In my latest blog I wrote I interviewed some people about the topic 'our world' and its future. Today I want to share some of the answers I got with you. I was curious about the Utopian worlds of other people. I asked how the world will look like in 2100 and in 2750. I am wondering what 'happiness' means to you.
Here are some of the answers I've got:
“In a Utopian world there would be no money, no careerism, no cars, no wars, no FPÖ, no oppression, no extremism, no carnivores. Philosophy would take the place of religion and everybody would have a nice, but different garden to take care of.”
“In my Utopia the earth is a peaceful place to live filled with cultural diversity. People regardless of their origin, culture, religion, or gender show mutual respect and tolerance. People have universal access to drinking water, food, education and the healthcare they need. Humankind respects nature and treats our beautiful planet with love. The earth has recovered from human exploitation and looks healthy and green.”
“The earth in 2100 is an earth where one is extremely ambitious about making career, capitalism. People work very hard, which makes that there is always welfare, but also a lot of stress, burn outs, jealousy and greed.”
“I want us to fly, like fireflies. Happiness exists out of moments of happiness, when I have those moments I have tears in my eyes. You find this in the little things and it only happens rarely.”
“Here, on earth, we are just a bunch of people trying to figure it out together. I think a lot about life and I am sure that there are other worlds like ours in the universe we don’t know about. I would love it to take a look there.
I also believe that people we call ‘mentally ill’ here, will maybe function much better in one of those other worlds, because the way of living is just different.”
I am curious what you think. What is your Utopia like? How does the world look in 2100 and 2750? And what does 'happiness' actually mean to you?
