Time travel in Wells' allegory is itself a metaphor for vision into the future of evolution and a warning that human species could fall prey to catastrophe rather than build ever new and better engines of progress. If we didn’t use a significant amount of land mass, there’d be massive starvation, so that’s the alternative. In the past, modifying the genomes of crop plants was accomplished by selecting seeds from those individual plants that produced the most grain, were most resistant to diseases, or were most tolerant of environmental stresses (e.g., drought).

In 1984 it was bewildering (and it's the first half of a pair, the second of which was never even published)but with the advent of wikipedia the idea of 'Cultural Fugue' and 'General Information' as a covert system of control are more graspable. (In the opening section some kind of ultimate Kindle is used as a tool of slavery, and people have books chained to themselves as fetishistic signs).
