The power of 80's Mad Max lay in nuclear fears, but the modern one's may lay in it as metaphor for social media.

Think about it: the trolls gangs from nowhere, the celebrities like desert demagogues, your choice whether to join an attack and gain social cachet (the new oil) or keep distant and remain human, however noble the cause and wrong the victim. It's all there...

I expected a post-nuclear apocalypse watching MMII as a kid. Instead we got Berners-Lee's post apocalypse, a touchscreen wasteland.
