It is the opposite of a utopia. Such societies appear in many artistic works, particularly in stories set in a future.
Dystopias are often characterized by dehumanization, totalitarian governments, environmental disaster, or other characteristics associated with a cataclysmic decline in society.
Dystopian societies appear in many sub-genres of fiction and are often used to draw attention to real-world issues regarding society, environment, politics, economics, religion, psychology, ethics, science, and/or technology, which if unaddressed could potentially lead to such a dystopia-like condition.
Famous depictions of dystopian societies include:
Man made Global Warming.
R.U.R. (which introduced the concept of Robots and the word Robot for the first time).
Nineteen Eighty-Four, which takes place in a totalitarian invasive super state; Brave New World, where the human population is placed under a caste of psychological allocation.
A Clockwork Orange, where the state undertakes to reform violent youths; Blade Runner in which genetically engineered replicants infiltrate society and must be hunted down before they injure humans.
The Hunger Games, in which the government controls its people by maintaining a constant state of fear through forcing randomly selected children to participate in an annual fight to the death.
Logan’s Run, in which both population and the consumption of resources are maintained in equilibrium by requiring the death of everyone reaching a particular age.
Soylent Green, where society suffers from pollution, overpopulation, depleted resources, poverty, dying oceans, and a hot climate. Much of the population survives on processed food rations, including “soylent green.”
and Divergent, where people must fit into one of five factions based on character traits: Selflessness, Bravery, Intelligence, Honesty, and Peace.
Those people who possess more than one quality are hunted down for fear that they will not conform and that their multi-trait personalities make them difficult to control.
In a phrase those who are dystopian share the delusion shared misery, their shared misery is the we the want “normal people” to conduct their lives.
They focus upon things like immigration knowing our economy is a mess attempting to make it a political hot button to insure more future democrats who will exchange their votes and rights the become indentured servants on Uncle Sam’s Plantation.
Voter ID is anathama to them because unless voting is rigged they know they can’t win.
Members of the progressive/left/ socialists or Marxists you are not Americans.
