Yes, I agree. It's not like writers and movie makers dictate how the future will be. I think they work more towards the modeling of the collective unconscious, slowly convincing people to accept certain themes and ideas that are likely to become a reality in the future. Subtle and well crafted propaganda.
In MGS2's case, if you pay attention, the story leads you to think that the idea of a powerful Artificial Intelligence taking over every political and human decision, is not only inevitable, but also not as bad as it sounds. I've seen and studied that well-known Codec conversation between Raiden and Colonel Campbell, and, in my opinion, it's guided to make you embrace that idea. I have the feeling Death Stranding will be just like that or even worse.
a man fighting them, he kills him because his methods will lead to innocent death. And then dedicates his life to fighting them.
