Defining Dystopias

Dystopias are frightening places that people should avoid. The word “bad” is used to describe a place wherein people are subjugated and have no personal freedom. They are also discriminated against due to their age, IQ, or sex. There are various places in the world that are regarded as more dystopian than others, but no place can be considered truly utopian or dystopian. Although our world isn’t a completely utopian and dystopian society, it still has aspects that are considered to be dystopian in nature. These include the monitoring of citizens, the division of people based on their abilities, and the war between class and power. In the modern world, this violence has recently been linked to the police brutality against African-Americans.

There has been a vast number of people who have been killed by police officers. The reason for this is that most of these people were unarmed, and many of them were African-American men, children, and women. One particular example is Alton Sterling, who was shot and killed by police in Baton Rouge. The attack on police officers was unwarranted as they had already restrained the suspect. In response, various violent incidents against law enforcers have been carried out. These include the ambushes of police officers in Dallas and Baton Rouge. At this point, the number of casualties caused by these attacks has raised the possibility of a civil war.
