Well... On the plus side, the optimism of Star Trek says that WW3 will start in 2026 leading to nuclear devastation, famine, and all that optimistic stuff. So something to still look forward to?

I always question whether Brave New World should really be classed as dystopic. I may have missed some key points when I read it years and years ago, but it seems as good a way of running things as anything we've tried so far.

The author meant it to be repellent, but he might have had a privileged experience and dizzyingly rosy view of real life.

For anyone whose read Niven's Inferno, we're in that place in purgatory where you can look at any place in the universe you want via a window, with the pub being the window.
Yeah just don't look over there....

1984 is also the best year of G.I.Joe comics (issues 19-30).
Number 19 was when I started reading.

back onto the thread topic, I still remember being told there was a 90s Mack Bolan novel that predicted we’d run out of fossil fuels and World War III woukd have started over it by 2006.
