figure too.

    Great stuff Penny!

  8. A bit off topic, but I think it's important :

    A person commented here about vivisectors. Please be vigilant watching over your animals. The rate of animal theft is increasing with every year. Many stolen dogs, for example, wind up in the hands of vivisectors. One can sell an animal to the vivisectors with no questions asked. It's digusting. Many drug addicts steal dogs/cats to sell to vivisectors, and to satanists for their satanic rituals. Please be vigilant over your animals.

    A good website to learn more :

    Also, the Search Term : "Vivisectors + Animal Theft" will access the above website, as well as other websites about animal theft, vivisection, and how to better protect your animals.

    I have a friend in San Francisco who had his dog stolen 10 years ago. He's still crying in his heart for his dog. It's very painful to have a pet stolen, and to never know what happened to your companion.

    From : Joe

    1. Vivisector was an entirely new word for me

      So I had to find the defintion

      a vivisector is a individual who practices vivisection

      the act or practice of performing experiments on living animals, involving cutting into or dissecting the body

      which seems especially cruel

  9. It's been a long time since I read 1984 and Brave New World. The former in my mid teens and the latter sometime early in my 20's. Once I had read them, especially 1984, I would look for the things they described, to see how prophetic they were. Both contain a wealth of material that is useful for understanding the role both mind and population control play in present oligarchic, fascist dominance of the so-called "free world". I don't know much about the men themselves.

    вот так
    Ironically, just today I noticed a rather blatant example of one of the things 1984 predicted. News scrubbing. Where older news articles are later changed to match current propaganda. That was the job of the main character in 1984. This censorship occurred today at the Guardian regarding an older story about the new pope's unsavoury past helping the dictatorship in Argentina during the "dirty war" period when up 30000 people were disappeared and brutally murdered by that government. The Guardian article originally described the role of the new pope in those crimes, but today, those parts of the article critical of the new pope were removed from it.

    What I noticed about this new pope is how all the zionist media (that is essentially all of western media published in English) are full of nothing but praise for this pope. His connections to the grotesque dictatorship are left out. This had me wondering why all the zionist media were in unison (it usually means something important to the zionists in the fascist western establishment)so I checked on what Jewish advocacy sites were saying. They were ecstatic about this guy. The new pope must be zionist and closely connected with jp. The Guardian, being a Jewish owned and run media source that is particularly in tune with the zionists, they obviously got the message. That message is: "He is one of ours, whitewash him". And that is what is being done throughout the zionist controlled media.

    1. They got their man in place -

    2. The post above was from me, I accidentally posted my nick in the middle of it, instead of at the end. I had also meant to write something else, but got distracted and had to wrap it up unexpectedly.

      One thing I remember from Brave New World was in the forward or introduction, Huxley criticised his own work as inadequate. If I remember right, he had society divided into two groups. With one of the groups very self repressed, but acting morally, and the other unrepressed, but amoral. Neither of the groups had any appeal. Huxley stated he should have included a third grouping of people who were not extremists. I thought that admirable that he would criticise his own work that way and point out a major way in which he thought he messed up.

      вот так

    3. bot tak:

      I cannot tell you how many times I have seen that scenario
      . "Where older news articles are later changed to match current propaganda"
      I have even done posts around the change.
      One where I had the article saved ( prepping for a post) go back to the link
      Because I always link back to the original and the relevant section is completely gone! then I have to go find the relevant section either in the cache pages or on some smaller news website that is not as busily wiping out reporting as the larger media outlets are
      It can be quite a challenge

      Huxley has society divided into five groups in Brave New World
      I found a chapter by chapter synopsis of the book and did some reading
      I am going to link it to the blog, shortly

  10. I think this narco-narcissism has as its greatest tool , the SCREEN - be it film, internet, smart?phone. We delve into the screen and often imagine ourselves , or project ourselves into the multiple roles presented , esp. by the Film/TV/News business.

    The Greeks predicted the narcissism-narcotic-narcolepsy of the West both simply and accurately

    Fims/TV/News and Video game narcissism is , of course, amplified by using narcotics, though it isn't a necessity.


    1. Cheers Aferrismoon
      And ty for stopping by
      You make me think about how it is these days people want to be celebrities..
      They fancy themselves celebrities. So hopeless. As if there is nothing else they can do or be that they would find fulfilling
      How did this come to be?

      Perhaps it is all the hollywood, music videos video games that somehow create this perception in their minds?
      Does no one want to be a human being?

  11. A double-edged sword

    We also talked about the potential risks.
    “There’s the risk of bugs in hardware or software,” says Naam. “There’s the risk of malware or viruses that infect this. There’s the risk of hackers being able to break into the implants in your head. We’ve already seen hackers demonstrate that they can remotely take over pacemakers and insulin pumps. The same risks exist here.”

    But the big societal risk, says Naam, stems entirely from the question of who controls this technology.

    “That’s the central question I ask in Nexus,” he says. “If we all have brain implants, you can imagine it driving a very bottom’s up world — another Renaissance, a world where people are free and creating and sharing more new ideas all the time. Or you can imagine it driving a world like that of 1984, where central authorities are the ones in control, and they’re the ones using these direct brain technologies to monitor people, to keep people in line, or even to manipulate people into being who they’re supposed to be. That’s what keeps me up at night.”

