I think the reason Utopias exist only in fiction is because they can not be created in the real Some would argue that it would be possible for those who have the same ideas for a perfect society to simply live together without outsiders, but this poses many problems the main one being that those born into the society and mature can and will develop distinct political views that may differ from those in the society they are currently in.
Given these complexities, my approach to creating a utopian society is based on the prioritization and enhancement of universal and basic rights. This includes fundamental rights such as universal healthcare, livable wages, extended maternal and parental leave, free higher education, and a reformation of the justice system. Additionally, allowing individuals to direct their taxes towards causes they support, coupled with initiatives to eradicate homelessness and hunger, would form the backbone of this utopian vision.
Central to my ideal society is the cultivation of a safe and inclusive environment that embraces diversity across age, religion, race, gender identity, and sexual orientation. While these aspirations may not seem radical, they represent core facets of my utopia because their realization remains distant from our present reality. Creating a space where tolerance and acceptance prevail is a critical step toward a society that genuinely values and safeguards the well-being of all its members.
Recognizing how deep the roots of racism, sexism, and classism are embedded in existing societies worldwide and were crucial to their development and just as integral in their continuity, I acknowledge that a true utopia demands a radical reimagining, requiring a comprehensive overhaul rather than mere attempts at reversal. Although the path to utopia may be daunting, the pursuit of these ideals holds the potential to significantly enhance the lives of many, if not all.
