    INTP Utopian Manifesto

    What would be in yours?

    End to all organised religion?
    Legalising all drugs?
    Outlawing emoticons?

    Free education.

    Ample library and greenspace.

    I don't see a point in organised religion or team sports but I think I'm too NP to want to force my ideas on other people. Though it would be nice to not have to hear about them.

    1. Make philosophy and critical thinking required components in early education
    2. Expand student exchange programs (compulsory?) to develop the sphere of cultural understanding and consideration, and to foster an appreciation for the beauty & diversity in the world
    3. Separate creative arts in schooling from educational metrics
    4. Radical shift towards transparency & accountability in government, introduce anti-corruption measures and reduce corporate influence in legislation
    5. Implement technocratic elements into government, whereby policy is determined by experts in the relevant field

    I like. In an ideal world, everyone's choices will be informed choices. To that end I'd add the subjects:

    Politics and economics. Basically, learn how society works.
    Comparative religion. People are going to be religious (or not); they can at least choose the best one for themselves.

    A planned economy, which adjusts production to the needs of the community, would distribute the work to be done among all those able to work and would guarantee a livelihood to every man, woman, and child. The education of the individual, in addition to promoting his own innate abilities, would attempt to develop in him a sense of responsibility for his fellow men in place of the glorification of power and success in our present society.

    Not really.

    It's just a demonstrably terrible idea.

    You can plan an economy (planning is a part of any economy, just usually done independently by many different people planning many different things).

    You just can't "centrally" plan an economy without ending up with an economy that sucks.

    An end to Multiculturalism. Protecting and celebrating the rituals and practices of a people just because they exist is a waste of time and resources. Instead, society should be designed efficiently. That means shaving off the fat, even in our own culture. The liberal value of pluralism, when applied to culture, values, and institutions, just creates more inefficiency. For example, we should despise Latin Americans for their lack of punctuality and industriousness, not celebrate it. Moreover, our own culture could do without wasteful rituals like weddings.

    -Luxury economy. Capitalism would exist, but only with regards to non-essentials. People would have to work a certain percentage their lives/time doing necessary work, and the rest of their time could be spent at their discretion.
    -Planned cities and infrastructure. As much as possible would be state of the art, with highly accessible/reliable public transportation options.
    -Education emphasizes liberal arts more to begin with (e.g. @Deckard's point). 4-5 year public service requirement at 18, after which free elective upper education becomes available.
    -Minimal immigration restrictions, but also high requirements to conform with cultural norms. Religious participation would be permitted, but children would be required to attend secular schools, religious rituals such as circumcision would be forbidden, no legal recognition of religious marriages, comprehension of the primary spoken language would be required, etc.
    -Lottery based government, with participation treated the same way all public works involvement is. Government officials would be administrators compensated the same as manual laborers.
