More oddly placed Huxley
Looking through some new items at American Radio History, I found a 1936 issue of a radio listener guide from India,
containing Huxley's essay on Pacifism and Philosophy. The magazine wasn't political; it was just the Indian version of the typical weekly program listing with ads and feature articles aimed at housewives.
Huxley has a way of turning up in odd places.
I read the essay, hoping Huxley might have something useful to offer. His insights were prophetic in many areas.
Nope, nothing useful. Huxley gets the facts right. Discussion is pointless, democracy is an empty word, violence works, war and insane genocide are normal. He claims at the start of the article to offer a solution, a way to shape governments toward non-interventionism through discussion. He never gets there.
Only one difference between then and now: Discussion is WORSE than pointless now. In the '30s the Euro Deepstates were using crude censorship to stop all discussion. Since 1946 the US/UK Deepstate has mastered the technique of using fake discussions between two fake "sides" to DISPLACE real thought and real questions.
This isn't really new. Jesuits perfected the art many centuries ago. Jesuit-trained intellectuals know every sleazy dirty vicious arguing trick in the book, and use every trick all the time to defeat and dispirit and de-soul their opponents. Lady Edgar was trained by Jesuits, and she packed her FBI with other Jesuit-trained Romans. After FDR died, Lady Edgar ran rampant creating fake "sides" in every area of culture, ripping up the fabric of society with Jesuit expertise.
