Utopia: Thomas More

This “utopia” is in no way like a utopia that I would imagine. In my mind, absolute freedom of choice is an absolute. This does not mean that freedom comes without responsibility; however, I believe that in a true “utopia” individuals should have the ability to create their lives exactly as they choose. Not all human beings have the desire to farm or are capable of performing such tasks, nor do all people want to farm their own crops. Many of the best utopian ideas are just that, ideas. Some seemingly brilliant plans have negative effects because certain factors are not taken into consideration. One of the biggest factors is human emotion. When we feel that we are just going through the motions or are not happy in a particular circumstance, we very quickly become angry, irritable and depressed. It is not a true utopia with unhappy people!
