Is it possible to forcefully make a perfect society? I believe that a perfect society in the world we live in today is impossible unless everyone collaborates. The Giver by Lois Lowry, and Lord of the Flies by William Golding are two novels, were people try to form a utopian world but end up forming two very different dystopian worlds. The Giver, takes place in a world of the future where there is no color and no memories for anyone but one person, The Giver. Everyone else in their world is isolated, prohibited from experiencing life to the fullest. The Lord of the Flies takes place on an island where a group of boys plain crash lands, and no adults survive. They try to form a perfect society as well, but since there is no authority, they end up killing each other for power. Together these two novels has convinced me that it is impossible to make a perfect society except if every single person collaborated. It is not a
With the elimination of the class system, talked about in Marx and Mantsios, would bring down the walls of inequality. Race, sexuality, gender, etc. would be irrelevant in the means of social status and the economy. When you eradicate a system that controls wealth of a country changes the economy greatly. Changing the flow of money to create a more equivalent distribution with decrease the striking gap between rich and poor. So not only will you affect a social outlook, but a financial one as well.
Humans have always strived for better, bigger buildings, safer homes, faster communication. Humans have tried to succeed in making a perfect community otherwise known as a utopia. In a utopia everything is perfect, there is no fighting, hunger is unknown, and greed is abolished. Utopias are very hard to create, and must have balanced leadership, limited freedom, and complete isolation.
Humans are imperfect so any attempt at perfection on Earth will fail. People will eventually find bad things out. According to “Mentalfloss.com” “ all that harmonious marching gets tripped up pretty quickly”(paragraph 1). The so called perfect communities will freak out thanks to human nature. People will find things out about their community that is bad and they will tell everyone. The secrets of the community will get out and be shared. In additon “mentalfloss.com” says that, “ a proud little community will sprout up just to let the world know how Utopia should be run.”(paragraph 1). But everyone knows that people will eventually find out the bad things in their community and all the good things in the real world. It is better to know than
Social class affects society in many ways. Throughout research I found that social class mostly affects health, life and education. The rich has more advantage than the middle class and the middle class has more advantage than the lower class all due to money. Health is one of the most important factor in one’s life. The poor are more prone to diseases and are the ones who are disadvantaged in the healthcare system. The lower and working class have low access to fresh produce and exercise facilities. The rich get one of the best education while the poor end up dropping out of school due to financial reasons. Education is also very important for preventing diseases, having a healthy diet and properly exercising. The poverty in the lower class
Throughout history, mankind has gradually become a more centralized and cohesive unit. While revolutionaries such as Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels had to dream of a united humanity, this dream is now within reach and humanity can now embrace its destiny and free the masses. For once mankind does not have to dream, the near perfect utopia of the future, the perfect society, is within its grasp. Some novels, such as The Giver by Lois Lowry, can aid in giving an example of a Utopian paradise for all.
In order for Plato, Marx and Engles, and Descartes to describe their views on a perfect society, they had to outline their views on happiness. They believed that in order to be perfect, a society must be happy; however, their opinions differed on whether the contentment of an individual or the group as a whole was more important. Although perfection is defined differently for each philosopher, their visions create a mold for how society could potentially try to perfect civilization to an extent.
The idea of creating a more perfect â€œutopianâ€ society is nothing new, as it has been prevalent throughout history during the period of Marx and Lenin. Marx believed that through communism a selfless and equal societal class would be created. He believed that by eliminating competition and inequality, conflict would also be prevented because no one would have a purpose for triggering war. Prominent aspects of Marxist communism are revealed in the Abnegation Faction; the main goal of Abnegation is to function in ways that will benefit the entire faction system and to have their actions benefit all. Later on, a man named Vladimir Lenin took Marxist Communist ideas to the next level as he believed in the establishment of a society where no
One reason why the current society isn't as perfect as it can be is because it's not as truthful to the people. The main cause is social media; it states a lot of opinions all at once, which makes it harder for someone to actually pick their own opinion. The fact that someone's opinion might not actually be their opinion has broken trust in many ways. The main reason why a perfect society is needed is to make people happy and actually feel the true feeling of freedom. A unique thing about Ayoub’s society is that it will have very advanced technology which will have a huge role in punishment. Other then the type of government, Ayoub’s society will not be the same as the current one.
A perfect world is defined as a state of being, place, or utopia in which all problems have been overcome. This theory has become a topic of conversation quite frequently due to lack of ideal knowledge of what the future holds. My perception of a perfect world includes an equal government system, diverse human rights or behavior, and immaculate health. Major aspects such as these will develop a sublime society to therefore be used as an authentic representation of the “good life”.
Despite the fact that many societies have attempted to create perfect societies, or utopias, none have achieved it. A utopia is a society that is completely perfect, with no crime, and with equality. A utopia is not currently possible because of many reasons, including, human nature, resources, people's needs and many other factors. It would be an amazing goal to achieve, but is out of reach of humans in our current state.
We all have dreamed of a perfect world and we all have our own ideas about how to achieve it. Unfortunately, it’s just not possible in the world we live in. But if a utopia could be attained, there are elements that could represent a utopia.
The concept of classless society was also significant in the theory of Karl Marx, German philosopher, who perceived it as an ideal type of society, which he called communism, where every workman owns means of production, thus, everyone is economically equal and classes become unnecessary. However, the rise of agriculture helped to develop unequal society, which he called capitalism, by creating opportunities for certain people to accumulate their wealth and prevail over the rest of the population. As a result, classes arised (New World Encyclopedia, 2008).
What is living in a perfect world like? Is a perfect world even possible? How does technology and social interaction factor into a society aiming towards one that is utopian? Technology is ever-present in our society today. It has helped us become more efficient, more accessible, and provides us with a level of instant gratification we have not always had. These appear to be some upsides to technology. It moves and develops so quickly that one may have thought that they have just purchased the most recent version of an IPad, only to realize that a new version is going to be released next week. From a social interaction point of view, it is not uncommon to be in a restaurant and see two
The Great Gatsby (2013), based on Fitzgerald’s 1925 novel, focuses on a relationship between a man and a woman who belong to different social classes in the 1920s. They are members of the Lost Generation, those in their 20s and 30s in the years immediately following World War I, and spent their lives searching for purpose. The Lost Generation grew up during the war, when most Americans were supporting the war effort on the homefront. After the war, the Lost Generation searched for an alternate purpose to the war effort. The movie’s interpretation of the Lost Generation expresses the importance of social class and general aimlessness often satisfied through material accumulation.
