In the 21st Century chalenging the system is not possible because the government has too much power and technology is not used to the best advantage making for and even worse future than 1984 and Little Brother. The society has turned out much like Seinfeld's class and continues to become a mixture of that and 1984. Marcus was able to use technology to challenge the system and he was successful in his quest. Society should have taken pointers from Marcus and not Winston, who was not successful. Instead the society choose to travel down a similar path to 1984. The future is filled with so many different ways for the government to spy on people that there is no possible way to rebel even if the people did learn their lesson from Little Brother and 1984. Hopefully society can change the ways of life now, or the future will be dire indeed.
