If a society is nothing more than a large group of individuals then the key to creating a Utopian society is to create a large group of Utopian individuals…
but if you can’t help an individual improve him/herself who doesn’t want to improve him/herself then there’s no chance of helping a society of people who don’t want to improve themselves….
and if a person who does want to improve himself will do so with or without outside help then a society of people who want to improve themselves will do so with or without outside help…
then if you don’t live in a Utopian society already, there’s a strong possibility it’s because the majority of people in your society don’t want to improve themselves. In which case there’s little hope of your generation living to see Utopia…
and any chance your society has of improving its wants will be minimized as long as the majority of people in your society spend 3-6 hours per day watching and listening to commercials designed to make them crave fulfillment of the most petty, self-serving, immediate desires humanity is capable of.
