In the spirit of WikiGnomes, I took down the broken link to cinephile, and replaced it with these. Perhaps it has something to do with the idea of PayItForward...it may be utopian, but it's still working...
Isn't this a little bit utopian?
Any idea to change the world for the better will always seem utopian at first. But even if only a few people do it, it's still a big step towards making life easier for everyone, and improving our quality of life. Thinking about PayItForward always makes me feel more optimistic about everything!
It would seem to me the that essence of a society is that you put into the pot even if you don't derive direct benefit from it simply because you are weaker on your own. Hence this is not a utopian ideal - it's a necessary behaviour for a well functioning society.
