George Orwell acknowledged his debt to Zamyatin, giving him the inspiration for his famous story "1984". "We" describes life under the regimented totalitarian society of OneState, ruled over by the all-powerfull "Benefactor". "We" is the archetype of the modern dystopia or anti-Utopia: a great prose poem detailing the fate that might befall us all if we surrender our individual selves to some collective dream of technology and fail in the vigilance that is the price for freedom.
