Aldous Huxley's Underlying Motives

For myself, as, no doubt, for most of my contemporaries, the philosophy of meaningless was essentially an instrument of liberation. The liberation we desired was simultaneously liberation from a certain political and economic system and liberation from a certain system of morality. We objected to the morality because it interfered with our sexual freedom; we objected to the political and economic system because it was unjust. [my note: At the time he made this remark he had changed his mind - he is explaining his rationale when younger.]
