Looking at alternate futures

We all know somehow deep inside that we are heading towards an Orwellian World. And while most industrialized countries locate their people through surveillance cameras, there are many town and villages in the world, where there is no access to even electricity. Maybe these places will preserve greater freedom of speech over time, if we do not categorize them as tribals and place them in human zoos under googleearth's supervision. The digital divide will provide a divide in cultural freedom. Maybe maybe not. But we can definetly think of some alternatives in the future.
