The Fiction Thread (General)

1984, Animal Farm, Brave New World are obvious ones.

I'd also include Lord of the Flies. The point of LotF was that the devil and demonizing are more important than God in terms of controlling a society.

The thing about the rise of Science/Empiricism is that it's killed off God. You can say that religions are corrupt but the actual Gods they were meant to be based on are usually benevolent, ethical concepts.

If you remove them from society then you're left with the demonizing we've seen by the science community as the main controlling force.
