Alas, a utopia would work really well only in a perfect world

Imagine a utopia where everything and everyone is equal; a world where equality is reached without any government power used or forced upon its citizens. I mention no force being involved because I want the imagination to reach beyond thinking of Communism.

Both men and women are treated equally in the workplace. A woman can reach the social ladder at the same rungs where a man can reach the social ladder.

All races, including Chinese, Japanese, African-American, Caucasian, Asian and more will be equally treated when it comes to equal opportunity. Every culture will be treated equally, and everyone will know and celebrate the traditions of each one’s culture.

Even when it comes to government, let’s just say that every government will be a republic. After imagining this “utopia” of having everything equal and everything perfect, everyone knows that this is impossible. The best words to describe a world like this are impossible, absurd and unbelievable, because we all know that a society like this could never exist.

Why can’t an equal world exist? Having a perfect world where everything is equal would lead to an unstable society. Where there is perfection, imperfection is bound to happen. That is where the saying comes in, “No one is perfect, or nothing is perfect.”

A woman and a man are two different beings when it comes to thinking, and even when it comes to physical attributes.

Using labor as an example, typically a man is seen as physically stronger and more capable of carrying heavy objects. A man would probably be chosen as a truck driver over a woman who applies for the position because the boss would assume he could lift heavy objects.

Yes, there are women who are stronger than men, and not just body lifters. Realistically speaking, society isn’t set up to believe that women are

stronger than men.

Can men and women really be equal in the workplace? I wish both men and women could be equal, but this is one example of why this perfection would fail.

When it comes to culture and race, treating everyone as equals is a good idea, but unfortunately, things aren’t that way.

Throughout history, many race groups have been oppressed, and many struggles have come from oppression. For example, Mexicans and African-Americans have experienced different struggles, so it is difficult for both groups to be treated as equal. If no race in history ever had a revolution or civil war, it would be easier for everyone to be treated as equals.

Likewise, everyone has his or her own cultural background. Some cultures date back to their ancestors.

Having one’s own culture is very unique; it is what forms the internal roots of a person. If everyone shared the same culture and style, it would be impossible to have one’s own identity.

Every individual having his own identity is healthy for society, rather than everyone sharing the same beliefs.

It doesn’t sound like a bad idea to have a perfect world where every country has a government that is exactly the same. The process of voting would be easier; everyone would have the same benefits like health care and Social Security.

No confrontation with foreign countries would start, which would lead to no wars or political conflicts.

Having equal governments everywhere would lead to world peace?

Or would it?

Can world peace be maintained through perfect equality? No.

There will always be a person who wants things to be different, a person who will disagree with the way the government is being operated. When the perspectives of one person is seen and heard, then other people will become persuaded.

People will start to think of new ways to form a government because it is impossible for every country to have the same government.

Countries differ in the way they live, economics, natural resources and many more important factors.

In the end, a true “utopia” of equality can never be reached because, with equality, there is bound to be an imperfection.
