What interests me the most about dystopias is how they start off as celestial places or ideas and sudden tragic events occur and or relationship outcomes turn to heartbreakers and even death. The Hunger Games is a great example of a utopia turn to a heartbreaking dystopia. I think it is interesting how the characters in the story don’t see the disadvantages of other so called “utopian cultures”. Like in the hunger games how the Capitol were trying to recruit people by “selling them lies” like saying they would give them resources and other goods for the recruitment of people. I love how their plotlines suddenly change and end up resulting in a heartbreaking matter or casualty. I also love how the dystopian is “slept on “throughout its plot. In Little Brother we are reminded often of the hazards of an gradually digitalized world, where an inflow of data is kept on record by the government, and is accessible to those who are smart enough to get past whatever security was put in place, but also to show the young adults reading, that this is maybe how our society might end up in the future. We are becoming gradually digitalized and the options of this are limitless, but there is a high potential for abuse of this whether from a bossy government or very sneaky hackers thinking what they are doing is for the right reason. Early in Homeland, Marcus has the opportunity to work for a politician along with being given information about the government that could bring the government a lot of dilemma. The story focuses on the moral dilemma of whether Marcus should release this information. Where Little Brother focuses on a course of action if problems do ascend with an increasingly tech attaching culture.
