    which everything is perfect, that is the definition of a Utopian Society. Unfortunately, nothing can be perfect all the time, and Utopian societies have proven that. Utopian societies haven't and will never work. These societies are something that could only ever work out in your dreams, not everything can be controlled. First off, people will rebel, they do not want to be told what to do. No one wants to be controlled their whole life, they want freedom and Utopian societies do not give you that. Although others may say that the government can control the people, if the people are willing to actually listen to the government. An example of not having freedom in a utopian society is that in Fahrenheit…

    Is a Utopian Society Possible? I am inclined to believe that a Utopian society could only thrive in one’s imagination, and would be destined to fall if it were ever attempted in the real world. Utopia is defined as, literally, no place. The longevity of a world or community with no faults is unachievable, especially with the complications of equality and Sameness. As seen in the Utopian works of fiction, The Giver and “Harrison Bergeron”, it is very easy to cross the thin line between…

    Essay Prompt #3- Utopian Society An ideal utopian society would give room for intermarriages, irrespective of race, financial or ethical background.

    The definition of a utopia is an idealistic or perfect view of society; so why shouldn't we reach for a flawless society and why is it unethical to attempt a “perfect” society? Despite the harmonization of society and the equality of all, individuality lacks within a utopian society. Additionally, basic human rights like freedom of speech are also limited within a utopia, leading to the dehumanization and desensitization of society. Utopias are outright impossible because all individuals have…

    Let us briefly summarize the terrain we have traveled. Whereas the Western notion of utopian striving provides a sense of hope and the will to act, the impossibility of actualizing the utopian ideal also invites fanatical devotion to delusional pursuit. We can see this pattern playing out vividly in our contemporary culture, where an unbridled commitment to consumerism promises a happiness that it cannot deliver, and in a cognitive neuroscience program that illogically assumes that continuing to…

    In a utopian society, all human beings have the right to liberty, equality and justice, whereas a democratic government secure those vital rights and serve as a social safety net to ensure that every citizen lives as a human being, and not only has the right to a life. The existence of an authority restricts extreme liberty of private property rights, avoids any enforced domination to ensure our personal liberty and democracy. For these reasons, an utopian society should have a government. One…

    Some people think that utopian societies don't last, while others may think that they may last forever or a long period of time. Usually, utopian societies don't last very long. In the case, I don't think that Jonas’s utopian society will last utopian forever. Jonas’s society isolated itself from all of the other societies around his if there even was more societies. Three examples why utopian societies don't last is that they have disagreements and arguments, they may eventually run out of…
