Utopia is a novel written in 1516 by Sir Thomas More.
It is about the ideal society.
Our local church discussion group read an article about a contemporary panel debate on the subject.
We compared Utopia with Jesus' vision of the Kingdom of God and found much common ground.
The conversation then turned to the concept of the common good which, most agreed, has gone out of fashion.
The group concluded that our modern politicians would benefit greatly from a renewed commitment to the common good and the resurrection of ideals.
