We live in a world where dystopian societies with coming of age stories are all the rage. Why is this? Is this where we’re headed? Do we desire a story to usher in the change in society? Do we long for a time and place that we could survive as a dysfunctional human? Or are we just looking for an interpretation of the struggle we face everyday but feel too mundane to comment on? There is nothing unrelated blue about these stories, there’s an outside oppressive force, a willingness to overcome, the occasional eye candy. But what is lacking is the realization that there may be a world like this in a short amount of time from now and we are all ill prepared to handle it.
