What is the “Torment Nexus” and what book and author is it from?

In: 2

I assume you’re referencing the meme that’s going around. In short, it’s a paceholder for various things and ideas that were described in literature as a cautionary tale but someone thought it actually a good idea.

Examples:
– Mass surveillance, alternative facts (1984)
– Surpressing critical ideas by burning them and their proponents (Fahrenheit 451)
– Giving leaders too much power (Animal Farm)
– Excessive consumerism (Brave New World)
