Forecasting the future.

In 2048, a descendant of George Orwell will write 2084, a book about a totalitarian society in need of control.
When we have mastered the false memory recipes, we will need to worry about who controls them.
What brakes should be imposed on police, lawyers, advertisers?
More than ever, we'll need to constantly keep in mind that memory, like liberty, is a fragile thing.
