Did you Day Dream a Utopian Project? (May 19, 2009)

 

Have you day dreamt of a utopian project?  I have so many times day dreamt of projects that were to be ideal in profitability, organization, equitability, fairness, encouraging and promoting individual creativities, and leaving plenty of free time for individual accomplishment and continuing education.  There are moments in any one of these projects where the more utopian you strive for the more variables you have to contend with.  Every detail generates its down set of variability and quickly the interactions are too many for the mind to coordinate and analyze.  Suddenly, you end it as abruptly as in happy movies.  Yes, it is complicated but everybody should be living happily ever after. 

Then you are carried by curiosity: you want to take the dreamt up project further to its ultimate glory.  The more you resolve complicated interactions among people the more your solutions revert to totalitarian solutions and the more your answers smack of a one party regime reactions to diversities.  Then I realize that, fundamentally, I am not better than any dictator who managed to amass enough power to exercise coercions at will. Utopias are dangerous exercises of the mind and they sting potently the trust in our potentials to fairness and equitability.  The only utility to dreaming up utopia is to vent up the bottled up anger of helplessness to act and change.  Utopias are far more dangerous when a restricted and select caste of elites assemble to apply and enforce their sick view of an ideal society.  Utopias are not the solution and never will improve human conditions.  Read any samples of Utopias from Plato, to Tomas Moore, and to the Zionist ideology and you will realize that the end product is a subdivision of society by caste systems where people rule and the lower strata produce and serve; the end product is a huge set of rules and regulations that can put to shame the gigantic daily constraints of the Jewish Pharisee sect. 

Study the Utopias of those who managed to horde power from Napoleon, to Bismarck, to Hitler, to Mussolini, to Lenin, to Stalin, to Mao Tse Tong, and finally to Bush/Cheney and the end product was destruction, utter humiliation of the people, hate crimes, and genocides.

There are other kinds of utopias.  You have those forecasting the future, fifty years from now, in all sorts of topics such as political systems, emergence of new superpowers, technological breakthrough, social conditions, trends of how fast people will die of famine, and the increase in social divides among the wealthy and the dregs. Sure, those forecasters inevitably claim that they are analyzing current trends if all conditions remain controlled, though they have no idea what are those conditions and how they are controlled.  Forecasting the future is another way of thinking aloud individual utopia because no one is forecasting without strong biases as to his present mind set.

So far, the only valid forecasting time line is of six months; it is adopted by the analysts of market and fashion trends of the adapters in the age category of 20 to 30 years.  There is no doubt in my mind that promotional tactics biase people in believing that they are setting the trend by surfing the internet and disseminating their interests; but that how democracy should be at work.  Democratic systems should expose programs and disseminate them and then evaluate what people selected after a period of six months of diffusion among the active population.
