My Utopia

In my perfect world all the people are equal. There are physical, racial differences among individuals, but these are not a reason for exclussion. In my ideal world discrimination does not exist.

In such an ideal society, people are generous and they worry about each other. They help each other. Human relationships are the most important. Individualism is not possible.

My ideal world is not globalized. It is organized in community life. Technology is present, and all the benefits and comfort of modern life are available.

Couples marry in my ideal society. They have children. Family life is crucial. Parents devote exclusive time to every child, and they work just four hours a day.

The salaries are good. All jobs are paid equally because everybody understands that every single piece of work is a valuable contribution to society.

Spiritualty is also vital in my perfect society:  Everybody is a believer. Although there are differences in beliefs, there is a deep sense of respect. As a result, people share their views and just focus on the positive aspects of their faith which can enrich their neighbor's perspective, instead of arguing on doctrinal differences.

Education is the base of the whole system. It has great quality and it is learner-centered , integral and task-based.  It aims to develop the human being as a whole and all types of intelligences are taken into account.

In this utopia, conflicts and problems do exist, but they are solved through dialogue and reasoning. Therefore, the word "war" is not part of the dictionary.

In these lines I have described what Utopia means for me. Human beings would be so happy if we just could put all this into practice, but ...

... unfortunately, human beings will never be capable of such perfection. In my view, this world is getting worse and worse. There is no political system or social revolution that can lead us to perfection. The Human Race is decadent and it is destined to disappear.
