A New World: Can we Build Utopia in the Real World?
If we do not have to start from scratch, it means we have a pool of wisdom and skills, built up and passed through hundreds of generations of humans to draw on. There have been many ways of addressing the issue of how to live in this world. Some may have been successful with certain groups of people or in certain places in the world or times in history, some may be more appropriate to now. But what is not needed is for us to reinvent the wheel. There is a vast pool of resources, knowledge and research waiting out there which needs to be applied and synthesized, recycled so to speak.
