Huxley vs Orwell

Interesting comic comparing the two:

But why is it always, "they are trying to control us;" if the comic correctly shows Huxley's nightmare as our reality, it's not a result of a mid-century plan to control the population. This media universe arose within a free market system where mid-managers were incented to make slightly more appealing content, ads and media to capture market share. The net net after 50 years may very well be Huxley, but as a side effect, not an end.
