In a famous correspondence between George Orwell and Aldous Huxley, Huxley asserted that while Orwell gave it the old college try, Huxley's vision of the future was the more prescient. He's right, of course; the overt brutality depicted in Orwell's vision is becoming more and more unnecessary in a scientific dictatorship. There's no need for boots stomping on faces forever when diets, injections and injunctions will socialize people into accepting their servitude as not just inevitable but desirable. The acculturation of people to circumstances they ought not to accept is already galloping apace and there's nothing any of you can do to stop it. Forward!
