Living In A Utopian Dystopia In George Orwell's '1984'
A dystopia is most frequently described as an anti-utopia. If utopia is a world fantasized by optimistic people, a dystopia must be the world imaged by pessimistic people. Author Gormori says, "It seems to me that the proper definition of 'dystopia ' indeed hinges upon a bad system of government which imposes its will upon all its subjects in the name of arbitrarily chosen criteria or 'values '. Whether in crushing the individual the system stages a trial or uses other methods is of secondary importance" (Gormori). Dystopias are ran by nightmarish governments. They are produced so they can steal the integrity from others. In 1984 Winston’s trial was a significant scene. The scene was significant because it showed the effects of a dystopia. The definition of dystopia seems more to be a new upcoming government to aims to destroy the original system and create a system that aims to please the pessimistic people of the world. Dystopian fictions are usually political, exploring certain social issues by setting up a horrific alternative world in which those issues are looked at largely. Many of these fictions present themselves as cautionary writing, as warnings about the consequences of continuing certain policies or behaviors. Dystopias are usually looked upon as sermons because of the horrific message they usually come with
