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.

  • 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.

  • People are imperfect.

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

  • 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?

  • 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.

  • I wish it was

    I dream for a society were all men are equal not matter who or what they are. A society that deems everyone to be equal and treats them accordingly. But I know humans to be imperfect, greedy creatures so the building of a Utopia would be halted by these creatures even before we began to construct such a society. That does not mean I will not do my best to achieve this unachievable goal.

  • Not really possible

    The dream of an Utopian society is kind of like chasing a carrot on a stick. We may try to make it a reality but its not going to happen. Why? Well simply because our world is not perfect it is not meant to be so. Doesn't matter how much every politician (good or bad) tells us that "we can make this world a better place" it will never happen.
    Simply because there is a lot of chaos and anger and confusion around the world. Everyone thinks about them selves before others, everyone is blinded by greed and materialism. That has brainwashed us. Us humans are born with the Midas touch to destroy and ruin everything we touch. Our world, or planet, each others lives and even our own. Hence i believe without elaborating too much that having a perfect society can only happen/ look good in movies. As we do not have the capability and/or possess the ability and motivation to create a picture perfect world.

  • No but we can still have a much better world.

    One philosopher argued it would be better to focus on destroying accepted evils than trying to create a utopian vision which would differ for different people and result in conflict. It is definitely possible to create a much better world though. In fact crime stats from the FBI and information from Professor Steve Pinker show that the world is actually a better place than before despite what the news tells us.

  • No, not possible.

    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. If we were to create a perfect society we would have to take what every single person likes and Put it in one world. Also one person might want to murder somebody and they will achieve that. Also one person might want one thing and another person dislike that object. It all depends on what a person wants.

  • No because utopia means a perfect society and nothing and no one is perfect

    It can't be utopia because the society isn't perfect even tho people may say it is it really is not. If we had a perfect society we wouldn't have bad people and we wouldn't need polices to catch them. There wouldn't be people getting shot and killed or murdered by other people.
