Prompt:

What is a good society? Articulate your vision of a good society considering such factors as your assumptions about human nature, the reponsibilities of individuals in establishing and maintaining such a society, the role of various social groups and institutions from families to government, and how such a society would approach global problems affecting it as well as neighboring societies. Is it possible to achieve such a society? Must it remain a utopian dream? Or is it more of an ideal that we pursue, perhaps approximate, but never fully realize?
