Should Speculative Fiction Be Abolished. The Handmaids Tale and V For Vendetta

The Handmaids Tale  "A rat in a maze is free to go anywhere, as long as it stays inside the maze." This quote from The Handmaids Tale shows the lack of freedom through symbolism that the people within Gilead have. They have a slight amount of freedom but total freedom is different and what they strive for. This idea of freedom is questioned throughout the novel which changes the responders and community of Gilead's perceptions of the practises taking place.

V For Vendetta “People shouldn't be afraid of their government. Governments should be afraid of their people.”  This quote by V demonstrates the idea that society has more power then they realise and should not believe they need to depend on the government. It also is shows that V through his words is changing the peoples perceptions towards their government.

Should speculative narratives be given the power to alter society’s perceptions of the government and international practises?
