In my english class we are talking about a utopia. The assignment is that we have to create an utopian society on paper. It calls for a declaration of independance, a bill of rights, a constitution, and other specific documents. I think these requirements are similar to what america has, in terms of government, and america is so very far from an utopia. The asignment is just trying to reinforce the idea of an utopia and america being similar. I'm getting sick of all this disguised propaganda they force on us. I do beleive that acheiving a true utopia is impossible, in the same way that reaching infinity is impossible. You can keep counting forever but you will never get there. I will do this asignment because playing with ideas of the most ideal society is fun to me, but I will resent some parts of it. Who is to say that a near utopia requires a declaration of independance, a bill of rights and a constitution, there are many governmental and social idealogies that I must look in to.

  1. Interesting thoughts and I agree with what you're saying. Utopia is more of a fake concept imo.

  3. It's just the names of the declarations that bother you, isn't it? Call them whatever you like and fill them in as your utopian society needs it. your teacher will appreciate your creativity and the energy yuo've put into the assignment. Otherwise, fuck that teacher.

  4. High school is a brainwash factory. College isn't much different, either - just based on more intelligent topics.

  5. interesting!
    speaking of utopia the thought that comes to mind makes me laugh. whenever me and my father would go out for dinner everyone now and then we'd get the waitress asking where we're from, and my dad would reply saying "utopia" ..waiters would walk away trying to visualize the map of the world in their head and exactly where that "country" is located.
    i laugh hahahaha
