Furthermore, I believe a dystopian world is where all the people do the same thing. No one is different. They all have a similar life because the government controls what they do and makes decisions for them. Also, in an imperfect world, you do not feel accepted. You cannot express your feelings to anyone
Brave New World introduces an utopian society where it is depicted that everyone is civilized and perfect, but actually turns out to be a dystopian and savage society towards the end of the novel. The author of Brave New World, Aldous Huxley, tries and proves how an utopian society would fail to ever happen as he introduces two different cultures and societies in the novel and leaves the readers to compare both of them to figure out which one is the more sane and civilized environment. Huxley was able to achieve his purpose of displaying in his novel that an utopian society would never cease to happen as in reality it becomes a dystopian world. The main purpose of the novel by Huxley, is that the development of technology and our future into becoming an utopian world would be a lack of success as the main things in the novel such as cloning, soma, and The Controllers prove how really “civilized” the society was in the ending of the novel. Mustapha states, “Call it the fault of civilization.
Later he decides to free the world of collectivism by conquering it and destroying collectivism (104). He believes collectivism is the greatest evil of all, coming to this conclusion after finally himself, his “true” self and not the self society wants him to believe is himself. He values himself so much over the rest of society he sees himself as the rightful ruler of the world, free of rules and untouched by laws. His sense of self is inflated so high that he eventually chooses to free himself, and others of collectivist
Both are worlds are different in comparison. First of all Jonas’s world, in THE GIVER, In that world has no freedom to choose, no love, or color, the government has more control over their world. But In the book the Giver says that “ he has love for Jonas like he did for Rosemary”(Lowry 96). Imagen a world where you could not love the one you choose. That would be horable.
Both societies were ruled by a dictator that took away their freedom. In Harrison Beregeron’s story, everybody was equal. Nobody could be different from anyone else. If you were beautiful or better than anyone else they would put masks on your face. Everyone had to wear handicaps on their body if they walked differently or did anything differently from anyone else.
They believed that because people are instinctively selfish, that people would have a hard time coexisting in a land where all people were supposed to be treated equal. Though the government was created to aid the people, it was also established to teach the people how to “live properly”. The fact that the constitution was written in the mindset that people needed to be, in a sense, controlled is was and remains a controversial topic. Many view the constitution’s favor for the rich, white, and male property owners was not so much of an “easier way to unify a nation” but more of a list of who it was going to be more desireable to govern. These facts aside, in order to instill equality to a newlywed nation, the people were given some basic human rights and the power to choose who was going to represent them in order to still make sure that the people were still the basis of the new government while still having control over them.
The Prime Directive In the novel Anthem by Ayn Rand the society that she portrays lives under one injunction, or prime directive, for everyone to be equal. There are numerous rules and controls instituted to help keep the citizens’ in order and while some of them seem to be beneficial, others are constricting the basic rights that every person should have. The one thing that all of the rules do share in common is the restriction of a person's freedom, individuality, and life in general. Ayn Rand knew that by writing this novel, it would spark many conflicting views about equality and liberty in today's world. To start off, the rules exist to keep every person in the society equal to all of their fellow men and women.
The story “Harrison Bergeron”, portrays what kind of world the author, Kurt Vonnegut anticipates in the future. He illustrated that people should not try to enforce equality, ultimately because it results in a dystopian society. For instance, by altering beauty, intelligence, strength and weaknesses, the government thinks that people can become more equal. As a result, “Nobody was smarter…better looking…stronger or quicker than anybody else” (Vonnegut 1). It is normal to be born different from others.
By taking away sexuality, the government is also taking away individuality, similar to “Harrison Bergeron”. In “Harrison Bergeron”, the futuristic government takes equality to a whole new level: citizens are forced to be completely equal in all aspects. Equality is done by adding physical impediments to the smart, talented, strong, and beautiful, thus making everyone equal. The extreme equality dumbs-down society. Both stories exemplifies what literal equality and political correctness does: dumbs down society and kills any spark of uniqueness.
For example, in the short story, it portrays a society in which everything and everyone is set equal. The government in the story intends for a utopian society, but because of the handicaps they put on people to prevent one another from being better in any way, causes it to be a dystopian society.
