But also when Mr. Meadowes get arrested, it is a machine, I think the writer wants focus on the missing human touch in this world. We only see each other as objects, we do not see the person inside, and we almost act like machines.

I’m glad I do not live there, it gives me associations to the Soviet Union. I want to see the person who sees me. I haven’t read any texts with the same theme, and I have neither seen Big Brother.
I don not wont anyone to pry in my private life. And I’m not interested in seeing other people pick one’s nose. We are not children who need to be looked after.
