ABSTRACT
The article focuses on Utopia, a concept where all people in the society, are free and happy, it is an ideal society, perfect for everyone. It states that Utopia can be achieved by liberation of the instincts, by removing the surplus suppression of the economic and political monopolies. It further states that drugs are a favorable way of reaching inner Utopia. The distinction between the classic Utopians and the new generation Utopians is also presented with the viewpoints of the greatest of Utopian thinkers, Plato who promoted, reason over emotion. However the new generation Utopians socialist thinker Charles Fourier gave self-expression and emotions more value.
