Quiet living

how we are constantly being watched

"People should not be afraid of their governments. governments should be afraid of their people."

This quote, from the movie v for vendetta, was said by the shadowy freedom fighting hero v to the beautiful Evey Hammond. He said this when they were in the shadow gallery, v's underground home, talking about the gunpowder treason and plot that guy Fawkes planned when he tried to blow up parliament, and that v was going to blow up parliament on the fifth of November of the following year. It relates to a dystopian society because the British government of the movie was under complete control over everything and all the people were scared to leave their homes or say anything about the government due to the fear if getting black bagged. Also it can relate to the real world because a lot of people due live in constant fear of the government due to the fact that they are watching. They listen in on every phone call we make see our texts and even access our social media accounts. In reality thought the government should be afraid of its people, we the people have the sole right to take down the government if our rights are not met or are being violated.


Schools are dsytopias

Wake up in the middle of the night.

most times before the rising sun

driving in The dark with no sight

if I miss the bell I'll be done

in some classes we sit in assigned seats

but in some we choose our own

heavey bags hurt backs and feet

fulled with items that are always unknown

we wear a certain blue

crowd together in the halls

some skip with out a clue

the schools gonna call

brajn washing kids in the class

student by student by the mass


Our World

The world we live in today is in some what a dystopia. With all the governments’ lies spies and secrets we don’t know the difference between truth and fiction. Our government, whom which we love, lies to us all the time, they constantly watch us without us knowing, and keep things from us to keep us under control. This definitely is a dystopian world we live in.


The government today lies to us citizens about most to all things that go on in and outside our country. Though most of the stuff is true they do get a lot of facts wrong and things “mixed” up. They Photoshop pictures of soldiers doing heroic things and other things like that for magazines and news articles to brainwash the people into thinking we’re doing good or someone is attacking us. So that generations of people grow up with the strong beliefs the government have branded into their brains. As an example think of a terrorist in your head what does he look like? Most likely a man in a wrapped head dress with a long beard is the image you came up with. These are some of the lies they want you to believe and see to keep us under control.


Now when I say we are always being watched I mean that in the since of in more than one way or the other we are. We’re listened to every time we pick up the phone, monitored on our social media pages and if you are a big enough concern to the government you’ll be followed and watched at all times. We agencies specially designed to monitor us; the nsa monitors all phone calls made by any phone in the us or any phone they want. Anything you put online is seen and monitored by these agencies. Making sure obscene things and events aren’t happening outside of their control. What happens when things go beyond their control? They send specially trained men in the watch you and in the worst case take you out, and I don’t mean to dinner. So always mind what you say and who you say it too, they’re watching.


The biggest dystopian thing in our world today is the secrets they keep from us. Like area 51 does it exist? We don’t know. Will they tell us? No they won’t tell us to keep whatever is going on there secret and out of the eyes of the people. They keep so much from us and do so much we don’t know, and people don’t see why people fear the government. They keep us dumbed down so they have control we need to know what’s going on out there so we can adapt and grow we can’t just stay in the same place in the dark forever. They should stop the secrets before they people decide we want to know and find out.


If you think the world is a nice perfect place think again. We live in a dystopian world, we’re watched, told what to think, and lied to constantly. We definitely live in a dystopian world.

Gorilla Zoe Lost ft. Lil Wayne & Ebony Love by Ebony Love Music

Lost

The song lost by gorilla zoe featuring lil Wayne is a perfect dystopian song. The song is about a man walking around lost, asking questions to leaders or the government and they give him no straight answers. Just like in 1984 the party doesn’t answer the questions of the people, they also lie about everything they do tell them it’s all fabricated. Also in the song he talks about how they gave him a cigarette and he’s smoking his cancer then he drinks away pain. In 1984 they rationed cigarettes and gin to the people to keep them mellow and happy. So you could say the song is about Winston and how he’s finally seeing how corrupt his world is. Finally realizing he’s just wondering around listening to people who tell them nothing but lies and not answering the questions they ask. Seeing that after years of being rationed cigarettes, gin, and boots that he lives in a dystopia just like the man in the song lost. This song is a great comparison and theme song for the book 1984, both display dystopian society qualities and how the leaders don’t tell you anything so you just walk around hopeless confused and lost. It also refers to gong insane like obrian told winston he was insane even though he was really sane and seeing the party for what they really are.

