Malcolm Muggeridge Scoping the Bull

He not only disagreed with them (Orwell, Huxley, Shaw, et al), he knew them.

"I myself am convinced that the theory of evolution, especially the extent to which it’s been applied, will be one of the great jokes in the history books in the future. Posterity will marvel that so very flimsy and dubious an hypothesis could be accepted with the incredible credulity that it has. –-- The End of Christendom (Grand Rapids: Eerdmans, 1980, sp. 43.)

Either life is always and in all circumstances sacred or intrinsically of no account. It is inconceivable that it should be in some cases the one and in some the other.”

And, as one man said, with a terrifying brilliance he made predictions: “Writers like Aldous Huxley and George Orwell have imagined the sort of scientific utopia which is coming to pass, but already their nightmare fancies are hopelessly out of date. A vast, air-conditioned, neon-lighted, glass-and-chromium broilerhouse begins to take shape, in which geneticists select the best stocks to fertilize and watch over the developing embryo to ensure that all possibilities of error and distortion are eliminated.”---Read it all

"I can say with complete truthfulness that everything I have learned in my seventy- years in this world, everything that has truly enhanced and enlightened my existence, has been through affliction and not through happiness, whether pursued or attained. In other words, if it ever were to be possible to eliminate affliction from our earthly existence by means of some drug or other medical mumbo jumbo, as Aldous Huxley envisaged in Brave New World, the result would not be to make life delectable, but to make it too banal and trivial to be endurable. This, of course, is what the Cross signifies. And it is the Cross, more than anything else, that has called me inexorably to Christ."---Jesus Rediscovered

"See, I have refined you, though not as silver; I have tested you in the furnace of affliction." - Isaiah 48:10

'Brave New World' Author
Aldous Huxley on The New Order

--->Aldous Huxley On Sexual "Freedom" In the Interests of Totalitarian Political Control---and Worse

George Bernard Shaw on Eugenics, the engineering out of 'undesirable' human beings.

Muggeridge again, "As the astronauts soar into the vast eternities of space," Muggeridge writes, "on earth the garbage piles higher, as the groves of academe extend their domain, their alumni’s arms reach lower, as the phallic cult spreads, so does impotence. In great wealth, great poverty; in health, sickness, in numbers, deception. Gorging, left hungry; sedated, left restless; telling all, hiding all; in flesh united, forever separate. So we press on through the valley of abundance that leads to the wasteland of satiety, passing through the gardens of fantasy; seeking happiness ever more ardently, and finding despair ever more surely."---The Great Liberal Death Wish

[George Orwell's] work for the overseas service of the BBC, which at the time was under the control of the Ministry of Information, also played a significant role as the basis for his Ministry of Truth in his book 1984, as he later admitted to Malcolm Muggeridge.

Huxley: "For myself, as no doubt for most of my contemporaries, the philosophy of meaninglessness was essentially an instrument of liberation. The liberation we desired was simultaneously liberation from a certain political and economic system and liberation from a certain system of morality. We objected to the morality because it interfered with our sexual freedom." —Aldous Huxley, "Confessions of a Professed Atheist," Report: Perspective on the News, Vol. 3, June 1966, p. 19 [Huxley was grandson of evolutionist Thomas Huxley, Darwin's closest friend and promoter, and brother of evolutionist Julian Huxley. Aldous Huxley was one of the most influential liberal writers of the 20th century].

--->Apropos of the above, Huxley's candid confession about why he did not want the world to have a meaning.

"Sex is the mysticism of materialism and the only possible religion in a materialistic society...The orgasm has replaced the Cross as the focus of longing and the image of fulfillment....The trouble with kingdoms of heaven on earth is that they're liable to come to pass, and then their fraudulence is apparent for all to see...Evolution is one of the stupidest theories of Western life---Malcolm Muggeridge

G.K. Chesterton also knew the Huxley's and Shaw, H.G. Wells, et al, and he wrote,

"[Thomas] Huxley (1825-1895) said, in his later years, that Darwin’s suggestion had never been shown to be inconsistent with any new discovery; and anybody acquainted with the atmosphere will be struck by the singular note of negation in that. When Huxley began to write, he certainly expected that, by the end of his life, Darwin’s suggestion would have been confirmed by a crowd of positive discoveries. Now nobody talks of it at present as a settled scientific law. Even the critic who complained of my own remark called Darwinism a “hypothesis”, and admitted that it had been “profoundly modified”. And he added the very singular and significant phrase: that the Darwinian hypotheses was still “that most sound at bottom"...The last Darwinian will not condescend to argue with you. He will inform you of your ignorance; he will not enlighten your ignorance” ---Doubts about Darwinism

Malthus and Darwin--->Margaret Sanger, Founder of Planned Parenthood: "Keep the doors of immigration closed to the entrance of certain aliens whose condition is known to be detrimental to the stamina of the race, such as feeble-minded, idiots, morons, insane, syphilitic, epileptic, criminal, professional prostitutes, and others in this class barred by the immigration laws of 1924"---Speech 1932 (this tells a part of what kind of families Sanger wanted weeded out of the "race" as if imperfections or tragedies cannot occur in otherwise ordinary families of "hearty stock")

--->Margaret Sanger's Eugenic Plan for Black Americans

"At the present time, let's face it, the Act is acting as abortion on demand ... Abortions are being done even in ... large sections of the NHs ... for social reasons ... and not even seriously considered social reasons; even trivial inconveniences, and patients get abortions done"---from interview with John Keown quoted in Abortion, Doctors, and the Law. 1988, p. 194

--->Charles Darwin and the children of the evolution. Now a sinister link has emerged between his work and the recent spate of high-school killings by crazed, nihilistic teenagers
