Utopia by witb312

for my perfect utopia, id wish to live in a time of futuristic technology, but with the style of ancient rome, i.e. tunics, togas...

circus maximus races etc. but implemented with technology to provide for better health, more efficient means of transportation and other...

April 19, 2010, 11:07 am - [2]

things to help aide/ease day to day living. as far as transportation goes, chariots would still be used for style, but not long journeys.

April 19, 2010, 11:08 am - [3]

advances in technology wouldnt apply to an army, because in this utopia there would be no need for war, but an army would still exist.

April 19, 2010, 11:09 am - [4]

The purpose of the army would then be for show, more as a club to join to maintain and practice old rituals similar to a modern fraternity.

the landscape would be very similar to the landscape of Rome, but the rocky soil would be able to easily support things other than olives...

April 19, 2010, 11:13 am - [6]

because in no utopia of mine will i be forced to eat olives. although olive oil and wine will still be abundant.

April 19, 2010, 11:13 am - [7]

The society will be similar to that of ancient rome, not a fast paced society of today, but more concerned with the simple pleasures of life

April 19, 2010, 11:14 am - [8]

In this society I would be wealthy, or at least well enough off to not worry about expenses.

April 19, 2010, 11:15 am - [9]

As for a job, nothing with responsibility and accountability, like government, would do. i would be a philosopher, pondering the mysteries

April 19, 2010, 11:17 am - [10]

of life as a job. writing essays and books on ethics and ideals, changing the way people thought. People would accept what i said, or at...

April 19, 2010, 11:18 am - [11]

least wouldn't persecute me for what I said. In fact, it would be best if not everyone accepted what I said, for the challenge of proving

April 19, 2010, 11:19 am - [12]

believes would be the purpose of my philosopher job. I would study with the great minds of the land as well, the fellow philosophers from

April 19, 2010, 11:20 am - [13]

near and distant lands. exchanging ideas and thoughts and traveling from land to land to learn about their cultures and people.

April 19, 2010, 11:21 am - [14]

In the utopia, there would be no religion as to hopefully avoid conflicts over lack of religious tolerance that plagues our world.

April 19, 2010, 11:26 am - [15]

instead of seeking a divine being, the search for and acquisition of knowledge would be the highest honor achievable in the society.

April 19, 2010, 11:27 am - [16]

because knowledge would be so highly regarded, i would be well respected for my job as a philosohper.

April 19, 2010, 11:28 am - [17]

the government of my utopia would be a variant of democracy. everyone of sound mind would be given a say/vote in the goings on of the...

April 19, 2010, 11:29 am - [18]

society, and a few elected positions would be held to help regulate the land. A main difference from this government and that of modern day

April 19, 2010, 11:31 am - [19]

would be a common sense clause that wouldn't prosecute anyone against the law if the reason was something rediculous. the law would only...

April 19, 2010, 11:32 am - [20]

hold up if it made sense, for non logical beings cannot be governed by strictly logical laws.

April 19, 2010, 11:33 am - [21]

in terms of buildings and construction, the style of ancient roman buildings would be implimented: large columns, high arches, white stone,

April 19, 2010, 11:34 am - [22]

marble, statues etc. the roman gods would still have statues and temples, but only as decoration and landmarks because of the lack of any

April 19, 2010, 11:36 am - [23]

actual religion. we would have a colosseum like rome but there would be no slaves, nor would there be fights to the death.

April 19, 2010, 11:38 am - [24]

instead, the colosseum would be used as a stage for non death ending battles, plays, etc. It would be like a glorified amphitheater.

April 19, 2010, 11:39 am - [25]

as previously stated, we would have no slaves becuase we would never be at war so there would be no people to conquer.

April 19, 2010, 11:42 am - [26]

since knowledge would be the most seeked thing in this society, schools would be very important. our land would be known for having...

April 19, 2010, 11:46 am - [27]

the best schools and universities. In these schools students would advance as fast as they learned, not burdened by a class or a year,

April 19, 2010, 11:46 am - [28]

only burdened by their own capacities to learn. although, no one would be condemned for not being able to learn as well as others.

April 19, 2010, 11:47 am - [29]

instead, tutors and other forms of help would be readily available and encouraged to be used by all.
