Malcolm Jameson: ‘The Anarch’ (1944)
Published in Astounding in 1944, this concerns a rebel against a future totalitarian autarchy, who strikes a deal with the Autarch under which his own role is formalised as the Anarch, acting as antithesis. Out of their engagement a new democracy is born, based on representative democracy. The Autarch decides to run for President. The only real ideological base is classical liberalism, with Mill's On Liberty cited explicitly.

Mór Jókai: A jövö század regénye ["The Novel of the Next Century"] (1872)
In the most significant sf novel (still untranslated) by Hungary's greatest author, airplanes made of a marvellous new material - ichor - serve the heroes, who dominate global communications and trade; "declaring war on anarchistic Russia, they fight the last war of mankind and create eternal peace." (SFE)

the beginnings of rebellion within . . .
