Socialism: Utopian and Scientific by ENGELS, Friedrich
 
The main idea of "Socialism: Utopian and Scientific" (1880) was distinguishing scientific socialism and utopian socialism. Engels begins by chronicaling the thought of utopian socialists, starting with Saint-Simon. He then proceeds to Fourier and Robert Owen. In chapter two, he summarizes dialectics, and then chronicles the thought from the ancient Greeks to Hegel. Chapter three summarizes dialectics in relation to economic and social struggles, essentially echoing the words of Marx. (Introd ...

Moving the Mountain is a feminist utopian novel written by Charlotte Perkins Gilman. It was published serially in Perkins Gilman's periodical The Forerunner and then in book form, both in 1911. The book was one element in the major wave of utopian and dystopian literature that marked the later nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.

Freedom's Disciple

My name is Jonathon Dunne, I am Irish and I have had a life-long dream of becoming an American citizen. I love and respect America for millions of reasons but one of the most important is because it chartered a different course from day one... founded on principles and God's law and it is out of that love and respect that I would never break Immigration laws and move to America illegally. I grew up and live in a Utopian Socialist country where there are no eternal God given rights, and the p ...

Soul of Man, The by WILDE, Oscar
Daily+
 
“(T)he past is what man should not have been. The present is what man ought not to be. The future is what artists are.” Published originally as “The Soul of Man Under Socialism,” this is not so much a work of sober political analysis; rather it can be summed up as a rhapsodic manifesto on behalf of the Individual. Socialism having deployed technology to liberate the whole of humanity from soul-destroying labour, the State obligingly withers away to allow the free development of a joyful, ana ...

Born Again by LAWSON, Alfred

"I doubt that anyone who reads [Born Again] will ever forget it: it is quite singularly bad, with long undigestible rants against the evils of the world, an impossibly idealistic Utopian prescription for the said evils, and - as you will have gathered - a very silly plot." - oddbooks.co.uk Alfred Lawson was a veritable Renaissance man: a professional baseball player, a luminary in the field of aviation, an outspoken advocate of vegetarianism and economic reform, and the founder of a pseudo-s ...

UCD Scholarcast - Series 4: Reconceiving the British Isles: The Literature of the Archipelago
 
In his book, On the Shores of Politics, Jacques Ranciere argues that the Western Platonic project of utopian politics has been based upon 'an anti-maritime polemic'. The treacherous boundaries of the political are imagined as island shores, riverbanks, and abysses. Its enemies are the mutinous waves and the drunken sailor. 'In order to save politics', writes Ranciere, 'it must be pulled aground among the shepherds'. And yet, as Ranciere points out, this always entails the paradox that to fou ...

Modern Utopia, A by WELLS, H. G.
Daily+
 
H. G. Wells's proposal for social reform was the formation of a world state, a concept that would increasingly preoccupy him throughout the remainder of his life. One of his most ambitious early attempts at portraying a world state was A Modern Utopia (1905). A Modern Utopia was intended as a hybrid between fiction and 'philosophical discussion'. Like most utopists, he has indicated a series of modifications which in his opinion would increase the aggregate of human happiness. Basically, Wel ...

Several planes of existence collided on a fateful day at the beginning of the 21st century. Chaos and much suffering ensued, but out of the ashes came a band. This band would soon be known to end all suffering, stifle all hunger and thirst, and inspire a utopian society. It's too bad that at the same time that band was supposed to play their first show, a rift in the time-space continuum caused the members to be blinked out of existence and replaced by four random kids. The proxy band did th ...
