From YouTube: Mike Wallace Interviews Aldous Huxley (1958)

In this interview, Aldous Huxley does not talk about Brave New World, but rather about a series of essays he had just finished on democracy. What is fascinating about this is that he discusses things and developments he expects in the future, which, from our perspective either came true or we see occuring today. Huxley also talks about how an authoritarian might take over the US using propaganda in a different way than Hitler used to take over Germany.
