Having read Aldous Huxley's "Brave New World" and George Orwell’s "1984" this writer concludes that Huxley's work is the more prescient representation of the present we live in and the future we face. Wells appeared to be in the lead up until the fall of the former Soviet Union but since then the world has been on the march to a one world global authority with frightening speed. While there is evidence that a 1984 surveillance state could emerge from the onslaught of technology
