Response to Utopia

Thomas More’s Utopia ideas were very similar to ideas of Plato. There was definitely a bias towards pro-men stereotypes. Women had the role of cooking and taking care of the children. Men didn’t marry a women unless viewing her naked (naked inspections), but sex before marriage was prohibited. Daughters were just married off and were to live under husbands wealth. In this Utopia traveling required passports and identification and there was a universal health care for all making it free for all those living into the Utopia which did not seem like a bad idea. Under the Utopia no one made a profit or had increasing wealth. Everyone was under the same lifestyle. Although the idea seems like it could prevent greed and negative aspects that happen in a normal society I feel like a Utopia could not always stay so “perfect” forever.
