Excerpt:Â I remember reading a book once by an author named Ira Levin called, "This Perfect Day." It is presented as a work of science fiction, but if I were classifying books, it would be a work of horror worthy of inclusion with Mary Shelley's "Frankenstein" and Bram Stoker's "Dracula.""This Perfect Day" takes place in some artificially perfect global utopia (reminiscent of Orwell's "Big Brother" society) in which uniformity is the defining feature and ethnic differences are abolished. In Levin's creation, there are only four names for men and four for women, and last names are an alpha-numeric code. Everyone eats "totalcakes," drinks "cokes" and wears exactly the same thing â€“ every day. The world is ruled by a central computer called UniComp, which has been programmed to keep every single human on the surface of the earth in check. People are continually drugged by means of regular injections so that they can never realize their potential as humans. They are told where to live, when to eat, whom to marry, when to reproduce and which job they will be trained for.
