The first thing I would do in my better civilization is get rid of all reality shows.

Put your money where your mouth is, preppers.

There's already trainloads of hippie communes, sorry, "intentional communities," around.  Why not just film that?

Prove it?  Hell, Fox News has spent 24/7/365 trying to bleach Somalia and turn it into WeepingEagleBabbyJeezuzFreedomLand.

Don't you have to go primary Boehner and McConnell for being RINOs somewhere?

I could do it.  But like Colonel Falkenberg on Hadley, it would require too many broken eggs.

I would actually like to watch this. Not as a series, but just a recap of a years worth of progress when it is all over. I don't need drawn out melodrama or painfully dumb interviews/confessions. But it would be interesting to see what a group of strangers could build from scratch after a year.

When I think of a "utopia" operated by Farkers based on the political/social opinions posted on this site, this is the first image that pops to my mind:

So we get to see what kind of society a group of people would build while being filmed 24/7?

It's an actual observation. You are surrounded by those who are going to make this a better place with or without you, and you have little to no recourse to stop it.

So yeah it's totally true. And yeah your taxes are going to go up, too.

Wow. Another reality show. And I'm sure every single person they pick for this will have great teamwork and social skills so that there are no made for TV conflicts.

Liberals and socialists don't exactly have the best track record of making things better... granted you all do a good job of rewriting history for your failures and pretending you didn't harbor policies like eugenics in the past.

Well unless they let them rape and murder each other, there are already external constraints that make this show about as realistic as that other apocalypse show where fake bandits would show up and yell at people for their gasoline.

I can see this being an interesting experiment, but given they will pick people for drama and not survivability, it will all end in tears.

I want to know more about the logistics though.  That I am really interested in.

MyRandomName: Liberals and socialists don't exactly have the best track record of making things better..


haha no

Liberals take credit for nearly every social innovation of the past 100 years: civil rights, environmental laws, labor rights. Sure, dude.

Socialists would have had a better track record if the hardliners hadn't effectively wiped them out in the 1920s. But it's nice you think that someone like Bernie Sanders doesn't have a good track record as a modern-day socialist. Shouldn't you be hounding Obama to give up his Birf Certififict or at the very least start using real mustard on his burgers?

2014-01-25 03:21:37 PM  
so is it going t be like that naked survivor show where they start with nothing? or do they get to forage at the gap and whole foods?

wasn't there a primitive pilgrim show a while back? everybody had to live like it was 1800 or thereabouts.

in any event this sound stupid. make the group 500 not 15 and then see what happens.

It's totally going to have a bootstrappy cause built into every episode where liberals "learn" what it means to do real hard work instead of making pipe dreams on dope. Although a marjuana shop entrepreneur episode might be fun.

"The key questions Utopia asks are 'Are people able to create an ideal society from scratch?

No.

And will it be ultimate happiness or complete chaos?'," says executive producer and creator of "The Voice" John de Mol.

It will be like Lord of the Flies on pay-per-view.

"Because you need me, Springfield. Your guilty conscience may move you to vote Democratic, but deep down you long for a cold-hearted Republican to lower taxes, brutalize criminals, and rule you like a king. That's why I did this, to save you from yourselves. Now, if you'll excuse me, I have a city to run."
