I’ve been fooled many times at peoples meaning of the word Dystopia. Some people think that Dystopia is a fun place, a technological future. Others think it’s a great wonderland with no rules. The truth is actually pretty dark. Utopia is paradise on Earth, a place in which you are at complete peace; Dystopia is the exact opposite. In a Dystopian world, there isn’t order, there is struggle, and the environment has changed drastically. The definition of Dystopia is: an imagined place in which everything is unpleasant or bad. Typically this is in a totalitarian or environmentally degraded one.
What Are Some Dystopian Examples?
Some movies do a good job of depicting a realistic version of what a dystopian place would look like. Mad Max is probably the best example. It’s a movie that takes place in the desert and features many people in a race for survival. Another good example would be in the world of Hunger Games. The kids in Hunger Games were sent to harm opponents to win the tournament for their section while only surviving on rations.
The point of this article is to spread the truth about what Dystopia actually means, because it’s one of the most misinterpreted terms i’ve ever come across. It’s definitely not something to fantasize about (like i’ve seen others do). On the flip side, throughout history there has been some Utopia’s created in ancient civilizations. This might’ve been due to the 1516 book “Utopia” by Thomas More.
