Words Poorly Used# 38 — Utopian

The people who would gainsay voluntaryism would claim it is utopian.  First of all, everything is utopian in that it is moving in a direction that someone sees as good, and it may or may not be based on false premises.  It may come to pass, and it may end well or end badly.  But why would the various failed versions of “state” be any less utopian (before they were dystopian) than voluntaryism?  Certainly one of the fragile premises is the modern semantic inversion where “utopian” is a derisive prediction of disaster.
