    Just vs. Viable To be just is to be fair and honorable. Kids are taught that if you are kind and just you will excel and be successful. But life's not fair and being just doesn't necessary mean that a society will stand the test of time and be able to grow. The two different societies introduced in More's Utopia and Machiavelli's The Prince are very different and although More's Utopian society would be considered more just then Machiavelli's society.

    The definition of the word 'Utopia' is defined as a place or state of ideal perfection (A Dictionary of the English Language 1575). How can a society reach a point of Utopia? Although many countries have tried to achieve such a goal, they have been unable to attain a state of perfection. In 1984, written by George Orwell, government takes control of every aspect of person's life in an attempt to achieve 'perfection'. In Childhood's End, written by Arthur C. Clarke, the human race is assimilated ...

    HUMAN NATURE: ARE PEOPLE GOOD OR BAD? From the time when humanity was able to believe in it, Utopia has existed as a mere word, thought or principle. It is a place that is hoped for, and is also a society that was and is apparently deemed to be possible, or is it? The Merriam-Webster's dictionary defines it as "an imaginary and indefinitely remote place of ideal perfection in laws, government and social conditions." It doesn't exist. It cannot exist because of our nature, our practices, and our ...

    Virtually every culture has strived to achieve a Utopian society. A Utopian society is basically a society, which has surpassed aggression, war, hate, and crime while establishing "peaceful" and orderly communities. A Utopian society could not exist with the individuality that nature has bestowed on the human race. So long as humans remain unique in their state of mind, utopia is a mere fantasy. To work around this problem a society must adapt itself to achieve a utopian-like state. This can be ...

    Brave New World After reading the novel Brave New World by Ald us Huxley it is easily realized that it is unlike any other classic story. It predicts a future overpowered by technology and where the people have no religion. The plot of the story made me think if this would be a perfect place to live or a terrible place to live. It is hard to distinguish where the line is drawn between making life simpler and losing the meaning of life. Although some may look upon this type of life with envy I pe...

    Utopia In my opinion, it is virtually impossible to design a utopian society. Although the principles you base your society may have the potential, if the rest of life in that society is modified enough so that all those in the society introduced to this idea or principle will take it as reality and apply it to their everyday life, thus allowing them to fit the mold of the perfect person in the perfect society; then how can anyone consider complete equality between all people, truly perfection. ...

    Utopian Dreams Throughout the ages, man has come to idealize a word that is most commonly related to heavenly or perfect without actually picking up the book and realizing for themselves that there is no such thing. A Utopian society could never exist because man is made to want, to desire success. Man is competitive by nature and would never be happy in a society where everyone is equal and there is no chance of advancement. Sir Thomas More dreamt of a land that was much like England but could ...

    Envy and love are two primary factors that contribute to the emotion of a society. Without love, and ultimately envy, a society is not in equilibrium. This then creates a dystopia, rather than a well sought after utopia. Envy is the strong desire to possess what another person has. In love, the two people that are in love with each other own each other, which is why envy is a natural consequence of love. Dystopian societies are created by the rulers in the novels 1984 and Brave New World, and a...

    The lesson to be learned from George Orwell's 1984 is that an "ideal' of having a Utopian society will never really work. George Orwell may have written 1984, in order to show us that every society has it's ups and downs and that no matter how hard you work to keep the society perfect there will always be flaws. In the book 1984, the society in which the people lived was completely opposite to what most people would see as "utopia'. As defined by the New Scholastic Dictionary the word "Utopia' m...
