** The future only [[ValuesDissonance seems bad to the people of the present]] because they never experienced the social, economic, political, and scientific progress that brought it about. To the people of the future, their world is better off even if it is different because it is the future they chose for themselves. Example: {{Transhumanism}} considers the future to contain such massive leaps in technology and human evolution that our species would be virtually unrecognizable in both appearance and psychology, so it only makes sense that a modern day human would be horrified at first.

* '''Deconstructed''': ** The hero(es) could only be on even terms with the villain in their present because they had the government on their side. With all of this government's resources turned ''against'' them, they all end up killed [[FateWorseThanDeath or worse]] in a very short time. ** It turns out that even {{Black Shirt}}s and the BigBad aren't really enjoying the situation, because DystopiaIsHard to maintain. * '''Reconstructed''': ** However, the dystopian future has also spawned a secret [[LaResistance resistance force]] that is more than willing to give the hero the help he needs to fight back. Seeing what's at stake if they lose to the villain strengthens their resolve to defeat him/her/it for good. ** The BigBad has an idea that DystopiaJustifiesTheMeans, and some of his {{Black Shirt}}s follow suit, so the hardness of maintaining a dystopia is seen by them as a challenge.
