Huxley's Anti-Social Media

"But people never are alone now.... We make them hate solitude; and we arrange their lives so that it's almost impossible for them ever to have it."

-- "His Fordship" Mustapha Mond, Resident World Controller for Western Europe in the frighteningly harmonious 26th Century World State of Aldous Huxley's "Brave New World"
