“It is said there are flowers that bloom only once in a hundred years. Why should there not be some that bloom once in a thousand, in ten thousand years? Perhaps we never know about them simply because this 'once in a thousand years' has come today.”
― Yevgeny Zamyatin, We (1924)

That's totally appropriate music for thinking about dystopia. It's one of the cornerstones of my political playlist.

It's a classic for a reason, isn't it? ;)

And like all classics, it continues to be applicable. I often think of it in connection with the current administration.
