A dystopia is a type of society that is bad, both in terms of its structure and its people. It’s an imagined world where people are dehumanized and have no control over their lives. In terms of dystopia, I think of anarchic societies where there is no law and nobody has authority. In terms of post-apocalyptic settings, dystopia is similar to a lot of things that have happened in the past. There was a time when everything was in chaos due to some event that didn’t go according to plan. This led me to think about what the government could do to prevent the world from panicking.
The concept of dystopia refers to the hierarchy of people who are oppressed and oppressors. In the discussion post that I wrote about this topic, I had initially thought of dystopian societies as generic. However, since this semester’s discussions, my thoughts have changed. During this semester’s discussions, we talked about the different kinds of dystopian societies. One of these is anti-anti utopian, which is a type of society that’s bad. Dystopia is a type of society that’s controlled by the government. This is a society where people are dehumanized, and it’s also the reason why people are being criminalization.
