I think it also normalizes the idea of grinding authoritarian poverty for the masses and exclusive wealth for the Elites.

It people see something on the telescreen enough, it becomes normal and acceptable to them.

True that. How many other hidden messages are there in these productions that have yet to be uncovered?

The hive conscious mind seems to operate as an unconscious entity in our current stage of development, which is what The Powers That Be seems to have figured out, making it easier to reprogram the mass mind using various types of media: news, movies, television series, "radio" and commercial advertising.
Truth appears in many forms. Find those that resonate with you.

I took sci-fi like this and William Gibson, that I mentioned, as an exploration of what possible futures might be like. Most of the times they would be nightmarish to live in but make entertaining stories. For one thing they show how reliance on tech and the increasing inclusion into a lifestyle and actual physical being, reduces that persons humanity. As an example was the old Cyberpunk PRG dealing with cybernetic implants. Each bit of tech that you added to your character cost a proportionate amount of humanity depending on how obtrusive or truly alien the device was. You could have full on cyborgs with the morality and personality of a toaster with gatlin guns on it.
