Utopia is an ideal community or society possessing a perfect socio-politico-legal system. The term has been used to describe both intentional communities that attempt to create an ideal society, and fictional societies portrayed in literature. It has spawned other concepts, most prominently dystopia. Many books that deal with "utopia" are actually putting out a plot or message of a "false utopia".

G.K. Chesterton
[A] permanent possibility of selfishness arises from the mere fact of having a self, and not from any accidents of education or ill-treatment.
