I’ve always loved dystopian worlds, for as long as I remember.  It’s intriguing to see the world redrafting to an “ideal” state… and then watch it fall apart.  Over the years I’ve fallen in love with dystopian novels (Fahrenheit 451, Feed, The Hunger Games) and movies (The Island is my absolute favorite, but themes from The Matrix have stuck with me just as strongly) and as I get older, I find… I’m still not sick of this genre.
