    So, does anybody believe in the possibility of achieving a utopic society?

    Is a social or societal utopia achievable?

    Describe your thoughts here whether they be pro or con.

    In general all knowledge and progress is incremental. Reaching an "ultimate static good state", what More meant by Utopia is no more possible than knowing everything. Can we get to someplace that is good, moral, just? I woulkd argue that we have done pretty well since Locke, Montesquieu,and Smith. In another two or three hundred years, given the same trajectory, we may be at a place where we might as well utopia.
