Is it really a bad or useless thing to look for a utopia that we can realistically achieve? Or is it that our entire culture (theists and non-theists included) is under the theists' spell that anything other than God is bad? That man is corrupt and can ammount to nothing without God?

Is it reality to think we can do better than what we've done so far? You know, build on the shoulders of giants? Theists fight for the status quo or if there is to be change, for the change to take us back to ignorance. If we break the theists' spell and seriously pursue a better society, why shouldn't we think we can achieve what we set out to achieve or better?

I support The Free World Charter and The Venus Project because, until now, nobody else is taking the goal of a better society seriously. And I don't agree with or support continuing with the staus quo.

Another rant by the crazy man.

@Eric - Yes, when you compare today to 500 years ago, or even just 100 years ago, there is a big difference. But I think that there could be an even bigger difference if we lived in a Utopian world. I think The Venus Project has come the closest to that Utopia. If anyone can do better, I will support them, but I am not qualified to do anything else but spread the word.

You're not crazy. We can be better. We are better in many ways than, say, 500 years ago.

I read that and it reminds me of Star Trek and how they no longer use money. I like your rants - they keep things interesting!
