RAS #621 - Brave New World
On this episode of Ron’s Amazing Stories we present a tale that should shock you. Brave New World was written by English author Aldous Huxley in 1931. It took the world by storm, but not everyone was happy about it. In fact, it is one of the most banned novels on record.  The story is set in a dystopian future where society is controlled by a totalitarian government. People are born in test tubes and conditioned from birth to be happy and obedient. There is no freedom, no individuality, and no dissent. The protagonist of the story is a young man named John who is born outside of the system. He is raised in the countryside and learns about the true nature of the world. When he is brought to the city, he is shocked by what he sees. He cannot believe that people would give up their freedom for a life of comfort and conformity. John's story is a cautionary tale about the dangers of totalitarianism. It is a warning about what can happen when we allow the government to control too much of our lives. A Brave New World is a powerful and thought-provoking novel that is still relevant today. It is a story that everyone should hear, even if it makes them uncomfortable. Featured Story - Brave New World Our featured story was first published by Chatto & Windus in August of 1932. It is a novel by English author Aldous Huxley. What we will hear is the radio adaptation done by CBS Radio Workshop. The author himself does the narration and the quality of the recording is amazing! It is titled Brave New World and it first aired on January 27, 1956.  Ron’s Amazing Stories Is Sponsored by: Audible - You can get a free audiobook and a 30 day free trial at audibletrial.com/ronsamazingstories .
