The Mary Sue Society YKTTW Discussion
|The Mary Sue Society|
Everything is perfect in this Socialist/Communist/Anarchist/Libertarian/Objectivist etc..etc.. utopia. Everyone lives a comfortable upper-middle-class lifestyle, poverty and crime are not noticeably existant, people are friendly and well-behaved, and of course The Trains Run On Time . The society Works, and any historical references to why it shouldn't are either ignored or hand-waved as examples of not doing it right. The only time you'll see anyone in distress in The Mary Sue Society is when they try to break with the society's core ideology. Frequently the biggest external threat to The Mary Sue Society will be an aggressive neighbor whose social-structure represents a Strawman Political version of the philosophy most diametricly opposed to that of The Mary Sue Society.
