I can't imagine an economic or political belief system that is more dystopian then libertarianism.

 

It is pretty much fuck 95% of society and give it all to the top...

 

Most of my versions of DYSTOPIA is based on shit like this.

More 'post-apocalyptic' than 'dystopian', I guess.

 

Do we have a post-apocalyptic thread?

We do not. The closest thing we have to it is the ironically defunct "Abandoned Places" thread.

Beeple is quite possibly my favorite artist.

Юнармия (Young Army) - new and fantastically fast-growing (founded two years ago and already 200 thousand members) youth military-patriotic organization under patronage of MoD. Not sure what exactly is dystopian here, but my instincts screams:

What's the MoD? 

Youth paramilitary and ideological organizations are always quasi-dystopian due to indoctrination, but the thing is it's not like Hitler Youth had a monopoly on it. Hell, the Boy Scouts of America could be considered a similar thing, and most political parties have a youth wing. That there are 200,000 sign-ups is definitely concerning, but it's figuring out what for that will tell me if this is something to fear in the future.

This old '95 documentary on Hong Kong's poor gives so much god damn cyberpunk vibes I thought I should share it here. The rampant capitalism, people living in run down apartment highrises, the cramped living spaces, the extreme cynicism, old chinese men gathered and playing a game I don't know. It's a great documentary too.

EDIT:

 

The follow-up is one wjfox posted last page, it's 2010. Unsurprising that things are going worse. https://youtu.be/KQkvI_J8_QI

I just visited Hong Kong. Their mass transit system is extraordinary and beats anything I've seen in America. Moreover, I didn't see a single homeless person or beggar.

I'd imagine the places a tourist in Hong Kong would visit wouldn't really be the most truthful sight of what the city is. Just as when you go to Dubai, and don't really meet the 90% South Asian expatriate population.

Sounds like a utopia where free enterprise and charity saves the day while Big Government is helpless. Belongs in the Utopian Pictures thread.

Big Govt is helpless only because it has been prevented from getting involved. Don't pretend the Govt couldn't solve situations like this if people would allow it. 

 

*Goes to find the Utopian pictures thread because that sounds much more fun than this thread*

 

Edit: Heeeey!
