Viciously Underestimating Power
It's capable of making anyone stand up and fight a system. I've already written about such a society in my first novel. 1984 was a nightmare novel that showed just how much state dependency can make you weak: what if you relyed on the country so much that you can no longer be provided with your every needs.
I couldn't find a DVD on the adaptation so I bought the book to understand one of the greatest literary masterpieces of all time. Just after I read it I relised how I could make comparisons to our own government as it is today. But I know the sci-fi community is mostly non-politically motivated so I'll leave my point to stand with my book.
