Utopian family and society / utopian society and family.
The utopian family does not exist or are there traces of such in our society? Is it possible to see tendencies showing a way for future kinds of families and family structures? It is difficult not to sample already existing family models - using these to create new images out of the already existing – in stead of letting go of all experiences - to see something new that we could not visualise or did not think was possible…family as broader definition than biological facts – family structures which are based on interests - ideological families with values in life in common - alike the communes we know from the sixties and up till today. As the commune could result in isolation from the society - the utopian family is something else – more likely a new image of how family structures could be - completely separated from the image we are living in right now.
Quote Zygmunt Bauman.
"In the light of the unpleasant characteristics, that freedom without safety – as well as safety without freedom – is loaded with, it seems like we will never stop dreaming of community, but nor will we find any self-appointed community which can give us the delights we enjoyed in our dreams. The conflict between safety and freedom is therefore also the conflict between community and individuality. It will most likely never be solved and therefore with equal probability continue for a very long time.The hunt in vain for the right solution and the irritation from the solution which was taken in use, will not make us give up our search – but stimulate us to continue. Within our characteristics as humans – we cannot realize the hope nor give it up."
