Question #187250

Comparing the Utopian and dystopian views of Technology according to Street (1992) which one in your view is more applicable to your society? Give at least three reasons for your answer. 

Expert's answer

Utopia: A place, state, or condition that is ideally perfect in respect of politics, laws, customs, and conditions. This does not mean that the people are perfect, but the system is perfect.

Dystopia / Anti-utopia: A dystopia is an imagined universe in which oppressive societal control or an apocalypse has created a world in which the conditions of life are miserable, characterized by human misery, poverty, oppression, violence, disease, and/or pollution.

The view that is more applicable to my society is the Utopia because;

  1. Citizens embrace social and moral ideals. Individuality and innovation are welcomed.
  2. The society evolves with change to make a perfect utopian world.
  3. A figurehead or concept brings the citizens of the society together, but not treated as singular.
