Everything we enjoy about modern life was once considered a utopian fantasy.
Five hundred years ago, Sir Thomas More imagined an island nation he named Utopia, which offered freedom of religion, access to education, meaningful work, and women in leadership roles.
This was a fantasy at the time. Utopia was everything that Old Europe was not.
Over the next centuries, people dissatisfied with the Old World would travel to America and the utopian ideals became realities that changed the entire world.
Now Europe rejects the divine right of kings and thinks constitutional republics and democracy make sense. Things once considered Utopian fantasy became reality.
Thomas More was eventually beheaded for refusing to take the Oath of a King’s Supremacy. We don’t need to long for an island Utopia like Thomas More did. We can build them now, in this lifetime.
