the definition of utopia

Utopia would never succeed unless every one of its members were perfect and good. The reality is, noone can be perfect, much less all of us. We should keep that in mind when adapting our society and governments. The true definition of utopia is a government and community that accepts human faults and takes them into account, and isn't perfect, but does the very best that is possible to make our lives better and more functional

    Mar 4 2012: Utopia a the thought of the most perfect way something would work. An ideal situation in any context. Utopia is a place in a metaphysical sense that does not exist.

    One could say that utopia on earth would be a world without hunger, catastrophes, criminals and everything else related to bad and evil.
