A Modest Proposal
I think it all started when I used to live in New York when I was a little kid. Every year there would be a carnival that came to the church I used to go to and I never was able to go to it because my mom always had something planned to do already. One year when I was about 6 or 7 years old my dad was able to take me since I never went. Of course the first thing I wanted to go on was the Ferris wheel because it looked so cool, and how it was so tall in the sky and you could see over all the buildings. Well after standing in line for probably about 20 minutes I finally got to get on the ride. It was me, my sister and my stepsister all in one seat, since we were the only ones that wanted to go on the ride. Once we got on the ride and we started slowly going to the top in my head I’m thinking this is so awesome I get to see everything, but once we got mid-way my heart started beating so fast and I started hyper ventilating. All I could do was look at the ground and the first thing that popped in my head was what if I slip out and die, and before you know it the ride stopped. I had no clue what was going on and I literally almost started tearing up and also my flip flops almost fell into the middle of the Ferris wheel. We were all up there for a good bit of time so I thought that the ride got stuck, while I’m still sitting there with barely any air to breathe I started saying I’m going to die up here. Besides that the seat carrier thing that we were in was shaking back and forth once the Ferris wheel stopped moving, and when I thought things couldn’t get any worse my flip flop almost fell down in the middle of the ride. Luckily I got it back on before it started moving again and I immediately got off and said that I’m never going back on another Ferris wheel again. If there was one person that I would put in my situation it would probably be my uncle because he makes fun of me because I’m afraid of heights, well when I was younger.

A Trend in Society that is Dystophia
In the world we live there are many different things that can be seen as dystopian. With those little things society thinks that it is so cool to do, and that if people know you do those certain things you may be known as popular among your friends. It’s the stupid things that can get you locked up or maybe even killed, but no one cares because if your friend does it then you are going want to do it to. Some examples might be underage drinking, smoking marijuana, or being in a gang. For some mistaken reason people, especially teenagers think that it’s okay to do these kind of things knowing that it’s illegal. One reason that seems to be very popular nowadays is underage drinking. Underage drinking is when any person under the age of 21 drinks alcohol. Usually the people who drink alcohol underage don’t care about anything like their grades, they might be stressed, or they just do it because they think that it’s cool. In most cases you will find teens drinking at parties or whenever there with a lot of people. This is dystopia because society believes that if you drink underage then you will become cool and have a lot of friends. When in reality if you drink underage then you are just a low life that has nothing better to do. This is just one example of dystopia, there are many other different examples only because this world is corrupted in a lot of ways.
Why the song Mad World relates to 1984
The song “Mad World” by Gary Jules resembles the novel 1984 in many different ways, it may also be seen as a theme song for this book. For starters in 1984 the books shows you how corrupted their world is. Also they show you how everyday they do basically the same thing and if you try to do anything different you might be seen as committing a crime. One reason how this song could a theme song is because of the title “Mad World”. Right there in the title explains the book in two simple words. The title of the song resembles the book because that’s the kind of world that Winston was living in, having to look over his shoulder every second to see if there is a telescreen somewhere or if the thoughtpolice was following him. One line that really makes this the perfect theme song is the very first line in the song “All around me are familiar places, warn out faces, warn out faces”. That line represents how every day in Oceania they do the same thing, go to the same places, and see the same people. In that world there is nothing that will make you feel different from anyone that’s why this song can be used as a theme song for 1984.