    1. "Or you can imagine it driving a world like that of 1984, where central authorities are the ones in control, and they’re the ones using these direct brain technologies to monitor people, to keep people in line, or even to manipulate people into being who they’re supposed to be"

      Is there any reason to think that brain technologies would be used in any otherway?
      Who controls the technology?
      That is who will control the people
      Look, right now at the tyranny of microsoft and apple
      that should say it all

  12. Who knows that Aldous Huxley was Orwell's (Eric Blair's) French professor at Eton. Also I have never found a shred of evidence besides one unsubstantiated claim in Fabian Freeway that Orwell was a Fabian. All I could come up with is that Orwell attended a Fabian Society summer camp -- by he was terribly put off by Beatrice Webb, so I doubt that he would have joined her Society,

  13. I'm so glad I found this blog. My name is Josh and I'm currently undergoing my basic studies at a local community college in my area. My final for my composition 2 class is to write a research paper on any author of our choosing. It was an easy choice for me as I've always loved George Orwell's work. My stepdad suggested that I look into Orwell's involvement into the Fabian Society and how it influenced 1984. Surprisingly (to me at least) I've found little to no substantial information on the matter in my research until I found this blog. At a time in my life when I'm awakening to the true reality of the world we live in, its always reassuring to find like minded individuals who question the way things are. Thank you Penny for creating this blog, and thank everyone else for participating. I would greatly appreciate any and all information that I could use for my research paper. Please feel free to email me @ with anything I can use.

    Regards and love,


  14. Penny - thank you for this article and your ongoing work to reveal the truth behind the lies. I am researching a novel set in the year 1984 which I plan to publish in the coming months - I will send you a copy (free of charge) when it goes live. Truth really is stranger than fiction!!

    1. Hi Neil:
      Truth really is stranger then fiction. I learn that everyday I have this blog- And I've had it for many, many days..

      Is there a site or blog you have where you publish anything at this time?
      Would love to check it out!
      Let me know and yeah I would love a copy of a book,because I love books in general

  15. walkingfjord and Neil Ashworth:
    at one time I'd come across a fairly obscure book about Mr Orwell- If I can dig it up I will post the title and link here if possible- pretty sure it was a pdf

    1. There's also this interview with Gilad Atzmon about George Orwell which is very interesting

      showing that he was in fact national-socialist (not nazi) a thing that the PC lefty crowd will be incapable to understand.

  16. Dear Penny and dear All,
    Penny, I've found your post and subsequent comments really interesting and enlightening. Orwell is one of my favourites and his "Animal Farm" and "1984" attracted me in my younger years and continue to attract me now in view of the current developments of a NWO coming up.
    Some time ago I started wondering how Orwell could have described so accurately a dystopian world as we can see in front of our nose, and asked myself whether "someone" had given him some hints. The same question is valid for Jules Verne.
    A good friend of mine, who is deeply soaked in the knowledge of all this NWO/Transhumanism/Illuminati/et al. crap, hinted at me that Orwell may well have been a member of the Fabian Society--a name which I came across when reading Saki's "The Byzantime Omelette" and of whose existence I just deemed as something of the past (in that short story Saki ridiculed the Fabians and the well-to-do Socialists). Well, no, the Fabians are alive and kicking, and it just blew my mind to find out that it was them (not the "destitutes" or the "proles") who were behind the creation of the Labour Party in Britain.
    However, the Fabian Society's website nothing says about Orwell (and as far as I remember, Huxley) having been a member of it. I have googled in many possible ways so as to find a connection, but so far, no news. However, reading between the lines, one can connect the loose ends.
    Warmest regards from Argentina,

    1. According to things I read a long time. The key to understanding Orwell is to be found in his correspondence from the Spanish civil war.
      He went there as a "communist activist" and became completely disenchanted with what he witnessed there. The Spanish civil war is currently portraid as left vs right but the reality on the terrain was more nuanced than that.
      There was a real ground swell anarchist movement that was heavily repressed from the francists but also, and that's what's important, even more by the communists. A aspect completely suppressed nowadays.
      This pushed Orwell into the neither/nor camp.

      This video of Gilad Atzmon is also very interesting concerning Eric Blair (Orwell's real name).

    2. thanks gallier2!
      PS I sent you an email..

  17. Hello Viviana:

    Thanks for the comment- I'm still surprised at the readers this posting gets..

    Somewhere I had a book about Orwell which made the case he was connected to the elite classes, but, where it is in my many files is lost on me at this time..

    You might find this interesting

    maybe you wanna look through the multiple links here

    Huxley is, completely, an elitist, in every way shape and form- his connections to so many other elite psychos are myriad- the UN/transhumanism etc.,
    In fact his connection to and promotion of the psychedelic use back in the day is undeniable and connects him right back to intelligence groups/big pharma and worse

    So, you are right about connecting the loose ends- It can be done. It must be done. If humans are to survive.
    And yes, I actually do believe our existence is threatened more gravely then that of the polar bear and all the other creatures we are told are on the precipice of extinction and about to fall over- We are there as well.
