Me and Nasty

Aldous Huxley said, 
I like being myself. Myself and nasty.
What did he mean, "myself and nasty"?  

First, this quote is an excerpt from Brave New World; a dystopian story, covered in summary in the Spark-Notes, the video link below.  

Brave New World - Spark Notes Summary

Well, that is/was much information; more than necessary to understand how or why one enjoys or at least is comfortable with being "NASTY". 

Being "NASTY", is perhaps being self-indulged; that is, doing anything and everything to please yourself, to momentarily satiate your passions, pleasures, however fantastical or false the stimuli, the sense of it.   

Life is, after all, about getting everything that you can whether by "honest means" or otherwise.  The world revolves around you and thus, it your right to seize it however...

It matters not how you get it as long as you get it.  It matter not whom or what it costs, but only that you get what you want, momentary though it be!   The costs, however measured, are irrelevant in view of your NASTY.  
"To Hell with the rest and what's best.  I am in it for me".
