The measure of normality
"[...] they are normal only in relation to a profoundly abnormal society.
These millions of abnormally normal people, living without fuss in a society to which, if they were fully human beings, they ought not to be adjusted, still cherish "the illusion of individuality", but in fact they have been to a great extent deindividualized. Their conformity is developing into something like uniformity.
But uniformity and freedom are incompatible."
Thus said Huxley.
