Not a Good Place

Dystopia

"Our world is not the same as Othello's world. You can't make flivvers without steel-and you can't make tragedies without social instability. The world's stable now. People are happy; they get what they want, and they never want what they can't get."

  • Aldous Huxley
  • If it were new, it couldn't be like Othello "our world is not the same as Othello's world."
  • Their perfect world is the perfect way to define a dystopian society "People are happy; they get what they want, and they never want what they can't get."

Our Dystopian Society

Modern world has changed in uncountable different ways, the world we live in now would appear completely dystopian to a visitor from the past. A society is dystopian when a society is an illusion of a perfect utopian world. These citizens of the society are controlled by propaganda and are also scared of the out side world. Many say "racism that's present today cannot compare in the slightest to what existed hundreds of years ago." which is true because not many races got along with each other back then but now days, different races are working together, going to school together and also interacting in relationships which is completely dystopian to someone who comes to our world from past. Opposition to same-sex marriage can be seen as a kind of future shock. For many, this is dystopia now. Even people from 90's are amused to same-sex marriages. We don't give it much thought today, but even factory work as seen through the eyes of someone living before the Industrial Revolution would have seemed indescribably nightmarish. If you look closely to factory work now days, it look just like what they show in the dystopian movies, with a lot of people in small area working in line with same uniforms. Not many people had opportunities to work in industries, most people used to work at home and farms, prior to the 19th century. This world is a perfect example of a dystopian society to a person from past because everything is different and strange due to unrealistic technologies and new atmosphere of different people.

GMOs

GMOs are special organisms in which the genetic material has been altered for improvement productivity and product quality. GMOs have raised concerns over their own beneficial in that they are resistant to disease, produce greater yields, and improve the nutrition of foods. I believe that GMOs are harmful to our health, also transgenic crops lead to serious destruction of the environment and also companies which work with GMOs intend to monopolize foods.

GMOs will not be ensured food security unlike proven organic foods which has been eaten for human history. They claim that GM foods can yields medical benefit by injecting a particular genes or vaccine. However, GMOs are only a temporary measure, not the fundamental solution for nutritional improvement of foods and medical benefits. Their own disadvantages far outweigh their own advantages. A study advised precaution because GM foods have not been tested for human consumption and because there is significant evidence of probable harm. GMOs have brought up many harmful effects, GMOs can cause food allergy reactions, indirect and non-traceable effects on cancer rate, unknown effects on human health and malfunction immune system.

Transgenic crops have destroyed our environment and organic farming industry impossible by contaminating organic foods. The resistance genes injected to the crops could easily spread to the ecological system. The changes has resulted birth of super weeds and super insect by spreading the genes to them. GMO crops posted serious risks to the crops which contained ‘plant incorporated pesticides’ killed useful insects and produced the toxin by the plant as it grows. It is impossible to dispose of nuclear waste from a nuclear generator. GM crops have a disastrous effect on organic farming, especially in most important parts of organic crops is keeping its cleanness and lacking of pollution.

GM crops are being forced on the whole world by biotechnology, multi-nationals seeking monopolies for their products. Agriculture in many countries reorganized their own farming industry to increase productivity and tried to change to be the mechanization of agriculture and depended gradually on the petrochemical industry. Companies have made unreasonable profits by herbicide Round up. Roundup Ready Soybeans use 2-5 times more herbicides than non-GM plants. This way, multi-naturals have encroached on the whole world food markets. When all food in the world becomes GM foods or their products, we could not imagine what will happen to human from a point of view of the food problem. The real reason of hunger and famine is the public are poverty, unequal division and limited foods in developing countries. The food problem is not about how yields increase, it is related to the fair distribution of food.

At the end, to prevent GMO, products should be labeled and people should be recognized how dangerous GMO for us. Labeling is consistent with the right to know for consumers. And it is the best way to give consumer a choice to buy GM foods. It is consistent with the right to choose for consumers. This strategy will help prevent monopolism of major companies.

I Have Seen The Future- The Bravery

I Have Seen The Future- The Bravery

Brave New World presents Aldous Huxley’s legendary vision of a world of tomorrow utterly transformed. In Huxley’s darkly satiric yet chillingly prescient imagining of a “utopian” future, humans are genetically designed and pharmaceutically anesthetized to passively serve a ruling order. This song relates to brave new world because it talks about the future and the Utopian world which is what the book is all about. The society in brave new world is a perfect example of a dystopian society which sets perfectly with this song 'i have seen the future' because it talks about the future and also sounds like a new, dystopian song. "

We are faster, faster than pain
We are a nerve ending without a brain
We have evolved, we have no feeling at all
It is a brave new world

These lyrics relate to the book because it completely describes the atmosphere of the brave new world.
