The Institute for Liberal Values
In this episode Mike and Elizabeth discuss the idealistic hopes of utopianism and the difficulties of implementing them in real life. Mike covers philosophy, and Elizabeth includes references to some famous psychologists who suggested that their field would be at the center of successful utopian community life. We connect utopianism to current politics and communism.
