The concept of the Utopian States is that of a more perfect United States of America. The attempt has been made to make small improvements everywhere. Since the United States of America has been a successful country for 200 years, large changes were avoided.
The Utopian States have endeavored to be a living government, always improving and changing for the best. An attempt was made to foster benign competition between the states to further facilitate the evolution of government and society.
The Utopian States also borrowed ideas from the Book of Genesis. Like the garden of Eden, the Utopian States models itself after a garden cultivating and encouraging the growth of that which is beautiful and good while resisting the growth of weeds. The allegory of the flowers and weeds applies to people, businesses, and states as well as to flora itself.
Utopia is modeled after the Garden of Eden; it is a government that allows people to do anything that they want, as long as they don't cause loss or injury to another. Utopia is a small, unobtrusive, and minimalist government. Utopia does not tax or throw people in jail. Like Eden, people can be banished.
Utopia is not communism or any other form of large, forceful, powerful or dictatorial government. Utopia does not enforce lifestyle or morality on an individual.
The system of the Utopian States described herein is that of a very simple government where the people macro-manage the country. The politicians obey the people!
Competition is more fun in the Utopian States than in the United States of America. Every able bodied person that makes an effort can win in the Utopian States.
In the Utopian States, the politicians are treated like engineers. We wouldn't tell an aeronautical engineer how to build a plane. On the other hand, I wouldn't want the aeronautical engineer telling me where I wanted to fly that plane. Ditto for politicians.
People are better informed than the politicians with regard to what is going on in their own lives, with their jobs, homes and towns. In the aggregate, people have a great deal of collective knowledge that is being overlooked in the United States.
George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and James Madison held Utopian viewpoints.
George Washington stated that "Government, like fire, is a dangerous servant and a terrible master,".
Thomas Jefferson penned these immortal words: "We hold these truths to be sacred & undeniable; that all men are created equal & independent, that from that equal creation they derive rights inherent & inalienable, among which are the preservation of life, & liberty, & the pursuit of happiness."
Thomas Jefferson got repealed all the direct federal taxes passed by the Federalists and boasted that ordinary Americans would never see a federal tax collector in their whole lives.
James Madison stated this: "I cannot undertake to lay my finger on that article in the Constitution which granted a right to Congress of expending, on objects of benevolence, the money of their constituents."
In the Utopian States, the rights of individuals to have employment or an income stream is as fundamental as the right of individuals to accumulate wealth and not be taxed.
