Huxley or Orwell

The most famous dystopian author was George Orwell.  But was the the most accurate?  Depressingly, this cartoon seems to hit the nail right on the head.  Fits my mood for the evening.\

Hat tip to Patrick.

As a fellow nattering nabob I enjoy the relaxing dystopian vision however I regard manking as SO hopefully useless that though I beloieve Huxley to be more or less right (so far as the western world is concerned) I see no purpose in discussing the incorrigable. All of which is why I rarely attenpt to persuade and generally prefer to hock a lugee.
