threat. Conventional and scholarly wisdom associates utopian ideas with
violence and dictatorship. The historical validity of this linkage, however, is
dubious. ... is not simply a psychological rejoinder, but a political reply to the
political project of realizing utopia. The record of utopian-inspired politics,
including socialism and communism, is decidedly mixed. Yet it would be a gross
distortion to attribute twentieth ...

81 Basically, the more he believed in the possibility of realizing utopia, the more
he was convinced that the ruling class opposed it and vice versa. This class was
doing its best to hinder realization of a utopia that would eliminate it. But this

manifesto. It was only gradually that socialists came to perceive that the
selfsufficiency of a small area could provide no foundation for Socialism. 1

They would be akin to a neocommunist movement, basing themselves around
the leftists in the CCP who had been shunted aside in the late PRC era. Unlike in
Mongolia, Russia and some Eastern European countries, the mainstream of the

power rather than realizing utopia. Those yearning for communism will not likely
try to resurrect it through the CCP. Instead one can imagine a “New Communist
