The thing about the extremes of positive and negative stories..
Dystopian = everything is rotten, yet there is some hope
Utopian = everything seems perfect at first, yet these is something is deepely wrong in the background.
Now what is the positive story? The reader decides to focus on positive or negative overall aspects.
Take a utopian version of hunger games. The main character of hunger games. She grows up in the capital. There is welth and lots of great food, parties and everything. There is even a great yearly entertainment thing where less fortunate kids from the districts get the opertunity to show worrier skills and make themselves and their families rich. When she volentiers for a job to help these kids prepare (a job that can make you famous) the harsh reality becomes apparent. These kids and family are repressed and live awful lives just to make the life in the capital possible. When she tries to speak up she gets to feel just how awfull the powers in the can be, even her family and friends are punnished for her attempts to speak up.
Same world other view. In the end what story is more positive?
