What I have to write is pure speculation. My theories are based on what I read in Huxley's Brave New World, Margaret Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale: A Novel and Orwell's 1984. I do wonder what science and its masters have in store for us in the name of efficient living.
As portrayed in Huxley's book human reproduction was replaced by babies grown in laboratories. I imagine authorities could pass this one off as a way of eliminating illness, disease, birth defects, and neurological disorders and keep a tight grip on maintaining a caste society. How many people would accept this to some degree or other remains to be seen? But the higher caste people portrayed in this book spend most of their free time in a comatose state, so it would be easy to slip by anything presented to them.
As written in Atwood's novel The Handmaids Tale, sex was relegated to an essentially meaningless monthly ritual. The logic behind this was that it eliminated the porn industry, sexual harassment, unplanned pregnancy and other unwanted aspects of sexual activity.
In Orwell's 1984 the Anti-Sex League had a strong membership. Plus how effective would the Two Minute Hate be in relieving sexual and other forms of tension by releasing it on a common enemy.
I would like to see just how much the general public would accept at face value, without questioning, what is being told them.
