Neil Postman utilizes parallelism inference and metaphors to clarify and justify his view that Aldous Huxleys predictions of the future in Brave New World is more accurate than George Orwells views in 1984 Postman uses parallelism to unquestionably lay out Huxleys and Orwells predictions Postman clearly states What Orwell feared What Huxley feared to contrast the two authors prophecies In doing this he is able to show each authors point and prove Huxleys correctness in thought Postman states Orwells prediction then volleys with Huxleys counterpoint By positioning Huxleys thought after Orwells Postman places a larger emphasis on Huxleys ideas He gives the impression that Huxley is correcting Orwells foretelling Not once throughout the entire essay was Postmans own opinion ever said and yet it still comes across that Huxley was the true prophet Through inference Postman demonstrates rather than tells Huxleys superiority Postman also uses metaphors to give aesthetic appeal to his writing The image of roots brings to mind something that has taken hold and has a sense of permanency as does democracy in America Huxley fears the future will bring too much information and therefore the truth will be drowned in a sea of irrelevance Drowned in a sea gives the impression of there being too much of something and losing sight of its true importance Postmans writing contrasted Huxley and Orwells views with the employment of parallelism inference and metaphors He clearly and accurately was able to list the main points of each authors prediction and through the use of inference imply Huxleys exactness in his chilling predictions of the future
