I’m kidding, but isn’t that the feeling some of us have at times? I’m certainly been guilty of it. I have ideas and plans that some would call crazy and utopian, but which seem to be worth pursuing from my point of view. Yet I see ideas from other people that strike me as utopian and unrealistic. So I’m acknowledging my biases right up front.
I don’t have any problem with people defining their own version of utopia. (I certainly know what mine definition of it is.) There’s a thin line between visionary and utopian, even if you accept the idea that there’s a difference between the two words. The thing that does bother me, though, is when people don’t understand that there are tradeoffs to be made. In the real world, when you gain one thing, you frequently give up another.
