The dream land of abandoned paradise has always attracted people minds and some of the most powerful of them was trying to create such dream land within their countries. Another group of dreamers were not much interested in crucial political and social changes, but they could develop the idea of ideal society in written form. Sir Thomas More wrote his ‘Utopia’ in the early sixteenth century willing to discover new minds and attitudes in the society of the Middle Age.
More’s attempt to demonstrate an ideal society had an aim to help people find their happy land and endless harmony. Thus, More’s ideas in Utopia would have definitely interest people. However, there are not so many followers and advocates of the society described in ‘Utopia’. So why are people not interested in being Utopians? Don’t they really want to live happy in harmony? The answer is no.
No, because people do not want to be equal! Yet, people are striving to become free, but they do not want to be equal and they want to have freedom and selfhood while residing in variation, existing within limits of unity of intention, they do not want to reside in uniformity. Some even say that More’s Utopia constitution given in his novel outlaws the superior Law of Human Nature. More even managed to inhabit slaves in his ideal world although these slaves are saved from execution of hard and dirty works.
People should strictly follow the laws and it is a good idea because good laws can do only the best. But who knows what is the best for everybody? Are you sure that your favorite TV programs trasmitted after 11 pm are the best thing to watch for your neighbor?
