Featured: Brave New World,

the mini-series, 2020, Peacock network

Sexy, high budget, well-written, and – like the book by Aldous Huxley – a commentary on how

tyranny can arrive via comfort, ease, and pleasure.

Looking at today’s rise in the seeking of comfort and illusion of safety over freedom, this mini-series seems prophetic in the extreme.

I see this mini-series as a potential red pill for the many who may not see the price we are paying and will pay in the future for choosing comfort and the illusion of safety over freedom.

Originally on NBC’s new Peacock network.

A few more we might call “pro-individualism”, “pro-decentralization,” or even “pro-liberty”
