Rmh I really don't think that Orwell was prescient. Everything described in his book had already come to pass in states like Nazi Germany. There are others, of course, but that's a ready example.

Huxley was closer to our here and now, I think. Although I really didn't like Brave New World, his argument that we'd be undone by our own triviality rather than force seems to hold water.
