"Instead of inflicting these horrible punishments, it would be far more to the point to provide everyone with some means of livelihood so that nobody's under the frightful necessity of becoming first a thief and then a corpse." - Thomas More

Democracy

Step Eight: Convince each constituent that government rule is limited by the ruling government. Refer to this as "checks and balances." Any who resist shall be publicly defamed.

Step Nine: Distract from truth with beautiful people.

"A map of the world that does not include Utopia is not worth even glancing at, for it leaves out the one country at which Humanity is always landing. And when Humanity lands there, it looks out, and, seeing a better country, sets sail. Progress is the realization of Utopias." - Oscar Wilde

Liberal Despotism

"I think perhaps we want a more conscious life. We're tired of drudging and sleeping and dying. We're tired of seeing just a few people able to be individualists. We're tired of always deferring hope till the next generation. We're tired of hearing politicians and priests and cautious reformers...coax us, 'Be calm! Be patient! Wait! We have plans for a Utopia already made; just wiser than you.' For ten thousand years they've said that. We want our Utopia now - and we're going to try our hands at it." - Sinclair Lewis

Anarchy

Step One: Completely eradicate the idea of control along with hierarchical dominance. Any who resist will be very lonely and, most likely, will sound very silly.

Step Two: Declare freedom for all. Any who resist will be very lonely and, most likely, will sound very silly.

Step Three: Maintain peace through solidarity. Any who resist will be very lonely and, most likely, will sound very silly.

"The belief in a political Utopia is especially dangerous. This is possibly connected with the fact that the search for a better world, like the investigation of our environment, is (if I am correct) one of the oldest and most important of all the instincts." - Karl R. Popper
