Abstract

It may seem odd to consider dystopia-an imagined place where everything is negative/bad-alongside religion. Yet, the attempt to transform the ideals of faith into a way of living is actually readily distorted by the dystopic genre, where frequently a minority dictates the rules of society and attempts to force them on others.
