Civilization is just a facade and inside each and every human there is the basic instinct of survival, and that drives the savagery within. Everyone is capable of stabbing, shooting, or murdering someone, however, everyone has their own trigger… for some, it might be jealousy or envy and for some, it could be pure anger.
In the article The Fine Line Between Utopia and Dystopia, author Zsanelle Morel discusses the utopian and dystopian themes among popular literature.

In an article, Jetse de Vries writes about the contrast between utopias and dystopias. Additionally, de Vries describes other authors’ tendencies to categorize fictional societies as either utopian or dystopian whereas many of them in reality are a combination of both: “a lot of utopias are basically dystopias in disguise:

“Unless the course of history changes, men all over the world will lose their most human qualities, will become soulless automatons and will not even be aware of it” - Erich Fromm. While many people may take this nihilistic point of view to be the truth, this is not and will not become our reality. There are many aspects of our society that prohibit this future, a future of automatons as Fromm describes.
