I write this to plead with you to support Donald Trump’s campaign for president, to beg you to vote for The Conservatives and/or UKIP in upcoming elections, and to vote to leave the European Union. I’m also going to have to beg everyone to vote No in any future referendums for Scottish Independence. This is going to be a controversial stance, especially here on Geek Scot where, while our writers have differing political views, we’ve all been generally Left Wing, supporting SNP/Green/Lib Dem and Yes. It’s a difficult thing for me to say but the fact is, if you can in any way say that you are a geek, we need this, this is what we want, the dream can come true, vote for dystopia!
The fact is this, we all claim fear of dystopian governments and the zombie apocalypse, but let’s all admit it, deep down, they excite us. We desperately want to fight zombie hordes or volunteer as tribute. The fact is, while a health epidemic might happen one day, the zombie virus might just be a little too science fiction to achieve. Yes, I’m afraid you’ll have to give up the dream of having to take the horrifying decision to leave your best friend for dead, as the swarm of undead feast upon his/her flesh. But we can still have a dystopian government, all we have to do is vote our way towards it!
Maybe you dream of fighting in the Hunger Games, perhaps you see yourself as Divergent, perhaps you want to wear a Guy Fawkes mask and fight a tyrannical government. There are those of us who secretly dream of being part of the rebellion, meeting behind closed doors after curfew, but we’ll never achieve it if we keep pushing for left wing government and celebrating equality and diversity. We’ll never be able to sacrifice our obedient lifestyles for freedom and bringing down the government if we don’t first have a government that we need to fight tooth and nail!
The time has come to be honest with ourselves. We lose ourselves in books and movies and graphic novels about dystopian worlds, because secretly, deep down, that’s what we want. But now, more than ever, we can have it! The Tory government can keep screwing the poor and the vulnerable, they can privatise our health service, make it only run for profit. An exit from the EU can give us our chance to tear the human rights act to shreds! Donald Trump actually wants to build walls to keep out the undesirable! We could live in a world where the poor and the rich are segregated in ways we haven’t seen since the dark ages. We could have a world where just being associated with someone who thinks differently is enough to merit being disappeared! We could have curfews and mandatory propaganda screenings. We could have all this horror, submerge ourselves in the dystopian world we long for. All we have to do, is vote Tory, support Donald Trump, say No to making our own decisions, say yes please to oppressing thousands.
We can have it, we can have it soon, for the sake of all geeks and nerds in the world who just want to break their way into the concentration camps; support and vote for the right things: oppression, dystopia, discrimination. We can have it all!
