Opher’s World is Stranger than Never-Never Land

I frequently ponder upon Opher’s description of a wonderful government and society that he envisions for all humanity and admit that I could not post any major objections or even minor quips about that place.  It would, indeed, be a privilege and a pleasure to live there. Such a society would provide as much as any citizen could ask for.  So, I offer no objections to any of his goals in establishing and maintaining such a realm.

But reason and history prevent me from believing that such a system is even possible, and for that I am sad. Perhaps in another space and time this could happen.

Too bad as I would like to believe.
