Detailed eutopia in essay form based on the proposition that there is no free will “because his nature also compels him to prefer of available alternatives the one that offers greater satisfaction. . . (22). As a result, “THOU SHALL NOT BLAME” (23). The first result is that hurting others, even by accident, can no longer be justified. This is applied first to sexual relations, which will never happen unless both people want to get married, and marriage, which will last for life. In the economic sphere, everyone must benefit from transactions. No war. Guaranteed standard of living. Better child-rearing and education. Much greater freedom for all people.
