If true utopia defines what is not desired, the gold-land of false capitalist utopia defines what is desired, over and over again. Such present delight enjoyed through the exclusion or exploitation of others is not Eden, it is hell, even if the enjoyer does not realize it.
Sharae Grace Deckard, Exploited Edens: Paradise Discourse in Colonial and Postcolonial Literature, 2007.
We have learned that it is not enough to define utopia, nor is it enough to fight against the reactionary forces. One must build it here and now, brick by brick, patiently but steadily, until we can make the old dreams a reality…We sincerely believe that there is no future that is not built in the present.
