Utopia

We all want to make the world a better place. The problem is, that means something different to everyone. Utopian ideals are common in science fiction, though many writers, such as W.H. Hudson, shrewdly use them to point out how impossible it would be to achieve a real life paradise. Other works, like Joss Whedon's Firefly, suggest that trying to make every member of a society happy can have disastrous side effects. A perfect society in which everyone gets along is simply not human, and more importantly, it sounds boring. We'll take dysfunctional variety over forced monotony any day! And we'll have to, because guess what? We're humans!
