Intentionalist

Con

Greetings, I will represent the contender and try to disprove the topic. I will firstly lay down the clarifications, definitions and my view of the given definition.

"For the means of this debate Utopia shall be defined as a world with no violence or major disagreements."

As this definition did not encompass the social, political, economic and other aspects of the Utopian world, I will determine my view on these terms of utopia.

1) In Utopian society exists a hierarchy of social classes( e.g. sovereign-nobility-military-clergy-bourgeoisie-peasantry).

2) One's behavior can by restricted by laws or norms of which purpose is to maintain and promote non-violent behavior, peace and social, political and economic stability.

3) Utopian world is politically organized society, which indicates that it has a defined executive, legislative, judiciary and administrative body( e.g. president, parliament, court system, bureaucracy).

4. In Utopian society, the economic system is stable.

Violence

As you haven't the defined the definition of violence, it will be the following:

Behavior involving physical force intended to inflict physical pain or kill someone or something.

Disagreement

As you haven't defined the definition of disagreement, it will be the following:

A failure or refusal to agree.
