Dystopia Characteristics Information, independent thought, and freedom are restricted: “It’s a sin to think words no others think and to put them down upon a paper no others are to see” ..... ”The law says that men may not write unless The Council of Vocations bid the so.” pg 17 Individuality and dissent are bad: “We are one in all and all in one. There are no men, but only the great WE, one, indivisible and forever.” pg. 19 “We are nothing, mankind is all.” pg 21. Natural World is banished and distrusted: “Since the council does not know of this hole, there can be no law permitting to enter. And everything which is not permitted by the law is forbidden.” pg 31 Citizens have fear of the outside World: “There lies the Uncharted Forest about which men must not think.” pg 30 “We do not wish to look upon the Uncharted Forest. We do not wish to think of it.” ..... “Men never enter the Uncharted Forest, for there is no power to explore it and no path to lead among its ancient trees which stand as guards of fearful secrets.” pg 48
