"Texas Woman Acts as Surrogate..."

"...and gives birth to granddaughter."

The immediate reaction of most of the secular world: "Oh how beautiful...a mother acting as a surrogate for her daughter, so that her daughter could have a baby of her own."

My reaction: "This is one of the steps along the path to the final separation of sexual activity from reproduction, and Brave New World becomes more evidently prophetic daily..."

Neil Postman: "In 1984, Orwell added, people are controlled by inflicting pain. In Brave New World, they are controlled by inflicting pleasure. In short, Orwell feared that what we fear will ruin us. Huxley feared that what we desire will ruin us. This book is about the possibility that Huxley, not Orwell, was right.”
