I Honestly Don’t Know, Just Go With The Flow

I have always been described as a go-with-the-flow kind of person, it was how I was raised. My mother will hop in her car and drive hours away, to a different state with no destination in mind, and I seem to have developed the same “can’t stay still mentality”. This is why I believe I fit into the anti-anti-utopian category. The article states that “one way of being anti-anti-utopian is to be utopian”. I however believe that this statement is deeply contradictory.

Anti-anti-utopians reject the idea that there is a predetermined, inevitable future towards which society is progressing. They argue that the future is uncertain and unpredictable and that it is important to be aware of the risks and uncertainties involved in any attempt to create a better world. Rather than seeking a fixed utopian vision, they advocate for an ongoing, iterative process of critical reflection and experimentation, where different possible futures are explored and evaluated. I feel that I embody these ideals. I feel that we as people should not strive to complete one specific goal. I think that we should simply strive to be better every day.

I believe that there are no perfect solutions to the problems facing society and that attempts to impose a utopian or anti-utopian vision are misguided. The future is uncertain and unpredictable, no one knows what’s going to happen later in time. I do fear that striving to something specific will harm us more than help us.
Anti-anti-utopian thinkers reject the binary opposition between utopia and dystopia, and instead advocate for a critical, reflective approach to envisioning and shaping the future. They recognize that there are both positive and negative aspects of existing social systems and that there are no perfect solutions to the problems facing society.

So basically, I see anti-anti-utopian thinking as very cautious and very eager to explore the endless possibilities and outcomes.
