Aldous Huxley was the grandson of 'Darwin's bulldog' Thomas Huxley and the brother of Julian Huxley who, amongst other things, became the first director of UNESCO in 1948. He is perhaps best known for his book 'Brave New World', published in 1932, which was his vision of a future society.
Huxley gave the speech linked to below in 1962. At this time his ideas about what the future would hold had developed. He discusses what he calls the 'scientific dictatorships of the future'. Whilst not appearing to be as enthusiastic for this as Bertrand Russell it should be remembered that he was very much a part of the elite. What he says can, though, be taken as a warning. Although it can't really be doubted that much of what he describes has already come to pass.
I tend to agree with Huxley in his assessment that scientific dictatorships would much prefer the techniques he discusses than the more direct methods outlined by George Orwell in 1984. Not for any moral reasons but for the purely practical reason outlined in the quote below. It should also be noted that, in his typical ambivalent style, Huxley also suggests the best way of defeating this nightmare.
"Only a large-scale popular movement toward decentralization and self-help can arrest the present tendency toward statism... A really efficient totalitarian state would be one in which the all-powerful executive of political bosses and their army of managers control a population of slaves who do not have to be coerced, because they love their servitude. To make them love it is the task assigned, in present-day totalitarian states, to ministries of propaganda, newspaper editors and schoolteachers."
