Amazon Editorial Review

Uma sociedade inteiramente organizada segundo principios cientificos, na qual a mera mencao das antiquadas palavras pai e mae produzem repugnancia. Um mundo de pessoas programadas em laboratorio, e adestradas para cumprir seu papel numa sociedade de castas biologicamente definidas ja no nascimento.

Um mundo no qual a literatura, a musica e o cinema so tem a funcao de solidificar o espirito de conformismo. Um universo que louva o avanco da tecnica, a linha de montagem, a producao em serie, a uniformidade, e que idolatra Henry Ford.Essa e a visao desenvolvida no clarividente romance distopico de Aldous Huxley, que ao lado de 1984, de George Orwell, constituem os exemplos mais marcantes, na esfera literaria, da tematizacao de estados autoritarios. Se o livro de Orwell criticava acidamente os governos totalitarios de esquerda e de direita, o terror do stalinismo e a barbarie do nazifascismo, em Huxley o objeto e a sociedade capitalista, industrial e tecnologica, em que a racionalidade se tornou a nova religiao, em que a ciencia e o novo idolo, um mundo no qual a experiencia do sujeito nao parece mais fazer nenhum sentido, e no qual a obra de Shakespeare adquire tons revolucionarios.

Entretanto, o moderno classico de Huxley nao e um mero exercicio de futurismo ou de ficcao cientifica. Trata-se, o que e mais grave, de um olhar agudo acerca das potencialidades autoritarias do proprio mundo em que vivemos. Como um alerta de que, ao nao se preservarem os valores da civilizacao humanista, o que nos aguarda nao e o roseo paraiso iluminista da liberdade, mas os grilhoes de um admiravel mundo novo.
