Society if, also referred to as The World If or How Society Would Look is a popular image macro series, depicting a utopist city, paired with captions “Society if X happened” or “Society if X didn’t exist”.
An early example of the meme was uploaded to Twitter on February 23rd, 2018 by bhrisgreen, depicting a utopia, with the captions “society if bobby shmurda never went to jail”.
Not long after the original post, a similar upload was made by the Instagram page zyrethesavage on March 2nd, with the same caption, paired with a different utopist illustration.