Lyrics

Walking around looking for a way
But no one tells me which way to go
I’m caught up in a world
A labyrinth, a maze
Where yes men could easily be known
I ask them no questions
They give me no answers
Following the wise
But they’re walking in pampers
Give me a cigarette
Smoking my cancer
Drink the pain away
But I still have no answers

[Hook - Gorilla Zoe]
I’m lost on a road
Don’t know which way to go
I’m losing my mind
Losing control…
Of the wheel and I’m swerving
On and off the road
I’m lost on a road
But survival is a must
Don’t know who I can trust
I’m living in a rush
I don’t understand this fuss
My brain is about to bust

[Chorus - Gorilla Zoe]
I think I’m losing it
I might be losing it
I just might lose
Am I losing my mind?
And I’m so confused I don’t know what to do
And I need a clue before I run out of time
Am I losing it?
Am I losing it?
I think I’m losing
I’m losing my mind
Am I losing it?
Am I losing it?
I think I’m losing
I’m losing my mind

[Verse 2 - Lil Wayne]
I- I- I’m a need counseling
I lost my mind and still haven’t found it
I used to be so well-rounded
But now I tiptoe on Hell’s boundaries
F- F Baby aka crazy
Trapped in a maze, therefore I am amazing
Glock be the dot, I’m just a patient
And even with navigation
I’m lost on a…

[Gorilla Zoe & Lil Wayne]
I’m lost on a road
I… I… I don’t know what’s wrong with me
But… but I’m a keep that Styrofoam with me
The Styrofoam, Styrofoam, Styrofoam
I’m lost on a road
And I don’t know what’s wrong with me
Gorilla Zoe on the song with me
He must be gone with me

[Chorus - Gorilla Zoe]
I think I’m losing it
I might be losing it
I just might lose
Am I losing my mind?
And I’m so confused I don’t know what to do
And I need a clue before I run out of time
Am I losing it?
Am I losing it?
I think I’m losing
I’m losing my mind
Am I losing it?
Am I losing it?
I think I’m losing
I’m losing my mind

[Verse 3 - Gorilla Zoe]
I’m making this money
Just to go spend it
Living the good life
Hope nobody ends it
But who are you kidding?
Hey, who are you lying to?
You know if they want you
Best believe they will find you

[Hook - Gorilla Zoe]
I’m lost on a road
And there’s no one to talk to
There’s nowhere to run to
I’m going in circles
I’m talking to myself
Got me blazing this purple

[Chorus - Gorilla Zoe]
I think I’m losing it
I might be losing it
I just might lose
Am I losing my mind?
And I’m so confused I don’t know what to do
And I need a clue before I run out of time
Am I losing it?
Am I losing it?
I think I’m losing
I’m losing my mind
Am I losing it?
Am I losing it?
I think I’m losing
I’m losing my mind

Colored shirt rally

Saturday, Jan. 25th, 3:30pm

255 E Paces Ferry Road Northeast

Atlanta, GA

The color shirt rally is a rally of the people against the government trying to tell us how we should look, act, and believe. Wear all different colored shirts the represents who your are and the you won't let the government tell you what to be or what to think. There will be speeches given by hipsters on how we all should aim to be a little bit more different and music of all cultures to signal that we are all different and will not give in to what the government wants.


Mini Dystopia trends in todays world.

A mini dystopia that most people wouldn't even think is a dystopia is school. In schools we say the pledge every morning, transition by the sound of a bell, and gather for events all dressed alike or in the same color. All these trends are like a mini dystopian society. We all wear certain colors like blue to football games and meet before like a party rally in the book 1984. We have to get up early to go there to transition at the sound of a bell and say the same pledge every morning since you an remember. We all have to have the same belief in our school or have school pride. In which some like in the 1984 see past al the lie and see how corrupt the system is and try to rose against is and get shutdown no problem. These are just some of the many ways we have mini dystopian societies in todays world.
