Before The Hunger Games, There Was Brave New World

The Hunger Games is opening in theaters this weekend, and if you didn’t buy your ticket in time for many of the sold out shows, how about exploring other dystopian novels? Take, for example, Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World. In London in 2540, humans are bred and drugged to more passively serve their government. But one man, Bernard Marx, wants more than his mapped out future…

In this 1958 interview with Mike Wallace, Aldous Huxley talks about how his classic 1931 dystopian novel seemed to be coming true.
