Literature: Kazohinia
A modern sequel for Gulliver's travels by a Hungarian author. Originally intended as a criticism of modern society, and the promotion of Marxism. Nowadays mainly remembered for being unintentionally hilarious.

    • Hive Mind: one of their scientists even compares their society to a hive.
  • Not So Different: The Behins, being intended as crude caricature of modern society. Many of their community's aspects poke fun of nationalism, capitalism, religion, literature, art, marriage and traditional gender roles, as well as war. Ironically, despite the novel's overall pro Marxist message they unintentionally ended up resembling communists themselves, so it works both ways.
  • The Spock: The Hins.
