Everything beautiful, peaceful and the ultimate in learning experiences. Great health and all good, natural food plentiful.

A world where everyone respected one another. Would be nice for everyone to love each other, but being a realist, neither is going to happen.

A complete socialist takeover with Obama as the dictator lol….

Everything would be green, and everyone would be a hippie lol. And I’m serious about that one.

@Blackberry Green in what sense? Ecofriendly? or Forestlike?

CMaz's avatar

What we are living now.

Anything else is make believe and fantasy.

@Aesthetic_Mess Oh, I meant forest-like.

Everyone recycles and uses everything to the very last, nothing is wasted. Everyone rides their bike to work, and wears vintage clothes – their is no fashion. There is no advertising. Everything that we buy or eat is healthy and good for us. The highest paid people are, in no particular order; doctors, nurses, guards, and teachers, because they are the people that keep society civilised and working. There is no Rhiana or diet coke. Basicly a society that is sustainable and happy. Thats my utopia.

@lemming what do you mean no fashion? or what do you mean everyone wears vintage clothes

lemming's avatar

The manufacturing and disposing of clothes and fabrics is really bad for the environment. There’s no fashion – I mean people aren’t running around copying each other in how they dress, or feeling like a complete fool when they are wearing something that is not ‘in’ anymore. It’s pointless and it has it’s roots in this being a capitalist society, where everything is all right as long as we’re buying, buying, buying.

You leave me alone and I’ll leave you alone.

A place where people can love freely whoever they want, form families however they like and express their gender identity in any way they see fit.

An unattainable fallacy.

@Simone_De_Beauvoir I hope you don’t mean love as in sex. Adults having love with children is abhorrent.

A society where everyone acts responsibly in their own best interest.

Simone_De_Beauvoir's avatar

@YARNLADY I mean love as in love but I’d say the same for sex (between consenting adults) – I don’t think I ever gave anyone the impression that I condone sex with children.
