In The Right StuffTom Wolfe describes We as a “marvelously morose novel of the future” featuring an “omnipotent spaceship” called the Integral whose “designer is known only as ‘D, Builder of the Integral'”.

Rand was jevgenlj with the worldbuilding and Huxley feels like he cribbed this entire novel, but goes the distance. The novel opens up with D writing his memoirs of sorts. I wanted the society to win, just because the argument for having freedom was never articulated except in a whiny negative manner.

No privacy, people have numbers for names, they dress light blue uniformsand eat the same food, live in small, sparse apartments, which are transparent. The little-known Russian dystopian novel Love in the Fog of the Futurepublished in by Andrei Marsov, has also been compared to We.
