Postman, in his book titled, Amusing Ourselves to Death: Public Discourse in the
Age of Show Business, is fascinated by literate America. His book is a lament
about the loss of print-shaped America. He cites Aldous Huxley's Brave New
World approvingly. Huxley predicted that we would fall in love with our new
technologies and become enslaved to them. George Orwell, in 1984, was wrong.
Our new technology did not become Big Brother watching over us with a
menacing glance.
