Honors 11: 1984 Impromptu #2

We took our second impromptu for the unit first thing this morning. It was 1984-based. Afterwards, I asked you to get started explicating David Bowie‘s song “We are the Dead” from his 1974 album Diamond Dogs. The lyrics are linked in the previous post.

Then you were to begin reading Aldous Huxley’s “Brainwashing” chapter from his collection of essays published in 1958 titled Brave New World Revisited: Further Thoughts on the Future. It is also linked in the previous post. It was written post-Brave New World.

Both need to be read and annotated for tomorrow.
