Quote of the Day – February 12 2012

“Nothing, not even a Utopia, can necessarily make the pursuit of happiness a successful one that ends in capture. The best society can merely allow every individual to flourish in the pursuit.”
–Daniel Nettle, Happiness: The Science Behind Your Smile

Stray thoughts on creating utopia:
relative utopia
everybody living according to their vision and helping others live up to theirs
perhaps then the key to forming utopia
is helping each person define their own definition of it
helping them realize that as they change the definition will change with them
and becoming ok with it
thus Utopia is evolutionary and evolving
Utopia is a touch stone
so much of it is subjective
to help someone have just a moment of their utopian vision
one moment to let them know its possible
and the ability to see where they are standing in their own way to realize it
Corruption comes in most often when one or a group start insisting that their view of utopia is the only right one
or when greed fear or anxiety kicks in and finds space to flourish in….
How would you go about building a utopia.
