Pics Show How Dystopic Our Society Already Is, And It’s Terrifying (70 Pics)

What comes to mind when you think of a dystopian universe? is it Dali-esque surrealist landscapes or is it a more realistic world like 'The Handmaidens Tale.' Well, according to the late Brtish academic and cultural theorist Mark Fisher, we are already living in a present-day dystopia and folks - it is very boring.
The term 'boring dystopia' was coined by Fisher in 2015 and refers to the subliminal coercion that abounds in a capitalist society. So subtle, in fact, that unless you're looking you might not realize its happening. Charlie Booker's Black Mirror is the closest fantasy depiction of this theory, with his episodes questioning how far is too far when it comes to our evolving technology.
 From the poster that reads "Sleep deprivation is your drug of choice. You might be a doer," or a bus passing by with bold black letters stating, "You don't need therapy you just need a new car," the following photos may make you question everything.
