  1. utopia is a hidden dystopia, which is a hidden utopia; read dunno on the moon: there is both utopia and dystopia, love and betrayal, a star and a daisy, etc.

  2. It's very simple.�

    Utopian works describe an ideal world where technological and / or social progress has allowed humanity or a particular part of it to live a prosperous life, without military, social, religious or other conflicts.

    With dystopias, the opposite is true: they describe a world where human society is morally/politically / technically degraded for any reason. Traditionally, this includes the decline of civilization after a war or natural disaster, as well as various kinds of totalitarian socio-political systems. However, dystopia, despite the inherent gloominess of this genre, can also contain ironic (and even humorous) elements.

    An example of such a work is “Moscow 2042” by Vladimir Voinovich. I strongly recommend reading it, by the way. His work, written at the end of the last century, is dedicated to a dissident writer who traveled back in time to visit the Moscow of the future, where communism in the North Korean spirit had already been built, only brought to the absolute absurdity.
