By: Alex Raby
A Ray. A. Raby Production Differences Between
Utopian and Dystopian
Societies Examples and characteristics
of Utopian societies. Conclusion Examples and characteristics
of Dystopian societies The Hunger Games involves the dystopian society of Panem, they make a punishment by making The Hunger Games.
Some can be found in today's time, unlike the utopian societies.
They are also, like utopian, widely found in the genre science fiction.
"... apply for release." example from The Giver pg. 151 shows this is a dystopian society where people are killed if they don't fit in.
People in The Giver are placed with tons of rules that they must follow.
The people in the society think they are in an utopian society, but we know that they are not. A Utopian society is - founded upon or involving idealized perfection.
"http://www.dictionary.reference.com" (search utopian) In utopian societies everything is perfect, there is rarely
to no problems in this type of society. Everything is calm and peaceful. This presentation will look at the
differences between
Utopian and Dystopian societies.
It will show you examples of each type of society. Let us begin our presentation. They are futuristic societies most of the time.
They are mostly found within the genre of science fiction.
These types of societies are rarely found within today's time, we might however find them in the future. A Dystopian society is - a society characterized by
human misery, as squalor, oppression, disease,
and overcrowding.
"http://www.dictionary.reference.com" (search
dystopian) As you see there are plenty of differences between utopian and dystopian societies. Utopian is perfect while dystopian is not. Dystopian societies The End I hope that you enjoyed my presentation. Thank you for your time and consideration. "... system of smacks with the discipline wand..." This shows that the society in The Giver uses lashings to discipline children if they don't follow a certain way of their society.
In the book they use, "...precise language..." and if children, like Asher, mess up with their words they receive hits with the discipline wand. This also shows us that this society is dystopian. Utopian societies Dystopian
continued In The Giver, they use, "...sameness..." to make them think that they are an utopian society, but they aren't. Opinion I think that The Giver is a
dystopian society because
they use euthanasia to get
rid of their citizens, they use
sameness so everyone has no
differences, and there is a ton
of rules being placed on the
citizens in the community
in The Giver. (The reason I used red is because it was the first color Jonas started seeing.)
