DiCaprio To Lead The Natural Life In A Brave New World

In the future, the world will be a dystopia. Poverty and warfare will have been abolished, and humanity is carefree and technologically advanced. It will also be permanently happy due to government-provided stimulation. Of course, all of this will come at a cost as family, culture, art, literature, science, religion will have been eliminated. At least, that’s how things are envisioned in Aldous Huxley 1932 novel A Brave New World.

Most of us at one time or another have probably read this novel — which recently was cleared of legal restrictions to be made into a major Hollywood movie. Leonardo DiCaprio is set to star, with Sir Ridley Scott directing.

DiCaprio’s character is labeled as a “savage” — someone who lives on a “natural” reservation that’s sort of off-grid and separated from the bizarre cities created by Huxley. He ventures into one — becomes a celebrity because of the way he lives — and then escapes to become a lighthouse keeper. Awesome, right? It reads better than it sounds.

I think this kind of movie gels with what DiCaprio was showing us in The 11th Hour — especially humanity’s continued march away from nature. Expect a few giant warnings on our potential future in this one.

Check out the full synopsis here.

Why we SHOULDN’T genetically ‘disenhance’ animals

Creating bandaid “solutions” to ethical problems we’ve created doesn’t address the issue at hand

What you can do if live exports disturb you

The outcry should go further than importation and should be directed at the fact that the animals in question were on their way to slaughter in the first place.
