‘But if you know about God, why don’t you tell them?’ asked the Savage indignantly.

‘Why don’t you give them these books about God?’

‘For the same reason as we don’t give them Othello: they’re old; they’re about God hundreds of years ago. Not about God now.’

-Mustapha Mond and the Savage, Brave New World, Aldous Huxley 1931
