3.1.1 UTOPIA

on Tue, 06/11/2013 - 14:19

“Utopia or bust.” –Robert Anton Wilson

SPEAK of a utopian society and most people will dismiss the notion as a wishful vision of a world filled with only good, well-intended optimists where everything always works out perfectly for everyone. Unfortunately, we share the Earth with mentally sick individuals who exhibit skewed psyches with destructive intent. In our society it is possible for ambitious individuals with antisocial behavior to become empowered as decision makers. A study in 2012 suggested that one out of every ten Wall Street employees exhibits the characteristics of a clinical psychopath. This is ten percent, whereas the average in the general population is one percent. Given the high percentage of dangerous and corrupt people, what could be more risky than having a privately-owned Federal Reserve system with a monopoly on making money, backed up by a monopoly on military and private mercenary forces, in which such individuals can rise to the top of a highly centralized power pyramid?

There goes our utopia. Humankind is caught in the cycle of fear, greed, apathy and hatred. These human instincts drive hierarchical political systems and bureaucracies that often limit the basic human right of the pursuit of happiness. To begin looking into a utopian scenario, it will be necessary to dismantle the current plutocracy, ruled as it is by a few extremely rich people. A country or society governed by the wealthy will never care for all individuals, but instead will focus on its own self-interests.

The dream of a “Golden Age,” first expressed by Hesiod, and various philosophical writings such as Plato’s Republic, has become a reoccurring theme in literature. Many have attempted to define the ideal society. For some, the dream has turned into a nightmare, a dystopia, which will also be covered in this section. Such dichotomies between the two possibilities come exactly at a time when we find ourselves at a critical turning point in human history. The path we are on is veering towards a global police state, the markers being the erosion of more and more human rights. We must change direction away from tyranny, but how? What are the guiding principles that would lead from war to peace, from hunger to abundance, from domination to liberation, and from total oppression to the freedom of an enlightened Golden Age? How can we work toward a world where no one is violated or coerced in any way?

Within our lifetime, we have the potential to create a peaceful and healthy civilization, one free of conflict and honoring the rights of every human on the planet. A world based on equality, integrity, freedom, and compassion. A world where everyone is able not only to survive, but to excel and pursue happiness. In a thriving society, no one is allowed to violate anyone else, except in genuine self-defense, which is redirected to peaceful resolution. And for the oppressive Powers That Be, let’s refer to them now as the Powers That Were, because their time is up. If enough of us withdraw our support, the global domination agenda simply cannot work. We have the power of nonviolence and non-participation, along with the position of moral authority, a force which Mahatmas Gandhi called the “simple power of truth.”

The very notion of utopia is static. Yet the survival of any social system ultimately depends upon its ability to allow for appropriate change to improve society as a whole. The paths that we choose have enormous consequences in the future. Our choices in the next few decades will ultimately determine whether or not there will remain intelligent life on Earth. The future does not depend on our present-day beliefs or social customs, but will continue to evolve as a set of values unique to its own time. Maybe there is no such thing as a “utopia” for all people, but we can surely do better than where we are headed. Think about not having to use gas anymore, or not having to pay taxes. Think about the poorest people in the world no longer worrying about having enough food to eat.
