Jill Varady Utopia Essay I think that everyone at one time or another imagines what the perfect life would be like, but what is the perfect society? What is “Utopia”? What does this word mean to you? What would be your idle “Utopia”? “Utopia” means, an in a perfect world, especially in its social, political, and moral aspects. It is a world of your choice, a world that meets every single expectation you have of life. When I think of the ideal society, I imagine a life where people are accepting of the differences of others, raise our children to improve society, and work together as a unit toward a common goal. People are born with natural tendencies towards being shy or outgoing, clever, musically inclined, strong, short, solid or slender, etc. We as a whole are closer to Utopia when we as individuals are able to rise above our distrust or dislike of others who are not like we are. This is not something that just happens. It is something that each person has to realize, understand, practice at and put into practice. In More’s Utopia, everyone is equal. Everyone is satisfied. I’m not too sure that everyone can be satisfied; there is nothing to prevent people from wanting more than their ration resources. Everyone gets fed up or bored with anything in this world. I know I sometimes get bored doing the simplest little things, so if I can get bored that easily, that who’s to say that the entire population will not get bored with a perfect society?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
