The Two Babylons

The two Babylons are 1984 and Brave New World.

Each lives in the shadow of the other.

Brave New World says “beware 1984”

and 1984 says “beware Brave New World”.

1984 is the justification for Brave New World

and Brave New World is the justification for 1984.

The Cold War between the two Babylons

did not end with the collapse of the Soviet Union.

Perhaps it will never end.

But the real choice is not between 1984 and Brave New World.

It is between God and Babylon.

“For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?”

Mark 8:36
