Huxley Was Too Modest
I immediately thought of Brave New World when I saw this story. I really think the exciting combination of Orwell's and Huxley's visions that we are to experience in the near, near future will be something to write about-- assuming anyone Catholic lives to do so.
"Going to the Feelies this evening, Henry?" enquired the Assistant Predestinator. "I hear the new one at the Alhambra is first-rate. There's a love scene on a bearskin rug; they say it's marvellous. Every hair of the bear reproduced. The most amazing tactual effects."
-- from Brave New World, by Aldous Huxley
