A-Z Challenge: U is for Utopia

© 2013 by Raymond Alexander Kukkee [caption id="attachment_1363" align="aligncenter" width="768"]The Peaceable Kingdom Edward Hicks The Peaceable Kingdom   Edward Hicks[/caption] U is for Utopia.  A state of perfection. Something none of us have, but everyone wants. Isn't that strange?  Every human being in the world has probably contemplated perfection at some point. Becoming perfect. Living in perfect conditions; Utopia itself.... No fear, sickness, poverty, or political problems.  No flat tires. No fire alarms. No headaches. No cheating, stealing or being bad.  Peace.  No war. No lack of jobs, no bills, no wants going unfulfilled. No reality. Wait.  That's a good point isn't it? No reality. A total suspension of reality.

Why is utopia never achieved?

Human beings are imperfect, so it defies logic to imagine a collection of old reprobates, crabby people,  profiteers, jealous spouses, broken minds, thieves, court jesters, diamond dealers, scientists,  bankers, kings and fools  working together to achieve perfection? Let us laugh raucously and proceed with our inordinately imperfect lives while we wait. You never know, it might get better. Keep thinking of perfection. Tongue in cheek. Fingers crossed. Ready?  We're waiting. It never hurts to dream.  It never hurts to keep hope in the heart. That's why U is for Utopia.   Is that Incoming I hear? Photo credit:  Wikimedia Commons +
