Are potential dystopian futures better off being discussed and/or written about or simply kept quiet to oneself? To what extent does dystopian science fiction serve as a constructive warning to society as opposed to a how-to guide for those corruptible souls that seek power at all costs? To what extent did Orwell contribute to the creation of the modern surveillance state? If one saw how the present situation could be made far worse and even down right horrifying should one discuss it or write about it? Or would that make those horrible things more likely to come to pass by giving bad actors ideas they might not have otherwise had?
