The Dystopian Age of the Mask

 

How Ernst Jünger predicted the ubiquity of masks

 

According to this article the single defining characteristic of dystopian literature is the eradication of all individuality.

    That is some seriously scary stuff but not at all surprising. In times of peril, uniformity and solidarity gives comfort and the powers that be will take full advantage of that with total disregard and lack of empathy for the well being of the individual. "Until they become conscious they will never rebel, and until after they have rebelled they cannot become conscious." George Orwell, 1984
