“Utopias are often only premature truths.” – Alphonse De Lamartine
There are those that think the inequities in our society can be easily solved through a utopian society or government. They believe Utopianism is necessary to improve the human condition. The focus of literary utopias consist of equality in economics, government and justice. It all sounds great but the reality is societies don’t have the same desires and because of this conflict it’s impossible to satisfy society as a whole. In a true utopia everyone lives in harmony.
Is a utopia achievable? In a perfect world, maybe? It would have to be a world void of the hunger for power, greed and emotions. As long as these three are alive and well I for one believe it is highly unlikely that a true utopia could ever exist.
Greater minds than mine through the years have debated if a true utopia could ever exist.
Theodor W Adorno writes: “None of the abstract concepts comes close to fulfilled utopia than that of eternal peace.”
