Throughout history, mankind has strived to create an ideal society where all the needs of those who live within it are met. Government, free will and equality are all different variables of society that impact daily life. All individuals within a society uphold their own ideals, therefore, creating different views of what an ideal society is defined by. In America our Constitutional freedoms portray an ideal society yet, the ability to undermine said freedoms by wealthy and powerful individuals negatively impacts the general public. Renovating the imperfect system of litigation and corruption would ultimately present the ideal society. The United States is a superpower addicted to overwhelming military might. Our nation accounts for five percent of the world’s population, around 23 percent of its economic output and more than 40 percent of its military spending. America spends as much on its soldiers and weapons as the next 18 countries put together. “The United States,” notes the Quadrennial Defense Review (QDR), a report required by Congress on the future of U.S. national security strategy, “remains the only nation to project and sustain large-scale operations over extended distances.” During his campaign for the presidency, Barack Obama frequently pledged to reform the defense budget. But his defense budget, released in the same week as the QDR, shows no clear- cut separation from the spending habits perpetuated in the budgets of his predecessor, George W. Bush. It allocated more funds for Special Forces, helicopters, missile-launching drones and other equipment for the “asymmetric wars” in Afghanistan and Iraq but it also provided for a new aircraft carrier and attack submarines. My society will address the issues involved within military operations that are currently scrutinized by many individuals in current society. Currently in the United States, the voting system for federal, state and municipal elections allows for a representative government headed by a
the ideal society:
An ideal society is something that the human kind strived to achieve throughout the whole existence, a society where needs of the people regardless of their race, religion or wealth would be met. There has been pondering over the conditions of such system, and many great thinkers, such as Plato, Thomas More, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. etc have offered their opinions on them to the public over the years. A dream of ‘Utopia’, however, seems unreachable as of now, as ideals and….
AN IDEAL SOCIETY
The world is a complicated place and today's standards of society make it even more difficult to live and act in one's own way. I sometimes wonder what life would be like if we could start all over and build a brand new society - a society that guarantees social justice for all groups and full rights to every individual. Would there be a way to make everything and everyone equal? From the beginning society has been judgmental in one way or another, rather it is through racism….

This paper contains a personal opinion and rough creation of an ideal society. The society created is based on the personal values, present society issues and ideas from the reading and teachings of the great philosophers who have tried to build their utopias in the past. |
The perfect society does not exist. If it did however, it would probably sound much like the vacation brochures you can read….
on what an ideal society should be like. Society is defined as a body of individuals living as members of a community. Many scholars and well known authors like Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Thomas More express those ideas through public speaking or literary examples delivered to society. Although those ideas are just one person’s opinion about the subject matter. Others believe in the power of God and the belief that the world was created by him, which in turn developed societies amongst the….

An Ideal Society
We all strive to be perfect people and to live in a perfect world. However realistically no matter how hard we try to be perfect or make things around us perfect it is simply impossible to create a real Utopian lifestyle. Most of us have some type of vision on how we believe the world should be ran and the things we can do to have what some may call the ideal society. For centuries many countries, colonies and tribes have strived….
In an ideal society money would be eliminated because it's the center of a lot of our society's problems today. If money were eliminated there would be no social inequality, there would be no poverty or anymore starving children, men, and women. There would also be less violence and crime in this world. Money wouldn't divide us any longer. We would be valued for whom we are and not by what we wear or what we have or by amount of money in our wallets or bank accounts. Our value would be in ourselves….
The world is a complex place and today's standards of society make it even more difficult to exist and act in. In my ideal society it consists of knowledge, reverence, and especially equality. Knowledge is the information that people acquire and use to have a better awareness and understanding of things. If more people had a higher level knowledge, there would be less crime and a high rate of poverty. Reverence is having a respectful attitude towards something or someone that is held in high regard….
The Ideal Puritan Society
Puritans thought of themselves as members of the Church of England. Disgusted with the tainted modern religious practices, puritans tried to change that institution. They soon became frustrated with the lack of successful reform as English kings James I and Charles I persecuted them. The Puritans migrated to the New World to create a nation according to their own beliefs. The Puritan Society was a very restrictive and socially constrictive one. Massachusetts….
With this in mind, Marx gives us a solution to both the issues of freedom and class conflict in his critique of capitalism and theory of communism, which is the ideal society for Marx. His theory of communism is based on the "ultimate end of human history" because there will be freedom for all humankind. Marx saw communism as the ideal society because it is "the genuine resolution of the conflict between man and man- the true resolution of the strife between existence and essence...between freedom….
