Is the ideal of a Utopian Society Possible? The ideal of attempting to build perfect society.

Asked by: YoungLawyer
  • It'd be an effort.

    What I'd like to see happen is that whomever is in charge of keeping the Internet running would be asked by an assortment of politicians and experimentalists to deactivate the Internet for a requested amount of time and see how the people of society will do. I don't know if this experiment will ever be done, but it's something I think about.

  • But to do so you have to precisely define Utopia and use the tools of science to achieve it.

    It probably wouldn't hurt to do it secretly in a small isolated community because you can be sure that the outside world would interfere with its creation, ESPECIALLY if you succeeded! I would define Utopia as a society that is 1-steady state into the foreseeable future, 2-uses renewable resources to maintain itself, and 3-satisfies Maslow's Hierarchy of needs to the best level possible for the people within it. There are aspects of human nature that would have to be modified permanently to achieve all this, either by drugs or genetic engineering. Did you notice freedom and democracy are not part of the plan? One key is a self correcting 'leveling' mechanism to drag down any leadership that drift away from the goals of collective benefit. There's a lot that I can't describe here because of space limitations.

  • Depends on what you consider Utopian

    A lot of people fail to realize that there's actually more than one route and some routes are actually more possible than others. While some are borderline OCD whimsical with no ills for anyone ever the end some are a bit more realistic with things such as just the abolition of money and classes based on money.

  • Could be Possible .

    Assuming a group of people who agreed on what a perfect world is decided to create said world . They could create a "utopia " obviously you can't create a utopia with everyone because A everyone has a different version of a perfect world and B people are not nice . But utopia is possible .

  • This what i need

    Also nobody is perfect. Of we were we would have been The same and there would be no chaos nor would there be difference in intelligence or strength or "swag". There would o la be one type of Job and there would be no news and only one school. The world would have been miserable and dull and boring. Nobody would want a world like that.
    People who believe that we can make a perfect society have good points but over look one thing. People constantly change. In order to make a perfect world we would have to constantly be adapting and changing and If one person changes than The whole world has to change. That changed person might want a more new things. Also everybody would be spoiled of we had what we wanted.
    Is it possible to create a perfect society? Will scientist Have The right technology to do this? William this utopia be never ending? No it is not possible. It is impossible due to everybody's difference of characteristics. Also nobody is perfect. People who Believe that we can make a perfect society have good points but over look one thing.

  • Utopian societies are never achievable.

    In a society, you will have government. If you have government, you will have corruption. If you have corruption, you do not have a perfect society. If you don't have government, you will have chaos. If you have chaos, you will not have a perfect society.

    That's the best way I can sum it up lol.

  • People are imperfect.

    A government and society are formed by humans, and are therefore also imperfect.

  • Endless Impossibilities. The world is full of crazy things.

    I will not dealt much into this. I personally believe that the ideal of a perfect society is nearly impossible, no matter how hard we try. By trying to build a perfect society, we have to take ever single person need into consideration, which for the most part is hard. Also, the issues that break down a society, will only resurface and hinder this "perfect society." If you speak of a perfect society, you're talking about one in which every individual is happy, and one might want a society where's there's no gay and where's there is gay, and once issues pose a conflict of interest to both side, the problems that make an perfect society possible, nearly impossible.

  • Utopian societies are impossible to create.

    I feel that if we try to create a utopian society, then we will consequentially create a dystopian one. Imperfections are okay to have! Everyone and everything has imperfections of some sort. If we were to try and create a utopian society, then we would most likely try to solve issues such as the gap between social classes, poverty, and the lack of education, for instance. However, in order to completely solve such issues, we would need to take away things that are almost vital to our society such as freedom to do many things, such as make our own choices. By attempting to solve all of our problems we would just create more. It is impossible to satisfy everyone and create a society in which problems of any kind are nonexistent.

  • Utopia is not possible by definition.

    Utopia -

    An imagined place or state of things in which everything is perfect. The word was first used in the book Utopia (1516) by Sir Thomas More.

    It is by it's very definition, the perfect place, and an impossible place.

    Utopia is an ideal to strive for, not something which can be achieved.

    The goal of striving for a Utopian society is to create an imperfect replica.

    We live in a broken and cruel world. It is beautiful, and there is so much joy to be found, but there is also unfairness, cruelty, harshness and mercilessness.

    Wouldn't the world be a better place if we all strive a bit harder for what we know is impossible, but what we still hope can be?

  • The word Utopia doesn't exist

    Utopia literally means in Greek "no place" this is an imaginary world that isn't possible as long as humans are concerned. Humans aren't perfect thus we will never be able to form a perfect society you can argue that a small society could do it, but here's the thing you would still get into arguments and for it to be perfect it would have to be eternal and small societies don't have a tendency of disappearing and not surviving long.

  • No you suk

    You suck so like if you disagree with me and stuff ill like totally season ur nuggets and listen when i tell you that you don't want me to season ur nuggets >:C you just got roasted like a popsicle in the microwave so go lick a pile of pencil shavings you illiterate bubble

  • Your opinion of perfect is different then everyone else.

    What I would consider a perfect society is different then what you would consider a perfect society. For some the perfect society would be one where everyone had very strict discipline of their children and for other a relaxed parenting is perfect. For some a society of gays and transgender people being accepted is perfect and for others that would be nowhere near their perfect society. Since your view of an utopian society is different from any other person you surround yourself with your perfect will never be their version of perfect. My perfect will never be the same as any other person's perfect.

  • It's a goal worth striving for but ultimately not achievable.

    Just as each of us can strive to be a perfect person, no one really achieves perfection. One person's idea of perfection is often at odds with other people's ideas of perfection. A Utopian society, then, would involve a large group of people agreeing about a definition of perfection and then achieving it. Considering we've debated for millenia without achieving consensus about what would define a Utopia, it is far less possible to actually build one. That doesn't mean we should stop trying.

  • People aren't perfect.

    Therefore, the society that people create can not be perfect either. People are corrupt, so the society they make will be the same thing. Think of all the awful human characteristics that are unchangable b/c they are in our nature and apply that to society. Then you will see why a perfect society is impossible.
