The Rhetoric of Healthcare Inequality in Capitalist Classed Societies: Blomkamp’s and Romanek’s Dystopian Visions

Joanna Gacka

Abstrakt


Chociaż futurolodzy powszechnie dyskutują na temat kierunku rozwoju medycyny i jego potencjalnego wpływu na jednostki i społeczności, rzadziej pojawia się pytanie o dostępność medycyny w przyszłości. Niniejszy artykuł analizuje wzajemne relacje między opieką społeczną a systemem kapitalistycznym ukazane w dystopiach Nie opuszczaj mnie (2010) Marka Romanka i Elizjum (2013) Neilla Blomkampa. Oba filmy przedstawiają wynalazki medyczne jako sposób i powód utrzymywania i pogłębiania nierówności społecznych. Wspomniane dystopie ostrzegają przed potencjalnymi zagrożeniami płynącymi z niespójności kapitalistycznej mentalności z moralnością i etycznością i prezentują deformację systemów opieki zdrowotnej jako rezultat konfliktu klasowego.
