What places in history would you describe as “brave new world”?
By Brave New World, I'm referring to the book by Aldous Huxley where society is very advanced and people can afford to be decadent hedonists without worry of dying.
I've heard Rome's period where they had "orgies" compared to this? Are we living in this time now?
If anyone has some suggestions for book (preferably first hand accounts) for periods like this I would enjoy reading them.
