As the election draws near and all the parties try and sell us their particular brand of Utopia I have been thinking about what type of society I wish my children and their children to inherit.
Creative/Dream thinkers: those who are blessed to think in a different way to the established patterns, those for whom impossible just means not realised yet.
Practical thinkers: those who have the ability to see how to flesh out the ideas of the creative/dream thinkers so that they become reality.
Organisers: those who can resource the ideas with physical and intellectual materials for the building to take place.
Carers/Protectors: those who have the ability to nurture and protect everyone in society according to their needs.
Detractors: those who push against the system, even those with malice in their hearts. They temper dogmatic pursuit of idealist dreams by their actions. Helping the society to stay focussed on how to best enact the ideals that make the core of their beliefs.
Dare devils: those who push boundaries in testing new ideas, often at peril to their lives, making the untried become the norm.
In this utopian society, every single person would have value and worth. It wouldn’t be a bed of roses as we need to know and experience the whole range of emotions: in order to be able to truly experience times of happiness we need to have experienced sadness. It sounds so simple doesn’t it? When all is stripped away from party and self allegience it really is that simple. Do you dare to make this society with me?
