Utopia, written in 1516, may be relevant today as students of political science and philosophy might agree. Thomas More, humanist, churchman and scholar
describes a fictional island society in which people practiced religious tolerance; everybody worked, all goods were community-owned, and violence, bloodshed,
and vice were nonexistent. This was the forerunner of many later attempts at establishing "Utopias," both in theory and in practice.
