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.
