Equal opportunity through the expression of individual liberties.
I don't think it's proven yet whether or not free markets will work in this era, since a mixed economy, what we have now, is an economy bought by corporations;competition forced out with nonsense regulations and the Federal Reserve investing first in the businesses, banks or firms of their buddies with newly minted money. There is too much political pull in the history of countries that started out with free-er markets for anyone to say conclusively that they do not work. Because we chose not to substantiate our claims, I'll leave this thread with another "view": The reason the thieves up top have so much of our wealth is because free markets created more for them to thieve.

If it's true that there is a single origin of humanity out ot E Africa apx.150,000 years ago, then we are all family.
I love the goodwill and harmony that everyone strives for in this conversation, but i'm not convinced that these differences are the causes of big problems like poverty and war. Wars aren't fought for the sole reason of other people being different. Why does being a family change the game? Some people in the family thieve and murder. And because some realize that a sudden chemical rush in the brain of someone in Siberia does not affect their own happiness in any discernible way, they see no reason to help them out. The pursuit of happiness is not overridden unless you mistakenly believe that family members are all good regardless their individual attributes (and therefore see reciprocation in your future for every act of benevloence aimed at whomever).

I can;t help but state that the limits you suggest are unecessary in a truly economically free state, my belief being that dangerous concentrations of wealth and monopolies are symptoms of a government's interference. What I want to point out, however, is your neglecting individual liberty by advising that his society tax and implement a safety net with the state's help. The state being involved in commercial affairs necessarily means denying an individual his liberty. But reading the idea again makes me doubt that liberty was the goal of his utopia...because it's equal opportunity THROUGH individual liberty...and all of the requirements requiire that there isn't any.

Equal opportunity through the expression of individual liberties.
To guarantee the services and resources everyone in your society is entitled to, there must be a subset of people within it who are denied individual liberties. To get food, water, education, etc., human effort must be exerted (for now). Unless you can guarantee that it will be in the interest of a great many to provide the necessary resources, or guarantee that an amazing and futuristic technology that frees humanity from the bondage of working for sustenance will be available to all, some must be enslaved. There are a variety of means through which your utopia can be realized, and i'm afraid i can think of none that do not involve force, which is the antithesis of choice and individual liberty. Maybe your society should be established within an existing state that also values individual liberty, so that it becomes a choice to live there and make the community the way you want it, a place where people who share your values can make it happen without the power to enslave people to other people. Then you'd only need to find those people.
