Utopia is the perfect world that we dream of and that we will never reach. Historically the fight for utopia has often led to dystopia, when the only way to make progress has been to enforce one’s vision through totalitarian approaches.
Our aim is not the perfect world, but protopia, which is a vision that takes into account multiple perspectives, acknowledges that there are always many trade-offs to consider and avoids throwing the baby out with the bathwater when making changes to the system.
Nobody has all the answers for how a better system will ultimately work and look like. What we propose here is a process of trial and error, an evolutionary search process towards protopia.
