(via huxley vs. orwell - mlkshk) The first night I really got drunk I met a friend of a friend who talked my ear off about a book by Herman Hesse I’d never heard of which postulated a future dystopia in which the masses were mollified by an abundance of information: publishing was seen as a virtue but functioned as a vice, drowning the populace in irrelevancies. It took me a decade but I think the book was The Glass Bead Game. Have you read it?
