The Possibility of Utopia

In my honest humble opinion, Utopia is possible.

The focus that you have in your post are all about the government, and the kinds of practice they impose, are merely like policies.

In order to, as you say,share health, harmony, and happiness together. I believe unity is the answer. Not peace. For unity is true, while peace can be false.
However, not in one so called policy in which a government wants to impose…instead, make it a practice by the people.

In my perspective as a organizational communicator, we believe that policies are merely one part of the entire picture…that’s why, if a policy is to be implemented, focus must be put on those that are the recipients of these policies and executes them,not just the policy itself. Efforts will have to be put into educating and training them in a way they would stand united when the organization is put to a test, or in this context of a nation.

Based on an individual level, people in general are different, this can be visibly obvious. But I am sure you all realize that the things that you are exposed to throughout your lifetime, be it your parents, friends, culture, education and experience forms the belief and philosophies you have in life are what makes each us different. And in my opinion, the kinds of things that we are exposed to these days are dominated by those are negative in nature, valueing money more than life, self interest more than making the interest of others as our own interest. We are selfish and materialistic only because that is the way people have acted throughtout history, and because we continously see these values. But the opposite is very possible,and I have met many people like that.

So say for example, we were to start now, to value virtues, to value the interest of others, to value God’s teachings, perhaps in a thousand years, when it has finally becomes a norm, would that not make Utopia more possible. The way society is today is due to prolonged practice, skewed, but have done these things for a long time. So, I ask…if back then, the practice are skewed to the other side, would Utopia not be the logical outcome?

I stated that efforts must be placed in educating the people,I do not mean just schools, we obviously know that most religions are already teaching these values, but if this education were to start since the day a baby was born, dare you say, that this baby would not grow up to be a well rounded virtuous individual? Place it in a larger context, if all were taught in this way to share,tolerate differences and unite in diversity,you will see why I say that Utopia is possible…it just takes time.

Communism or any of the other practices brought up for that matter, failed, because they tried to change the country and how it runs. But the people still had their own existing values and beliefs that either differs or outright opposes their own government’s, no one was truly united in that sense. I belief it is not the policy but the practice by the people that is going to make Utopia possible. It will take everyone of us.

The possibility of Utopia is an anti-thesis to my essay available through the link below:
