I know that usually, dystopias are based on a "perfect" society. I think if we got rid of bullying, the world would be way better.
Ugh! Mrs. Bottos wants me to create my own dystopian society?! HOW am I supposed to do that?!
... but wait! Maybe to get rid of bullying, we need to make everyone look similar so we can't pick on each other!
I think a world without bullying would look pretty similar to our world. People would dress the same as they do now...
So our homes would be the same - maybe we'd all live in 2 bedroom apartments that are painted the same color. And we'd all dress the same, too. Jeans, gray sweatshirts, and sneakers for everyone!
Happy Monday!! You look lovely today!
But why would we all live in this gray world? Someone must be in control! We'd be controlled by the "Bully-Free Police" who walk around saying nice things all the time, but really they are controlling everyone.
Now I need a dystopian protagonist... I'm not too creative, so I'll just put myself in the story! I think I would try and defeat the Bully-Free Police by getting my friends and family to see that it's okay to be different!
What a cool dystopia! Of course bullying is TERRIBLE, but I think the lesson of my story is that we all need to be unique and true to ourselves. Removing individuality is not the key to ending bullying!
