My Idea of a Utopian society, for us Tibetans and the rest of humanity

My goal is to create a utopia. What exactly is utopia? Every one has got its own sense and understanding of a utopian society. Utopia to me refers to an ideal society, which means a society where there will be no suffering. In other words, for me utopia is the proverbial heaven on earth. In this utopian society, all human beings are free and equal. There will be no inequalities; there will be no racial and religious discriminations. People will live in harmony with nature.

In such a society, human beings will live for thousands of years. They will not age. All kinds of diseases have been eliminated. It has no hierarchy. There will be no employers and employed. There will be no officials and organizations of any kind: governmental or non-governmental, and as such no regulations and control.

Food will grow in abundance. People do not have to buy them. They will not have to grow crops. It will spring up naturally, here and there, everywhere. All kinds of fruits will be available; eating them will prolong one’s health and longevity.

Such a society has already renounced warfare. There will be no conflicts among the people. Love, peace and pleasure would reign. There will be no private ownership of land and property. People will share the abundant wealth of the society among themselves equally.

Men in such a utopian society look handsome and charming. The women, especially, are extremely pretty and graceful. There would be no religious and moral scruples to keep the man and woman away from dating and making love with each other.

The weather would be pleasant: mild sunshine and cool wind always. The sky would be clear and azure. There would be no storms and blizzards. Sunshine in fact is all embracing and permanent. Darkness is something alien to such a society. There would be no rainfall; as such, no threat of floods.

For citizens of this utopian society, the sweet songs of peacocks and other singing birds will greet their day. There will be no competition among them. They don’t have to struggle for livelihood. Their only activity would be to meet among themselves, organize parties, during which they would drink sugar-sweet wine, play games, read poetry, sing songs, perform opera, theatre and dances, in short enveloping themselves with all kinds of merry-making, happiness and culture-enhancing activities.
