What happens if you meet everyone’s needs, give them all the creature comforts they could want while removing sources of conflict and strife?
They quit. They stop living. They lose all interest in having sex. The entire civilization ends up dying out. What is amazing is that while this is obviously true (and playing out in real time in Europe and Japan and elsewhere), it is also true in the animal kingdom, where a mouse-utopia ended up with every mouse dead.
Man does not live by bread alone, and neither do animals. When we live in a “perfect” stable world we stop having children, we become self-obsessed (the video speaks of the beautiful mice who just groomed themselves to look fabulous), and before we die out entirely, we engage in pointless strutting and random acts of violence.
We crave ambition, adversity and purpose. Where we lack these things, we, like mice, lose the will to live. Utopias are doomed because the foundational premise is wrong: man does not want to be happy.
