It's not possible. If you have what are we at 7 billion people currently? If just one of them does something against the society it could disrupt the balance. The only thing I think that could unite humanity is an external attack, even then there will still be people who take advantage of the confusion to attack their enemies. Utopia society is impossible, not improbable, I mean literally impossible.

Nature and Nurture. If everyone was raised the same way, given same opportunities, and what ever else they wanted it still wouldn't work. No one is the same and you can't treat everyone the same either. You would need to cut out all emotions and everything else that makes humans humans. Someone will always feel that they are being mistreat in some way because no matter what happens someone will always be better than someone else.

In due time. We're making tremendous strides recently with the advent of the internet and technology. Crime has gone down dramatically in the US and much of the world. Despite a huge population explosion, and the news blowing a lot of whats happening out of proportion, its twice as safe to live in many places as it was just 20 years ago. And treaties banning the use of chemical and nuclear weapons show progress from the previous century.

Humans have been around as homo sapiens sapiens for around 50,000 years. We have 10,000 years of recorded history. fossilized remains showing massive rapings, pillaging, death and destruction by each other as well as plagues. a thousand years ago half of the world did not know the other half existed. 200 years ago even the most advanced civilizations on earth thought slavery and colonization were ok for the most part. A little over 100 years ago we didn't even know it was possible to fly and most people traveled via horse and buggy if at all. 50 years ago no one had set foot on another celestial object. 25 years ago most people had never even heard of the internet.

In another 500 years the world of today will be a distant memory. Our resources aren't sustainable, however we are turning the tide on ozone depletion by 2075, and space exploration could provide solutions for our water resource problems. Conflict between people can never fully be eliminated so long as there are people. But just as the conflicts during the feudal eras are more or less relegated to the 3rd world and the main conflict on the horizon is economic and cyber terrorism, the conflicts of the future may be settled over a virtual reality session or something.

A Utopian society is a robot society.

...so yes, it's very possible. And quite easy, even.

Now the question is why the heck would we humans want to create it?

I don't believe it's possible because people make their own decisions, and since nobody is perfect we often make the wrong choices.

Yes.
The first step is to kill all the humans.
