I started to awaken myself back in the eighties after reading the book Neuromancer....a dystopian future where corporations own everything. Coined
the term "cyberspace". Started the Cyberpunk movement, which was topped off by Snowcrash, a dystopian future where the US has dissolved into
hundreds of separate nations or "burbclaves" with their own laws, and, once again, corporations own everything. Predicted the Internet to a much
more detailed degree, coined the term "avatar".
Everyone should read both these books. I regard them as some of the best ever written. The scary part being it was over twenty years ago, adn they
pretty much nailed it.
Also pretty much anything by Phillip K. Dick did a good job of predicting the dystopian future of corrupt govts we are experiencing now, and he was
writing back in the fifties and sixties. Scary stuff, actually.
