Science Fiction Essay 1 Kurt Swimmer’s movie “Equilibrium” consists of full of culture and Socialization. The movie presented the strong resocialization of Librian society after World War III. This movie displayed a great argument that a moderate measure of the higher aspects of human emotion is needed to maintain our humanity, without the higher aspects (love, hate, rage, desire) we would be reduced to ruthless killers. The Librian Government believed that the emotions are the main factor that resulted the war and banned all the emotion stimulating agents. The citizens are required to inject a daily dose of a drug that suppresses their emotions and any form of disobedience is considered a sign that mores is being broken. The Sanction for the “Sense offenders” is death. The norms of the society are to destroy the arts, music, books and find and kill people who displays emotions. The societal values display ethnocentrism.
