The World Of Equality


Visitors: 136

More's Utopia is one of the most discussed and analyzed English books which describes an ideal world of equality. Though many centuries have passed since the first publication of this profound philosophical treatise, it still remains active, at least in the minds of all those devoted and passionate philosophers and men-of-letters, by constantly triggering disturbing, and at times, painful debates and discussions, both with their own minds and hearts as well as with other fellow thinkers. Being a humble and young member of the aforesaid group of thinkers as part of my chosen vocation, and having attended many long-drawn-out and yet interesting lectures on More’s Utopian ideals, I find myself mulling over the topical question with extraordinary seriousness and soul-searching.

Needless to say, the many years that have elapsed since the publication of this ground-breaking treatise have ravaged the novelty and rapidness of More’s ideas, so much so that a devoted follower of More might even look like a sanctimonious and anachronistic prude to a modern observer, who always makes it a point to imbibe and exude the zeitgeist of his times. But even this ‘modern’ observer, as he casts a perspicacious eye on the events and people around him, might doubt whether he is not being too judgmental of our devoted More follower, and might also express some. Willingness to lend his ears to those who have perused Utopia, though he himself may not even go near it or lay his fingers on its leaves, which have been dyed yellow by Time.

Passing on to religion, More had his own unique take on religion. His Utopia, which is an embodiment of perfection, also supports perfect religion. Utopia is only a creation of an idealistic thinker fecund imagination, which, after finding the real world detestable, sets about on the daring and painful task of creating a world of perfection, a world which is too perfect to be real.
