Can anybody explain this to me in really really simple terms?

That the nightmarish depictions common to most early 20th century dystopian novels are exaggerated should by no means diminish the _________ power of these works, for many of the visions they conjure up are reflected, albeit in less vivid form, in many totalitarian governments today.

“For” means "because". The reason: still reflected in sth...today. The result:sth. in the early 20th century is prophetic. Prophetic is the choice because it include the contrast between the past and now. Apolitical is eliminated because it's just the opposite.

Expert's post
Nightmarish means = very frightening or unpleasant

So, the meaning of the sentence is: even though the description of the dystopian novels could be a little bit exaggerated not means that those scenarios are not so far from the truth.

Those depictions are prophetic: they anticipate somehow the future scenarios.
