A Song & A Book #32

Today’s Song Is;

Oh, secret soul that burns inside
No forced control can make you hide
Open wide /…/

For every heart there burns a flame
To light the soul and make you one again
In every heart there looms a voice
We’ll have our day

And The Book I Choose For This Song Is;

(seriously, I finished this book yesterday and I realized how this song just fits this book PERFECT)

“This is a novel of the future, profoundly sinister in its vision of a drab terror. Ironic and detached, the author shows us the totalitarian World-state through the eyes of a product of that state, scientist Leo Kall. Kall has invented a drug, kallocain, which denies the privacy of thought and is the final step towards the transmutation of the individual human being into a “happy, healthy cell in the state organism.” For, says Leo, “from thoughts and feelings, words and actions are born. How then could these thoughts and feelings belong to the individual? Doesn’t the whole fellow-soldier belong to the state? To whom should his thoughts and feelings belong then, if not to the state?” “
