  • Home Under Our Ideally Perfect Society
    576 words
    In a capitalist society can utopia really be obtained? I really don't think so; because if utopia is defined as a place of ideal perfection especially in laws, government, and social conditions, then a place where everything is perfect for everyone is not likely. Perfection, I believe, cannot be obtained in a capitalist society because of competition. Competition can help society in many areas, such as improving technology, forcing individuals to work harder, and making more money for the overal...
  • One Idea Of Perfection
    537 words
    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 ...

    I can only imagine the perfect society. I look around and all I see is violence and hate, our world at this point is disturbing. There are murders due to hate in this world everyday. The hate in today's real world society is appalling. It starts from the most senseless acts such as, some types of rock music, passing of uncouth comments, and lack of a structured family life.

  • Plato's Perfect Society
    1,934 words
    It seems that all societies are always striving for perfection. From the beginning of time, people have always worked to be the best. Sometimes, wars had to be fought. Other times compromises had to be made. But in the end, it all came down to one concept. Every community, every city, every nation was looking for perfection. In his Republic, Plato feels that he knows how to reach this ultimate goal. He suggests a society with the best government where all people are happy and everything is equal...

  • Gattaca Through Its Obsession With Perfection

The increased focus on technology has decreased the human element, and values have changed. Yet even those genetically ...
  • Concept Of Perfect And Positive Health
    900 words
    The definitions that people have attributed to health have changed over time and today there are many ways of viewing health, which makes measurement difficult. Health in Western Societies tends to be defined as simply "the absence of illness and disease" because of the dominance of medicine in these societies (Naidoo & Wills, 2001). However, this definition has been criticised as being incomplete by many health professionals. The World Health Organisation (WHO) agree that health no longer refer...
  • Perfect Society
    292 words
    An Ideal Society There is no real way to describe an ideal society many authors have tried to write what they believe it might be like, but by the end of every story the perfect society all most always fails. The only real way we could have a perfect society is if the people who made up the society were perfect. Now if everyone was perfect we would eliminate diversity and by eliminating diversity we take away one of the main keys that makes a society work. We would be unable to assign a leader b...
  • Collective Society
    361 words
    In comparing the collective society in Anthem by Ayn Rand, and the society that Prometheus envisions at the end of the book, there are many differences, and few similarities. The collective society is all about unity, and people living, breathing and doing everything together, while the way of life Prometheus dreams of and is hoping to create is free and not limited. There are no pecuniary concerns in either group, because there is no money. It seems there is not a need for capital. The people c...
  • Next Part Of Plato's Perfect Society
    1,011 words
    Plato's Ideal Society To fully understand the social and political thoughts of Plato, it is best to refer to The Republic, which was written by Plato. The book spells out the goal of society as well as a blueprint to follow to obtain this goal.
