    I've seen a few other "If GF were" threads and I thought this one could be interesting.

    If GF were a closed Utopian society, what would your immediate thoughts be? I won't lay out a specific question about who would do what, or anything. Feel free to reply about whatever comes to your mind first.

    Granted, "Utopian" describes the idea of a closed "perfect" society. There would be no guarantees that it would actually work. :lol:

    it'd be boring and I'd either A) Leave or B) Shoot myself if I couldnt leave.


    Just the thought of that Marxist Utopian Perfect Society makes my skin crawl. Theres no way in hell I'd ever want to purposely be stuck in that type of situation, it'd be flat out boring as hell especially in a world (situation like a forum) where the chaotic non-predictable human dynamic is needed. If we were all from the same Utopian bubble, what the hell would we have to talk about?!?!?!

    Hahaha. I guess your answer would be the same if the thread was "If you lived in a utopian sphere" but I have to agree regardless. :lol:

    yes.... yes it would.

    I'm a huge huge fan of the human element. The object of Triumph and Tragedy. It just seems like the way a Utopian sphere is maintained is that All victory is shared and all tragedy is shared. So in a sense, there really is no difference if every one is forced to share them. I enjoy a world where the strong survive and the best Win. To me it just blows my mind at the concept of "everyone should win" no... no they shouldn't, otherwise we wouldn't even need to play, we should just start the season at lunch, pick teams, and hand out trophies at dinner.

    GF as a Utopian society would be so boring :hah: there would be as I said already nothing to talk about. Hiei actually pointed this out a long long time ago. Someone had asked him why he was such a dick, and he said "Because if I'm not a dick... I'm going to leave. A forum where everyone gets along and enjoys every moment is lame"... thats not the exact quote but that was the gist of it. So yeah, just taking the element Hiei brought there alone... it'd just be so boring. The whole reason I enjoy forums in the first place is to learn about other peoples different experiences and to share mine.

    But as I said in the OP, there would be no guarantees that everybody would get along. Just as in any attempted utopian society, the human element could not be removed without removing the very reason for the society.

    So maybe add the word "attempted" before Utopian in the OP and see if that changes your answer. :lol:

    Ah true true, I suppose I'm jumping the gun and working on a perfectly Utopian state. But still.....nah, I still wouldn't, lol hell even with "Attempted" in it I think I'd want to avoid it even worse. Cause there's nothing worse than being somewhere thats trying to be something its not. But yeah, thats just me I'm sure there are others out there who would find the socialistic utopia a perfect world and one they'd find ideal to live in. Not I sir... not I.

    Ice hit the nail on the head for me when he said, "What would we have to talk about?"
    It wouldn't be GF anymore because everything would be perfect. If everything was perfect then it'd be boring.

    Why does Utopian have to imply that everyone is nice to everyone? :mischievous:

    Well, I don't believe that is possible. Unless we have a surgery when we are 16 to change our appearance and the way we think, no, something will be wrong and it won't work.

    Are we going to be bred by tubes and born into classes like Alpha?

    It would be pretty boring and the only entertainment may be the casual debate :/
