    Default Dystopic Daydreams...


    noun
    noun: dystopia; plural noun: dystopias

    an imagined state or society in which there is great suffering or injustice, typically one that is totalitarian or post-apocalyptic.










    They come in all shapes and sizes. A vast ravaged cityscape under a perpetual haze of pollution both literal and metaphorical. Walled mega cities, obscuring the skies, while uncivilized wilds await as an ever ready punishment. Because in Dystopia, safe is a darkened dream, and hope is a four letter word...

    Lots of books, comics, and movies have done a lot of things with dystopia over the years, what are some of your favorites? Why do you think they worked? Do you think any are more or less realistic?

    These darkened day dreams delight and devour our imaginations. Let's dream of electric sheep together...


    With all due respect,
    The Cat.

    I am the Cat who walks by himself; and all places are alike to me...
    I let the melody shine, let it cleanse my mind, I feel free now.

    A globalized government doesn't have to be dystopian. It could be a socialist utopia. As far as "Big Brother," I prefer something a little more gender neutral, or at the very least non-patriarchal.

    La. This isnt so much about arguing the merits of what makes a dystopia; as one's dystopia is anothers utopia and others still see neither as ideal. This is more about describing your ideal, a sort of: if you had to pick a misery, describe your preferred company if that makes sense? And as Far as Big Brother goes, I would rather be an only child, but It's not my term and not liking it wont make it not be a thing, so until the next big thing falls in to fashion...

    In any case I find your idealism fascinating, and you're certainly welcome to play the game... ^_^

    Would you like to make it a medium for just $10 more?

    What a bargain.

    Sometimes I imagine that theme parks like Islands of Adventure, Disney, etc are little experiments; and decades in the future, that's the world. Divided into little mini themed ecosyatems. Countries are nothing more than theme parks tourists visit to act out various fantasies. The Las Vegas Desert is post apocalyptic land, Australia has Thunderdome. etc etc. It starts to get more horrifying the more you realise how easy this could happen, but over all, I'm fairly certain people would go along with it. Dystopia is a long con kiddos.

    Is Ne-one else seeing what I'm seeing?
    Okay, I'll stop. For at least 3 days.
