Your approach and idealism has been tried before, want to guess how it ended?
Yes it is so nice to preach the ideas of "liberty, equality, fraternity" but when you come to the sensible conclusion that utopianism is merely a
dream, an incredibly destructive one at that, and then perhaps real solutions can be found for our problems. You would prefer to burn the whole barn
down because we have a rat infestation, if your home needs major repairs I am sure you would opt to move rather than renovate the home even if they
were equal in price.
Tell me; since you want a burn it all down and try over is that not a form of utopianism? We all know utopianism is the foolish beliefs by
materialists in the 18th century onward beginning with the French Revolution which wanted a heaven on earth because they no longer believed in a
heaven within the afterlife. Utopianism is the opium of the irreligious, a very dangerous opium which has often led to deaths on scales never before
The overthrow you envision is the recreation of the French Revolution when nihilism is unleashed and the underclasses rise as mobs to punish all those
they feel have suppressed them. Revolutions are the natural state of absolute equality; hence the reason Socialism calls for perpetual revolution.
When nothing can stand still or organize there can be no hierarchy it is the fulfillment of equality, democracy, and individualism in their purest
form. Eventually they result in people turning against each other and massive loss of life; i.e. the Reign of Terror, Gulags, Great Leap Forward, and
the policies of Pol Pot.
Want to know the results of your aspirations? Look at our past 220 years it is the story of blood spilled by visionaries. It is a dangerous history
causing more death than all the evils it rails against.
