The Utopian Ideal
Utopian ideals depended on the same principles that held Camelot together; that all man is basically good. This is wrong. Even though a society may discard gold and silver using them only as latrines other things will replace the traditional perceived evils. Marriage is not based on the trust of two people and their belief in God, but it is immediately believed that both are trying to hide something. If a man and a woman can not trust each other, how is the marriage supposed to stick together. Utopians try to suppress the noral tendencies of man by either trying to control the object of desire through devaluation or by allowing the evil to progress to a certain extent. Either way fulfills the lusts of the heart.
