Aldous Huxley first presented the “scientific dictatorship” to the public imagination in his book Brave New World. In Dope, Inc., associates of political dissident Lyndon LaRouche claim that Huxley’s book was actually a “mass appeal” organizing document written “on behalf of one-world order” (Dope, Inc. 538). The book also claims the United States is the only place where Huxley’s “science fiction classic” is taught as an allegorical condemnation of fascism (Dope, Inc. 538). If this is true, then the “scientific dictatorship” presented within the pages of his 1932 novel Brave New World is a thinly disguised roman a clef–a novel that thinly veils real people or events–awaiting tangible enactment.
Such is often the case with “science fiction” literature. According to researcher Michael Hoffman, this literary genre is instrumental in the indoctrination of the masses into the doctrines of the elite:
“Traditionally, ‘science fiction’ has appeared to most people as an adolescent genre, the province of time-wasting fantasies. This has been the great strength of this genre as a vehicle for the inculcation of the ideology favored by the Cryptocracy. As J.H. Towsen points out in Clowns, only when people think they are not buying something can the real sales pitch begin. While it is true that with the success of NASA’s Gemini space program and the Apollo moon flights more serious attention and respectability was accorded ‘science fiction,’ nonetheless in its formative seeding time, from the late 19th century through the 1950s, the predictive program known as ‘science fiction’ had the advantage of being derided as the solitary vice of misfit juveniles and marginal adults.” (205)
Thus, “science fiction” is a means of conditioning the masses to accept future visions that the elite wish to tangibly enact. This process of gradual and subtle inculcation is dubbed “predictive programming.” Hoffman elaborates: “Predictive programming works by means of the propagation of the illusion of an infallibly accurate vision of how the world is going to look in the future” (205). Also dubbed “sci-fi inevitabilism” by Hoffman, predictive programming is analogous to a virus that infects its hosts with the false belief that it is:
- Useless to resist central, establishment control.
- Or it posits a counter-cultural alternative to such control which is actually a counterfeit, covertly emanating from the establishment itself.
- That the blackening (pollution) of earth is as unavoidable as entropy.
- That extinction (‘evolution”) of the species is inevitable.
- That the reinhabitation of the earth by the “old gods” (Genesis 6:4), is our stellar scientific destiny. (8)
