Examples of utopias

A utopia is an idea or belief that describes a perfect life. The term began to be used by Tomás Moro, author of a work with that name, to summarize what is related to a perfect society and world, in which people live together in harmony, complying with rules and enjoying everything that nature and governments They offer us.

Utopias are used by authors of short stories, novels and other genres to describe their vision of the world they want. Some people believe that utopias can be possible as long as people accept the need to change for the better.

It is not about creating fantasies with mythological beings or those who are no longer on the earthly plane. It consists of virtualizing everything we have, but with improvements that seem almost impossible: better governments, better laws, better regulations, better citizens, countries without crisis, without crimes, people with more desire to help , etc.

We see these types of ideas developed in books and movies. Next we will see some examples in which you can find popular utopias.
