I don’t think we are anywhere near smart enough yet to start putting a system on paper that would look anything like a utopia.
I can do it in just three words. :-)
World Without Men.
Seriously. The overwhelming vast majority of violence in the world is committed by men. Remove the men, and a HUGE burden of suffering would be lifted off of humanity, and the trillions of dollars now needed to manage male violence could be redirected in to life affirming activities like health care and education etc.
The result wouldn’t be utopia in the sense of perfection. There would still be problems of course. But it would be utopia in the sense of having finally achieved the ever elusive “world peace”, at least in comparison to the current status quo.
Are we smart enough to even talk about this seriously, let alone do it? No, not currently.
But that’s because smarts is not the missing ingredient. What’s needed to reach this utopia is not smarts, but pain. More pain. Lots of pain. Human being learn primarily through pain. At some point the pain will reach a threshold where we begin to expand our vision of what is possible and necessary. Necessity is the mother of invention.
Yes, I know, this sounds like crazy talk. To see how it isn’t actually crazy talk, just flip the scenario on it’s head. Like this…
Imagine that in the future we somehow arrived at a world without men, and 95% of the violence which now afflicts humanity was gone, and health care and education were universally well funded. Then some naive young gal has a big idea and stands up and says, “Hey, let’s bring back the men!” Her friends sit her down in front of archival footage of the war in Syria and ask her this…
“Are you out of your ##%^&^$# mind??”
As you’re watching the horrendous global violence pandemic in your news feed, ask yourself this question. What is so important about male humans as to justify such an enormous cost?
If men were already gone, would it be rational to bring them back?
