I've been thinking about Dystopian/Utopian Societies ever since reading: THE GIVER, an engrossing page turner that will make every rainbow seem more magical.
Last year, I left a copy of THE OLD MAN AND THE SEA at my Costa Rican cabana, after reading the book with relish. The Hemingway tome was still there in 2022, tattered and well-read. Beside it was THE GIVER. I devoured THE GIVER like a ripe papaya - yum.
Koreshan State Park in Bonita Springs, Florida, is the location of a Utopian society called Koreshanity, founded in 1894 by Cyrus Reed Teed. The followers believed the entire universe existed inside a giant sphere.
It's a fun place to learn some unusual history and do a walk-about...
