Don Wooten's column in the Sunday paper is enlightening comparing our world to George Orwell's "1984" ("How will modern dystopian tale we're writing end?" Viewpoints).
I would add it's a combination of the Aldous Huxley's book "Brave New World " and "1984".
Huxley, an elitist and eugenicist, envisioned that people would be dosed with "Soma" (insert whatever pharmaceutical drug you like: antidepressant, opiods, tranquilizers, ritallin, et al), in order to make people "happy and controllable" and love their slavery. After all, would you rather be happy or free?
