The topic of this study is, a critique of existing social conditions and political systems and a warning of the negative consequences of utopian thought. The purpose of this research is to analyze the creation of the myth of the young man. This tendency distances literature from man as an individual, from the subject, who becomes the object of a dominant iconography and of a general codification of human character. The young man is one of the most contradictory projects in the political history of mankind, the purpose of which is to modulate, adapt, control, codify and program the theme and social progress in the function of predetermined interests. The myth of the young man is part of a well-known paradigmatic model: ideology, family order, art, society, and morality forcibly imposed on the other as such. The term "superhuman" changes are often used in critical terms about dystopia to refer to the transcendence of human experience. The paradox can be explained by the example of the dual meaning of the words "wealth" and "poverty". In the novel The Island and other dystopian novels by various authors, Huxley compared economic wealth to spiritual poverty. Precisely because of the spiritual issue, was given a place on a pedestal on this island.
