Brave New World is well worth reading, also Animal Farm, which I've always seen as a satire/allegory of Communism EG'"Some Animals are more equal than others"I have read 1984. Am familiar with Brave New World but have not read it.
People ask if the future will be like 1984 or Brave New World, but I would say that it would be like both. The society of Brave New World within the political system of 1984.
To truly cause a change one needs to understand reality. A Cynic could do this if he had a desire to gain power and like a pied piper get the masses to follow in their plans.
I think you're right about the future being perhaps a combination. EG Look at China; it has become less overtly oppressive, allowing people engage in private commerce , and become rich whilst remaining politically oppressive. The UK has been slowly getting more oppressive. Eg It is my understanding that England has more street security cameras than anywhere else on earth. IE one for every 11 people.
