A Utopia symbolizes an illusionary place that projects the notion of a perfect society. By “perfect society” it refers to a civilization that meets ideal conditions. On the contrary my ideal Utopia won’t take place in a perfect world because I strongly believe that there is no such thing as a perfect world. There are stable worlds and worlds that exist in love and harmony, but never a perfect world. If there was a perfect world, there would be no need for any advancements or breakthroughs like there is today. Not only, but also people would become stationary, and eventually would pass away.
How would you feel living in a society with strict rules and everything you do has to be perfect to keep it the same? Do you think that you will be able to survive in one? What if you do something wrong and something gets messed up, how would you feel?Living in A democratic society with freedom is better than living in a utopian society, because you have the freedom to start your own business, freedom of choice, and the freedom to choose my own career.
Utopian communities have had an incredible impact on both American society and various recognized religious sects throughout the United States as a whole. Many people saw, and still see, democratic government as unfair, leaving the poor behind to become poorer while the rich continued to get richer; they felt a change in work and fairness was officially in order. Utopian societies were created with commendable intentions, and their idea of the perfect cooperative society is an attractive conference, but they were all considered experiments because they all declined swiftly and hopelessly.
In the end, a community with a little freedom were they can’t choose on what they want it’s not really considerd a utopia. They can’t feel, what people outside if the community. They can’t feel what seeing colors is, and how it is to feel love and emotions. They aren’t as free as they think. And if you don’t know what it is to feel. It’s not really a
The good of the commonwealth over the individual is also seen in the expectations and restrictions that are applied to the personal lives of the citizens in Utopia. Both Renaissance and modern readers can appreciate that careers come with expectations and that a career can benefit the greater good. For a modern reader it is hard to imagine that these expectations and restriction extend past the work day and into an individual’s personal
In My Utopia, no ideal government exists. My Utopias’ ideal government would serve one function, and one function only – to protect our liberty, not take it away. Also the power would lie in the community/people’s hands and not in a woman/man with a suit and tie doing whatever lobbyists
Also if everything is just handed to you and you all get the same of everything you have nothing to take pride in or anything to work for. Without Utopian Societies we learn how to work hard for the thing we want, how to achieve goals, how to express ourselves, and how to be thankful for what we are given without being told to or without having to we get to do it all on our. Even in a Utopia which is suppose to be a perfect community not everything is going to be perfect there is going to be something that goes wrong in it and we are still going to make mistakes. A Utopia is impossible because nothing is
Freedom is the ability for any individual to express their opinions or belief. It is a necessary component needed in a Utopia, but must also be restrained to a certain sense because if not it would lead to anarchy. However, more society restrains the personal freedom of its citizen to an unnecessary extent that is detrimental to an ideal society. To demonstrate Utopians need a passport in order to leave their city, and if they are caught trying to leave the city without one they are “punished as a fugitive[s], and sent home disgracefully” (41) This causes Utopian’s to feel that they are trapped in a prison, such a feeling is the exact opposite of a Utopia. A Utopia should make a person feel they have strong sense of freedom and ability to express him or herself. However, More Utopia does not give people this sense of freedom. Instead, More Utopia makes people feel
Utopian societies A utopian society is a perfect society that possesses perfect qualities. Utopian societies don’t typically work due to money issues and conflict due to control issues within the society. People have conflicts due to the fact that not all of the people in the society think alike. Money troubles
The Unreachable Utopia The struggle and debate for and about utopias has been going on for thousands of years. In the classic book, Brave New World, the author, Aldous Huxley, explores the aspects of happiness and stability through creating a utopia of his own. Of course, the civilization that he writes about is imperfect in many ways and the story follows an outcast in the society. In the book, Huxley shows us that true universal happiness is unattainable because to live a happy and fulfilled life with a true emotional range of feelings, essentially what it means to be human, people need to have freedom and thought. But in order to have a utopia with never ending happiness, people need stability and control. This makes a utopia an impossible
In Thomas More’s Utopia, the elimination of property and money has all citizens working for the commonwealth. It is “where every man has a right to everything. They all know that if care is taken to keep the public stores full, no private man can want anything. For among them there is no unequal distribution so that no man is poor, none in necessity and though no man has anything, yet they are all rich” (More 81). More’s Utopia also encourages a balance of power within society. It is where an individual, in a position of power, is not “as idle as drones, that subsist on other men’s labor” (More 7) It is where that individual gives “more regard to the riches of his country than to his wealth” (More 21).
Every utopia needs a government that is in complete and utter control of the people. Control is power in our government, and if you have control everything runs ever smoothly.
The best example of an utopian society is “2BR02B.” In the story it states,“All diseases were conquered . so was old age” (Vonnegut pg: 1). As the quote suggest that in the story all of old age was gone no one grew old and there was no illness at all this shows the society is perfect because all of the harm was gone because one thing is guaranteed death, but not in this society. According to Leora Duncan “‘That sure is a beautiful picture ,”she
He cried all night apparently.”(pg.206) After examining the Utopia in “The Giver”, I do not support eliminating personal choice and freedom for a Utopia. One reason I believe in freedom and choice is I believe individuals should choose their own jobs, unlike in “The Giver” where they cannot. If people chose their own jobs, they are motivated to contribute to society. Some people chose jobs that others may not because they get some personal benefit from it. Steve Jobs said,” Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. Don't settle.”
Social Contract The quality of your individual life would greatly improve in utopia. The burdens you face from corporate monopolies, the overwhelming weight of the devaluation of your currency and the lack of faith in your neighbors to achieve a civilization of peace and mutual respect has taken its toll for too long. Although this sounds as if it was taken directly from George Orwell’s book (1984) itself, the propaganda of a utopian government rule and the current everlasting war breathes as it’s on self-reliant organization today. Weary of the multiple political parties that are emerging every three seconds, we are faced with a question that has been proposed since the beginning of logical thinking. Is it
