The thing that people don’t understand about utopian fiction is that the conflict is external

Meaningful utopian stories may not contain conflict in the traditional literary sense, because the conflict lies between the reader and the dystopia of reality

@RobinHood It's interesting how people keep saying that utopian literature just can't work and can't be interesting, whereas in real life some utopian writings known as religious description of the afterlife, among others, have always been wildly popular.

@RobinHood Star Trek is a maybe good example of utopian fiction.

@RobinHood Good examples of utopian fiction:

-Island, Aldous Huxley
-Walden Two, BF Skinner
-Childhood's End, Arthur C. Clarke
-The Glass Bead Game, Hermann Hesse
