Have you ever read the book "1984" by George Orwell?
If you haven't, then you should consider reading it.
Written 35 years before its dated title, 1984 is a dystopian prediction of what the future holds, which is a lot of tyranny, censorship, Public Surveillance (Big Brother) and war. Orwell explores what used to be England and is now an authoritarian state.
