    Eh, I'm not sure that we've really had a century of socialism. In social realms, maybe, but less so in economic. Yes there has been movement that direction, some, but we also started far from it. To me it seems like natural fallout from increased globalization that systems have become more universal and more limiting. I think if anything the direction the US is moving in right now is plutocracy, and it seems to me that the energy of the right is excitement about money. That's not my kind of utopia, personally, but to each their own.

    I'm not a big fan of utopian ideals, as a rule. They get rather murdery and evil. Perhaps the only utopia I can think of is living with a people who have no utopian goals.

    I think the right is caught up in a little bit more than money. It's this fervor for individualism that's got them starry-eyed.
