Anthem

by Ayn Rand

Ayn Rand did a pretty good job of presenting a society where individual initiative and expression are repressed to a severe degree, but her portrayal would have benefited by showing why the ancestors of these people rebelled against and eventually tore down the previous civilization.

People just don't wake up in the morning and decide to break machines and turn off the electricity. Why they decided to overthrow their previous rulers and do away with technology is never explained.
