I’ve always been into fiction. For me it’s always been better and more amusing than the reality. Whenever bored, the made-up world has always helped me pass the time. New people, new structures, new creatures and new roads every time. Well don’t all of us like a good story telling session? Haven’t explored the real world much, but I make up for that in my own creation. While there have been really great places in my mind, there have been equal number of bad ones too. The ones which wake you up at night. The ones which are really good to have adventures in but you wouldn’t really want to be living in. The ones with all the pain and suffering.
As I said I haven’t explored this world much so the vices I’ve seen in this world are just as little. For me dystopia isn’t one where a huge apocalyptic event has wiped out much of our world with very few people left behind surviving the nature’s cruelty. Nor is it the one where there are dead people walking around or some dark super-creature is destroying our earth. If we fall into something dark of that magnitude I believe it’s going to be cause of us. The way the world is today it’s not long before we go back to the old ways.
I feel like everyone these days are interested in showing-off their might. It’s only been a while since we’ve moved on from the bad practices from before. No vice has been totally eliminated. I fear the rebellion is going to come back strong. Major wars, anti-secularism, racism, gender inequality etc are all some of the things we’ve left behind. However, you can feel their presence even now. Though it’s much much lesser now, it feels like this is just the calm before the storm. If that’s the case and the madness lets loose, it’s going to be catastrophic. Apart from these, there’s always a chance of the things that you see in sci-fi movies like a leak of some dangerous virus or some really bad after effect of a major issue like global warming to happen. And what do we do when it all hits us together?
The key to survive any post-apocalyptic or any dystopian world is UNITY. The above mentioned problems are all that divides us i.e the common folks. They are beliefs and practices that make us fight each other. They get to our heads and spread across farther than any virus could. So, it’s important for us to get over these malpractices. ERADICATION. Help each other fight the vices inside us. Promote HOPE and PEACE.
Shit! That just got real serious. I’d like to leave it at that. I know it’s an abrupt ending, but I don’t do serious. Share your views.
Take care Amigos!
