Aldous Huxley interviewed by Mike Wallace in 1958, Huxley shares his visions and fears for this brave new world: the difficulties and dangers of world overpopulation; the tendency towards distinctly hierarchical social organisation; the crucial importance of evaluating the use of technology in mass societies susceptible to persuasion; the tendency to promote modern politicians to a naive public as well-marketed commodities.
