I'm Shelly, a Christ-following, homeschooling Mom of eleven children ( okay, not ALL children. My oldest is 23.) I met my husband right after graduation, and we've been together ever since. Though my life can be hectic at times... okay, ALL the time, I wouldn't change it for anything.

As it happens, I just watched “The Giver” last night. And except for the fact it was more focused on the “keeper of memories” an the goal of the story was to break away from ‘the matrix’ so to speak, The Giver is almost a complete copy of BNW. “Use concise speech….”
Another fascinating anomaly or coincidence (there are no coincidences), is the connection of the narratives of what people like Huxley were writing then, with what seems to be happening now. When this was written, I believe we were coming out of a Great Reset. I think the great writers we are encouraged to read throughout our public programming centers, are the men and women who were familiar with the Reset in the recent past, and began writing fiction that reflects that knowledge.
Knowing that Resets are cyclical (every 100-120 years) it’s not too much of a reach for the younger generations, furthest from the last Reset, thinking of these writers; Orwell, H.G.Wells, Dickens, A.C.Clarke, Heinlein; and industrialists, like Rockefeller, Carnegie, J.P.Morgan, Westinghouse; scientists like Edison, Tesla, Marconi, A.G.Bell; and of course all of the great leaders (who may or may not be fabrications of the writers of history–keepers of memories) of nations that decide when to go to war, when to destroy economies, what natural resources to restrict with shortages and which resources to flood into the market… as just the great men and women of history!
You can’t study everyone in history. Just the ones that will get you a good grade on tests.
Your observations in this series are right over target!
