One thing worth noting about Anthony Burgess`s 1962 book A Clockwork Orange, is how prescient it was about a future England of high crime, home invasions and, especially, about how the Government`s response would be technocratic. When New Labour came into office 35 years later, it pursued a largely sci-fi approach to fighting crime, putting up millions of surveillance cameras. If the Ludovico Technique actually worked, I suspect Blair would have used it.
