My Vision of Utopia
There are many different definitions to describe a true perfect Utopia. The reason that there are so many people with many different ideas about the perfect world is because the act of making something perfect in a person vision of utopia is created to suit what that creator deems to be perfect. Perception is the key to understanding what makes a Utopia perfect and what makes it flawed. My view of a Utopia requires several different managements and trade-offs of what is believed to be best for the community. This Utopia cannot be strong unless it has a powerful backing of several democratic leaders, many sound and agreeable rules, understanding of peace, lack of war, and desire to work in harmony within the natural environment of the world and the entire community in which it resides.
The first issue of describing any fictional place is deciding where it will exist in the grand scheme of the world. I cannot imagine my utopia being able to work to well among a lot of already developed nations, the most preferred placement of my utopia is on a fairly large and decently secluded island somewhere amongst the ocean. The perfect design for this location would include a fresh water lake in the center of the large island alongside a fairly large mountain, and many trees along these areas. This would allow for all the general resources needed to sustain at least a fairly small growing community. The isolation of the island is rather important because it would be hard to maintain a group of people when outsiders are constantly interacting with them and introducing new ideas that could sway and test the Utopia before it begins. However, I would like the community to eventually be able to establish connections to other groups but only after this Utopia has balanced all, if any, problems that arise through the management of the island.
The next step is to decide who leads the community within the island to be the driving force of the laws and rules of the island. These leaders will also be responsible for settling disputes between common problems and then larger problems would require each leader among the Utopia. There would be about five leaders that are specially selected for their skills through the community voting on each position. The first of these leaders would be the educated leader; the people selected for this position would have to have a good understanding of technology, teaching, and the fauna and flora of the island. The second of these leaders would be the management leader; the people selected for this position would be very charismatic and quick thinking people, having the ability to direct orders and manage responsibilities. The third of these leaders would be public affairs; the people selected for this position have to be able to make decisions and remain unbiased in all situations, also be good at listening to citizens’ desires and needs. The fourth of these leaders would be security; the people selected for this position would be selected for their ability to understand protection and security needs of the island. The final leader would be the Entertainment Leader; this person would be selected for their understanding of the people on the island and their ability to set up events and manage parties. These five leaders would basically handle their specific areas mostly by themselves, however any leader can call attention to another leader if a problem extends into another leaders area. If the problem was big enough then all five of the leaders should get involved and help each other to create the best possible tactic. These leaders would be voted on every two years and can be re-elected as many times as the people want. The educated leader would have several duties ranging from monitoring basic education on the island to studying the fauna and flora that exists amongst the island, he will decide what can be foraged and hunted alongside with the management...
