What does your ideal community look like? How is it organized, and how is community life structured? What values does the community share?
If I were a good person, I imagine I’d want it to be all sweetness and light, with everyone being happy-chappy and falling over themselves (without injury) to help each other.
But I am not a good person, obviously. So much unadulterated saccharine would make me gag and run for the hills, which would be suitable punishment for being bad, given I’d rather live by the sea.
Assuming, of course, I hadn’t already died of boredom, been popped in a satin-lined coffin and farewelled with gentle tears and references to god’s plan.
But then what’s idyllic? Or ideal, come to that. Crime free would be good, but other than that… As far as I can see, however you interpret it, it’s fairly unnatural. Unless your perception of it builds in all the natural imperfections – in which case, why change the original?
Where I live isn’t idyllic, or even ideal, but I like it. I’m happy here. So I won’t be messing with it.
