We live in a utopian society but unfortunately people tend to think in a dystopian way. Rather than being thankful for what they have by accepting and enjoying what’s around them, people are starting to become antisocial and harbor less sympathy for those who are not close to them. On one hand a dystopian society is a place or state in which everything is unpleasant or bad, it is usually due to the governments way of rule or the environment they are surrounded with. On the other hand a utopian society is a place or state of things in which everything is perfect. This issue is present in Ray Bradbury’s “Fahrenheit 451”, he centers his story around a dystopian society that is ruled by technology and fears any kind of behavior that indicates
JFK thought that by helping other, people could find success in society. People can not just help somebody and expect success though; they must understand that helping an individual is the right decision. Like JFK said “Not because the communist maybe doing it, not because we seek votes, but because it is right”(Kennedy 4). While Patrick Henry realized people achieved success up until they viewed something such as the painful truth. “We are opt to shut our eyes against a painful truth”(Henry 85).
According to the article “The Madness of Materialism,” by Taylor who says that people today believe that the key to happiness is money or buying things for yourself. The people that say money is the key to happiness is wrong because you can use the money on yourself but it doesn’t make you feel better.

When the attempted creation of a utopia, an ideal place or state that is of perfection, takes place, only one thing typically happens. A promising utopia would be created, but the utopia has its distinctive problems. This would be a place where there are restricted freedoms and a lack of individualism, however there are also the desirable traits of a utopia that leaders of a society strive to achieve. These include an unchanging or even predictable way that things are done, as well as a sense of equality. The cost of having a lack of individualism and restricted freedoms outweighs the privilege of equality and sameness.
The primary obstacle in the way of creating a genuine utopia for the inhabitants of that universe is violent conflict (but then there wouldn’t be too many episodes to air). If they manage to achieve peace and harmony, then the Star Trek universe would offer a truly utopic environment for most people. However, if utopia is judged as an ideal society for all its citizens, then Star Trek would still fall short. This is due to individuals like Offenhouse who are not content with having enough or more than enough and aspire for more. This craving is inherent in Offenhouse; his desire for money and power is actually a game for him, not a means to an end but rather the end itself.
His theories and those who share the same thoughts are not often talked about, as society would rather live on believing in equal opportunity for everyone to obtain some form of success. While there are some who remain outliers to this theory, to Gladwell it makes much more since to think about success as being based on the situations surrounding someone rather than based on their ideals as an individual. Everyone has different ideas of success and how to obtain it so it is nearly impossible for those who truly look deep into it—like Gladwell-- to think that success is a representation of a singular
(AGG) " Once you need less, you have more"- Anonymous (Quotes Native); Materialism takes over people 's lives and makes them want more, but this doesn 't necessarily mean that they are happy with more material. (BS-1) Materialism can be seen through interactions between characters and have become a part of everyday life. (BS-2) Materialism is also a major part of society itself, the people in power want others to have material.

On the other hand, low voter turnout could mean that there is something in the government that needs to be improved. Lipjphards antidote of having a strong democracy is to maximize turnout and it could only be done effectively through compulsory voting. In his literature, he mentions that low over turnout could be a serious problem for the following reasons: (1) democratic legitimacy is questioned and (2) low voter turnout could mean that certain groups vote in greater numbers than other groups. If legitimacy is lost, it could lead to chaotic conditions because when people start to doubt the government, uprising and rebellion could be the very results to this. If certain groups vote in greater numbers than other groups, there could be a gap as to the privileged-citizens and the unrepresented most especially in influencing law makers making governmental policies.
