furoya Image


It is almost synonymous with dystopian (or anti-utopian), but for societies subjected violently and oppressively. It relates to the work of the English writer George Orwell after the Second War, especially his novel "1984", from which concepts such as Big Brother or neo-language emerged as ways of controlling the population. It is widely used to rate situations with some analogy to his description of his worlds.
