Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
No, I haven't.  Should I?  I suppose Utopia is a rather subjective concept.  But whatever your idea of Utopia is, once you achieve it, ... what comes after?  Is that a dangerous idea?  I think it might be.  

I went to a Catholic school, a place of strict discipline.  The only rules I ever broke were regarding the dress code.  I asked my very intelligent teacher why she was wasting so much energy over my untucked shirt.  What difference did it make how I wore my shirt?  Was a dress code just a way to make us conform?  She said everyone needs something to rebel against, and it is safer to rebel against a dress code than something else.  

It's something to think about...
