In lieu of actual content, I give you two quotes on Utopia. Our first comes from Jean-Francois Revel:
Utopia is not under the slightest obligation to provide results: its sole function is to allow its devotees to condemn what exists in the name of what does not.
Our second is from the always charming James Lileks:
I'm interested in keeping other people from building Utopia, because the more you believe you can create heaven on earth, the more likely you are to set up guillotines in the public square to hasten the process.
Two different thoughts expressing an underlying scepticism towards the dreamers of Utopia. I'd offer you a larger lesson, but I'm fresh out of big ideas.
