    I have to agree with Patrick, to some extent. Mostly, in today’s society I see subjects pertaining to Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World.
    But for instance the banning books, as shown in the first cartoon on George Orwell’s “1984”: We have a right wing politician in the Netherlands who is extremely opposed to Muslims. He is saying we shouldn’t be living in a world with Muslim (extremism) and all that, and tries to trash the Quran and it’s teaching everywhere he can get his foot on solid ground. In my opinion that is someone who is scary, and a danger to society.
