What I'm listening to: "Love Is a Battlefield" by Pat Benatar


dystopia - [dis-toh-pee-uh] - noun

Definition:
A society characterized by human misery, as squalor, oppression, disease, and overcrowding.

Usage:
The TV series "Lost" could be argued to be about both a dystopia and a utopia (at least, a couple seasons ago when I last watched it).
