161 / Utopia

I have always believed in "utopian" thinking; that is, I have believed in it since my undergraduate days, when I studied "Utopia" for two years, as a participant in an Honors Program in Social Thought and Institutions.

The Honors Program was headed by Charles Drekmeier, and it was a life-changing experience for me. The lesson I took away was that the world we inhabit is not, truly, a "given," and that our individual and collective actions can transform reality.


  1. Great
    We need more like you
    Thank you
    Lets have a visioning for utopia, Santa Cruz/Monterey Bay.
    Lets save the best of what we are given and improve the things that we could make better.
    If we can't bring heaven down here, then where else?


Thanks for your comment!
