Is AI dystopian or utopian? Join Elle Griffin, author of The Elysian, to study Aldous Huxley and the fine line between dystopia and utopia.

Let’s read Aldous Huxley’s dystopian novel Brave New World and it’s utopian counterpart Island and discuss the fine line between dystopia and utopia.

In the former, drugs are used for numbing and self-medication, in the latter drugs are used for enlightenment. In the former, trances are used for indoctrination, in the latter they are used for personal meditation and learning. In the former, contraception promotes promiscuity, in the latter it encourages reproductive choice.

We are reminded that utopia and dystopia exist on a knife’s edge and that the same technology can tilt to one side or the other depending on our intentions. Let’s talk about the line between good and evil and how we can tilt the future toward good!
