What comes to your mind, when you think of a dystopian universe? What do you think? is it Dali-esque surrealist landscapes or is it a real world like ‘The Handmaidens Tale? However, As per the view of late British academic and cultural theorist Mark Fisher, we live in a dystopia, which is undesirable and frightening.

In 2015,  the term ‘boring dystopia’ designed by Mark Fisher and he refers to the subliminal coercion that abounds in a capitalist society. It is subtle, in fact, that if you are not observing, you might not recognize it is happening.
