What about the concept of Shangri-La?
I'm thinking not just of the legend from the pseudo-utopian novel which was adapted to screen in Lost Horizon but a wider concept, it featured in Red Dwarf a UK sci fi series as a specially tailored environment in which all residents would have their every imaginable whim and desire satisfied but from which they could never leave (the AI which ran the environment needed the residents prescence to survive itself).
So if paradise was objectively a prison would you want paradise or prefer a freedom typified by hardship, desperation and destitution? Why? If you answer in favour of either how does it correspond with your lived reality?
