Margaret Atwood published The Handmaid’s Tale, in 1985. Hulu adapted it into a remarkable TV series. It’s a dystopian story that might happened to our world, if we don’t prevent it. Starting from the exploitation of women who belongs only in kitchens and beds, to an authoritarian system of government based on a cruel authoritarian using a religion. It’s as depressed as Studio Ghibli‘s Grave of The Fireflies, I think.
In The Handmaid’s Tale, a country forcibly replaced its system from democracy to an authoritarian regime ruled only by men. The new country, called Gilead, changed its whole political system into a caste society, which legalized punishment, like the Jewish camps in World War II or even ISIS.
