I don't believe in Utopia, unless humans are born and raised with a hard set and ignorance that this is the true way to live, that you cannot bypass laws, that you'll either feel safe or suffocating from fear what will eventually come down on you- However, I believe in rebellion, because it shows the human race still have a backbone of self consciousness, of awareness and belief.

The true reasons Human have continued to live and ruled over all animals for decades is due to free will, what will possibly happen to us if you take that away?

Nope. Human nature trumps all, and utopia eventually becomes dystopian when power grabs are made and people begin to abuse their authority. Utopia, communism, they both defy human nature, and while theorized they are very beneficial and good concepts, they can't actually be employed without someone eventually becoming corrupt. See previous and current communist societies:. North Korea. STALANIST RUSSIA, especially!

Utopia is not possible since people have different thoughts and personalities. It would turn into dystopia.

A world wide utopia is impossible for us to achieve since we simply have too many opinions. Everyone likes something different, meaning that, a single "utopia" would mean the loss of our individuality.

On the other hand I do think that a form of utopia can be achieved on a much smaller scale. You may not be able to solve the world's issues, but you definitely can help those around you and those you care about. A community can be a utopia, as can a town or city. The catch is that not a single person can be complacent. Otherwise there will always be someone neglected, ignored, or shunned.

This does seem like a fantasy in and of itself, but I believe that everyone can make a utopia of their own. You can have a happy family, a close knit group of friends, and so on. What matters is if you recognize these bonds and actively work to protect them. Something that I think many people easily overlook simply because the grass is always greener on the other side.

That said, I think that a true single worldwide utopia is a bit silly, but the idea itself is far from a dream and is completely attainable.

Germany was never communist unless you're talking about east germany post WWII under the Russians, NK isn't really communist either.

It might be in the future, like 1000 years into the future, if we get the option to plug into some matrix realistic virtual world where everything can be just perfect for every persons needs.

The world we live in would never allow that to happen. People are way to selfish and the government is too messed up for it. Youd have to invent a brainwashing device for it to be possible

It is not impossible but improbable, first you would need to eliminate individual culture, then create a universally accepted culture. So yes it is possible but it would probably take many millennium and many major events that would unite humanity. I don't see it happening though, it is very hard to picture from what we currently live in.


Even then, if just one person gets power hungry and starts trying to take over. The whole thing will fall apart. Unfortunately too many people prefer not to help others and look only to make themselves better off, even at the expense of others.


That is why you have to change the culture, so that the way people think is entirely different. In our currently divided cultures a utopia of sorts would never be possible. It could happen quicker if we could start from a blank slate but that is impossible. Greed, and etc. are all products of our culture and the resulting thought process that it shapes. It is a loop which feeds back on itself. When I said uniting humanity, think of it like a scifi alien invasion movie or 9-11 for America, after 9-11 people were much more patriotic even though it was not a tragedy for everyone in the nation and yet almost every American felt the effects. So many events on a human scale could change the culture which would change the way people think. they may not think about the individual anymore but about the group humanity. eliminating the want, need for greed or personal gain could easily result in people simply being satisfied. That is why people bought into socialism and Marxism although the 2 are different. People often equate those 2 to communism but that was simple a failed take on the idea based in a corrupted society. So in say 10,000AD it could be possible that conditions may be right for a utopia but culture would have to change for human nature to change. Also one person against everyone else, not likely and you are still thinking in terms of what a person would do that knows our culture. Change the culture and you would change the way people think. Psychologists would have a field day, and so would anthropologists.

animegirl is most likely referring to Germany wanting to have a Utopian society... by wiping out everyone else under mass genocide.

Nope its impossible, considering that everyone has a different perception of what Utopia is supposed to be.
