    Utopia: No Place Chris Schendel Utopia- a word invented by Sir Thomas More as a play on the Greek ou (meaning “not”), eu (meaning “happy”) and topos (meaning “place”). Though More invented the word, the idea of a perfect society where all are equal and valued has been an endeavor of humanity since far before More’s time.

    • 1064 Words
    • 5 Pages

    Unique Utopias The idea of an “utopia” is often thought about in one way, without any diversity. This is wrong, as no two utopias are exactly the same. One of the main contributing factors in an utopia is the diversity in which makes each society special. Although Victory City and Sacred Mountain Sanctuary have few similarities such as their societal goals, the two communities are extremely different when it comes to their education systems, their way of life, and their economics. To…
