A Wrinkle in Time

Describe what life is like on Camazotz (we know how the people act and dress, but do they have freedom, choices, etc?) How is the life on Camazotz different from your own? Is anything the same?

Plz answer it.

According to IT Camazotz is like paradise,

"Why do you think we have wars at home [on Earth]? Why do you think people get confused and unhappy? Because they all live their own, separate, individual lives. I've been trying to explain to you in the simplest possible way that on Camazotz individuals have been done away with. Camazotz is ONE mind. It's IT. And that's why everybody's so happy and efficient."

This seems kind of peaceful but only because a higher power controls everything and everybody. Any deviation from a prescribed norm is purged of destroyed. It looks like a utopia on the surface but if anybody wants individual freedom of anything, it is a dystopia. Our lives are much different. We supposedly have "free will" and are not killed if we get a cold!

How is it different?

They feel a sense of security, like us, but (unlike us) it is controlled by one entity.

where can we compare it to?
