Publicae statu deue nova insula Utopia By Thomas More This is the best favorite book isb. This book was published in 1516 and it's divided into two parts The first one made my eyes feel exhausted so I can sum up all that just by saying that More found his friend Peter and this one introduced him to a fella named Raphael a man who visited several countries to satisfy his desire to see the world He shared some opinions of the political scenario of his time a bit familiar; whether you are talking about yesterday's kingdoms or today's democratic governments some things never change and talked about some general aspects of this awesome island called Utopia The other two guys couldn't believe that such a land could subsist since it was a place where for instance private property didn't existA million words and a couple of eyelashes later Raphael started to talk specifically about Utopia all things relating to their soil their rivers their towns their people their manners constitution laws And here I stop Laws This society has few laws WhyThey very much condemn other nations whose laws together with the commentaries on them swell up to so many volumes; for they think it an unreasonable thing to oblige men to obey a body of laws that are both of such a bulk and so dark as not to be read and understood by every one of the subjectsThat last line seems to have been uite a source of ideas to the great Kafka And I agree laws should be simpler everybody should be able to understand them; and that bureaucracy that sucks life out of people should be eradicated etc etc And so did the Utopians few laws and of course no lawyers they consider them as a sort of people whose profession it is to disguise matters and to wrest the laws; and therefore they think it is much better that every man should plead his own cause and trust it to the judge By this means they both cut off many delays Ignore this paragraph I need to vent and I am going to hide it for your own good view spoilerWell More this is a bit irritating It's not my fault that we have a collapsed legal system I'm not the one who spends a month signing one freaking paper Fu#% bastards that after two months they give you one lousy answer while the moron that also had to study tons of books for five fu#% years and has to watch those laws being violated just like that has to answer to the client and try to explain why the freaking process is taking like five years of hisher LIFE DAMN IT hide spoiler

I dream of Utopia Well I should say I dream of a Utopia which certainly isn’t Thomas More’s problematic version but my own version built upon the principles I believe in And that is all More tried to do establish something original based upon his own ideals and beliefs but he undeniably wrote through a filter His world is for me a complete contradiction; it’s incredibly progressive yet it is also outdated; it’s imaginative but it is restricted by the faculties of the sixteenth century it is extremely liberal though it is also stuffy elitist and fiercely conservative It’s a philosophy and an image of a better world; however it is one written by an upper class erudite scholar who was a politician and with it comes a politician’s caution and a misunderstanding and appreciation for the real working class society that he wished to improve and cultivate It's also written with a fear of reprisal I want to talk about what I consider the positives in his Utopia Moral responsibility truthfulness and honesty are traits More wants his Utopians to possess to develop a morally rich society This same society would be content with what it had; there would be no dreams of expansion or acuiring than what is needed on an individual or societal level And this I praise because in it I read suggestions of sustainability and a appreciation for not wanting than is needed As such the Utopians would never be instrumental in causing war though they are than prepared to defend themselves should they need toHowever in Utopia slavery exists And this I abhor no matter how More attempts to justify it He suggests that that convicted criminals should work and be placed in bondage and serve their overlords This is not Utopian because a true Utopia would seek to remove the causes of crimes from man’s heart His Utopia also possesses a VERY STRONG patriarchal system not unlike and perhaps even stronger than the real world one but I am reading this through a modern lens so it is not inherently fair to criticise it exclusively on this point One notion that stood out to me is the idea of butchery and meat eating within Utopia No Utopian can kill an animal Instead the butchery must be carried out by “bondsmen” from other lands because the act leads to avarice and deadens the feelings and sensibilities of the person involved So they keep it out of sight and eat the conseuences of the bondsmen’s work This for me is weak More recognises that the act of killing animals impacts humanity and rather than outlawing it in his land he allows other people to carry out the deed Is this not selfish and a way of enjoying the fruits of someone else’s suffering What Utopia offers is a glimpse into a world that More believed could be better than his own And although he suggests that it is satire at least in part I believe it is a work written with political caution and a care not to offend the King It’s safe And I don’t feel like this is the book it could have been had More written exactly what he wanted with no conseuences You can connect with me on social media via My Linktree
