COMMENT POSTED TO A REVIEW OF HOMO DEUS IN THE GUARDIAN

We are all being reduced by government to a herd, each member branded and measured and with our movements closely followed.
It is not our machines alone responsible, but it is the establishment which controls the machines and sets their tasks.
George Orwell's 1984 is going to seem kind of silly within a century.
