I think being optimistic is always a good way to try to turn a situation around. Being pessimistic about the situation will keep you stuck because you’re constantly having a negative point of view which slows you down about creating solutions. For the question is utopian thinking key to overcoming dystopia, I am not too sure about that. Due to the fact, that didn’t the utopian thinking create the dystopia in the first place. With that being said, I do not believe it is the key but it is an aspect. The writer discussed ideologies and how they can affect a person’s perception of life. This made me think about last week’s blog post about religion being used to overcome a dystopia. Which I still think is key aspect.
