@y0x3y Authoritarianism, demagoguery, bigotry, and idiocy are all baked into human nature. No victory over them can ever be permanent. We have reached the point in the 4-generation cycle where all of the people who lived through the last cycle (WWII) are gone. So now we get to re-learn it all the hard way. Like we do every hundred years or so.
@ManyAngled i'd say more the first matrix movie + the last jedi rather than any of those other than handmaid's tale

@Azt3c it's kind of like how in wilderness safety you never shout "don't go there!" because they might not hear the "don't"
@ManyAngled They weren't warnings, they were the plan all along.
