I couldn't be bothered searching. Wikipedia's my homepage. I'm just too lazy.

I think we're more likely to develop into the world of Brave New World.

I sure hope not, but I bet it will.

I see a mix between the two. I think the control over individuals will be less overt- as it is in BNW- but the idea of the thought police isn't very far fetched.
I see us tending towards the world of 1984 but, as in the book, it would take a large event (he used nuclear/chemical war) to create all aspects.

Already a good way there.
12 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Tuesday 1/20/09 - 6:36:22 PM EST (GMT-5)
I think it's possible.

I certainly hope not - but when I read the book I could certainly see some similarities developing between our world and the world of 1984

we get closer every year to the world of that book
