Of course we could go back earlier, when theorists were actually still talking about real, political revolution. Things seem to come together in Slavoj Zizek, who’s writings on revolution (even the justification of violent terrorism) are well thought out and linked to the thinkers who came before him.
What they all have in common is a totalitarian government who controls humanity, often through lies about the past and ritualistic sacrifices (Agamben’s Homer Sacer).
Surprisingly, these 15-16 year old heroines (they are mostly girls in YA dystopias) will soon start killing people. Of course, we can’t really imagine any setting that lionizes contemporary heroic rebels (like Anonymous, or Occupy Wall Street) because we are still in the system, we are still controlled by the power structure.
But what all these really reminds me of, as a would-be Milton Scholar, is Satan’s struggle in Paradise Lost. In exactly the same terms and conditions, with much of the same language, Satan seeks a space outside of God’s totalitarian order where he can think and speak freely, make his own choices, and be free. The truth is that widespread belief in a westernized, infallibly benevolent God demands from us a place to put evil and sin. Allowing ourselves to see in Milton’s Satan the exact same revolutionary tendencies that are now accepted and glorified through the popularity of YA post-apocalyptic novels would be to remove that stone, and it is weighted in place by centuries upon centuries of tradition and hundreds of millions of believers.
If you're interested in Christian history and whether or not Jesus really existed, don't pass up my book, Jesus Potter Harry Christ.

About me"I now know thee, thou clear spirit, and I now know that thy right worship is defiance. In 2007, American journalist Alan Weisman’s New York Times bestseller The World Without Us examined the environmental impacts of human disappearance. Canadian artist Steve McGhee takes the idea of destruction as a form of creation to a whole new level.

According to mythology and contemporary science fiction, the Guardians of Time were an esoteric band of time travellers charged with watching humanity and intervening at key points in our history. In these visions of a post-apocalyptic dystopia, digital artist Christophe Dessaigne depicts the last dawn at the end of the world. Keep reading – explore 5 Isolated and Abandoned Settlements at the Ends of the Earth.
Unlike classic dystopian fiction like 1984 or even the more modern Never Let Me Go show a reality that can’t be escaped from. Hunger Games (Suzzane Colins), Divergent (Veronica Roth), Legend (Marie Su), Matched (Ally Condie) and Pure (Julianna Baggot). In the beginning, they may only dream about finding a new space, a space beyond the walls, outside of the dome, away from the reaches of the power structure. Sometimes their curiosity gets them into trouble with authorities whose unjust violence and power over their bodies can only be resisted. They may feel terrible about it, especially if they’ve had to shoot a friend or family member, or they may adapt to killing easily. He justifies his actions through appeal to God’s manipulations, lies, control and injuries.
In seeking to go beyond the social order, Satan was acting precisely as God expected him to. It can’t come from God, so there must be something else, somewhere else, where we can hide away the blame and the guilt and the shame. He is the necessary sacrifice, the dissident unjustly incarcerated, upon which the lie of Christianity can rest – he is the founding stone of the temple. I'm finishing my PhD in Comparative Literature, with a focus on how mythological and religious symbolism influences contemporary pop culture.

The ominously named Last Supper, created by a group of Belgian artists who travelled from Europe to Death Valley in 1984 to seek inspiration from the desert, features a collection of giant, ghostly figures dressed in white robes.

Resistance is really futile, if not only because systems of bio-power have nullified any possibility of Real Freedom.
Often family members will be held as hostages, and as often die at the hands of the totalitarian state, proving it corrupt. He feels, instinctively, that freedom is a natural right, that must be fought for if necessary.
McGhee’s work demonstrates the events leading up to such dystopia, as planes crash to earth, earthquakes and vast whirlpools devour great ships, and tidal waves wash away entire cities.
Austrian artist Manfred Kielnhofer brought brought the myth to life with his Time Guards installation.
They will gain followers and eventually triumph: a complete destruction of the social order. Les Miserables the dramatization of a failed revolution that is still heroic and glorified.
Will the Earth be rendered a barren dystopia or will it cease to exist completely and, if so, will it all happen in 2012 as some people think? Wearing hooded robes to resemble monks or wandering druids, Kielnhofer’s Time Guards have a habit of appearing suddenly in public places one day and vanishing the next.
Dozens and dozens of other examples to prove that our most cherished heroes are rebels who resist, refuse and bear arms against the police and the government. Thankfully, we can never know for sure, and as grim prophesy and countless harbingers of disaster have remained harmlessly unfulfilled, we can turn our attention to the more creative side of the world’s end.
