* ''Literature/BraveNewWorld''- Feels like utopia for the majority of people. The few malcontents can usually be ignored, as most people are too busy having sex and getting high to be influenced by them; at worst, an occasional troublemaker is exiled to an out-of-the-way island. Nevertheless, despite all the unchecked fun and hedonism (and in many ways because of it), it's clearly established as being a pretty shallow, hollow and fairly pointless existence.
* CrystalSpiresAndTogas- has the good parts of Literature/BraveNewWorld and is also intellectual. The [[Literature/TheCulture Culture]] novels are a good example. The entire populace spends all of its time entertaining each other with games, endeavours and such, while benevolent computers run everything. ''Franchise/StarTrek'' is another good example.

* ''Literature/{{Fahrenheit 451}}''- More than a lesson on how NewMediaIsEvil, given that the government in question burns the books and houses of those who do read, replacing them with meaningless, endless soap operas and entertainment for the sake of keeping the population docile - and as a result, everyone is pretty much a StepfordSmiler.

* ''Literature/{{Fahrenheit 451}}''- More than a lesson on how TV is evil, given that the government in question burns the books and houses of those who do read-- and isn't that concerned if the inhabitants are inside when this happens-- and everyone is pretty much a StepfordSmiler.

* ''Film/{{Brazil}}'' or ''VForVendetta'' - Look like bad versions of England at first glance, but both have Orwellian cruelty beneath the surface. The latter came to power through a program against homosexuals, non-white Britons, and other "undesirables".
