Dare to Catch Me

OBEY THE LAW....they said...WE ARE FREE...they said.

"Then you have no fear anymore. You're completely free."

V is basically saying most people have fear to stand up for themselves, once you face your fear, you are completely free from that fear. This relate to the dystopian society because most people now are scared to give opinion or stand up for something. I think, now, in our society there are many regulations and people are afraid of certain things that has to do with rules because of the consequence in our society. There are many people that want to take a stand and stop their fear of things. With fear, there is no freedom. Once you past your fear, you are free.

Madness

Blue and White shirts

The Tribe is here

Friday nights with long socks and skirts

The student section is near

Yelling PEACHTREE RIDGE HOE and painted faces

Madness is in the air

Different colors and different racists

From all the thrown powder is nothing but a glare

I'm just rocking me

They are all the same

My green and white tee

Look at them matching so who's to blame ?

When really school is just school

Sometimes i feel like the girl that want to break all the rules

What the World as Become

Dystopia is used a lot in books and in our history, to show how the government can be powerful and controlling and how one person can make a difference and go against the law. The Hunger Games, V for Vendetta, and the article Big Data, Meet Big Brother are all examples of dystopian societies. Usually citizens in a dystopian society never question the government. Our society today is also being controlled by the government heavily and also being brainwashed. For instance being monitored and the government making all of our decisions.

As in the book The Hunger Games, before they get into the arena they are forced to put a tracker in their arm. That way they are able to see their every move. Our society today is also aiming to get trackers for students, for instance in the article, “Don’t Track Me.” The article is about a teenage girl named Andrea Hernandez from San Antonio, Texas who was being issued with a badge attached with a radio frequency identification chip by her high school. Andrea refuse to wear the badge because it violated her civil right on religious grounds. Due to her rebellion, she was suspended from her school. This situation occurred January this year and she was let back in school in August of this year. Andrea's situation is dystopian related because she went against what her school wanted, and she stood up to what she believed in even if there were consequences.

In our society today, our government has a lot of control over the taxes, economy, social welfare, military and social laws. In taxes they take away from our income which affects what we spend. The make economic decision on how much money is circulating in country. Social welfare they decide how much aid they are going to give to people in need or people with government benefits. Socials laws decide who gets married, what substances are legal and how they are able to spy on our technology. The government spying on our technology is a main issue in our society. Many people have no idea that there calls are being monitored. In the article "Big Data, Meet Big Brother," it talks about the new digital age and how its easy for the government to analyze data sets, or every last piece of information in our technology. Everything we put on the computer is hard to dispose of, since everything done online is being stored on a large digital cloud.

Our world has many issues involving dystopian matters. The issues we have aren't as severe as some of the books explaining dystopian society. If our world keeps getting worse then we can head for a real life dystopia and it not be just a novel. Overall, dystopia is a movement to rebel for what they believe in and creating an alliance to support them without regarding the consequences because life is so miserable. Dystopia can result in widespread unhappiness, suffering, and other kinds of pain.

Elastic Heart - Sia feat. The Weeknd & Diplo (The Hunger Games: Catching Fire Soundtrack) by Victor Leoti

"Elastic Heart" (feat. The Weeknd & Diplo)

And another one bites the dust
Oh why can I not conquer love
And I might have thought that we were one
Wanted to fight this war without weapons

And I wanted it, I wanted it bad
But there were so many red flags
Now another one bites the dust
Yeah let's be clear, I'll trust no one

You did not break me
I'm still fighting for peace

I've got thick skin and an elastic heart,
But your blade it might be too sharp
I'm like a rubberband until you pull too hard,
I may snap and I move fast
But you won't see me fall apart
Cause I've got an elastic heart

I've got an elastic heart
Yeah I've got an elastic heart

And I will stay up through the night
Let's be clear, won't close my eyes
And I know that I can survive
I'll walk through fire to save my life

And I want it, I want my life so bad
I'm doing everything I can
Then another one bites the dust
It's hard to lose a chosen one

You did not break me
I'm still fighting for peace

I've got thick skin and an elastic heart,
But your blade it might be too sharp
I'm like a rubberband until you pull too hard,
I may snap and I move fast
But you won't see me fall apart
Cause I've got an elastic heart
[x3]

I've got an elastic heart


"Elastic Heart"

“Elastic Heart” song by Sia is one of the soundtracks for Catching Fire. As we all know The Hunger Games is a dystopian society. This song tells how we keep fighting for peace but can’t get the peace that we want. All around us there is someone watching every move we make, where everything that we do might think is right, but the government thinks we are doing wrong. Any that we stand up for; we get punished for our rights. This song tells that no matter what, love conquers the World without being at war. With love conquering, we might find that peace with society by fighting to the end to become free. The government might think they have control over us but in reality the only one that has control over all is God. The song tells how we will walk through fire to survive on what we believe in.

The government is something that we fear, the song seem to tell us that anything that they do to us, we will stand up. That nothing will break us to get that peace that we want for the world. Also, it talks about how we can’t trust anyone because even the people we might think we trust, goes behind our backs. This goes back to the book 1984 where in Oceania the society is manipulated by the government through destroying trust between people. In the society where Winston lives the government has destroyed the trust between family and friends. For instance, Parsons own daughter had turned him because he left the word God in a poem. So, this goes back to the song how even our own people, we cannot trust. The only way to get what you believe in is to keep fight for your right.


Life as a Dystopia

One of the events that had a major impact in society was the Trayvon Martin incident. Trayvon Martin was a 17 year old African American, who was shot by George Zimmerman in Stanford, FL. On February 26, Martin went to a local store, where he bought candy and juice. On his way back, Zimmerman spotted him and called the police to report him, saying he looks suspicious. Zimmerman was instructed to stay inside and to not approach the person. Zimmerman disregard the instructions. After, neighbors had reported gunfire. Zimmerman had recongize he had shot Martin, and claiming it was self-defense. Zimmerman was released because he had the right to defend himself. As the case spread, thousands of protestors across the country called for Zimmerman's arrest and a full investigation. Thousands of protestors marched to express their displeasure of the decision. Around the U.S. signs were held up to support Trayvon Martin. This event makes it a dystopia because millions of people believe in justice in Trayvon Martin.
