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 .

  • We cannot have a society that pleases all.

    No matter what we do, no society will ever please everyone, or solve all of their concerns and problems. However, working towards a BETTER society, which IS possible will do greatly to better the human condition. In the end, there will never be a society that everyone has no problems with, so No

  • 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.

  • Human emotion will trump all attempts at it, even in the perfect society

    The human condition requires strife and struggle. With all of the battles fought and all of the answers achieved, there is nothing left to fight for. In a society with no competition, complacency will set in and begin to grip the people of the society. People will become depressed and suicide rates my go up, or worse, someone will become angry, blame the rest of society, and lash out.

  • No-one is exactly the same.

    Nobody is the same therefore you cannot be equal.People have different ideas of Utopia and if it does not fit all the requirements that people want,it is not a Utopia.If it does not please EVERYONE,it would not count as a Utopia.There is a quote that states ”One person’s utopia is another person’s dystopia.”

  • Everyone has a different idea of perfection

    For some, their ideal world would be a peaceful, serene place where they could find joy and rest. For others, it would be a thrill, or an adventure. For still others, a Utopia is a place where they can find friends and fellowship. No one can agree on what a Utopia is, because it is something different for every person, depending on their personalities. No one could truly find a place that would satisfy everyone's cravings for perfection because everyone's craving for perfection is different.

  • Its not possible

    Humans are faulty and will fight against the government and break laws. The only way to prevent this is with harsh punishments, which is a dystopia, or brainwashing, which is also a dystopia. Death, is also a problem. You cant have a utopia with death and suffering, and the only way to prevent this is to mke people not fer death with brainwashing, which again, is a dystopian method.

  • No it isnt possible.

    Utopia literally means no place. Referring to it being non existent. Seriously, search it up. All of the yes votes are just commie socialists that are bored and have nothing to do with their lives. All attempts at creating a utopian society have failed. Those who dont know history are doomed to repeat it.

  • The hole thought of a utopia is impossible in the world we live in today.

    If you just go anywhere around the world you will see all sorts of opinions and preferences. That alone is the first reason a utopia is impossible, but if you think about all that would have to happen for such a place to exist. One would have to take away someones rights or shut down someone else's opinion and again the would defeat the propose of a utopia.

  • We cannot have a society that pleases all.

    No matter what we do, no society will ever please everyone, or solve all of their concerns and problems.

  • 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.
