The Almanac's Exclusive Symposium on Utopia

1. What would the physical environment of your utopia be like?

FULLER: As near perfect as possible. Technology would provide a high standard of living for all. Man would have as much control over his environment as possible--controlled climate, for example. There would be no nations, no borders, no government as we now know it, no wars, no fierce competition. Everyone would be a world citizen, a born student of life and nature, a comprehensivist, uninhibited, benevolent, appreciative of himself and other.

HALL: Tall trees, birds singing, shimmering lakes--quiet--a blend of flora and fauna. Temperature ever in the 70s, with the water temperature in the 80s, and in the 20s in the mountains that surround the area.

JOHNSTON: Silky and transparent.

KITT: All mechanical devices to be run by the energy of the sun.

LENNON: Typical.

MORRIS: In utopia there would be no questionnaires.

SPOCK: Much less industry, no trash, no pollution.

WALLACE: A small country divided into rural communities, each with a limited shopping center and gathering places for relaxation, talk, recreation. Like Venice, no vehicles permitted.

WALLECHINSKY: The cities would look more like the countryside. Streets would be lined with fruit trees and each block would have a vegetable garden, tended by senior citizens and children.
